Kerevi leaves his mark in opener

SAMU Kerevi provided the first "moment" of the match when he bulldozed his way through a Michael Hodge tackle that forced the Stars centre to leave the field with concussion.

The Fiji-born Kerevi made his Super Rugby debut off the reserves bench for the Reds when they met Highlanders in May before earning starts against the Western Force and New South Wales in the final two rounds of the regular season.

He noticed the change in tempo brought by the law variations and believes they have the potential to make the speed of the contest similar to that of Super Rugby.

The Brisbane City supporters were particularly impressed with the performance of inside centre Samu Kerevi, who posted try assists when he offloaded the final pass on three occasions in the second half.

"It's quicker than (Queensland) Premier Rugby, it was getting up to the level of where Super Rugby is," Kerevi said.

"Everyone is trying to strive to better themselves, so it's all good."

"So to see Samu Kerevi be able to play like this and just develop as a footballer is going to be so good for us next year as a Reds side," said Brisbane City coach Nick Stiles.

The NRC continues this weekend with the Vikings facing Perth Spirit in Canberra and the New South Wales Country Eagles to meet the Greater Sydney Rams at Coogee Oval on Saturday. Melbourne Rising will host North Harbour Rays at AAMI Park to complete the opening round on Sunday, with Queensland Country enjoying the bye.
