The return of Souths Logan Magpies captain Annette Brander headlines the mouthwatering match up between Souths Logan and Easts Tigers in Round 2 of the Holcim Cup on Saturday.

Brander, who missed last week due to injury is raring to go and lead the Souths Logan forward pack which was outstanding during Round 1, with Stephanie Hancock and Jamie-Lee Lewis picking up team of the week honours in SLM’s 13-12 win against WB Panthers.

With Tash Purontakanen out with a knee injury, it’s forced a shuffle in the backline with Tamika Upton starting at Fullback with Hayley Maddick going onto the wing, while Rivey Smalley will line up at centre to replace Purontakanen.

Easts Tigers will come into the clash with a strong forward pack led by their captain Liahona Theodore, who will give Easts plenty of strong carries out of their own end all day.

Head Coach Rob Brough is expecting the Tigers to be a fantastic challenge for his group-
“Easts are a very well coached side with good discipline and strong ball runners through the middle and we will need to be great in both areas to challenge the strong Tigers outfit”

The clash at Bishop Park will have a 4pm kickoff.
