BRL Round 10 preview: Wynnum starting to soar

Wynnum Manly Juniors have finally produced the form that everyone knew they had.

Previously struggling to put together a full 80-minute performance, they took down Bulimba 32-18 last week in a shock victory.

However, this weekend it will mean little if they give up three competition points against in-house rival Beenleigh.

The BRLTV game live from Kitchener Park at 4.45pm Saturday is shaping as a possible turning point for Wynnum Manly Seagulls-affiliated clubs.

The Pride are looking to avoid a third straight loss.

While a loss will keep Beenleigh in the all-important top three, if the Bears and Roosters come away with wins, they will be breathing down their neck.

For the Juniors a win could push them just inside the top five.

In Round 1 Beenleigh came from 18-0 down at halftime to win 20-18 on the bell at Hammel Park.

Elsewhere, the last time the Diehards and Panthers clashed in Round 1 it was an ugly win to the still-undefeated West Brisbane side, 14-8 at Frank Lind.

This time Valleys will host their nearest rivals at 3pm at Emerson Park on Saturday as last year’s grand finalists come to blows in Round 10.

Valleys held on to defeat Beenleigh last week (28-26) but the Panthers had to fight hard against the Magpies.

Valleys sit outside the top five while West Brisbane are looking to go nine from nine.

DiehardsTV will broadcast this game on their Facebook Page.

Bulimba, meanwhile, have lost two of their last three games but remain in second place on the ladder, but only just.

The Seagulls kept the Bulldogs on their leash last week but they will look to break out against the Carina Tigers from 3.15pm tomorrow.

Carina came up against a red-hot Pine Rivers last week to ruin a three straight winning streak.

The two Brisbane Tiger affiliate sides will look to post wins and players will look to impress Hostplus Cup selectors.

Bulimba outmuscled Carina in Round 1 40-12 at Leo Williams Oval.

Pine Rivers are in scintillating form now as they host Brighton at Mathieson Park at 4.45pm in the local derby.

The Bears will look for revenge after the Roosters toweled the Bears up in Round 1, 30-8.

The Roosters put 56 on the board last week with Bears also hitting 50.

Plenty of points are on offer so defence will be key for both clubs, who are both currently in the top five.

The Redcliffe Dolphins feeder clubs have the potential to score at a point a minute so the scoreboard attendant will be kept on their toes.

Normanby and Souths Juniors will round out Round 10 when the Hounds host the Magpies at Bert St Claire Oval at 6.30pm.

Both sides have only posted the one win, with Souths' win being against Normanby in Round 1.

If either side are to make a run for the top five this weekend, this will need to be the start of that tilt.

The wooden spoon is something to be avoided and this will be motivation enough for the two Souths Logan affiliates.
