Coolangatta-Tweed vs. Yeronga South Brisbane
2:00pm – Peak Oval
All QFA South games last weekend were cancelled due to extreme weather conditions. This allowed for all teams to take the week to rest their legs.

Coming away from a loss to Robina, Coolangatta will need to come out fiercely against Yeronga to register a win. Coolangatta have the home club advantage this weekend and need to use this to bolster team morale to put pressure on Yeronga.

Coorparoo vs. Burleigh
2:00pm – Giffin Park
Sitting pretty at the top of the ladder coming in to week 5, Coorparoo need a win over Burleigh to make sure they stay there. The team has now had two weeks off following a bye in round 3 and game cancellations in week 4. It will be interesting to see how they come out against the Bombers having rested for two consecutive weeks. Burleigh on the other hand had a narrow 19-point loss to Springwood in round 3 so will have added incentive to walk off the field this weekend with a win on the scoreboard.
