Two of the competition’s three bottom sides meet at Piggabeen for the Intrust Super Cup’s TV game for the weekend.
The Seagulls, who have lost 6 in a row since beating the Hunters in Port Moresby, need one win at minimum to get off the bottom of the intrust Super Cup ladder. A good start will be this weekend at home to the Northern Pride who aren’t in great form themselves, having only won once since Round 10.
A win will see Tweed and the Pride on the same amount of points, but the Pride have plenty of advantage with their far superior for and against. So whilst the TV game features teams at the bottom of the ladder there’s still plenty to play for.
Matthew Musumeci is a name to keep an eye on at the back, as the fullback has been quoted as a Billy Slater type player, and has been plucked from the local Cairns competition.
