Seagulls end Burleigh's 12-month win streak

The Burleigh Bears have lost for the first time in 12 months, with newcomers Tweed scoring an upset 22-18 win in Round 4 of the SEQW Division 1 competition.

Playing in just their fourth game in the top grade, the Tweed Seagulls outpointed the four-time defending premiers five tries to four to claim their second win of the season.

Burleigh’s loss on Sunday ended a streak that lasted exactly 12 months - back to April 28, 2018 - when they went down to Easts Tigers 20-14.

Since then, the Bears won 13 games in-a-row, including last year’s grand final, their fourth in succession.

Tweed’s win was not only a big result for the competition’s newest team, but a statement on how tight the 2019 premiership race is shaping up to be.

New competition leaders, Wests Brisbane, remained unbeaten in Round 4, but only through a 22-22 draw with Souths Logan Magpies.

The Magpies have yet to claim a victory this season, coming agonisingly close with two tight losses and now a draw in their three appearances.

Toowoomba, meanwhile, remain the other winless team in the competition after going down to Brothers Ipswich.

The SEQW Division 1 competition will break as the region's Women's Emerging Camp takes place at Runaway Bay across this coming weekend.

Action will resume on Saturday May 11, with Round 5 fixtures to feature Easts vs Souths Logan, Wests Brisbane vs Burleigh and Tweed Heads vs Brothers Ipswich.
