There’s even a few games in different locations like Atherton for the big Cairns-Townsville rivalry of the Pride and Blackhawks, and at Suncorp Stadium as Broncos feeder clubs Norths and Souths Logan provide the pre match entertainment for their NRL club.
There’s something for everyone, so get into the quick preview of Intrust Super Cup Round 16.
Intrust Super Cup Round 16 PREVIEW
SATURDAY 1:10pm – IPSWICH JETS v EASTS TIGERS
The TV cameras will be at North Ipswich Reserve for what should be an entertaining game. Ipswich with their attacking skills, and try scoring machine prop Nat Neale, and the Tigers with their super talented side. Exciting to see Michael Purcell, Marmin Barba and Wes Conlon all in the Jets squad, as well as 2015 Grand Final hero Billy McConnachie. Easts also have an exciting backline headlined by the halves Walters and Croft, and Scott Drinkwater at the back. Plenty of points likely.
