    the Z0 boson could do that, but ... weak force is called 'weak' for a reason.... the Z0 would be way too off-shell.
    It's much more likely that a gluon will do the job... and in most of cases, if you can draw a diagram with a gluon, you'll preferably draw it with that... except for if you are interested to less probable stuff...
