The Coal Train is coming to Maryborough this week

LEAGUE: The Coal Train will roll into Maryborough on Saturday when Eskdale Park hosts the first of two Intrust Super Cup games in two weeks.

Dave Taylor and his Central Queensland Capras will face the Burleigh Bears in the Country Week clash.

Taylor played 181 NRL games at Brisbane, South Sydney, Gold Coast Titans and Canberra as well as 26 Super League games for Catalans Dragons.

He had originally agreed to join the Toronto Wolfpack but was sacked by Kingstone Press Championship side before playing a game for the Canadian outfit. He chose to return to the Capras, the Rockhampton club closest to his hometown of Blackwater.

Former Bundaberg Rugby League star Aaron Flanagan, who played Waves Tigers last season, may also play for the Capras in the Intrust Super Cup clash.

The 13th-placed Capras face a sizable challenge in the shape of Burleigh, the former league leaders who lost its second straight game on Saturday.

The Bears fell 40-28 to Redcliffe, and this week's game shapes as a must-win for the Gold Coast Titans feeder club.

A full day of fixtures is planned, as juniors kick off at 8.30am. The Intrust Super Cup game kicks off at 3pm, before Wallaroos face Waves Tigers at 5pm.
