THIS WEEK’S GAMES in 25 WORDS OR LESS

Bears extended their lead of the comp with a bye, and are heavy favourites to maintain the three point gap.

Magpies downed the Blackhawks and looking to nest in the top 6 with a win over Wynnum who also surprised a top 5 contender last week at Redcliffe.

Easts Tigers v Central Capras @ Suzuki Stadium Langlands Park – Kick Off – Sunday 3pm
This one has big Tigers win all over it, but the Capras are a much different prospect in 2016.

Northern Pride v Ipswich Jets @ Barlow Park – Kick Off – Sunday 2pm
Last two premiers meet in Cairns, the Pride just hanging on to sixth.

 

The full preview is with our friends at Nothing But League. Catch up with it all here.

 

PNG HUNTERS CORNER

We catch up with how The Gurgler’s favourite sporting teams on earth are going.

The PNG Hunters are back! After taking the Queensland Cup by storm, they have been a little off the pace in 2016, and worse still it seemed that the Hunters were playing like a normal football side.

Well last weekend they showed there’s still plenty of success them in them as they broke their poor run away from home, and showed some of the style that has seen them obtain cult status in the Queensland Cup.

One try involved a no look backwards flick pass to no one in particular, which of course was snavelled and led to another Hunters try.

Why not catch the highlights here from the QRL.

The Hunters have a bye this week.
