With everything going on the line for the Burleigh Bears and Easts Tigers in their elimination final last Saturday – the players from both teams stepped up to make sure they knew they had given everything they had in order to press for a grand final berth.
The Tigers had too many points for the Bears and ended their season with their 36-26 win; with Easts now looking forward to their showdown with Redcliffe at Suncorp Stadium this Sunday, September 23.
In a beaten team – Pat Politoni put in an Intrust Super Cup Hooker of the Year worthy performance making a game-high 44 tackles, nearly double the next highest – 29 from both fellow Bears Hayden Schwass and Sam Coster.
Easts wrecking ball centre Marion Seve again topped the metre count; making 225 in a huge effort from 15 runs.
The next highest was 192 from Hastings Deering Man of the Match Albert Vete from 16 runs.
