BRL In Safe Hands Cup returns for Round 10

The In Safe Hands Cup resumes this week with three Round 10 fixtures.

The Panthers still lead the competition on 23 points, followed by the Diehards and Seagulls who sit just two points behind.

The Tigers and Magpies are locked together in fourth, while the Dolphins currently sit in sixth.

Seagulls v Tigers – Saturday, June at BMD Kougari Oval - 3.15pm

The Seagulls will look to put a consistent 80 minutes together at Kougari Oval on Saturday after one win from their past three starts.

In their last appearance against the Dolphins they trailed 20-8 before a big second half comeback.

The round before, the Panthers came from behind to run them down which followed a Round 7 defeat at the hands of the Diehards.

They come up against a brutal Tigers who were savage in the first half against the Panthers two weeks ago.

The Seagulls have the competition’s form front rower in Sam Elliott to take on the ferocious pack of Easts, which has the inclusion of Justin Fai to join Lachlan Lansky and Jaiyden Hunt.

Elliott has some serious muscle alongside him in the starting six and with the injection of the post contact metre king Jacob Paulo on the bench, this could turn ugly.

The Tigers realise while they were at their best in the first 40 last start, it’s what’s on the scoreboard at the final whistle that counts.

Magpies v Panthers – Sunday, June 9 at Davies Park - 11.30am

Souths Logan will also be looking for a consistent performance, after going down 28-24 at the hands of the Diehards in their previous fixture.

Magpies halves Lachlan Cooper and Haydn O’Hara have been firing since they were paired up, and with a rampaging forward pack have been devastating in the past month.

Coach Darren Ferricks put the resurgence down to their Round 5 clash with the Panthers, their opponents this Sunday at Davies Park.

“While we lost that game, we showed signs of what we are capable of against the form side of the competition,” Ferricks lamented.

With the inclusion of Phil Dennis, they have swooped nicely, taking the biscuits from the Tigers and the Dolphins in Rounds 7 and 8 and almost getting the points against the Diehards.

The Panthers await and they are looking the goods. West Brisbane have an abundance of dummy half maestros named in their 17.

Tommy Butterfield returns to a pack that also has the talented Shane Pumipi plus Wayne Kennedy as playmakers.

Panthers Chris Gesch and Johnnie Fox will look to get the go forward with speed to burn out wide as the Panthers look to maintain top spot and secure their seventh straight win.

Diehards v Dolphins – Sunday, June 9 at Bishop Park - 1.15pm

The Diehards and Dolphins face off in the final fixture on Sunday afternoon and both coaches will be hoping to erase the memory of poor 40-minute performances from their last round.

The Dolphins got off to a flyer against the Seagulls before being blown away in the second half, whereas the Diehards had to come from behind against the Magpies at Logan after a poor start.

With their Intrust Super Cup team searching for form, Dolphins coach Daniel Green has been forced to reinvent the wheel each week without a settled 17.

Corbin Danials moves to fullback to support a star-studded backline including Glen Ellis.

The Diehards have a point scoring backline of their own with the likes of David Fauid, Sam Collins and Fruen Easthope.

Joe McGuire coming off the bench speaks volumes of the blue pack which should create space for dynamic playmaker Jack Miers.
