BRL lowdown: Round 2

Redcliffe kicked off their return to the Premier A grade competition with an impressive 32-14 win over Souths Juniors last Saturday at Kayo Stadium.

This week they enjoy a second home game against their rival fellow Dolphins Hostplus Cup affiliate Brighton, Saturday from 4.30pm.

Speedster Michael McGrath crossed twice last week; he will be out for more at Kayo Stadium.

Jordan Davies and Thomas Casey will steer the pod and two on the trot will be the perfect season start. The Roosters lost some feathers last week but have preened themselves to look primed to take the two competition points on offer. Carlos Henry, Hayden Andrews and William Dobson out wide will be screaming for some pill to bring the 'Phins back down to earth.

West Brisbane head to Frank Lind for their home ground visit from the Seagulls. Always a game of high quality, the 4.30 kick-off.

Panthers come up against the second of the two grand finalists from 2023. Too good for Bulimba after digging themselves out of a hole last start, now they have the Seagulls juniors, who were outgunned at home in Round 1.

The mud-and-blood won't want to put themselves, as coach Daniel Green put it after the win last week, too "under the pump" when Wynnum have Connor Brebner, Kalepi Faukafa and Simione Fatafehi unhappy at 0-1.

The Panthers will be on notice. This should be another cracker.

Souths will look to bounce back with their first home game at Brandon Park when they will take on Carina from 3pm.

The Magpies leaked 32 points last week while the Tigers piled on 54.

Kaelin Kerekere, Wilson Malaesilia and Te Macdonald will need to bring the Magpie muscle to contain the Tigers' dynamic pack. Lucas Halls, Jack Canning and the prettier Torpy will certainly be up to the fight to have the Tigers go back-to-back.

The Diehards will also have their first home game at Emerson Park. Kickoff at 3pm with Beenleigh will be explosive.

Both sides had wins in Round 1 away from home, each posting 26 points.

Valleys hooker Zak McGuire crossed last week and would love another.

He has the heat with him in the pack. The likes of Justin Makirere and Titan Sega are just the start.

The Pride also have carnage in their ranks. Andrew Petaia, Jamie Zaghini and the fleet footed Benton Pyako are set to bingle.

The Bulldogs are heading to the Hounds for a 4.30pm mess up at Bert St Claire Oval. 

Both had the rolled-up newspaper taken to them last week in Round 1, so they'll be itching to get out of the doghouse.

Bulimba whippets Taj ‘Who’ Wood, Ronald Philitoga and Zak Taibi will be looking to get some serious saliva on the ball.

Normanby have built somewhat of a kennel at Graceville. Once let off the leash it’s every man for himself.

Cam Fitzsimmons, Blake Hunter and Kotini Styles-Blake are just part of a pack that only putting the garden hose on them will get them to calm down.
