BRL preview: 2022 grand finalists face off for 2023 berth

The minor premiers Bulimba Bulldogs have progressed to their first BRL A Grade grand final, but the big question remains about who will join them.

Wynnum Manly Juniors went down 32-20 in the major semi-final, and will certainly be hoping to be the ones opposing them again next week.

In the way, their nemesis West Brisbane Panthers.

The Panthers and Seagulls last met in finals football in the 2022 decider.

Wynnum Manly Juniors will look to avenge last year’s loss and proceed to their second straight grand final, while the reigning premiers West Brisbane have a third big dance in a row on offer.

Last start the Seagulls were too good for the Panthers in a 31-12 win at Frank Lind Oval in Round 17.

In Round 8, the Panthers were victorious 30-18 at Kitchener Park.

One of these two sides’ seasons will end after they come together for the preliminary final at 4.30pm at John Fredricks Oval, Capalaba.

Both coaches have a relatively unchanged line up from last week’s outings.

‘The Iceman’ Tobias Westcott, ‘The Mailman’ Kyle van Klaveren and ‘The Ferrari’ Eddie Taultali were outstanding in a BRL classic against Brighton last week.

The Seagulls have Luke ’Duke’ Maddaford, Lachlan ‘Bruce’ Lee and Kobe ‘Austin’ Martin dead keen on bringing the menace once again to the park that they have delivered week in week out.

Who will the Bulldogs face off at Totally Workwear Stadium at 4pm on Saturday, September 9?

Some- time around 6.30pm this Saturday we will have an answer.
