Watch National Rugby Championship NRC Live Streaming 2014 Round 8 Queensland Country vs Sydney Stars match will be kick off at Mike Carney Toyota Park, Hugh St, Townsville Saturday 11 October 2014 online, Time 15:00 AEDT and its broadcast On Fox Sports.
Townsville will get their first taste of the Buildcorp NRC as Queensland Country and the Sydney Stars head North for their match-up on Saturday.The Sydney Stars have a tough challenge as they continue to chase an elusive first victory in this year’s competition.
Country come into this fixture fresh off a hiding from the Spirit in Perth. They are second last on the ladder and have struggled to only one NRC win. They have a solid team though and despite last week’s result, generally have good defence.
The Sydney Stars have started to show some promise. They got a draw against Canberra and last week went down in a tight match to the impressive Eagles. But this doesn’t change the fact that they sit bottom of the ladder and have yet to win a single NRC fixture.
This is essentially a battle to see who gets the wooden spoon. They are also the only two teams with no hope of playing finals footy. I expect this to be brutal and spite filled as both clubs wrestle with what might have been.
Prediction: Country by 5
