The Sunshine Coast Falcons were never in the hunt against a Wynnum-Manly side determined to wrap up their position in the finals before their tough last round encounter against Tweed Heads, winiing 76-10 with Luke Menhinnitt racking up 24 points from 2 tries and 8 goals.

Redcliffe Dolphins 38 (Andrew Rickertt 2, Phil Daisy 2, David Hala 2, Matt Gillett, Tim Yee tries; Tim Benson 3 goals) drew Tweed Heads Seagulls 38 (Michael Keating 2, Dane Evans 2, Harry Witt 2, Tom Kingston tries; Michael Keating 5 goals)
An incredible game of football with Redcliffe looking unstoppable as they dashed away to a 28-6 halftime lead and a 38-6 lead after 45 minutes, before an amazing Tweed Heads comeback saw the final result a 38 all draw. This cost Redcliffe any chance of a minor premiership, whilst Tweed keep alive their faint semi final hopes - at least until tomorrow.

MATCH OF THE ROUND: Aspley Devils 24 (Chris Minehan 2, Matthew Baird, Troyden Edwards tries; Vaughan Eriksen 4 goals) def Souths-Logan Magpies 22 (Sam Setu, Mase Laulu Togagae, Jeremiah Walters, Matt Sepelini tries, Mase Laulu-Togagae 3 goals)
Aspley jumped away to an early 12-0 lead but Souths-Logan struck back just before the break to close the gap tp 12-6. An intercept try early in the second half again extended the home side's lead to 12, but a mistake from the restart, and a subsequent penalty gifted the Magpies a try and the again the gap was 6. Midway through the half, Aspley again extended the lead to 12, and looked certain to extend this on a number of occasions, particlularly when Simona Vavega made a 50 metre break only to lose the ball over the line. With 5 minutes to go Sam Setu crossed in the corner, with Mase Laulu's conversion making the score 24-18 to Aspley, and a penalty in the next set put the visitors on the attack again, with Laulu crossing close to the posts with 3 minutes left. His conversion attempt to bring the scores level hit the posts and Aspley held on, despite another break by Setu and Aspley inexpkicably chip-kicking the ball to Chris Sandow after the full-time hooter ad sounded with the score Aspley 24 Souths-Logan 22,.

Previous Game: Redcliffe 48 def Tweed Heads 24
This should be the opener to a great afternoon of football with these two clubs locked in a tense battle for the club championship. From the Colts competition perspective Tweed must win to keep their final hopes alive, whilst it is an important hit-out ofr Redcliffe given they have the bye next week.

Easts Tigers v Ipswich Jets Sat 11.45am  Langlands Park
Previous Game: Easts 38 def Ipswich 32
Easts managed to get out of jail versus the Jets in the first round, courtesy of two late tries, but the Ipswich side has struggled in the last couple of weeks. Easts will be fresh after the bye and looking forward to using this as a springboard to commence their run through the finals.   "THE COMPUTER" tips Easts by 12.

Norths Devils v Western Districts Panthers Sat 1:15pm Bishop Park
Previous Game: Norths 28 def Western Districts 18
Norths struggled to put away the Panthers in the first round, and will be looking to bounce back after a disappointing performance against Aspley last week. Western Districts are really dtruggling with injury and may face the same treatment as Souths-Logan received from Redcliffe atter the Dolphins were hammered by Aspley a few weeks ago. "THE COMPUTER" tips Norths by 30.

MATCH OF THE ROUND:  Aspley Devils v Souths-Logan Magpies Sat 3.30pm  Kirby Park
Previous Game: Souths-Logan 46 def Aspley 10
Both sides will be facing this game with the knowledge that it will decide which of them makes the finals. Aspley have won 3 successive games against teams in the top 5 but are struggling with injury both within the Colts and having to provide players to the Clydesdales, whilst the Magpies will field their strongest side of the year.  The clash between the fullbacks, Galu Teo and Chris Sandow should be a ripper, whilst there will be some tremendous match up in the forwards. New Queensland Reds signing Charlie Fetoia will also have an interesting match up with Mase Laulu. This should be a classic encounter. "THE COMPUTER" tips Souths-Logan by 12.

Wynnum Manly Seagulls v Sunshine Coast Falcons 11.45am at BMD Kougari Oval
Previous Game:Wynnum Manly 32 def Sunshine Coast 22
Wynnum Manly came up with a critical nailbiting victory over Souths-Logan last week to put them in 4th place and they will not want to throw this away with a loss to the competition tailenders.
