    I wonder how Brenko will go if we need him on the right side?

    Bears win has a price

    IT could be a painfully long trip home for classy Burleigh fullback Kurtis Rowe after his side’s victory in Gladstone yesterday.

    The former Wests Tigers player suffered a suspected fractured eye socket late in the encounter at Marley Brown Oval which, if confirmed, will prevent him from flying home with the squad and instead force his mode of transport for the 600km trek to a hire car.

    Despite the injury blow, the Bears knuckled down for a 28-20 win over a determined Central Queensland Capras outfit featuring ex-Maroons forward Dave Taylor and 2016 Bears premiership winner Connor Broadhurst.

    Burleigh now hold a 5-0 record – the exact opposite of where they stood this time last year.

    They did it the hard way though, falling behind after conceding 20 unanswered points either side of the halftime break.

    “I’ve always said an ugly win is far better than a good looking loss,” said coach Jimmy Lenihan. “We probably scored real easy and found the lead a little bit too easy.

    “Going into the back of the first half, we started seeing signs that we were losing touch with it a little bit and the start of the second half we didn’t really have much ball at all.”

    But inspired by props Luke Page and Jack Stockwell, the Bears dug in and reclaimed the lead through tries to Pat Politoni and Tyronne Roberts-Davis.

    Halfback Josh Rogers, called up to replace injured lead playmaker Jamal Fogarty, sealed the result with a late try.

    “We certainly didn’t win pretty or do it overly convincingly but the fact that they fought through and found a way to win was really pleasing,” Lenihan said.

    Fogarty is no certainty to return for the team’s Round 6 clash with Norths at Bishop Park on Saturday, with more to be known about his ankle complaint after a specialist appointment on Tuesday.

    “The scans aren’t showing good signs for him but he’s not feeling bad,” Lenihan said.

    “We have to get it checked out fully because the scans are saying that he’s ruptured a syndesmosis ligament but he is walking around and doing things that he shouldn’t be if it was fractured.”

    The Devils, who beat Papua New Guinea 34-22 on Saturday, are Burleigh’s nearest challenger at the top of the Intrust Super Cup ladder.

    Bears hold on against Capras
    https://www.qrl.com.au

    The top-of-the-table Burleigh Bears survived an almighty scare from the CQ Capras, earning themselves a 28-20 win in front of a healthy crowd at Marley Brown Oval, Gladstone.

    Played at the early time of 11.45am as a curtain-raiser to the NRL match between the Gold Coast Titans and Manly; the home crowd may have been disappointed with the final result – but were surely entertained by the high-scoring match.

    They can also be proud of their CQ team, who pushed the Bears all the way and even lead in stages of a great match to watch.

    As is often the case, it was a penalty that helped start the scoring after a solid start from both side, with hands in n the ball helping the Bears go deep into Capras territory. Once there, Kurtis Rowe made the most of the invitation, and crossed in left-hand side to open the scoring.

    The Bears then enjoyed the majority of the possession for the next stages of play, including a line dropout, with Dave Taylor taking the kick for the Capras.

    The home side then gave up another penalty; forcing themselves to defend another set of six – but it proved too much when Dallas Wells showed some footwork at the line before reaching out by the right-hand uprights in the 16th minute.

    The Capras continued to shoot themselves in the foot with errors when they did finally did get the ball and they continued to invite the Bears to score by giving away penalties.

    After gamely defending their own line for repeat sets (including hold up Luke Page who hit and spun his way over); they finally cracked again when hooker Pat Politoni worked the ball left for his side to continue the movement and put Tyronne Roberts-Davis over in the far left corner for a 12-0 lead.

    The Capras worked hard to change the momentum and got a penalty off the back of a good kick-return from Junior Kirisome.

    While nothing came from that play, they eventually worked their way into the game when five-eighth Blake Goodman scored in the 33rd minute after showing good awareness to take a quite tap with the Bears retreating with the backs turned.

