Despite being without key attacking players Souths-Logan kept the visiting Falcons at bay, leading 14-6 at halftime before going on to win 28-14 in blustery conditions at Brandon Park.
MATCH OF THE ROUND: Easts Tigers 20 (Brett Kuskey 2, Matthew Klein, Todd Hair tries; Todd Hair 2 goals) def Norths Devils 12 (Jarrad Stack, Blayne Harling, Steve Beaumont tries)
East led 20-0 at halftime against a Norths side without 9 regular players. Despite a better second half performance the Devils could not bridge the gap, going down 20-12.
Burleigh Bears 32 (Matthew Parata 2, Ryan Wilson 2, Oscar Diekas, Matthew Host, Jack MacGougan tries; Marty Paulson 2 goals) def Western Districts 6 (Matthew Butler try; Ryan Corrie goal)
A tight first half saw the Bear ahead 8-0 at the break, but on the back of a double by Matthew Parata, returning from injury, Burleigh ran away to win 32-6, the end of the game being marred by an altercation involving several players.
Redcliffe Dolphins 26 (Matt Gillett 4, Phil Daisy tries; Phil Daisy 3 goals) def Ipswich Jets 22 Nigel Naawi 2, Antonio Tuitaupe, Daniel Frank tries; Tim McIlwain 3 goals)
Matt Gillett returned to the form that made him the the top try-scorer in Colts last year with 4 tries in Redcliffe's 26-22 win over the Jets. In a high quality game the scores were locked 10 all at halftime but once again Redcliffe managed to sneak home in a close one whilst Ipswich fell to their fifth defeat by a converted try or less this season.

Aspley slipped out of the top 5 for the first time this year as they lost 26-18 to the Tweed Seagulls. Tweed led 10-6 at halftime and extended this to 20-6 midway through the second stanza before a try with 10 to go to the visitors saw the gap closed to 8 points. A converted try to the home side put the match beyond doubt with 5 to go before a consolation try to Aspley right on fulltime.
MATCH PREVIEWS: June 3/4 2006
The young stars of the competition missing with the U17 Possibles/Probables trial on Sunday!
Souths Logan Magpies v Sunshine Coast Falcons Sat 10:45am Brandon Park
Previous Game: Sunshine Coast 32 def Souths-Logan 26
Souths Logan will be without star backs Chris Sandow (U17 trials) and Mase Laulu-Togagae (Qld Cup) for the first match of the second round. The Falcons scored a surprise win over the Magpies in their first clash this year but the Magpies have definitely improved since then and this will be a much tougher task for the visitors even with Chris and Mase missing "THE COMPUTER" tips Souths-Logan by 12.
MATCH OF THE ROUND: Easts Tigers v Norths Devils Sat 11:45am Langlands Park`
Previous Game: Easts 28 def Norths 14
Easts came from behind to score an upset win over Norths earlier in the year, so the Devils will be keen to gain revenge in this one. Both teams have ket playmakers missing with Norths' Luke Capwell in the U17 trial and Easts' David Georgiou making his Qld Cup debut. The clash in the centres should be a beauty with Pueki Ofahengaue and 12 try scorer Matthew Klein up against rep pair Daniel Issac and Israel Folau. Should be an entertaining match. "THE COMPUTER" tips Norths by 14.
MATCH OF THE ROUND: Burleigh Bears v Western Districts Panthers Sat 3:15pm Pizzey Park`
Previous Game: Burleigh 12 def Western Districts 6
The first match between these two sides this year was a dour encounter with the Bears sneaking away with a 2 tries to 1 victory. Both sides look to be near full strength for this clash with Burleigh welcoming back centre Matt Parata from injury. Both teams are desperate for the win and this should be a hard=fought encounter "THE COMPUTER" tips Burleigh by 8
Redcliffe Dolphins v Ipswich Jets Sun 10.45am Dolphin Oval
Previous Game: Redcliffe 20 def Ipswich 16
Redcliffe will be again missing key players this weekend with 4 players in the U17 trial or promoted to Qld Cup, but they proved last week that they have a heap of depth with a stunning win against Tweed. Ipswich were unlucky to lose in the first round at Ipswich but they have really struggled away from home, and will miss Geoff Holcombe whose form at hooker has seen him gain a Qld Cup start this weekend. "THE COMPUTER" tips Redcliffe by 14
Tweed Heads Seagulls v Aspley Devils 11.45am at Piggabeen
Previous Game: Aspley 42 def Tweed Heads 12
The Aspley team looks a lot stronger on paper than the team that was hammered last week by Souths-Logan but several remain in doubt with injury. Tweed were disappointing last week against an understrength Redcliffe and this is a critical game for them if they are to make the top five. Aspley have slipped to fifth and a loss in this one could see them outside the five for the first time this year. "THE COMPUTER" tips Aspley by 12
