The undefeated Burleigh Bears take on second-placed Southport Tigers this Saturday evening at Pizzey Park in Round 12 of the QTOP A Grade Competition.
With nine wins and a draw from ten appearances, the Bears have set the standard in the Gold Coast A Grade competition this season and currently sit five-points clear at the top of the ladder.
Last weekend they kept the roll going with a comprehensive 40-4 win over the Bilambil Jets, with seven different try-scorers getting on the board.
One of those try-scorers was Connor Toia, who leads the competition with six tries for the season so far, while Reece Tapine, a regular in the Colts side, continued his successful jump by slotting six goals.
They were also boosted by the return of Matt Egan from representative duty as well as Api Noema and Josh Berkers who returned from the Cup side. All three crossed for tries in the big win.
This week they take on Southport who have enjoyed a successful season in their own right. They’ve won six games this year, including four of their last five, and currently sit in second place.
These sides last met back in Round 5 with the Bears winning 24-10.
