Round 4 in review: Junior statewide competitions

Round 4 saw the Harvey Norman Under 17 developmental season come to a close while the Harvey Norman Under 19s and Cyril Connell Cup tipped over the halfway point.

With players from the Harvey Norman Under 19s and Cyril Connell Cup now racing towards finals - with momentum also starting to build in the Mal Meninga Cup - here is a wrap of how Round 4 went and where teams stand.

Mal Meninga Cup

After the opening four rounds of the Mal Meninga Cup, the competition is starting to heat up as some frontrunners emerge.

The only team that remains undefeated at this point of the season is the Townsville Blackhawks, who have three wins and one bye to start the year.

The Tweed Seagulls were in a similar position ahead of Round 4 until they failed to get a win over last year's premiers, the Redcliffe Dolphins, who forced a draw at Tugun.

Tweed fell into second place, giving top spot to the Blackhawks.

The Ipswich Jets meanwhile leapfrogged the Sunshine Coast Falcons, following a narrow two-point loss to the Western Clydesdales.

Pool B is proving to be the most competitive of the Mal Meninga Cup so far, with the Jets and Falcons both in the top four, while the Clydesdales are pushing up from seventh.

The competition has another three weeks of teams playing within their respective pools, before they start to crossover leading into this year's finals series.

Harvey Norman Under 19

The Western Clydesdales sit atop the Harvey Norman Under 19 ladder after flexing serious muscle in a top-of-the-table clash in Round 4.

The Clydesdales claimed a 36-12 victory over the Sunshine Coast Falcons to move into top spot in Round 4, with the Falcons falling to fifth.

With the Under 19s playing finals for the first time this year, the Clydesdales will look to continue this momentum over the next three weeks to secure a semi-final slot.

Also undefeated are the Tweed Seagulls, who actually sit on four wins in second place.

The Seagulls have so far taken down Wynnum Manly, Brisbane Tigers, Norths Devils and Redcliffe Dolphins, with the Dolphins proving to be their toughest opponent yet.

The Seagulls managed to eke out a 14-12 victory in Round 4 to move into second place.

Having moved into top spot in Round 2, they held on once again with a strong 32-22 win over the Sunshine Coast Falcons over the weekend, with lock Shaun Elara putting in a particularly big performance.

Harvey Norman Under 17

The developmental season came to an end on Sunday afternoon, with Round 4 showcasing some big scores.

The young girls of Queensland Rugby League's pathways looked to end their respective seasons with a bang, with the Souths Logan Magpies in particular turning up the heat with a 64-0 victory over Wynnum Manly.

The Central Queensland Capras also kept their opponents to nil - beating Mackay Cutters by 36 point - with fullback Zoe Robson particularly impressive, notching up a hat-trick with fearless attack.

The Clydesdales finished the developmental season with three straight wins after a Round 1 bye while the Brisbane Tigers claimed victory in all four of their games, going undefeated and without a bye.

It was a promising start for the future of the Harvey Norman Under 17s and plenty of talent was on show.
