Redcliffe jumped to second outright on the Intrust Super Cup ladder after continuing their excellent recent record over the Norths Devils with a big 44-24 win.
It was all about the first half for Redcliffe as they tunned the home side with a six tries to one performance, that saw tries to the returning Jack Ahearn, the eternally fired up Curtis Johnston, and doubles to Nick Slyney and Josh Beehag. The Devils first points came in the 32nd minute with a try to Haydan Lipp, but were still down 32-6 at half time.
Norths came out firing in the second half with two tries by the 45h minute making it a 14 point gap and plenty of time remaining to upset the Dolphins. A try in the 61st minute to Redcliffe’s Zach Strasser effectively killed the comeback, and each side finished off the game with one more try a piece.
Redcliffe now sit second but could now finish anywhere in the top 6, as is the competition of the finals teams, and will be confident of competing against all of them come September.

A local rivalry awaits at Bishop Park on Sunday as the Devils welcome the Redcliffe Dolphins.
Redcliffe had a fantastic win over the competition leaders PNG last weekend, and are right in the mix still for a top two position. They will be hard to beat again this weekend.
Norths sit comfortably above the bottom of the ladder, but a even further away from the top 6, and all that’s left to play for is winning for their coach who is leaving at the end of the season and beating their locals rivals. Something Norths haven’t managed for a while.
