Warriors win again
The Wattles Warriors juggernaut continues on with the side recording their fifth straight victory, a decisive 36-16 win over Valleys, last Sunday at the chook pen.
The rampant Warriors overhauled a game Valleys outfit, but couldn’t reply to a second half 10 minute surge from the dangerous Wattles backline.
Wattles remain the only undefeated team and rightly firm as premiership favourites. In other games Dalby scored in the last minute of play to steal a 30-28 victory over Souths on Sunday.
Highfields continued their good firm and sealed outright second place with an 18 point victory over cellar dweller Brothers. Oakey and Gatton both recorded tight but deserved victories.
This weekend is a great contrast with the bottom four sides clashing on Saturday and the top six sides playing for the spoils on Sunday.
On Saturday Valleys should return to the winners list with a home ground victory over Warwick.
Pittsworth play Brothers at home and should register their second victory at home. The top six may take new shape after the clashes on Sunday with only Wattles assured of maintaining their position on the ladder.
Highfields will be hell-bent on proving their premiership credentials and will look to upset the high flying country boys albeit, I still must lean towards a Wattles victory, in what should inevitably assure the leaders a spot in the mid -season Madsen Rasmussen Trophy Final.
Two of the in-form sides of the competition Gatton and Dalby clash at Cahill Park on Sunday.
The reigning premiers are starting to find their mojo and the likes of representative players Jason Wilmot and Steve Fransiscus should be to the fore in this match.
I believe at home the Hawks will continue their improved form and be too good for the Diehards.
The last match sees the Souths Tigers clash with the impressive Oakey Bears. Both sides need to win too and whichever side shows the most discipline will be victorious.
