THE Stanthorpe Gremlins will host the second weekend of Border Rugby League double-headers at Sullivan Oval this Saturday.

The first game, kicking off at 1.30pm, will take place between first and second-placed teams, Tenterfield and Inglewood.

The teams are sitting at 15 and 16 points respectively.

BRL chairman Norm Crisp said this game would be played for the Patrons Cup, the winner of which should host the grand final on August 26.

The Gremlins will face Killarney at 3pm.

"The Stanthorpe boys had a comfortable win last time these two teams met, and much will depend on the availability of players for both teams,” Crisp said.

"A much closer game is expected this time, so supporters should see two good games of rugby league this Saturday, this also being the last game at Sullivan Oval for the seniors this year.”

This Saturday will also mark the RizeUp round, which will see the Warwick and District and BRL regions get behind a campaign to end domestic violence.

QRL operations manager Michael Jensen, who is helping to co-ordinate the round, said it was a significant event for the competition.

"The RizeUp Charity provides real practical assistance to victims of domestic violence by helping to furnish and fill a home with basic essential items that families would

normally need when moving into a bare home,” Jensen said.

"RizeUp makes sure that homes families are moving into are complete with love and care from the community.”

This is the second year that the QRL Central Division, local leagues and clubs have supported this wonderful charity.

Last Saturday, the Tenterfield Tigers stayed on top of the points table after scoring a 58-12 win against Stanthorpe at Rugby League Park in Tenterfield.

Tenterfield held the BRL double-header as part of Aub's Day, an annual event in memory of the late Aub Gillespie, a long-time patron and passionate supporter of the Tigers.

The crowd at Tenterfield was the biggest of the year at Rugby League Park.

Going into the double header, Tenterfield had a one-point lead over Inglewood with Killarney third and Stanthorpe fourth on the table.

Farran Anderson scored four tries and Malcolm Whiteman two tries to lead the scoring for Tenterfield.

Brendan Minns landed seven goals for the winners.

Best players in the game were Minns and Adam Clothier (Tenterfield) and Nicholas Marsh (Stanthorpe).

Clothier was the Tenterfield players' player.

Meanwhile, Brent Hearne and Ian Thompson scored two tries each in an Inglewood 46-0 win against Killarney.
