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.
