The Reds trailing 24-7 at half time. Queensland staged comeback in the second half, but were unable to clinch a win in with Ben Daley, Saia and Anthony Fainga’a, Liam Gill and Curtis Browning playing there last game at suncorp for the reds.

The Reds won the second half but paid the penalty for handing the Rebels too great a head start.

Scrumhalf Nick Frisby and stand-in captain Liam Gill both scored for the reds.

Queensland’s defensive sting was lacking, and the Rebels capitalised by using width in their attack.

Perhaps the only highlight of the first half was Queensland’s try which was started and finished by Frisby.

Gill’s first try sparked a comeback, and it was game for grabs after Samu Kerevi made his way over the chalk.

The fightback lost its momentum, however, when Nic Stirzaker scored a try from a charged down kick.
