Souths Logan Magpies registered another good win after defeating the 2016 premiers Burleigh on Sunday afternoon at Davies Park. The Magpies secured the two competition point courtesy of their four tries to the Bears’ three, but it could have been closer and more stressful had the Bears kicked any of their conversions.
The first half was all Souths Logan as they scored three tries to none, the first of them in the eighth minute to hooker Travis Waddell back from representing the Broncos the previous weekend. They led 18-0 at the break.
Burleigh scored just after half time to reduce the gap, but the Magpies extended the gap further still with a try to five eighth Matt Minto five minutes later. Minto was to score one more time, but it was a pressure relieving 74th minute field goal, after Burleigh had scored twice in five minutes to get within 12 points. That could have been a 6 point gap with more than 15 minutes to play if the conversions went over, so the Magpies were lucky they weren’t under more pressure.
A shame for Burleigh as they couldn’t back up last weekend’s drought breaking win, unlike the Magpies who have now won four in a row.

Souths Logan Magpies continue to impress, and climb the Intrust Super Cup ladder.
Having supplied the Broncos with plenty of players throughout 2017, they were depleted further still last weekend and still got the win against the Easts Tigers. They climbed to fourth as a result, and are on a run of three straight wins.
Burleigh also impressed last weekend with a stirring come from behind win against Mackay. They looked dead and buried in Mackay, but found some of that spirit that took them to a premiership last year and overcame the Cutters.
