FOUR of the five QLD Wizard Cup matches this weekend will have players vying for XXXX City selection, while the other game is a clash between traditional heavyweights North Queensland and Burleigh.

GRL Tip: Ipswich

AFTER Ipswich snared five places in the XXXX Country team, Norths players will be out to impress ahead of the XXXX City side being named on Sunday night.

The Devils have shown encouraging signs in recent weeks without necessarily getting the result, while red-hot Ipswich goes looking for its eighth win of the last nine weeks.

One player that will be missing for Norths is teenage forward James Sharkie, suspended for a grade two careless high tackle against Wynnum Manly.

This will be Ipswich captain Danny Coburn’s 199th Wizard Cup game for the Jets.

Picked at lock for Country, Coburn is set to become only the fourth person to reach the double century on June 30 against Tweed Heads. Norths’ skipper Marc Brentnall has been Players’ Player for three weeks in a row.

GRL Tip: Norths

THE Young Guns were handed arguably their most painful loss of the season back in Round three when Burleigh out-hustled them on ABC TV.

At the time the performance gave cause for concern for the northerners, while boosting the Bears’ premiership credentials.

However since then it has been an about-face and North Queensland remains in top spot, while Burleigh is clawing to regain a space in the top five.

Benchman Travis Simpson has been a late scratching for Burleigh, with Josh Blatch brought in.

Meanwhile Josh Graham is named in the second row, with Country selection Leigh Coghill out. The Young Guns welcome back Ben Vaeau, Scott Bolton and Neil Sweeney.

GRL Tip: Easts Tigers

CENTRAL received a dose of good news on Thursday night, with Tyron Haynes cleared of a dangerous throw charge. Haynes was among the better players in the Comets’ 28-10 loss to Burleigh in Round 13.

This looms as an intriguing match up, with the home team gaining confidence as of late and Easts dropping outside the top five.

The last clash between the Tigers and Comets in Rockhampton was a particularly fiery affair, won 12-6 by Easts in the final round of 2006.

Trent Henrick returns from suspension on the bench for Easts, with Kev Stephensen slotting into the centres. For the Comets, Yoren Major shifts into hooker, while Guy Williams slides from centre to pivot and allows James Munns a starting role in the centres.

GRL Tip: Redcliffe

DOLPHINS centre Nick Emmett will play his 50th game for Redcliffe, having started out his Wizard Cup career with Souths Logan.

While Redcliffe can be expected to bounce back after a disjointed 20-4 loss to Aspley in round 13, there is no guarantee of Souths Logan giving the reigning premier a saloon passage.

Indeed the Magpies were unlucky to lose 20-16 to first-placed North Queensland last week.

Centre Shaun Spring makes way for Tanu Wulf out wide, while teenager Matthew Burnham comes onto the Magpie bench.

Redcliffe’s Shane Perry is under siege as the leading active try-scorer in the competition.

Last week Burleigh fullback Nick Parfitt drew equal and they both have 81 Wizard Cup tries to their name. Redcliffe is currently second on the table, while Souths Logan is in tenth place.

GRL Tip: Tweed Heads

WYNNUM Manly has been boosted by the return of two handy players, with Ron Troutman shrugging off retirement and Steve Irwin back from the Canberra Raiders.

Troutman is listed to start at halfback in FOGS Cup and needs just one more Wizard Cup game with Wynnum to bring up 100 for the club. Irwin is not expected to play for several weeks.

Tweed Heads has been gathering momentum of late and is unbeaten for the past six weeks.

Rookie Shannon Walker is celebrating his selection in the XXXX Country team, along with Tweed stalwarts Andrew Moroney and Nathanael Barnes.

Back for the southerners is Michael Hodgson, while fellow NRL-contracted forward Luke O’Dwyer continues his return from injury.

In the first chapter of the ‘Battle of the Seagulls’ this year, Wynnum Manly won 12-6. On current standings Tweed Heads is fifth, while Wynnum is in ninth
