Bur­dekin brac­ing for Brothers

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

BUR­DEKIN will be hop­ing to cap this week­end’s 40th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions in style when they host Brothers in a top- four TDRU clash at Casalegno Field this af­ter­noon.

Queens­land Reds head coach Nick Stiles was the spe­cial guest last night as the Cane­toads cel­e­brated their four­decade mile­stone, but they’ll be all busi­ness on the field as they look to seal a fi­nals berth.

Bur­dekin is com­ing off a hard- fought 19- point win over Char­ters Tow­ers last week­end and they look well- placed in third on the lad­der, but a win over Brothers would make a huge state­ment. Brothers are just one win be­hind de­fend­ing pre­miers Teach­ers West in the mi­nor premier­ship race and they blew North Ward off the park last week­end in a dom­i­nant 66- point vic­tory.

In to­day’s other games, North Ward will be look­ing to stay in touch with the top four by spring­ing an up­set over the pow­er­house Teach­ers West at War­rina Park.

Ross River will host Char­ters Tow­ers at Bin­dal Sports Ground.

Both sides will be out to snare a con­fi­dence- boost­ing win be­fore the end of the sea­son.
