BRL: Diehards, Seagulls out to extend unbeaten run in Round 3

Valleys and Wynnum Manly Juniors remain undefeated heading to Round 3 before a bye for Easter will give everyone time to re-evaluate the first three weeks of the Brisbane Premier A Grade competition.

Round 3 kicks off at Leo Williams Oval on Saturday from 3pm where Carina will host Bulimba.

It will be a big day at Carina with both the Hostplus Cup and BMD Premiership fixtures playing either side of this exchange.

The Tigers will look to go back-to-back after accounting for the Magpies while the Bulldogs, who could not contain the rampaging Seagulls in Round 2, will look to return to the winners' circle.

Valleys took the sword to the Bears in Round 2 and in doing so also kept their line intact. They will be at home at Emerson Park once again where they will host traditional foes West Brisbane from 4.30pm.

The Panthers bounced back eventually against Beenleigh as the reigning premiers collected their first three competition points to kick start their premiership defence.

The Magpies come up against Normanby with both Souths Logan Magpies-affiliated clubs looking for a second victory.

Souths Juniors were put away by the Tigers a week ago while the Hounds held off a gritty Brighton outfit to secure their first taste of a win.

The 4.30pm showdown at Brandon Park could see the Magpies hold on to a spot in the top four or Normanby win will see them jump above the Magpies from eighth place.

The match of the round will take place at Kitchener Park from 4.30pm, where last year’s grand finalist Wynnum Manly Juniors will host Beenleigh.

In their first encounter last year the Pride pipped the Seagulls two minutes from time.

The Juniors have been impressive in their campaign thus far but the Pride have yet to hit their straps. Both squads have massive packs and there will be plenty of bone-rattlers echoing around the streets surrounding Kitchener Park.

Brighton and Pine Rivers are yet to salute the judge but that is likely to change as both clubs come together in what is effectively a rivalry round this Saturday.

They too share a Hostplus Cup side affiliate and will face off this weekend with the eye of Cup coaches firmly on their talent.

Brighton is at home at Castle de Rooster for the first time this year. They have put two impressive road trip outings losing by no more than eight points in both losses.

Pine Rivers, however, have struggled with a massive defeat to the Diehards and a opening clash against the Pride where they were comfortably put away.

The Bears will also have to deal with the Jim Lawrie Oval fortress and the massive flock of tricolour fans at the southern end. 

Kick off from 6.30pm to end rivalry round promises not to disappoint.
