FOUR POINTERS FROM THE GAME
Wynnum will welcome an early win. After starting 2016 with a losing streak, the Seagulls will be pleased to open their account with two points. Although they recovered to finish 10th, the poor start cost any chance of finals.
David Mead is one sweet pick up for the Seagulls. The PNG international was probably not expecting his first game of the 2017 rugby league season to be at Davies Park and against Broncos teammates instead of alongside them, but Wayne Bennett’s decision to go with Moga against the Sharks has handed Mead a different reality for 2017 so far. A try in his first game is a good start, and with Bennett’s eye always on the Intrust Super Cup it may not be too long until he is back showcasing his talent in the NRL if he keeps scoring.
On the subject of Broncos teammates, one of them Joe Ofahenguae decided midweek not to play for the Ipswich Jets for whom he assigned by the Broncos, and chose instead to team up with fellow Broncos fringe players at Souths Logan Magpies. Whether he will play enough to make a difference is unknown, but it could make the Magpies clash with the Jets a little extra spicy.
A good return for Travis Burns. Another former NRL players who has decided to play in the Intrust Super Cup this season. Limited on the scoring sheets to conversions and a late field goal today, his experience will prove vital on the Seagull’s road to finals and redemption in 2017.
