The TV Game looks a good one on Sunday afternoon as the 2016 Premiers Burleigh Bears take on a side who are looking very capable of replacing them as Premiers in the form of the Sunshine Coast Falcons.
Last time out:
The Sunshine Coast could hardly have been more impressive in defeating last placed Tweed Heads Seagulls 58-0. The Bears will be hoping that the Falcons don’t repeat the feat against Gold Coast sides. Burleigh lost the clash of the two most recent premiers at Ipswich in a tight affair 18-12.
Who to look out for:
There will be some interest in how Daniel Vidot goes on the wing for the Bears. The former Dragon and Bronco is trying to make his way into the Titans side, and given their luck with injuries probably won’t be waiting too long. An impressive performance for the Bears will keep his name at the top of the list.
For the Falcons iot is always worth keeping an eye on Jahrome Hughes. He was tremendous at fullback for the Queensland Residents on Sunday, and will no doubt be a vital cog for the Sunshine Coast on Sunday, playing at five eighth this weekend. He is a shining example of how strong the Melbourne Storm side is.
How they will win:
Whilst both packs are high quality and there is not much in it, the Falcons backline appears to have that little extra amount of impact, and with Justin Olam having something to prove after a quiet match for the PNG Kumuls last weekend.
