The Colts are Back and are Hoping to Continue Sitting Comfortably On Top

After a lengthy break, the Burleigh Bears Colts are back in action this Sunday morning when they face the Redcliffe Dolphins.

A split Round 19 and a bye in Round 18 means the ladder-leading Burleigh Colts have not taken the field since their 44-16 win over Tweed Seagulls on July 14.

With the regular season quickly reaching its conclusion, the Bears are locked in a three-way race for the minor premiership with Wynnum Manly and Townsville.

An outstanding for-and-against means Burleigh have their noses in front of the Seagulls with the Blackhawks just one-point back in third.

Given the closeness at the top end of the ladder, a Burleigh loss could see them slip from the top spot they have held for the majority of the season and down the ladder as far as third.

Allan Lockwood comes into the side at centre, pushing Braden Amundsen to the wing and Latrell Howe to the extended bench, while Eli Morgan will start in the second row.

They come up against a Dolphins team that has struggled in 2019, winning just one game and sitting at the bottom of the competition ladder.
