QFA North and QFA South Previews: Round 12


QFA North


Aspley v Caloundra – Graham Road

Following one of the biggest upsets of the season, Caloundra will be looking to continue their good form as they look to close the gap on the top Three. Playing away from home against an Aspley team that fought out a gritty six-point victory against the Blues will prove to be very challenging. The Hornets suffered a 27-point loss to the Panthers in their last match and will be eager to atone for that defeat.


Maroochydore v Moreton Bay – Maroochydore Multisport Complex


Look out Lions. That will be the message the ‘Roos will be sending after going down by 5-points to the Pumas last week. After being outplayed, Maroochydore will be keen to bounce back and hit some form as we enter the second half of the season. Coach Dickfos will be instructing his charges at Moreton Bay to sniff the blood in the water as they try to capitalise on Maroochydore’s defeat, and bounce back from their own loss to the rampant Mayne Tigers.


Noosa v Nambour & Hinterland – Weyba Road


Noosa will be fresh and fit coming off a much needed rest and will aim to hit the ground running playing at home against Nambour and Hinterland. The Blues were gallant, but in the end failed to ambush the Aspley outfit on their home deck. It will take a big effort to win away from home against the Noosa Tigers who sit comfortably in third position on the ladder.

Coolangatta – Tweed v Robina – Appel Street


Two teams, two big losses. With both teams at the bottom of the table, this fixture will be an important clash for both teams vying for pride. The Blues will hope to be more accurate in front of goal, after converting poorly with 12 behinds. Robina will hope they are still able to find a way to goal through Peter Laval, who has scored 22 goals so far this season. An intriguing clash with no real favourite for victory, expect this to go right down to the wire.

Kenmore v Alexandra Hills – Oxley Road


An errant Bombers outfit were unable to kick straight last week, spraying 21 shots at goal and converting 15. However, the team will be up and about as they gear up for a tough clash against the Kenmore Bears. The Bears will look to Timothy Plummer to once again lead the charge in front of goal; he has raced out to 32 goals from just five games. With Kenmore sitting nicely in second position, it will be the Alex Hills team looking to upset the home team with a spirited performance.

Springwood v Burleigh – Lowe Oval


On the back of two big wins, both teams will come into this match with a lot of confidence. Burleigh made the most of their chances against a plucky Robina team, running out 100-point winners, a margin that will leave the Puma defence with a few sleepless nights. Both teams are level on 24 competition points, highlighting the importance of this clash, with the winner consolidating third spot. This has the potential to be game of the round, expect a hotly contested football match.

Yeronga South Brisbane v Coomera – Leyshon Park


The Devils took the week off and will come back refreshed and ready to face a Coomera team licking their wounds after a 64-point loss to Springwood. Both teams have plenty to play for as they jostle for mid-table supremacy and push for a finals berth. The last time these two teams met, it was Yeronga that ran away 36-point victors, and the Devils will be looking to do the same, despite what should be a stern test from a team looking to repair the damage from last week’s loss.
