Capras stay on top, Bears roar and Gold Stars shine

The Central Queensland Capras remain unbeaten in the BMD Premiership - but had to fight back from a halftime deficit against Tweed Seagulls to keep their run alive.

Tweed started well in their Round 6 match at Browne Park to lead 10-4 at halftime, but were overrun in the second half, with the Capras scoring three second half tries to maintain their winning run and their place at the top of the ladder.

The North Queensland Gold Stars also had a good win, accounting for West Brisbane Panthers in their Saturday afternoon match at Frank Lind Oval. 

The visitors scored five-tries-to-two in their victory which was their fourth of the season.

Saturday's round kicked off with a close-fought match between Wynnum Manly Seagulls and Brisbane Tigers.

Speaking before the match, Seagulls hooker Patrice Chambers said with the competition being so tight with now only one more round remaining before the finals, every match counted.

“Being such a tight comp, these last two rounds are very important for us to make the top four," Chambers said.

The Seagulls were able to get the job done despite conceding an early lead to keep their dream of a finals berth alive.

In Sunday's only match, the Burleigh Bears flexed their might in the second half to shake off Souths Logan Magpies.

Things were tight in the first half with the defending premiers only holding a 16-12 lead at the break - but they clicked into gear in the second to post a big victory that puts them in second place on the ladder.

Centre Felice Quinlan scored four tries in the win. 

The final regular round of the season kicks off with Round 7 matches on Saturday, May 21.
