RUGBY LEAGUE: Gladstone Valleys face a difficult task against the reigning premiers of the Rockhampton Rugby League extended A-grade competition.

Valleys travel to Rocky to take on Norths Chargers after losing 46-22 to Biloela Panthers at the weekend.

For the Panthers, it's business as usual as they prepare for an away round two encounter against Tannum Seagulls this Saturday night.

Biloela coach Ryan Wilson liked what he saw in the match against the Seagulls and hopes his players can maintain their form.

"It was a good game, pretty even to start off with before we ran away with it at the end," Wilson said.

With front rowers Byron Hassall and Peter Rogers providing plenty of drive, Wilson said his team got on top midway through the first half.

"About 20 minutes into it is where we began to get on top," he said.

Wilson said the numbers had been consistent at training and there was a sprinkling of emerging players coming through.

He said the team would not have many changes for the clash against the Seagulls.

"We have a few young fellas popping up in the A-grade which is good," Wilson said.

"We are not that young a side so it's good to see some young players coming through."

Wilson has a Gladstone connection, he was involved at the Gladstone Wallabys in 2011 and 2012.

He spent time at the Burleigh Bears and in Perth and is in his second year at the Panthers.

They finished fifth last season.

Biloela Panthers have a round three home match against Gladstone Brothers before a Sunday afternoon away game against Rockhampton Brothers in round four on April 9.

The Observer urges all rugby league clubs to email their U20, Reserves and A-grade results with individual scorers through to by Sunday 2pm at the latest.
