Have a look through the Suzuki Brisbane Tigers results from 10 September and their 2023 Grand Final appearances.
Finals Week 3 (Preliminary Final): Suzuki Brisbane Tigers 14 def CQ Capras 6
Our Hostplus Cup Tigers clinched their place in the 2023 Grand Final with a tough-fought win against the Central Queensland Capras in front of a near-full home crowd.
A gutsy and gritty preliminary final performance from the Tigers secured them a spot in the premiership decider with the Burleigh Bears.
On home turf at Totally Workwear Stadium, the Tigers scored three-tries-to-one to earn themselves their first grand final appearance since 2018.
Both teams threw everything they had into the do-or-die clash, with the scoreline locked at 8-6 for 38 minutes. But it was a try to Melbourne Storm affiliated centre Kane Bradley in the 71st minute that broke the tension and sealed the deal for the home side.
Tigers’ captain Ryley Jacks was proud of his team’s effort after the match, particularly in defence, as they only leaked one try to the Capras in the 8th minute.
“That was a tough game and it reminded me a lot of the last time we played them here. It was a real tight game, not many points.
We did so well to defend… it was just unreal. We just kept turning up.
We knew they were a real set-for-set team but so are we.
Defence wins premierships. If we get our D right, our attack will fall into line.
It will be the same next week, it has been the same for 22 games now. Nothing will change for us. We back our D.”
At the Cup level, it has been 32 years since the Tigers won a title and for Jacks – a local junior – it would mean everything to break that drought come Sunday.
“Just for the club… this club being successful means a whole heap to me.
“My first game when I was a six-year-old was with the Tigers. It has been my club pretty much all my life so it means a lot.
“But just getting there is not good enough and we know that.
We need to win one. It has been a long time. The job is not done at all.”

HASTINGS DEERING COLTS
Finals Week 3 (Preliminary Final): Suzuki Brisbane Tigers 36 def Redcliffe Dolphins 14
Our Colts booked their place in the 2023 Grand Final with a convincing win over the Redcliffe Dolphins in front of a thrilled home crowd at Totally Workwear Stadium.
The Tigers and Dolphins traded punches early with both teams scoring in the first five minutes.
The Dolphins had the lead and were looking good but then our Tigers found their rhythm and were humming along from there.
Tigers Casey Morgan was again outstanding with 223 run metres while Brock Ashton made 43 tackles to stop the Dolphins’ attack from gaining any momentum.
Fullback Lachlan West nabbed a double while co-skipper Simon Pratt put in a true captain’s knock with a hat-trick of tries, 116 run metres, six tackle breaks and 23 tackles.
The Tigers’ defence was so good the Dolphins didn’t score for 65 minutes. That’s the kind of effort needed to win premierships.
