QFA Preview: Round 8

QFA North


Noosa V Mayne

The Mayne train has had its first stop for the season with the Tigers losing a thriller to Maroochydore.

The loss has Mayne, Noosa and Maroochydore tied for the top spot. With Noosa and Mayne clashing this weekend, the teams at the top of the tree wont stay that way for much longer.

Noosa will be feeling good after their disposal of local rivals Caloundra last weekend and will be hoping they can derail the Mayne caboose.


Maroochydore v Nambour

Nambour & Hinterland could be the catalyst needed to rip open the top of the table.

The lads from the basin and beyond have not won a game so far this season but after a rest last week the boys should be raring to take on Maroochydore.         

The Roos will be licking their lips at the prospect of playing the Blues after upsetting the Mayne wrecking ball last week, but should be cautious as a loss to the team currently holding the wooden spoon would throw the table wide open.

Caloundra v Moreton Bay

Caloundra Panthers will be hoping a win will catapult them into the top four but Moreton Bay will be trying their hardest to bully them back down the table.

Moreton Bay registered their second win of the season over a bedraggled Aspley side and will be looking to the in form Rhys Nickalls to kick a bag and get them the win against Caloundra.

The Panthers had a tough loss to Noosa last week and will be hoping they can spring back and pounce on the rising Moreton side.

Aspley BYE

The Hornets have had a rough start to the season losing all of their matches but hopefully the boys can use the week off to get down to the nest and support some of the other teams at the club.


QFA South


Coomera V Burleigh

In a hard fought contest last week the Coomera Magpies registered the season’s first tie. The boys will be looking to go one further in the local derby with Burleigh this week.

After a weekend of kicking back and having their feet up the Bombers will be hoping they can continue their march up the table with a win over the ‘Pies.

Cooparoo V Springwood

The clash that will decide first place will happen at Giffin Park this weekend.

Springwood and Cooparoo are both undefeated but only one team will be able to boast that tag after this weekend.

Last round, Cooparoo had a good win over Robina beating them by over 100 points with Joseph Taranto kicking 6 goals for the match. Springwood will be feeling good after a hard fought match against the tough Yeronga outfit.

Kenmore V Robina

After the Bears huge day out last week Robina would be heading into this match very cautiously.

The Bears has a big win over Coolangatta last week and the Robina backline would be shaking in their boots about having to come up against Timothy Plummer who kicked a jaw dropping 13 goals last week.

Robina are in for a tough test this weekend but will be hoping the home ground advantage and local support can get them over the line and upset the Bears.

Yeronga V Alexandra Hills

Wooden spoon holder’s Alexandra Hills will be trying to register their first win of the season against the tough Yeronga outfit.

The Bombers showed signs of improvement in a tie with Coomera last weekend but they couldn’t quite get over the line leaving the final score 98-98.

Yeronga battled against a strong Springwood side last weekend and will be hoping a win this weekend will push them into third spot.

Coolangatta Tweed BYE

This break comes at a good time for Coolangatta, the lads had an extremely tough match against a red hot Kenmore last week and will be hoping to forget about that loss as they move on with their season.