    Despite some attention, he was able to get the ball down on the line. However, the conversion from Connor Broadhurst hit the uprights, but local fans were still breathing easier to only be trailing 12-4.

    They went back-to-back just before the break following another enthusiastic effort from Kirisome who put in a good chase and was able to bat the ball back before the team swung the ball to the vacant right-hand side for Chanel Seigafo to go over.

    The difficult kick for Connor Broadhurst from the eastern touchline was unsuccessful, leaving the halftime score 12-8 to the Bears, with all five conversion attempts from both teams unsuccessful.

    The Capras continued their charge in the second half and were the first to score, with Jamie Hill finding that he had been put onside after a kick ahead was touched by the defending Bears.

    This time, Broadhurst was able to score against his old team, raising the flags for a conversion for the first time today, earning a Capras lead.

    The home side had started to dominate Burleigh and were in again only four minutes later when Dave Cowhan touched the ball down after going for a strong run.

    Broadhurst had no trouble again, almost from the same spot to extend it to a 20-12 lead with 10 minutes gone in second half.

    With the sniff of an upset in the air; Burleigh lifted and it was reliable performer Politoni who lead the charge, going in under the posts after some strong runs from Josh Rogers and Page had set the platform.

    Rogers was able to kick the day’s first successful conversion for the Bears and his side were trailing 20-18.

    The momentum had swung and luck was going their way, and despite some messy play in the lead-up – the Bears were able to evade some scrambling defence; allowing Roberts-Davis to go over in the right-hand side to retake the lead 22-20.

    This time, the conversion hit the left upright – and with just under 10 to go; it was still anyone’s game.

    The Capras continued to show solid goal-line defence – but with three minutes left of the clock; the Bears were able to seal the win when a kick ahead from Rogers hit the legs Capras defenders to give him a perfect rebound back into his arms, before running in under the posts to score.

    Next week, the Bears will travel to Bishop Park to play the Devils, while the Capras will face off against Souths at Davies Park.

    Ex-Titans coach plots Bears fall

    FORMER Gold Coast assistant coach Rohan Smith is out to orchestrate Titans feeder club Burleigh’s first defeat of the Intrust Super Cup season tonight.

    After 18 months as Neil Henry’s assistant, Smith scored a head coaching opportunity with English side Bradford before making his way back to Queensland to coach Norths.

    “That (Bradford) was always a job that I envisaged myself having a crack at if it ever came up and it did, but obviously the club had a fair amount of financial trouble that I wasn’t totally aware of before I went over there,” Smith said.

    “My time at the Titans gave me good experience and put me in good stead for that role over there.”

    Smith’s Devils, who are searching for their first finals appearance since 2012, tonight host Burleigh – whose consistency he hailed – at Bishop Park from 5.30pm in a top of the ladder blockbuster.

    A continuation of Norths’ early season form could go a long way for Smith’s career progression.

    “It’s been my dream since I was 16 years old to be a coach of an NRL team,” he said.

    Coster’s shining among big names

    UNHERALDED Burleigh lock Sam Coster is giving coach Jimmy Lenihan no option but to keep giving him game time despite the abundance of big names around him.

    Coster’s sensational 222m running effort was pivotal to the Bears’ 28-20 win over Central Queensland last weekend and justified Lenihan’s faith in the former Illawarra Cutters player.

    The 24-year-old played 52 minutes in the victory, more than high-profile bench forwards Matt White, Jai Whitbread and Joe Greenwood – the last two are Titans contracted players. Former NRL second-rower Matt Robinson missed the cut altogether in a show of depth.

    “Jimmy sort of said it doesn’t matter where you come from, it’s just purely on how you’re playing and how your form is as to who gets the nod for minutes,” Coster said of the intense competition for spots.

    Coster believes today’s top of the table clash with Norths will be their biggest test yet.

    Tweed Heads Seagulls will be striving for their first victory of the year when they face Wynnum Manly at Kougari Oval today from 7pm.

