PREVIEW

Souths Logan’s chances of a top two position were dashed last weekend as the Easts Tigers came to Davies Park and ruined their three game winning run as they handed them a 46-10 thrashing.

The Magpies can still finish in the top 4 and get home ground advantage in the first week of the finals, although if they do miss out on the top 4 it may be a blessing in disguise as Souths Logan have 5-6 record at home this year and have yet to beat a fellow top 6 side at home.

They have named a very strong squad, and should easily win this match, but the Capras, despite currently sitting second last have plenty to play for.

The Capras and Comets before them have spent some time around the foot of the Intrust Super ladder have managed to avoid the dreaded wooden spoon for most of those seasons. They currently sit just a point above last placed Tweed Heads, and all they have to do is match the Seagulls results to avoid last.

Wins, will also help that cause, but it is hard to see a team who have the season’s worse losing streak, currently 9 games without a win, beating a side full of the quality that Souths Logan have at their disposal this weekend.
