Two wins to clinch perfect season
SPRINGFIELD and Ipswich will host their final home games of the Brisbane Club Rugby season this weekend.
For the Ipswich Rangers it will be a rare Saturday night game against the Redcliffe Sea Snakes from 6.30pm.
With the Rangers in ninth, and Redcliffe in 11th, both sides have missed their chance at finals football. But with two games left for the year there is still plenty of pride on the line.
After a disappointing loss to Springfield last weekend, Ipswich will be looking to finish their season on a positive note.
For Springfield Hawks their final home game will be a second straight local derby when they host the Goodna Gladiators from 3pm tomorrow. While the Hawks have remained undefeated all season the Gladiators have won nine of 14 games to round out the top six teams in the Barber Cup.
For Springfield Barber Cup coach Jeremy Clark, a win in the final two weeks would seal a sensational year for the defending premiers.
"You always want to finish with a win at home," Clark said. "We've been building nicely going into the finals and it would be nice to finish the season without a loss.
"There's still area where we can improve and Goodna will be a good test."
The Hawks have amassed almost 800 points from 14 games this season, and conceded just 128. On average, Springfield have defeated their oppositions by a scoreline of 57-9 in 2016.
A final away game against Caboolture next week will provide the Hawks with their biggest challenge of the season.
WOODEND Park will be home to more than a hundred junior rugby stars this weekend as the Ipswich Rangers host the Queensland Schools U15s State Championships.
Commencing on Thursday, the four-day carnival will hold 34 games between teams from across South East Queensland, Darling Downs and the Northern Peninsula.
