Try scoring talent on show for the Burleigh Bears
Given their dominant performance in the FOGS Colts Challenge competition so far this season, it should come as no surprise to see the Burleigh Bears occupying all five spots on the Leading Try Scorers ladder.
Fullback Mitch Doring and winger Tom Sly share top spot with 14 tries apiece, while five-eighth Sam Grant and winger Talor Walters are right behind them, crossing for 14 four-pointers so far this season. Rounding out the top five is their team-mate Jenan Parrish with 10 tries.
Grant also tops the leading points scorers ladder by some margin – having also landed 65 goals for a total of 182 points. Next in line is Redcliffe halfback Tyson Gamble who has crossed for eight tries and 41 goals for a total of 114 points.
A 42-12 win over the eighth-placed Souths Logan Magpies last weekend saw the Bears move six points clear of the second-placed Dolphins on the competition ladder – and they are also the only club to still have a bye up their sleeves.
Club CEO Damian Driscoll said the team were predominately made up of Burleigh and Gold Coast players and was proud of what they had achieved so far – but the memories of their fall to Redcliffe in the grand final last year will keep them focused on the task at hand.
Other results from Round 14 saw the Dolphins hand a 56-0 defeat to the Tweed Heads Seagulls; while the Devils beat the bottom placed Toowoomba Clydesdales 46 to 24. Jack Miers posted a hat-trick while Sam Carson was over for a double.
Sam Burns and Daniel Robinson also posted doubles for their side in a winning score, helping the Sunshine Coast to a 36-12 win over the Easts Tigers.
Round 15 will kick off this Saturday with the Devils hosting Burleigh and the Ipswich Jets taking on the Falcons.
Sunday will see the Easts Tigers at home to the Clydesdales, while it will be a battle between the two Seagulls clubs with Tweed Heads hosting Wynnum Manly to finish the round.
The Redcliffe Dolphins and the Souths Logan Magpies have a bye this week.
