SEQ local competition update

With the intense senior representative season wrapping up, the South East Queensland Division's focus will return to the major competitions with semi-finals on the horizon.

In Safe Hands Cup - BRL A Grade

The In Safe Hands Cup has been the most effected by the rep season, having played just three rounds in the past six weeks.

They recommence this weekend for Round 12 with the ladder leading Panthers taking on the red-hot Tigers.

The Tigers have rocketed into finals contention thanks to consecutive wins over the Magpies and Diehards by a combined score of 98-16.

The Dolphins, meanwhile, are breathing down the neck of the Panthers, just one competition point behind in second place.

With nine weeks left until finals there is still plenty of time for twists and turns to come in this competition.

SEQW Division 1

The Women's Division 1 competition is approaching the pointy end, with only four rounds remaining ahead of finals.

Three-time defending champions the Burleigh Bears have hit form and taken back top spot on the ladder.

The Bears are unbeaten in their past six games, with five wins and a draw after a somewhat slow start to the season by their high standards.

Easts Tigers have led for much of the season and currently sit just one-point behind the Bears, while early pacesetters Brothers Ipswich have slipped to 4th spot.

Their finals spot is under pressure from Souths Magpies, who with four wins and two draws in their last seven games have suddenly put the top teams on notice.

2018 City of Ipswich Mayor's A Grade Cup

With seven rounds remaining in the 2018 City of Ipswich Mayor's A Grade Cup it is the Swifts Bluebirds and the Fassifern Bombers who share the competition lead.

The Bombers are the hottest team in the competition, having won nine games on the trot. Included in that run was a 42-18 win over the Bluebirds.

Ironically, however, the Bombers started the season with three straight losses, the most recent at the hands of the Bluebirds, 48-12 in Round 3.

They will meet again in two week's time in what could be a clash that decides the minor premiership.

Rugby League Gold Coast QTOP A Grade Competition

The QTOP A Grade competition has powered through representative season, making up for lost time at the start of the year.

Rugby League Gold Coast's major competition was delayed by the Commonwealth Games and didn't commence until April 22, nearly two months after most competitions started in early March.

In the 10 rounds played since then, it has been the Currumbin Eagles who have set the pace with eight wins.

Last year's grand finalists, Runaway Bay and Burleigh, have both suffered injury issues throughout the season and sit down in 5th and 6th place respectively as a result.

Seven rounds remain for last year's frontrunners to get healthy and get back in title contention.

QTOP A Grade  
1. Currumbin Eagles  26 
2. Tweed Heads Seagulls  24 
3. Tugun Seahawks   22 
4. Southport Tigers  22 
5. Runaway Bay Seagulls  21 
6. Burleigh Bears  18 
7. Bilambil Jets  14
