Souths Juniors are alone in fourth place after holding off the Pride last weekend but only for-and-against separate the top three after Round 6 of the Brisbane Rugby League Premier A Grade competition.

Valleys remain on top after a bruising encounter against Bulimba at Emerson Park with a comfortable win in the end 30-12.

The Diehards will travel to Hammel Park against Beenleigh at 3pm.

Valleys have only the one loss against the defending premiers West Brisbane in Round 3 and will be chasing a fourth straight win here. Diehards’ halves Josh Fauid and, when he came on, Kyle Coghill, were instrumental last week and will need a similar effort against the Pride.

Prop Jordan Brown was ruthless last start and looking for more than one hit-up per set and the big unit will need to bring his post contact metres to Hammel Park.

The Pride have the calibre to ruin the Diehards run with Brody Tamarua and Sam Mataora more than capable of destructive go forward with half LJ Waddups barking at their heels.

Can the Burglars from Beenleigh steal another win, or will the Diehards remain at the top of the ladder?

Bulimba have had a frustrating season thus far. Four of their six games have produced patches of brilliance and after last weekend’s loss to Valleys, they find themselves outside the top five for the first time.

They will host Brighton at Balmoral at 3.15pm. The Roosters put their second win on the board when they defeated Carina 30-16 and fancy going back-to-back against a struggling kennel.

For Bulimba, Jack Stafford was a standout considering the quantity of football the right winger has played of late. He has an ally in Zac Taibi and front row beasts Anthony Chang and Jakahoko Teutau to turn the tide for Bulimba at home.

In their way are Dilbert Issac, Matthew ‘Bear’ Gill and Alexander Crust, all who want some more of that winning love after a taste of victory.

Normanby have leaked 40 points in their last two losses and will look to turn things around against Carina at Bert St Clair Oval from 4.30pm. 

The Hounds led the Panthers two weeks ago but since then have lacked the razzle-dazzle they put on display earlier in the season.

The Tigers are a win away from breathing confidence back into their campaign, but it will need to start this weekend.

They played a strong 80 minutes against Valleys in Round 5 before the Roosters took the wind out of their sails last week.

Souths Juniors have made their way into the top five and will relish a return to the nest at Brandon Park to test themselves against West Brisbane.

The Magpies have changed their game plans of late focusing on their forwards to do the ugly work while the outside Magpies add the pretty.

The Panthers were stunned last week against the winless Bears trailing 12-0 early in the game before flexing their muscle in the second half winning 54-16 at Frank Lind Oval.

Panthers half Tobias Westcott, centre Eddie ‘The Ferrari’ Tautali and Charlie Galo return to add further grief to the Maggies. In saying that, Souths Juniors are primed and ready to rumble from 4.30pm. This will be a hoot.

Pine Rivers looked sharp, composed and confident last week against the Panthers and were the better side at halftime before fading away in the second 40.

Half Lemefoe Vaa, hooker Jerry Teme and lock forward Michael Winchester were standouts and must put in the full 80 against the Wynnum Manly Juniors at Mathieson Park, Saturday afternoon from 4.30pm.

The Seagulls have only the one loss and returned to their best with a resounding 40-16 rolling of Normanby in Round 6.

Last year's grand finalists have talent across the park from left wing Ryan O’Keefe to right wing Hayden Andrews and up the middle with Kelepi Faukafa.

The Bears will not surprise if they come away with a win as they are slowly building into a confident unit.
