Affiliate wrap: Fantastic Francis helps Tweed raise bat against defending premiers

A quick-fire second half double to Titans flyer Tony Francis helped Tweed to a dominant 50-12 thrashing of the Brisbane Tigers at Piggabeen Sports Complex on Saturday night.

Joining fellow winger Brayden McGrady in amassing an incredible seven-try haul between the duo, Francis' four-pointers in the 40th and 60th minutes was part of a big night out for the pending NRL debutant; also making 222 running metres, three line breaks, five tackle busts and three offloads in the solid showing.

In what was the Seagulls' third win of the season and bringing them into the top eight for the first time in 2024, the half-century performance was also aided by Gold Coasters Keano Kini, Tom Weaver, Oskar Bryant, Jacob Alick-Wiencke and Iszac Fa'asuamaleaui who also played their part throughout the Round 7 contest.

They'll next host Wynnum Manly in the 'flockbuster' at Piggabeen on Sunday.

The Jets enjoyed the week off with the bye, next to face the Northern Pride also on Sunday afternoon at North Ipswich Reserve.
