Kenmore will take on Wynnum at Dauth Park to kick off round 5 for State Association division one. The Bears held off a fast finishing Aspley last week to move them to fourth on the ladder. Wynnum are sitting second last following their 10 goal loss to Robina in round four, although Ben Chalmers and Rob Baumgartner were solid contributors in the defeat. All eyes will be on Kenmore’s Tim Plummer who sealed the victory for his team last week with two pack marks and goals in the dying minutes. An important player, Wynnum will need to shut him down if they are any hope of chalking up a win.

Giffin Park will be the stage where Coorparoo and Yeronga will face off on Saturday. The Kings are currently sitting seventh on the ladder and will need a win to put them in the top six. Last week they put up a solid showing against ladder leaders Caloundra, going down by 24 points. Ben Cowan was best on ground for Coorparoo, booting six majors. Yeronga had the luxury of having 148 game AFL legend, and current Brisbane Lions assistant-coach, Jade Rawlings playing for them in their six point win over UQ last week. The ex-Hawk, Bulldog and Kangaroos star booted six goals and proved to be a major factor in the result. If he is unable to front again, Alex Lawnton and Dave Williamson will need to pick up the slack.

The much anticipated northside derby will be taking place at Kedron, where the Lions will take on their rivals from across the road Aspley. The Hornets showed plenty of heart in their loss to Kenmore in round four, but they are still winless for the year and sitting at the bottom of the ladder. Kedron have made a credible start to year after being promoted from division two, and they certainly showed what they are capable of by taking it to Alex Hills last week in a nail biting 2 point loss. Dan Duffield was again best on ground, while Steve Jamieson has been deadly in front of goals, kicking 18 so far this season. Aspley will again need the silky Will McElroy and rock solid Richard Harrison to be on if they are to record their first win for the season.

Alex Hills will face the UQ Red Lions at Keith Surridge Oval this week following another win against Kedron in round four. Although they made the job difficult for themselves, the two point win was enough to for the Bombers to lockdown fifth spot on the ladder. Alex De Hayr has been a key contributor so far this season, while Fin McGrath and Jordan Reilly were standouts in round four. UQ will want to hold down their spot in the top two with a win against the Bombers this week. Hugh Milkman was superb in a losing side against Yeronga, bagging seven goals to take his season tally to 16. Dan Smith, Louis Straker and Milkman are sure to play a large role in the result of this match.

The final game of round five will have Robina playing host to Caloundra on Saturday afternoon. The ladder leaders and the competition newcomers are both coming off wins in round four and will both want to keep the winning feeling as the competition starts to take shape. The ex-Zillmere contingent from the Panthers was too much for Coorparoo last week in their four goal win, with Shaun Clarke and former Queensland under 21 dynamo Jake Weller being named amongst Caloundra’s best. The Roos were also impressive up forward against Wynnum, as Ryan Wetering and Ryan Hudson kicked 10 between them, with best on ground honours going to Hudson. Robina Captain Heath King was also impressive, but it will take a solid team effort to get over the boys from the North Coast
