Details of the 2017 Intrust Super Cup draw
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.
The Tweed Heads Seagulls’ senior under-age teams have been beaten for the first time in 2017, both going down to Western Mustangs on a soggy Owen Park in driving rain at Southport.
The under-20s FOGS Colts Cup went down 20-16 after making a brave second half comeback from 14-0, while the Mal Meninga Cup (under-18s) paid for constant errors and were well beaten 34-18.
The Tweed Heads have suffered a heartbreaking 24-18 loss to Wynnum Manly in the battle of the Seagulls on a wet North Stradbroke Island – after leading 18-0 after just 11 minutes.
Tweed were made to pay dearly for crucial errors in the trying conditions and a near-miss by right winger Brayden McGrady who failed to ground a brilliant kick by his cousin Lindon McGrady over the line late in the first half as scoring opportunities diminished as conditions deteriorated.
Centre James Wood and back-rower Dane Clarke, both popular Tweed Heads Seagulls squad members, have been recalled to the team to play Wynnum Manly in the historic match on North Stradbroke Island today.
Gold Coast Titans prop Kurt Bernard and Titans' former under-10s utility back Brayden McGRady have also been brought into the 17.
During the season we will introduce you to some of the Gullies' senior squad.
First in our 'Getting to Know' series is utility back Talor Walters ... with a little help from his mate Jack Cook who was sitting (not so quietly) next to him.
