BRL preview: Final round to prove next four's order sorter

West Brisbane will travel to Leo Williams Oval for their final fixture at 3.00pm Saturday where the Tigers will be looking to end on a high and thwart the Panthers' second-chance saloon.

It has been a tough year for Carina but a win against the other Big Cats in the competition would be one to savour.

The Panthers were humbled by the Seagulls last week. A win will secure a top three spot and two bites of the cherry, but a loss could see them descend into sudden death territory.

The visitors have named the same 17 from last start looking for combination growth. Jye Ballinger is building with each game and with Jack Canning and Mali Le Pou already battle harden they will need to be at the best against a formidable Tiger muscle.

‘Judge’ Dredin Sorensen, Callum ‘Elenor’ Rigney and James ‘You're’ Keding will be out to leave the Colosseum victorious.

The Hounds and The Pride will square off at Bert St Claire Oval at 4.30pm for their last game of the year.

The Pride's for-and against would need a massive 100-point swing and Brighton to put plenty on Valleys to progress.

Normanby destroyer Justin Fai will be out to lead a strong showing in front of the home faithful, plus with Cam ‘The Man’ Fitzsimmons and with Jai ‘Tip Toes’ Taepa also looking to end with some menace, the Pride will need to be aware.

William ‘Neil’ Armstrong, Tyler Han and Henry Fui will like nothing better than crossing the chalk for probably the last time this year.

The Roosters will play the Diehards at Jim Lawrie Oval from 4.30pm in what could be the first of two meetings between the two clubs in two weeks.

Sitting fourth and fifth now, the right to host a home elimination final will be up for tender unless West Brisbane or Wynnum Manly fail to live up to their favourites tags this weekend, which would catapult the winner of this game into the coveted top three.

The Roosters have won seven in a row thanks in part to their forward pack that have been winning the wrestle, with their quick play-the-balls a feature.

Backs Jordan Millie, Maleek Sandow and Nofoaiga Limoni have reaped the rewards with their ‘uglier’ middlemen getting the job done.

Valleys have been stronger in recent weeks with a lot of that due to their discipline being addressed.

Halves Josh Fauid and Hayden Rowbotham will be a problem for Brighton. Throw in the Esera (Mose and Esera) factor, the Diehards will fancy their chances away from home.

The Seagulls were back to their best last week against the Panthers. That will count for little if they go down to the Magpies for the final game of the BRL home-and-away competition at 5pm at Kitchener Park.

The 'Gulls ‘Jumpin’ Jalen Reweti and Kelepi Faukafa sit near the top of the points and try scoring lists and will look for any opportunity to add to their tallies.

The mercurial Tim ‘The Time Traveller’ Tupou at six has been on song of late.

Souths Juniors' season will end on Saturday, but they would love steal the last hot chip off the Seagulls.
