Two teams looking to stay in touch with the top 6 meet at North Ipswich reserve to open up the Intrust Super Cup Round 12
LAST TIME OUT
Wynnum Seagulls arrive in Ipswich to take on the Jets on the back of their first win since Round 3, and it was a good one over the struggling Burleigh Bears. It was also after the first byes of the season, as the PNG Hunters also won last weekend, it will be worth keeping an eye on teams after the bye as they become more regular as the season wears on.
Ipswich meanwhile, saw a winning run of four ended by the Hunters last weekend, and had they not made so many mistakes they may have even upset them. Down by 8 with enough minutes to go, they bombed a couple of good chances. PNG responded with two tries. Both sides need the win to stay in touch with the top 6.
After seeing Ipswich in action last week, their battle is holding onto the ball, if they are able to do that they will go a long way to defeating the Seagulls. After that the match up of the experience in the halves will be an interesting one. Wynnum hold the advantage here with Matt Seamark and Travis Burns.
PLAYER TO WATCH
Michael Purcell gets mentioned a lot as a player to watch, and with good reason, but he was a little quiet last weekend, so could break out this weekend.
There won’t be much in it as ever. Ipswich’s style is entertaining but high risk.
