Saturday wrap: Bears and Pride draw, Seagulls beat Falcons at full-time

Eager to remain in the race for finals, Northern Pride dug deep to draw with Burleigh Bears in Harvey Norman Women in League Round, with Rashuan Denny scoring a double for his side.

The Pride centre, stoked with his double, said it was a "pretty tough game" - as it always was against the Bears - but he was glad his side stood up to the test.

"The Bears and Souths Logan are the benchmark at the moment," Denny, who had the names of eight family members on his strapping tape for Harvey Norman Women in League Round, said.

"We've come off the back of three losses and we really just want to keep building, hopefully get back into the eight for the finals."

Denny said finishing with a draw was bittersweet, but there were plenty of positive to be taken from the game.

"We can take heaps of positives out of it," Denny said.

"We'll just keep building for next week... we're back down here against Tweed, so we'll work on things next week and hopefully get a W. 

"Hopefully we get some points on the board and keep scoring and then get back in the eight before the finals."

Bears winger Tony Francis also scored a double during the clash and was happy  with his side's effort, but said discipline let them down a bit.

"It was really hard, tough game," Francis said.

"The first half was a bit of a grind. Full credit to Pride, they gave us a good run for our money, especially with us being one of the top teams.

"That was a really good game, really good competition."

Francis said the standouts for him were centre Kea Pere and Vaka Sikahele off the bench.

"Massive shout out to Kea, his carries were really good for us," Francis said.

"And Vaka came off the bench for us... his eno from the get go was good for the boys."

Francis said moving forward it was important the Bears showed more discipline.

"Discipline has let us down a lot the past couple of weeks with our errors and penalties but hopefully we get our discipline right for the next three games and go good for the finals."

Elsewhere, Wynnum Manly Seagulls beat Sunshine Coast Falcons with Josh Rogers kicking a penalty goal at full-time to secure the win.

Norths Devils held on against Ipswich Jets, with the Jets firing in the second half to come back from being down 29-12 at half-time.

Townsville Blackhawks winger Jodeci Baker-Tiraha scored a hat-trick in his side's win over Mackay Cutters, in what was Patrick Kaufusi's 100th Cup game.

And Central Queensland Capras proved too good for the Western Clydesdales in Toowoomba.

Brisbane Tigers and PNG Hunters will face off in the Harvey Norman Women in League Round feature game tomorrow to round out Round 19.
