A STRONG first half performance counted for nothing when the Hervey Bay Seagulls took on the might of Bundaberg Brothers at the weekend.

The Seagulls led the Bundaberg side 12-8 when they played at Stafford Park in round 15 of the Bundaberg Rugby League competition in Hervey Bay on Saturday.

But the Bundaberg team came back strongly in the second half, beating the Seagulls 46-12.

The result leaves the Seagulls outside the top five and in danger of missing the finals series.

The other Fraser Coast team also had a match to forget, getting beaten 72-28 by Eastern Suburbs at Bundaberg's Salter Oval on Sunday.

The Wallaroos will take on the Seagulls in its final home match of the season on Saturday.

The last time to two teams met the Wallaroos won convincingly, beating the Seagulls 42-28.

The Wallaroos will be looking to cement its spot in the finals series, while the Seagulls will be aiming to keep its final hopes alive, giving the match between the two local rivals another dimension as the season nears its end.

The two teams will also determine the winner of the Barry Denduck Snr Memorial Shield, which is contested annually between the two sides.

Hervey Bay won the first match between the two teams earlier this season while Wallaroos won the second, so this match will be the decider.
