Bears blitz in second half halts Magpies

Kevin Braysher Burleigh Bears correspondent

Five second half tries lifted Burleigh Bears to victory over the Souths Logan Magpies at Davies Park to close out the Round 5 Red Socks Round weekend of matches.

After trailing by 10 points at the break, the Essential Coffee Burleigh Bears found their rhythm in the second stanza, posting 30 points as they notched their third win of the season.

Middle forwards Luke Page and Jai Whitbread were outstanding for the visitors, while Kurtis Rowe crossed for a late double to seal the victory.

Red Socks Round Supports Little Queenslander

A purple spotty rash when Grayson was just eight months old was the first warning signs of his life-threatening genetic illness, which currently has no cure.

In December 2017, Rachel and Leighton noticed the rash on their baby’s body, and took him immediately for tests.

“Blood tests determined his platelet levels were nearly 0 and he was rushed into hospital,” Rachel recalled.

Following numerous tests failing to identify a cause, Grayson was flown from Mackay Base Hospital to the Queensland Children’s Hospital in Brisbane, where doctors took a sample from Grayson’s bone marrow and discovered he was experiencing bone marrow failure.

“Further genetic testing, identified that he has TERT gene mutations and short telomeres, finally resulting in a diagnosis, of Dyskeratosis congenita and unfortunately the more severe variant, Hoyeraal-Hreidarsson syndrome.

These conditions mean for the rest of Grayson’s life, there are high chances he may experience liver, lung or other organ failures, as well as a high risk of cancer.

“Over the past six months we have had nearly a dozen hospital stays in Queensland Children’s Hospital and Mackay Base Hospital, treating low blood levels, receiving blood transfusions, reoccurring bleeding issues, tests and procedures to identify the extent of Grayson’s medical issues and tissue typing to find a match for a bone marrow transplant,” Rachel explained.

Grayson has also been the recipient of two bone marrow transplants, while doctors monitor a range of other issues as a result of his condition, including serious concerns for his eye sight if not treated as soon as possible.

“The Bone marrow transplant is extremely risky to his life, however, we feel it is the best option for the longevity of his life,” Rachel explained.

“Grayson also has a small cerebellum (back of the brain) which has caused him to have significant developmental delays.  He has extensive physiotherapy, speech therapy and occupational therapy to help him gain motor skills and language development.”

“The bone marrow transplant will help to solve his blood and bone marrow issues, however there is no cure for his overall diagnosis and there is so much uncertainty for his future.”

“Grayson’s diagnosis was a long process, needing the genetic research to be done in order to completely understand what was causing his bone marrow failure and any implications for his future. It was devastating to find out he has a life-threatening illness that has been passed down genetically and may affect Grayson and any future children for our family.

“Grayson is at such a young age, so he is oblivious to the impacts this disorder is having on his life and causing his delays. He is still a happy, charming, TINY, one-year-old who brings joy to all those around him.”

Ask us today, about becoming a blood donor and joining the Australian Bone Marrow Registry.

Did you know:

  • Coming into Easter, the Red Cross Blood Service traditionally sees a drop in people donating over the Easter break. While many of us take a break over Easter, the need for blood, as seen with Grayson, doesn’t take a break. Blood donor centres are open on Easter Saturday and Easter Monday.
  • One in three people will need blood in our lifetime, but only one in 30 currently gives blood.
  • For more information or to make an appointment, call 13 14 95 or visit
  • Signing up to the Australian Bone Marrow Donor Registry is simple – just make an appointment to donate blood and sign up in the donor centre.
  • To join the bone marrow registry in Australia you need to be:

– Aged between 18-45

– In good health

– Willing to donate for anyone in the world.

 For more information about joining the bone marrow registry, please visit or call 13 14 95 to make an appointment to donate blood and join the registry.

Field goal gets Dolphins first win of the season

Jon Sloan
Redcliffe Dolphins correspondent

It took a field goal in the 76th minute by skipper Bryce Donovan for Redcliffe Dolphins to secure their first win in 188 days.

Going into the match without the experienced Aaron Whitchurch and Broncos contracted players Jamil Hopoate and Cory Paix, and given the wet conditions, the game was expected to be a tight affair against Souths Logan Magpies.

The Dolphins started well with gun hooker Jake Turpin crossing the line, but he was unable to get the ball down.

Then it was like groundhog day for the Dolphins, conceding a penalty immediately putting themselves under pressure in defence and Magpies made the home side pay when Mitchell Frei crossed untouched to give the Magpies a 4-0 lead.

For the second week in a row, the Dolphins lost a player after ten minutes of play with fullback Trai Fuller leaving he field with an ankle injury that left him unable to return to the field of play.

Wearing their heritage jerseys, the Dolphins defence midway through the first half took you back to the 1980s when Wally Fullerton-Smith and Bryan Niebling ruled the ruck for the Dolphins.

Led by Turpin and the returning Nathan Watts, the pair were hunting the Magpies attackers with brute force.

But the Magpies were more than willing to cop the punishment and deal some of their own back with Patrick Mago, Brendon Gibb and Harrison Muller leading the charge.

Further tries to Simone Fatafehi for the Magpies and Dolphins’ Jeremy Hawkins in the shadows of the halftime siren saw the teams go to the break locked at 10-10.

Powerful performance from Devils grounds Magpies

Norths Devils Media

The Norths Devils showed off their depth as they ran in eight tries against Souths Logan Magpies in their 42-16 XXXX Rivalry Round victory at Davies Park today.

Coach Rohan Smith unveiled a settled Devils spine after the club’s Broncos-contracted halves were ruled out with injury.

That enabled Smith to play a spine that had trained together all summer and played trial matches, working around a team-oriented attacking style that is a pleasure to watch when it clicks.

It was a sweet sight for the Devils faithful who crossed the river on a steamy Sunday afternoon.

They watched the Magpies score in the first minute before the Devils took control, surging to a 20-4 lead in the shadows of halftime after lock Brandon Lee had scored in the 25th and 29th minutes.

The Magpies swooped on a Devils loose ball inside the last minute of the half only to lose it, watching as Norths sent the ball through four sets of hands in a lightning left-hand raid that ended in a try for Nixon Putt in his 50th Intrust Super Cup match. The Devils led 24-4 at the break.

The Magpies fought back with tries in the 48th and 54th minute, setting up the game for another tight finish. Both clashes between the Devils and Magpies were decided in Norths’ favour by two points last season.

But Devils skipper Jack Ahearn found his way through the tiring Magpies middle in the 66th minute, throwing a dummy that opened his path for a vital try.

Norths enjoyed the last 10 minutes as interchange forward Chris Sio scored within one minute of taking the field for his Devils debut. He crossed again three minutes later in the final scoring act of a comprehensive win.


The result pushed Norths to a 2-1 record for the season, but more tests are to come, starting with Sunday’s clash with the Falcons on the Sunshine Coast.

“That was a trying day because of the heat, but I was pleased with how the squad stuck with it even when Souths made their comeback in the second half,” Smith said.

The Devils have a common element in their wins under Smith – they rely on a team-effort that can cause problems across the park.

The Devils sent out new Devil #1283 Beau Cordtz, who enjoyed his debut, sending the key final pass for Paul Ulberg’s opening try in the 10th minute.

Cordtz, who joined the Devils from the Gold Coast, played well while Ahearn and Zach Strasser ensured that Norths were well served in the absence of injured Broncos Troy Dargan and Sean O’Sullivan.
