BMD Premiership Round 6 wrap: Cutters, Bears, Magpies, Tigers thrive

Mackay Cutters were unstoppable in their ANZAC Round clash with Norths Devils.

Cutters coach Marco Peters said it was a pleasing performance from the side heading into a top-of-the-table clash against Souths Logan Magpies in Round 7.

"It was good. They were very tough... they have a lot of experience and we had to work hard for the win," Peters said, adding it was a "real tough second half" but his side excelled.

Peters said props Makenzie Weal and Lyrech Mara, in her first run in the starting side, were excellent through the middle. As well as 17-year-old Lily Peacock on debut, who "really ripped in and had a great performance". 

"The main positive was our defence was really good today," Peters said.

"Norths Devils is a talented team with Ali Brigginshaw, Shenae Ciesiolka and Jada Ferguson. We defended really well... to give up just one try, I'm very happy with that performance.

Cutters assistant coach Luke Seymour said the hot conditions in Mackay didn't stop the side from stepping up, including "outstanding" winger Katie Green, who scored a double for the side.

"It was good... the girls definitely dug deep and their defence was the best it has been the whole season," Seymour said.

"Definitely happy with that."

Seymour said the side had circled the Souths Logan clash as one to look forward to early in the year and was looking forward to the challenge next week.

"We know the job we've got to do... I believe in the systems we have in place," Seymour said.

"It will be a battle for us but we'll be ready to go."

Burleigh Bears were strong against Wynnum Manly Seagulls, scoring six tries to Wynnum Manly's four. 

Brisbane Tigers' Keisha-Leigh Coolwell scored a hat-trick in her side's win over Central Queensland Capras. 

Souths Logan showed why they are the ladder leaders, with a commanding 36-6 win over Tweed.
