Interesting to note this week that the first half of the NRL round will be played in Queensland, with Souths having taken a home game against the Warriors to the Sunshine Coast while Brisbane, Gold Coast and North Queensland all have home games.
Easts and the Sunshine Coast Falcons will be playing what I assume is a curtain raiser and will be the biggest clash of the Intrust Super Cup this weekend, so should be worth checking out if you’re there anyway.
It’s a rare highlight for Queensland rugby league, which is currently struggling with:
- The Queensland clubs occupying three of the bottom four places on the NRL ladder with no hope on the horizon
- Not being the defending Origin champs for the first time in a while
- Back-to-back smashings at the NRL State Championships
- Tweed Heads will probably win the Queensland Cup
At least we have the NRLW premiers and a Universities team that hasn’t lost in years.
Here are the tips for this weekend’s action:
