Rd. 20 -Intrust Super Cup Update

It was a mixed weekend for the Aquis Titans feeder teams in Instust Super Cup's Country Week.

The Burleigh Bears maintain their spot on the top of the competition ladder with a 46-26 win over the Ipswich Jets at Albert Park, Gympie.

The Bears put on a red-hot performance to excite the large country crowd scoring seven tries with winger Waka Wanahi scoring a double as the Bears scored their 15th win of the season to go three points clear of the Redcliffe Dolphins.

With Jamal Fogarty converting all seven tries and kicking an extras two penalties he has shot to the top of the point-scoring leader board with a massive 206 points for the season.

Bears coach Jimmy Lenihan said despite the score-line it was a tough contest with the Ipswich side not relenting.

“Ipswich mentally and physically exhaust you, just when you think you have got a rest, they bring the ball back in front of you and pull your pants down,” he said.

“We scored a lot of points early which still gave them a lot of time on the clock and they were kicking and chasing and doing a lot of things.”

Meanwhile the injury-ravaged Tweed Seagulls outfit went down swinging in their 28-16 loss to the Sunshine Coast Falcons Charleville Show Grounds, Charleville.

The Seagulls lost Ali Grant, Sam Meskell, Michael Burgess and Tevita Folau before kick-off and were forced into a back-line reshuffle.

Despite this the Seagulls put in a solid performance and managed to go into the final 20 minutes of the match trailing 14-10 after back-to-back tries by Cory Blair and Josh Coyle.

But the class of the Falcons outside back which included NRL player Ryan Morgan was on display in the final stanza with the side putting on three late tries to run away with the 28-16 victory.

With the loss the Seagulls find themselves in 11th position but will be hoping to turn things around when they take on the Wynnum Manly Seagulls next week.

Burleigh Bears 46 (W Wanahi 2, L Burr, K Rowe, L Page, P Politoni, C Cullen tries; J Fogarty 9 goals) defeated Ipswich Jets 26 (M Purcell 2, W Conlon, L Capewell, H Lipp tries; H Lipp 2, W Conlon 1 goals)