    Norths Devils v Burleigh Bears
    http://www.qrl.com.au

    Bishop Park on Saturday, April 14 – 5.30pm
    Head-to-Head: Burleigh 24 Norths 19
    Twitter: #intrustsupercup #DEVILSvBEARS
    Livestream: Bears TV

    This will arguably be the game of the round with the undefeated Burleigh Bears traveling to face Norths, who have only dropped one game so far this year.

    Burleigh however has lost a key performer for their side, with Kurtis Rowe set to be sidelined for at least a month after fracturing his eye socket his side’s close win over the Capras in Gladstone last weekend.

    The Bears won last year at Bishop Park, but Norths have won the previous six games played there against Burleigh.

    Norths have won their past three home games, while the Bears have won five of their past six away games.

    Devils pair Michael Sio (pictured above) and Sam Tagataese have been impressive early on this season and are part of a leading pack so far in this year’s Courier Mail Medal race.
    There will be half-centuries all-round for the Bears with three players notching milestones. Josh Ailaomai (all Burleigh), 50th Cup game: Sami Sauiluma (51st game overall for Burleigh, including his Intrust Super Championship appearance in 2016) and 50th Cup game for Matthew White (previously with Ipswich, Tweed Heads and Easts Tigers).

    Devils win top of table clash with wounded Bears
    https://www.qrl.com.au/

    Norths shot a warning across the Intrust Super Cup tonight when they outplayed Burleigh Bears in a top-of-the-table showdown at Bishop Park.

    The Devils’ 20-4 win came after they weathered six consecutive penalties against them – including three in front of their posts – while trailing the unbeaten Bears in the first half.

    The Devils’ excellent defence and mistakes and injuries for the Bears turned the game.

    Halfback Jamal Fogarty was again missing for the Bears with an ankle injury suffered in Round 4 and he was joined on the sidelines by Jamie Dowling, Kurtis Rowe and Blake Leary who were all ruled out during the week.

    The casualty ward was even more crowded by fulltime as both Dallas Wells (hamstring) and Jai Whitbread (HIA) failed to finish the game with fresh injury concerns.

    However, that did not excuse their ball handling and the Devils were able to build a 6-4 halftime lead into an impressive win as their new halves combination Todd Murphy and Troy Dargan took advantage of their forwards’ grit.

    The win stamped the rebuilt Devils as an emerging team under new coach Rohan Smith who has brought together an overhauled team that is still forming its combinations. Some wobbling attacking sets were a sign that Norths have a long way to go despite the early wins.

    “There is a long way to go for us because it’s only early in the season but we toughed it out tonight particularly when we had some penalties go against us,” Smith said.

    “It was one of those nights when we had to stay calm to win that game. We bombed a try and it wasn’t always pretty but we managed to overcome an early deficit and win.”

    Burleigh opened the scoring in the third minute when winger Brenko Lee crossed in the left corner. But the visitors didn’t score another point.

    Bears five-eighth Wells was injured mid-way through the first half and took no further part in the game, adding to an injury count that has affected the Bears despite their slick start to the season.

    “I was proud of our guys. We hung in there given that we gave them as much ball as we did and they scored three tries from kicks,” Bears coach Jimmy Lenihan said.

    “We certainly didn’t play well but our effort never lacked.”

    The Devils took until the 35th minute to score their first points when prop Oshae Tuiasau pounced on a kick from Dargan close to the line.

    Norths finished strongly in the second half, edging to 12-4 when interchange prop Iain Riccardi scored his first try for the Devils from a dummy-half kick by Calum Gahan.

    Fullback Jack Ahearn was rewarded for his persistence in attack when he crossed in the 64th minute and a 72nd minute penalty goal by Murphy added to the scoreline.

    The Devils lost the penalty count 11-8 including the six consecutive penalties between the 18th and 29th minutes when they were forced to defend their line.

