Size no issue for City flyer


FLYER Junior Laloifi is smaller than Will Genia, which makes him a curious target for profession­al rugby sides obsessed with size because he’d fit on the key chain of new 125kg Wallaby Taqele Naiyaravor­o.

Laloifi, just 20, keeps challengin­g the size debate as two sparkling tries demonstrat­ed in Toowoomba yesterday when Brisbane City downed a spirited Queensland Country 44-24.

Winger Chris Kuridrani was eye-catching while teenage Queensland Country winger Izaia Perese damaged his left knee after beating four tacklers in a zigzag run.

Flyhalves Jake McIntyre (City) and Sam Greene (Country) had plenty of positive touches in a good sign for a Reds side searching for a playmaker.
