A top-of-the-table clash beckons for Burleigh’s Colts when they take on the Northern Pride this Saturday afternoon.
With four consecutive wins, the Bears have shot up into second place on the ladder and will move to top spot if they can knock off the Pride at Barlow Park.
The Bears have built their momentum thanks to some incredible attacking football which has resulted in 192-points in their last four games alone.
After a month of blowouts, the trip north shapes as a very different proposition for the young Bears.
The Pride lead the competition with seven wins to their name and an excellent defensive record to back it up.
With the long trip to Cairns also likely to have an impact, this is as an important test for Burleigh as they look to establish themselves as serious premiership contenders in 2019.
The Burleigh Bears take on the Northern Pride in Round 10 of the Hastings Deering Colts competition this Saturday afternoon from 4.15pm.
