The Gurgler can smell the Queensland Cup Grand Final series as we enter the last five rounds, and maybe we got a small taste of what could be the decider in September on the weekend.
Once again the PNG Hunters and Townsville Blackhawks played out a thriller, and once again the Hunters got the 2 points. If these teams do meet in the Grand Final then it will be entertaining at minimum for all. The Gurgler is quickly searching the internet for some Hunters merchandise for that final Sunday in September. It’s even my birthday. What a present it would be.
But there’s plenty of other teams who will have their eye on the Grand Final and all with genuine claims of being there. Easts and Ipswich consolidated their top 6 position, whilst the Wynnum Seagulls collected a rare second loss in a row.
Other teams are clinging onto hope of making the finals, and some will probably be happy the season is ending.
