A grade who beat Bears

Neil Cadigan

The Romano Group Seagulls A-grade side have inflicted Burleigh Bears’ first defeat of the season after a comprehensive performance at Piggabeen yesterday.

Darryl Fisher’s side controlled the ball extremely well to beat the competition leaders 18-8 and maintain third position.

Fisher conceded the Bears lost momentum with their halves Sam Grant and Keanu Te Kiri being forced off with injury, but the game was played at a high speed and both teams were out on their feet at the end.

“Apart from a period in the middle of the first half when we made three errors in a row, we completed our sets and applied to pressure and a good standard of football by both sides,” Fisher said.

“We have to be realistic; both their halves were hurt and it affected their rhythm, especially in the second half.

“But it was a quality game, with the speed the standard you like it to be and both sides fought really hard and were out on their feet at the end.”

The Bears scored in the second minute to put the Gulls on the back foot but they regathered in probably their most efficient effort of the season, with their kicking game and completions at season’s best.

And a key has been the return to the club of exciting utility back Josh Ralph, who has come back from the Newcastle Knights where he was signed after scoring a bagful of tries for the Titans after being called up in 2016. This was his second appearance with the team.

Ralph combined with Kobi Annand well and it was Ralph who put McCauley Dawson over in the first half.

Gold Coast rep Jack Cook scored from dummy half also in the first half before Kurt McDonald sealed the win when he ran off a nice Annand pass in the second half. Zac Bainbridge converted all of them.

From there, the Gulls continued to control play and come away with a victory few teams will achieve this season.

Tweed Heads 18 (McDonald, Cook, Dawson tries; Bainbridge 3 goals) def. Burleigh Heads 8 (Mafi, D Schwass tries).
