Roosters crowing after trifecta
COMPETITION has only just started, but this season of rugby league is already set to be a thriller.
The Theodore Roosters are the hot favourites after three convincing wins in the opening three games.
They are considered strong in both attack and defence with good-sized forwards.
The Roosters have benefited by picking up four Eidsvold players, particularly the sign-on of Central Burnett player of the year Stanley Bligh.
Bligh, who plays five-eight, was a key player for Eidsvold, directing the team from the back and instigating brilliant attacking plays.
He will be pivotal to the Roosters’ ongoing success.
Former two-time premiership winners Monto Roos have suffered from losing key players.
The Roos lost their games to Theodore and Cherbourg due to being short on numbers.
Despite their early poor performance, the Roos are expected to be strong on their home ground.
The player to watch is five-eight Shane Carter who will be integral to the Roos’ success.
Mundubbera Tigers have already improved on last season’s bottom of the ladder performance.
They have strengthened their team due to the return of players to the town, particularly second rower Daniel Augustine.
Augustine represented Queensland in the under 18s and is expected to be solid in both attack and defence.

Gayndah Gladiators are already on the back foot after suffering significant losses to both Murgon and Theodore.
The Gladiators are looking to pick up more players throughout the season to improve their chances.
The next games will be in Miriam Vale, this Saturday with Central Burnett taking on the South Burnett and Northern Districts teams.
The Central Burnett Fillies will also play an exhibition game against Gladstone.
