Magpies and Pride get head start on Round 8

Souths Logan Magpies and Northern Pride will take Hastings Deering Colts action to far north Queensland on Saturday afternoon and will be the only Round 8 match played this weekend. 

The two sides will face off at Tully Showgrounds as part of a huge day of rugby league at the venue, celebrating old boys day for the Tully Tigers.

All other Round 8 Hastings Deering Colts games will be played next weekend. 

Both the Magpies and Pride head into this Saturday's match with contrasting form, with the Magpies also having had an break from football after their Round 7 match against Tweed Seagulls last weekend was postponed due to poor weather.

In their Round 6 game on May 14, the Magpies overpowered Redcliffe Dolphins 24-0, with winger Lachlan Mead crossing for a double in the victory. Lincoln McLeod's side will be looking to continue their winning ways on their trip to Tully.

Last weekend in Round 7, the Pride were pipped 50-42 in a high-scoring game against Sunshine Coast Falcons, with five-eighth Dmitri Ahwang and winger Malique Douthat both picking up two tries apiece, while halfback Sterling Addo-Nona kicked seven from seven conversions. 

While they lost the match, the Pride produced an enormous fightback late in the game which would give them hope going into this weekend's match-up against the Magpies. The side trailed 42-12 at the half-time break and were able to score five second half tries to give the Sunshine Coast an almighty scare.

The match in Tully is the only Round 8 match of the weekend, but there will also be two more Hastings Deering Colts games played across the weekend.

Two matches which were postponed earlier this season due to poor weather and unplayable fields have been scheduled in to take place this weekend.

Tweed Seagulls and Norths Devils will play their Round 1 catch-up game this weekend, with the Seagulls hosting the Devils at Tugun.

Townsville Blackhawks and Western Clydesdales will also play a catch-up game, with their Round 6 match originally scheduled for the weekend of May 14-15 going ahead in Townsville on Saturday.  

There will be more catch-up games played later in the season on Saturday, June 25, when the competition breaks for a bye round.

The Devils will take on Brisbane Tigers in their Round 6 match, while the Magpies will be in action again, taking on Tweed Seagulls.
