Coorparoo Vs Caloundra

Caloundra will make another trip down the highway to Giffin Park for a replay of last year’s Grand Final. The Panthers took the points in their last outing, as they did in the Grand Final, and will expect to do so again this week. The Kings will be without key forward Shane Morrison and last week showed just how important he is to their forward line setup. Their 20 point loss to the lowly Robina Roos was not a result predicted by many. Sandy Hampson put the Kings on his back and kicked four much needed goals. Jake Waters and Liam Best were also good contributors in the shock loss. Caloundra made light work of Alexandra Hills in round 12, beating them by over 13 goals. Ex-Zillmere Eagles utility Jake Weller was best on ground, while fill-in skipper Mitch Hyde and Jason Marks both bagged five goals.

Yeronga Vs UQ Red Lions

Ladder leaders UQ will be up against Yeronga at Leyshon Park this week in what should be a fiercely contested local derby. The Devils were able to get over UQ by a goal in round four, but the Red Lions have been the form team in recent weeks and will be tough to beat. Hugh Millikan has been leading the charge up forward and has had some good help from Luke Wray and Brad Percy. In their six goal win against Kenmore last week, Percy was in fine touch, winning best on ground honours and utilising his deadly left foot kick on numerous occasions. Yeronga were able to hold off a fast finishing Aspley outfit at home in round 12, largely due to their eight goal second quarter. Steve Quirk was active throughout the contest and finished with five goals. Matt Lockyer continued his brilliant season with another standout performance and also had three majors of his own.

Kenmore Vs Aspley

The Aspley Hornets will head to the Western Districts Oval to face Kenmore on Saturday. Tim Plummer kicked the sealer the last time these two sides met, and this week he will face the form defender of the competition in Lachlan Harris. The much anticipated tussle will be a pivotal factor in the outcome of this match and Harris will need to be at his best to stick with the ex-Mt Gravatt star. Plummer turned in another fantastic performance last week against the Red Lions but it wasn’t enough. The six goal defeat was a solid effort, however, as they stuck with UQ for the majority of the game. Brendan Stirling was also impressive, bagging five goals in the loss. The Hornets again showed plenty of ticker, coming back from a 10 goal deficit at three quarter time to push Yeronga all the way to the final siren. Pat Thomas and Chris Burdon were handy in front of goal, both finishing with five goals. A four quarter performance is desperately needed by the Hornets, as there lapses have proven to be costly.

Kenmore 15.13.103 def. Aspley 13.16.94

Wynnum Vs Robina

Wynnum are hosting Robina at Kianawah Road on Saturday and will be hoping to ride their great performance from round 12. The Vikings were able to pull off an upset of sorts, beating the more fancied Kedron Lions by 37 points. Ash Rodrigues and Rob Baumgartner were lively up forward and had three for the day, while Ben Chalmers and Trent Farrow were very useful. The other upset of round 12 was provided by Robina, with a cracking 20 point win over the white hot Coorparoo Kings. Skipper Heath King was superb in the win and was named best on field. James Chapman wasn’t far behind, however, as he kicked five goals in another standout game.

Last time they met:
Robina 20.20.140 def Wynnum 12.10.82

Kedron Vs Alexandra Hills

Kedron will look to capitalise on Alexandra Hills’ recent poor form with a win at home this Saturday. The Bombers have continued to slide since their loss to the Hornets three weeks ago, and this continued in round 12 against Caloundra. The big 81 point defeat showed no signs of the team that was sitting on top of the table only a few weeks earlier. Fin McGrath was one of the only shining lights in the loss, and it was no surprise to see Alex De Hayr amongst the best again. Kedron were also defeated last week, but this one was definitely there’s for the taking. Wynnum haven’t had the best season but did more than enough to comprehensively beat the lions by 37 points. Northern Raiders product Alex Craft has been a welcome addition and was best for the Lions in the loss last week. Kedron will be without former Queensland schoolboy representative Steve Rees this week and he will no doubt be a big loss. Steve Jamieson will have to step up in his absence and provide a solid target up forward. The last time these sides went head to head it was a close one and this week has the makings of a similar result.
Last time they met:
Alexandra Hills 8.17.65 def. Kedron 10.3.63
