Queensland Cup?s most successful teams face off
A do-or-die meeting of the two most successful clubs in Queensland Cup history, Burleigh and Redcliffe, is expected to nudge the competition's ground record at Pizzey Park today.
While it will be a tough ask to top the 4100 that Burleigh set in a pre-season match against the Newcastle Knights, Bears officials are confident of beating the 3200 they had against Toowoomba in 2001.
With 168 wins, Redcliffe is the most dominant team since the Cup's inception in 1996. Burleigh ranks second on 143 wins, but has played one less season.
Burleigh has an injury concern for back Balin Cupples, who has not trained since being hospitalised after the major semi-final loss against North Queensland last week.
He is expected to play.
The game kicks off at 2pm.
BURLEIGH: Reggie Cressbrook, Balin Cupples, Nick Shaw, Trent Leis, Aseri Laing, Adam Hayden, David Hicks, Ali Brown, Matt Doeg, Shane O'Flanagan, Martin Griese, Adam Hutchison, Adrian Vowles. Interchange: James Griffiths, Jeremy Lateo, Chris Barnes, Robert Apanui.
