Here’s a look at our four pointers from the Intrust Super Cup Round 2.
We missed this one
What a fantastic start to the season for Tweed Heads, we completely missed them in our pre-season calculations. Their win over the Blackhawks on Sunday may have been ugly in patches, however come September it won’t matter how you got the two points, only that you did. Key off season signing John Palavi is back this weekend but when you consider they have won two games and are still awaiting the return of the experienced Christian Hazard and captain Cheyne Whitelaw you have to conclude that big things are brewing down south.
One boom young forward, in only his second ISC, game broke his collarbone in his sides Round Two win. Originally diagnosed as a 4 to 6 week recovery period he has been named to play in Round Three and is considering ‘playing through.’ Whatever he decides, playing or rest and recovery, we wish him all the best.
The season may only be two rounds old but talk of player movements has already started, with one ISC captain deciding 2019 will be his last season. One of the nicest guys you would ever meet and having had a stellar career accross all levels of our game he has decided to focus on family in 2020.
Rivalry round is always spicy and there are plenty of intriguing games set. One particularly exciting game is traditional cross town rivals the top placed Easts Tigers taking on bottom placed Ipswich under lights on Saturday night. The northern derby between the Northern Pride and Townsville Blackhawks and the southern derby between the Bears and Tweed Head Seagulls will both be equally exciting. Wherever you are make sure you get out to a game this weekend, across the board they all promise to be crackers.
