The Tweed Heads Seagulls Intrust Super Cup team will take confidence into Saturday’s great opportunity to play on the big stage – against Central Queensland Capras as an NRL curtain-raiser at Cbus Super Stadium (5.45pm kick-off).

Even though they went down 24-18 after leading 18-0 after 11 minutes in driving rain against Wynnum Manly last Sunday, coach Aaron Zimmerle was encouraged by the improved performance and new combinations used for the first time.

That means there has been little change to the squad to take on the Capras who had their first win of the season, 12-10, against Burleigh Bears last weekend.

“I thought quite a few players stood up against Wynnum and we are certainly making progress,” Zimmerle said of his side.

“It’s a great opportunity for these guys to play in front of a good crowd at an NRL venue and what better setting if we can get our first win.”

Lindon McGrady, switched from fullback to five-eighth against Wynnum Manly, retains the spot as does cousin Brayden who combined well with him on the right wing.

Seagulls stalwart James Wood was brought into the side at North Stradbroke Island and scored a try, remains at left centre, as does Dane Clarke on the bench after also playing his first ISC game of the season.

Titans player Morgan Boyle has been chosen on an extended bench after suffering concussion in round one and should be fit to play. He will replace fellow Titan Kurt Bernard who has been suspended for one match for a shoulder charge last Sunday.
