BRL lowdown Round 7: Seagulls on a roll, but Panthers on top

West Brisbane is sitting atop of the Premier A grade competition on their own after six rounds.

Carina and Redcliffe, with one loss each sit just above the defending premiers Wynnum Manly Juniors, who are in fourth, while 2023 minor premiers Bulimba round out the top five.

Souths and Brighton take on each other restart the series from 3pm at Brandon Park.

Both sides would rather be sitting higher on the ladder and will need to start putting the wins together.

The 60-minute Magpies need to convert that to 80 minutes.

The Roosters have finally posted a win and would rather not have had the break to carry that winning feeling into the following round.

The quality of both packs deserves better results. Souths Juniors will have returned to the drawing board to search for a way out of the nest. The birds of prey will not die wondering in this.

They respect each other, they hate losing to each other and they will do anything to take the chant to the sheds and enjoy the silence from the opposition shed.

Also at 3pm, we are talking traditional foes Wests v Valleys at Emerson Park. Toe to toe. Red Corner v Blue Corner.

The Panthers have mauled most in their undefeated run thus far, posting more than 50 points in most games.

The Diehards, after a solid start, have lost two on the trot and sit just outside the top five.

They are at home and with a packed hill this, will be an enthralling affair as always.

Former Panthers Eddie Tautali and Joe Waqalevu will line up in blue while magic man Simon Brittain Snowden will also run out in the navy blue. 

Panthers have newbies Campbell Duffy and Wyatt Reynolds running out in what will be a contest that will not disappoint.

Carina tasted defeat last start and will line up at Leo Williams Oval against the defending premiers Wynnum Manly Juniors from 3.30pm.

The Seagulls are on a roll, winning their last three to move to fourth after losing their first three.

Carina have named Noah Natapu at No.9 with Madison Beckett and Caleb Pese coming into the squad for the first time.

The Seagulls also have fresh faces in the nest with JJ Clarkson, Max Pakai and Zaen Edmonds to what they will hope to be win number four.

The Tigers will be keen to erase two weeks of misery, while the Seagulls will be out to feather their nest with two more points.

The Hounds and the Pride will have welcomed the break to reassess their season.

Both are smarting after their last start defeats. Both leaked 50-plus and they will be far from happy about their defensive efforts. From 4.30pm at Bert St Clair Oval, both sides' seasons start now.

Hounds' big people Justin Fai and Michael McKinnon will line up against the big bodies of Andrew Petaia and Jamie Zaghini. 

In what could be a higher-scoring encounter, the side with the most errors will not be a happy camper after the final whistle.

Both Redcliffe and Bulimba returned to the winner’s circle after losses in Round 5.

Bulimba returned to form for the first 60 minutes, before stumbling across the line over Valleys. Redcliffe were ruthless against the undefeated Tigers and will not want a loss at home, Kayo Stadium from 4.30pm.

Redcliffe will again roll out a pod of familiar ‘Phins with the Hoad brothers Sully and Ayden, and 'everywhere man' Thomas Casy doing his thang.

For Bulimba their inspirational leader Izaac Skyring returns to add some go-forward on the right edge.

Chuck in the speed of Mitchell Butler and Rahkeem Auda and last year's grand finalists could go back-to-back.
