The TV cameras head south to Piggabeen for the match between Tweed Heads and Redcliffe – two teams that bookend the Intrust Super Cup Round 12 ladder.
LAST TIME OUT
Tough gig for Tweed Heads to improve on their one win for the season with the visit of the all conquering Dolphins, but there have been signs that a second win may not be far away. They took an early lead against the Tigers last weekend, and have some NRL experience in the side in William Zillman and Eddy Pettybourne.
Redcliffe had a hard fought win over the Norths Devils last weekend. Coming back from a 6-4 half time deficit to prevail 22-12 with a 79th minute try sealing the win. Tyson Gamble, recently signed by the Wests Tigers, scored a hat trick.
With the forward pack the Dolphins have, they could steamroll a lot of teams in the Intrust Super Cup. So if the Seagulls can match the Dolphins pack then they may stand a chnce of getting a surprise result.
PLAYER TO WATCH
Curtis Johnson. One of the angriest men on a rugby league field gets his chance due to Redcliffe supplying players to the Broncos. Best appreciated live at the game, but he will no doubt be as involved as a winger could be.
Redcliffe have quality all over the park, and although they have lost a few to the Broncos for the ridiculous first week of Origin affected NRL matches (one being no less than Benji Marshall), they can call up Curtis Johnson, Josh Beehag and Zach Strasser to continue their winning ways on top of the Intrust Super Cup.
