Eagles hover over bottom Bulls
THE Gold Coast Eagles will surge further out in front of the Gold Coast Rugby Union competition if they beat Nerang Bulls today.
The Bulls are rooted at the bottom of the table, while the high-flying Eagles are undefeated after three rounds.
Their only advantage comes from hosting the clash from 3.45pm.
With second-placed Surfers Paradise taking on third-placed Bond Pirates in another round four game (3.15pm), the Eagles can sit on their perch and watch the challengers pick each other off.
Bond is coming off a one-point loss to the Eagles, while Surfers thrashed Nerang 34-10.
It sets up the Pirates versus Surfers duel at Bond as the match of the round.
In the other game, Helensvale Hogs take on Griffith University at Helensvale from 3.15pm.
Palm Beach Currumbin can rest with a bye after notching up its first win of the season over the Hogs last weekend.
Meanwhile, the Coolangatta Tweed Barbarians are still searching for a win, three rounds into the second-grade competition.
They clash with Palm Beach Currumbin Alleygators at Currumbin tomorrow from 1.50pm and will be desperate to get the points.
Alleygators have won one of three games, but won't be easybeats.
