Classic league rivalry ramps up this Sunday
AlWAYS a physical battle, the local derby between Tweed Seagulls and Burleigh Bears should be no different in this coming weekend's Intrust Super Cup fixture at Pizzey Park.
Last time the two sides clashed all hell broke loose, Seagulls Beau Henry and the Bears Todd Seymour going toe to toe in a violent brawl.
On the weekend neither player with take the field due to injury, with Henry's ACL damage ending his season.
Seagulls coach Aaron Zimmerle knows how tough the contest will be at Burleigh, with the bears always having a strong side more often than not stacked with Titan's signings.
"It is always a tough match, we have Tom Dawning coming back into the side hopefully, which will strengthen the backline," Mr Zimmerle said.
There are slight concerns over the condition of Gold Coast playing fields with all the rain this week, but fingers are crossed and there is hope that Pizzy will hold up for the big clash.
The competition has a bye next week due to Queensland residents playing the State of Origin game three curtain raiser.
