Intrust Super Cup Round 15 kicks off on the unfamiliar time of a Friday night this week, the QRL taking advantage of a Broncos free Friday. Should be a great game as ever, and is an important one for both sides on the fringe of Top 6.
Saturday’s TV game sees two teams on either side of the top 6 line, and should be decent viewing. Elsewhere Townsville play the Mackay Cutters, and Wynnum welcome the Falcons.
Sunday afternoon enthusiasts need not worry, as there are three good games to choose from. One is at Pizzey Park for the Bears v Falcons, and the other two are Brisbane based games Easts v Central Capras and Souths Logan v Redcliffe.
Help yourself to a quick preview of Intrust Super Cup Round 15.

FRIDAY 7pm – IPSWICH JETS v PNG HUNTERS
VIEW: Channel Nine @ 1pm
The Ipswich Jets have made one of the more anticipated match ups of the year that little bit more exciting by having it played under lights on a Friday night. Some of the best football I’ve seen has been at North Ipswich Reserve between these two sides, and Friday’s clash should be no difference, perhaps enhanced with both sides desperate for wins to stay in touch with the Top 6.
Both teams sit on 14 points, just 2 points from the Top 6, but their for and against is going against them at the moment. The PNG Hunters in fact are the second lowest scorers in the competition. The Hunters have won three of their last four, and are starting to look better each week with the return of a little more experience. Tries like Adex Wera’s from last weekend help to win games, and is worth a view on the QRL Highlights.
Ipswich have lost their last three since defeating Norths Devils, and are in danger of seeing their 2018 slipping away.

SATURDAY 1:10pm – TWEED HEADS SEAGULLS v NORTHS DEVILS
VIEW: Channel Nine @ 1pm
Another match up of two teams on equal points and beside each other on the ladder. Both teams returned to winning ways last weekend, Tweed Heads getting home in the final minutes with a field goal over Central Capras, and Norths coming from behind to defeat Redcliffe. Tweed Heads have won seven of their last eight, but their third worst for and against doesn’t help their top 6 prospects if they can’t get past the sixth placed Devils this weekend
Interesting to see former Dolphins half Zach Strasser named in the Devils line up. Konrad Hurrell continues his adventure with the Seagulls in the centres.
