Top and tail of AFL table collide

The Bull Sharks will be looking to charge ahead in the intensifying QFA and QAFLW competitions in two away games against Tweed Coast and Wilston Grange on Saturday.

Both of Bond’s opponents have fallen to the bottom of their respective ladders this season while the Bull Sharks are sitting at number four in the Women’s comp with the men’s team at the top of the table.

“Last week against Ballina was a really hard-fought win - it almost felt like a finals game the way it was played - so I reckon we’ll be pretty confident going into this one because of how we held up last week,” Bond midfielder Axel Moore said.

Moore attributes the team’s success so far this season to the players’ persistence and resilience in the face of challenges.

“Our adaptability through these last few weeks especially has been pretty awesome,” he said.

“We haven’t been able to train on any ovals and every session for about four weeks we wouldn’t know what we were doing until a few hours before.

“We’ve been able to keep motivation and keep the vibes up at training even when everything’s up in the air and it’s pretty easy to lose sight of what we’re training for.

“I guess that’s why we shone through on the weekend after having those few weeks off and I reckon it will be our attitude that gets us across the line again this weekend.”

While the men head south to play Tweed at Seabreeze Oval, the women will be taking a trip up the M1 to replay their round one rivals at Hickey Park.

The senior team kickstarted the season with an 85-0 victory over Wilston Grange while the reserves also left the opposition scoreless to win by a triple-digit margin at The Canal.

This time, the Bull Sharks will contest Wilston Grange on their home turf, their first time playing at the Brisbane grounds this season.

Men’s seniors: 2pm at Seabreeze Oval

Women’s seniors: 4.45pm at Hickey Park

Men’s reserves: 12pm at Seabreeze Oval

Women’s reserves: 6.45pm at Hickey Park
