Kini eligible for Cup finals as Burleigh, Tweed aim for big dance

Keano Kini will be a huge boost for Burleigh should the teen sensation be named for the Bears in Saturday's preliminary final at Pizzey Park.

Having played 12 games in the Hostplus Cup this season alongside six appearances in the top grade, the 19-year-old dynamo is eligible to return to help the Gold Coast affiliate's chances of defeating the Wynnum Manly Seagulls to progress to grand final day next Sunday, September 15.

The final decision on Kini will be made on game day; meanwhile, Jacob Alick is set to be included in the final 17 after missing week one of the QRL finals due to NRL selection, having played a majority of games in Cup for Burleigh in 2023.

He'll join fellow Titans Tony Francis, Iszac Fa'asuamaleaui and Josiah Pahulu in the clash.

Kick-off is at 2.10pm on Saturday at Pizzey Park, Burleigh.

Following that clash, the Tweed Seagulls will be hoping to be part of history and play in the final Hastings Deering Colts grand final, facing off against the Townsville Blackhawks in the Under 21 preliminary final.

Three full-time Gold Coast train-and-trial palyers in Jaylan De Groot, Oskar Bryant and Ryan Foran will feature in the clash for the Seagulls, who finished top of the table and made light work of the Bears in week one, winning 46-10.

That match kicks off after the Hostplus Cup at 4.10pm.
