Burleigh’s Colts team will look to keep their impressive streak of attacking rugby league alive when they take on the Dolphins on Saturday afternoon.
The Bears have piled on 142 points in their last three games to emerge as one of the competition’s form teams.
Thanks to five wins, a draw and a loss they are sitting pretty in third spot with the best overall attacking record in the entire competition.
Coach Jamie Mahon said his players have found their self-belief in attack recently and have started to click as a group.
On Saturday, they face a Redcliffe side who are winless through the first eight rounds.
Mahon said his players can’t afford to look at ladder positions and expect an easy afternoon because Redcliffe will be ready to cause an upset at home.
“Redcliffe are a proud club, and while they’re not performing at the moment, I’m sure they’re not far away from getting back to their best and we’ve got to be on our game to perform well against them,” he said.
“When you’re up the top of the competition, those are always good scalps to try and get, especially for some of the teams lower on the ladder.”
Kick-off between the Burleigh Bears and the Redcliffe Dolphins in Round 9 of the Hastings Deering Colts competition is 2.45pm this Saturday afternoon at Dolphin Stadium. ISC kicks off at 6pm. er on t
