The Queensland Medical Students’ Tournament is back, and the 2014 edition promises to be even more successful than previous years (year). In two weeks’ time, students from Bond, Griffith and UQ will complete their pilgrimage to Keith Hunt Park MegaStadium, and congregate to worship at the temple of good times and football.
All three teams will fancy their chances, but it is the almighty UQ Reds (a.k.a. Herston Hatchets) who will take to the field as favourites. Devout fans will remember that UQ took out the inaugural edition of the tournament last year, by defeating Bond 1-0 in the final.
Despite several notable absences, including captain Jenya Demidenok (on holiday in his native Ukraine) and last year’s player of the tournament Corey Area (knee injury, 4-6 weeks), UQ are still sending a strong side to defend their championship and honour.
