BRL qualification / elimination finals teams
The BRL grand final is just a few weeks away and there are only four remaining teams remaining in the hunt for the title with the Ipswich Jets, West Brisbane Panthers, WMRC Seagulls and the Redcliffe Dolphins battling it out.
The Seagulls and the Dolphins will be playing to qualify for the final as the Jets and Panthers fight to keep their finals hope alive.
After a great win over Easts Tigers last week, Jets fans will again get to see their team play at home when they host the Panthers this Saturday at 1pm.
There is a lot to play for in this game as the winner will go through to play for a place in the 2016 grand final and the team that goes down will see their season come to an end.
After a tough loss in the first week of the finals last year, the Panthers will be aiming to redeem themselves and push hard to go all the way.
Having established a tight family culture at the club and the closeness of the players seeing all members of the team play hard for each other, they will be difficult to beat.
However, the Jets out aiming to defend their title and will not go down without a fight.
The team will be giving their all this weekend and with both sides out to play their best football, it really will be anyone’s game, ensuring an entertaining contest.
While the battle in the West will an exciting one, the top-of-the-table clash in the east will be just as good with WMRC Seagulls coming up against a quality Redcliffe side.
The game will kick off at BMD Kougari Oval at 6pm with one of these teams qualifying for the grand final and the other having to battle it out next week against the Panthers or the Jets.
With the minor premiership having been decided by only one point, it has been tough to separate these two teams and this weekend will be no different.
With so much excitement that the finals bring, these two games this Saturday are sure to deliver.
