Accused rapist Jack Scott Turner Winship has given evidence as his trial

Two Brisbane men accused of raping a drunk student as she stumbled home twice bragged about having sex in an alley.

Jack Scott Turner Winship and Ryan David George came across their alleged victim as they walked to meet friends in April 2011 and soon after were "all over each other".

The woman, who can't be identified, ended up in a dark alley with the men and they engaged in sexual interactions, their Brisbane District Court trial has heard.

The brief encounter resulted in the woman emerging from the alley bloodied, and rape and sexual assault charges being laid against Turner Winship and George.

The pair have been on trial this week. Turner Winship gave his version of events from the witness box on Friday.

After clocking off from a shift he went to George's Paddington home and drank five or six large glasses of rum, he said.

Jovial and tipsy, they strolled through to West End, where they ran into the medical student and began talking and laughing, Turner Winship said.

She first kissed Turner Winship and then George, the court heard.

"It was just a fluid sort of thing," he said.

Next, according to Turner Winship, they were involved in consensual sexual activity.

But the prosecution alleges it was far more sinister.

Crown prosecutor Dzenita Balic has argued the men manoeuvred the woman into an alley to rape her and targeted her because she was staggering drunk.

After the alleged rape, while Turner Winship and George walked off to meet friends at a nearby pub, the woman sought help from a man who described her as "out of it" with blood on her lower thighs and hands.

"She said 'these guys are trying to hurt me'," prosecution witness Michael Hayward said on Tuesday.

He ran to catch up with them and chatted briefly, he said.

One of them bragged of a sexual encounter in an alley.

And after the pair greeted their friends, they again boasted about what had happened.

"We had a sexual encounter, so yeah we told our friends about it," Turner Winship said while being questioned by Ms Balic.

"We had no reason to not tell anyone."

Throughout the trial, the jury has heard the question of consent would be central to their deliberations, with the defence saying the woman was an active participant.

"She was enjoying herself," Turner Winship said.

The trial continues.
