Burleigh Bears' Intrust Super Cup squad is in good shape for the 2019 season, having only lost star prop Matt White to retirement.
After guiding the Bears to last year’s preliminary final, coach Jim Lenihan will be aiming to take the club into the showpiece game of the season this year.

With the guidance of inspirational leaders Jamal Fogarty, Luke Page, Pat Politoni and Blake Leary, the Bears will again be a competitive side in 2019.
