Round 12 Feeder Preview

Two teams in red-hot form will clash at Sunshine Coast Stadium on Sunday as the undefeated Sunshine Coast Falcons take on the second placed Burleigh Bears in round 12 of the Intrust Super Cup competition.

One and two meet on the back of big wins - the Falcons steamrolled the Jets last week and handed the home side a comprehensive 62-8 defeat, while the Bears dominated the Capras to win 34-12.

The Falcons are currently four points clear on top of the ladder with 11 wins from 11 games.

This weekend the side will boast three NRL contracted players in the spine - Nicho Hynes at fullback, Cooper Johns at five-eighth and Harry Grant at hooker, while powerhouse second-rower Tino Fa'asuamaleaui will start on the interchange bench.

Hynes, Johns and Grant continue to deliver scintillating performances each week.

Having slipped down the ladder after three consecutive losses, the seventh placed Easts Tigers will face Northern Pride at Langlands Park on Saturday.

The home side will be bolstered by the return of Albert Vete, who will add depth to the Tigers forward pack after missing four weeks through injury.

He will join NRL contracted players Pat Kaufusi and Billy Walters who have both been consistent for the Tigers. 

Easts have won both of their previous two meetings with Pride.
