TWEED Heads Seagulls have swept into outright fourth place on the Queensland Rugby League Intrust cup ladder following several intriguing round 20 results over the weekend.

The Seagulls blitzed Central Capras 34-10 at Piggabeen on Sunday while up at Redcliffe, the Dolphins did them a big favour in tossing Easts Tigers 32-14.

Seagulls move into fourth place on 25 points, one ahead of the Tigers and trailing only the Dolphins (34), Wynnum-Manly-31 and Ipswich Jets (26).

Wynnum's 16-16 draw with Ipswich Jets has dented their minor premiership hopes and the Jets' loss has opened the door for the Seagulls to snare a vital top three possie.

Northern Pride (22 Points) and Norths Devils (21) had their semi-finals hopes dashed with a 28-28 draw on Saturday.

The stage is set for an exciting finish to the home-and-away series in the countdown to the semi-finals.

NRRRL

MURWILLUMBAH will host Grafton Ghosts in the Northern Rivers Regional rugby league first grade major-semi-final at Stan Sercombe Oval next Sunday after the defending premiers posted a solid 24-8 win over Byron Bay in the qualifying final in Grafton on Sunday.

Byron Bay will be in action this Saturday at home in the minor semi-final in which they will clash with Ballina, 20-12 victors over Marist Brothers in the elimination final at Ballina on Saturday.

Bycroft Cup

IN Gold Coast Tweed Rugby League action, the final round in the Bycroft Cup was played out on Sunday with all the top four sides into the semi-finals notching victories.

At the end of the home-and-away series, South Tigers are the minor premiers 30 points ahead of Burleigh 28, Tugun 28, Bilambil 25, Runaway Bay 18, Currumbin 17, Tweed Coast 8 and Cudgen 6.

Runaway Bay hung onto fifth spot despite being flogged 42-0 by Burleigh Bears.

Currumbin's season ended with a 26-4 defeat at the hands of Southport.

In other results, Bilambil walloped Tweed Coast 52-10 and Tugun beat Cudgen 62-20.

Gold Coast Soccer

MURWILLUMBAH FC need only one point from its last two matches to win the Gold Coast Soccer first division championship - a deferred game against Griffith University on Tuesday night and the final home-and-away match against second-placed Tweed United next Saturday.

Both leading sides recorded solid victories on Saturday, a below strength MFC beating Robina City 4-1 and United getting home 8-5 in a goal-a-thon against Burleigh Heads.

MFC sit on 38 points, two clear of second-placed Tweed United and have superior goals-for-and-against figures - +55 against United's +38.

United's only hope of leap-frogging MFC is if the leaders get beaten by Griffith Uni and they topple the championship front-runners on Saturday.

Tweed Valley Kings' Premier League season ended on a disappointing note with last year's high-fliers thrashed 8-1 by Broadbeach United at Reg Dalton on Saturday.