    Norths faces another test next weekend with a clash against the Blackhawks in Townsville while the Bears travel to BMD Kougari Oval to play Wynnum Manly in the Channel 9 (QLD) TV game on Saturday afternoon, while Burleigh are off to Townsville next week to take on the Blackhawks.

    Speedy Toby gets his chance to race
    http://www.goldcoast.com.au

    ALMOST 18 months after being plucked from the Northern Rivers Regional Rugby League, Toby McIntosh will today run out for his Intrust Super Cup debut.

    The 22-year-old has been named at fullback for Burleigh after first-choice No.1s Kurtis Rowe and Henare Wells sustained injuries.
    McIntosh signed with the Bears soon after helping the Murwillumbah Mustangs to the 2016 NRRRL premiership.
    Along the way, he was crowned the competition’s player of the year.

    The Matt Dunn Racing stable foreman was forced to work for his dream shot at the state league though, biding his time in the Rugby League Gold Coast A-grade competition for all of last season.

    McIntosh scored 21 tries in 19 games to help the Bears win the local title and showed off his strike power by putting Currumbin to the sword with a five-try haul.

    But his time is now: Round 7 against Wynnum Manly in the round’s televised fixture at Kougari Oval.
    Lenihan said McIntosh had blossomed into a player ready to thrive at ISC level.

    “He is a definite fullback, a runner of the ball, very quick,” Lenihan said. “There’s no doubt he had some ability and then last year was the year that he just learnt a little bit more about the next level of footy up.

    “He has got a lot of natural skill and ability, it’s just more the talking and some of the things that we’re trying to put in place here for that next step up in Queensland Cup and I think he has certainly done that.

    “He gets an opportunity with all of the people that have been injured and I’m really happy for him.”

    McIntosh forms part of an inexperienced Bears spine – outside of hooker Pat Politoni – with Josh Rogers and Chris Law stepping into the halves for injured lead playmakers Jamal Fogarty and Dallas Wells.

    Down at Piggabeen Sports Complex, Tweed Heads will tomorrow be out to back up their breakthrough last-start win over Wynnum.
    The clash with Easts will be Paul Stephenson’s first home match in charge as Seagulls chief executive.

    A former NRL player for Manly and Cronulla, Stephenson finished his playing career at Tweed in 2014 and immediately fell in love with the club’s culture and history.

    “I have played at a lot of different clubs … but I am so proud to have played for Seagulls with their history and I think as CEO it is my job to give the players an understanding of that history as well,” he said.

    Bears out to rectify midgame switch-off
    http://www.gcbulletin.com.au

    BURLEIGH rake Pat Politoni has called on the team’s interchange players to lift as the Intrust Super Cup ladder-leaders look to rectify the one major flaw of their campaign to date.

    The Bears have dominated the opening two months to sit clear on top of the table ahead of their Round 9 match against Townsville at Jack Manski Oval tonight.

    However, they have made life hard for themselves at times this season with a regular lull either side of halftime allowing opposition sides back into the contest.

    That trend was exposed for all to see last Sunday when Papua New Guinea scored tries in the 31st, 39th and 43rd minutes to put Burleigh in real danger at 18-12 down before a late charge got them home.

    “We are doing really good starts but there’s always that lapse towards halftime and the beginning of the second half where we let other teams in,” Politoni said.

    “It’s something that we have really talked about with Jimmy (Lenihan, coach) and have tried to work on it.

    “When our big guys come off like Whitey (Matt White) and Pagey (Luke Page), we need guys that are on the bench to come on with the same intensity and really lift and take their role seriously.

    “But we’re 7-1, we can’t complain. We’re really happy with our start, we have just got to keep kicking on.”

    Politoni has been showing every ounce of class that got him 16 NRL games and three Tests for Tonga, amassing impressive stats.

    The 27-year-old leads the competition in try assists (eight) and line break assists (seven), and is second in tackles made (274).
