QRU Match No. 644 - Dominant Queensland win in South Africa


Queenslanders are Remembering

QRU Match No. 644 - May 14, 1994

The 1994 season began with an arduous three-week tour of Argentina, included the difficult political issue of Apartheid and ended with debilitating injuries to the world-class centre pairing of Tim Horan and Jason Little. Although tumultuous, Queensland notched 13 season victories including the first match under lights at Ballymore, the first win over Ireland and claiming the Super 10 trophy.

Queensland Representative Number 1048 Barry Lea scored his 7th try in his 8th match for Queensland, after receiving a bold cross-field kick from Micahel Lynagh in the Super 10 Final. A second try to Queensland Representative Number 979 Sam Scott-Young and 11 points from Lynagh's boot secured the 21-10 win against Natal in front of over 40,000 disappointed South African fans.


"The high point of the season overall was the magnificent win at King's Park, Durban to take out the Topsport Super 10 Trophy." - QRU President Leo Williams


The dual, left-leg injuries to Tim Horan and Jason Little sustained in the Grand Final threatened to end the pair's already remarkable Rugby careers. Gruelling off-season treatment and rehabilitation allowed the determined Queenslanders to re-take the field in time to successfully defend the 1995 Super 10 trophy, again in South Africa.
