Souths Logan Magpies continued their progress in 2017 by holding off a second half charge from Wynnum Seagulls to move to fifth on the ladder temporarily.
The Magpies led 12-0 at half time after two tries in six minutes in the first half, and extended that lead further still seven minutes after half time with a second try to Luke Archer.
Wynnum finally got some points on the board in the 54th minute, and crossed another two times in the second half, but unfortunately Souths Logan had one more try in them as well keeping the Seagulls at arm’s length and grabbing the two competition points.
The loss probably spells the end of Wynnum’s chances for finals in 2017, but for the Magpies it has only just begun.
