RUGBY LEAGUE: The Sunshine Coast suffered a 28-12 defeat to Burleigh at Pizzey Park on Saturday evening.
The Falcons trailed 10-6 at the break before slipping off the pace in the second stanza.
The loss leaves the side in a familiar position, at the foot of the Intrust Super Cup ladder.
The Sunshine Coast lost its opening round clash against Norths at Bokarina and its second round match against Northern Pride at Cairns was postponed due to adverse weather conditions.
The two losses came despite the presence of a handful of Melbourne Storm players.
The relationship between the two clubs had provided Falcons fans with pre-season hope after recent seasons, when the side did not enjoy an affiliation with an NRL club and slumped to consecutive wooden spoons.
