Where to get your footy fix this weekend
Souths Sharks v Sarina Crocodiles at Ray Edwards Oval 6pm
Both sides will play their second trial match. The Sharks were defeated 22-6 by the Whitsunday Brahmans two weeks ago. Sarina go into the trial after defeating Carltons last weekend.
Whitsundays Brahmans v Mackay Brothers at Les Stagg Oval 6pm
After postponing their Peter Keogh Shield carnival, Brothers are hungry to get a run in against the new-look Whitsunday Brahmans.
The Proserpine team had to cancel its trip to Townsville for the Sam Faust Memorial Shield clash against Centrals because of rain last weekend.
Mackay Magpies v Norths Chargers at Sologinkin Oval
Magpies took on the Burdekin Roosters in February, where they lost 22 – 14. The Mackay side hosts Rockhampton club Norths Chargers this weekend.
Wests Tigers v Western Lions at Western Lions Park, Townsville
The Tigers are the only Mackay team to make the trip outside of the region this weekend. Last season’s runners-up will take a bus to Townsville for the annual battle with their big cat rivals.
Lions won last year’s match 30-22 and the Tigers will not have the home field advantage this time.
