Gremlins take on premiers

RUGBY LEAGUE: The top-of-the-table Gremlins travel to Killarney to face last year's premiers today

In what is sure to be one of the matches of the season, the Gremlins will be full of confidence following their 64-8 drubbing of Wallangarra in Stanthorpe last weekend.

Killarney will also be looking to continue their season turnaround, after a remarkable 36-30 win against table-toppers Tenterfield.

BRL treasurer Mike Hayes said he was really looking forward to the battle of the forwards in today's match.

"I think the forward clash between John Trindall and Kyle Marsh will be superb," he said.

"These two forwards leave nothing on the field and their commitment to their respective teams' success relies on their involvement for 80 minutes.

"Stanthorpe are without a few good players and Killarney will be very hard to beat on their home ground, so we're in for one great game on Saturday."

Wallangarra will travel to Tenterfield today to try to reclaim some lost confidence after their big loss to Stanthorpe.

Hayes says the clash between captain-coach of Tenterfield Brendan Minns and returning Wallangarra halfback Coedie Tandy will be an intense battle.

"Both players have superb ball-handling skills," he said.

"In the forwards, Tenterfield may just have a slight edge and therefore metres up the middle will be key to the final outcome of this match."

Hayes has predicted a Stanthorpe win by four points and suggests Tenterfield can get the job done over Wallangarra by 10.
