News from the FOGS competitions
It was a weekend that saw FOGS Colts spectators on the edge of their seats, with both the Ipswich Jets and the Easts Tigers slotting field goals in their respective games to each secure a win.
A desperate Ipswich side ran in five tries against the Tweed Heads Seagulls last weekend, with Welsh international Ollie Olds showing his depth of experience by kicking a field goal which brought the final score to 29-28 in favour of the Jets.
At Langlands Park the Redcliffe Dolphins Tom Opacic had a successful individual performance scoring all three of his sides tries, however with the score locked at 12 a piece it was the boot of Brayden Torpy that saw a successful field goal take the Tigers to a 13-12 victory.
Other Colts round 15 results saw the Burleigh Bears run away with a 25-16 win over the Sunshine Coast Sea Eagles and the Norths Devils proving too strong for the Souths Logan Magpies, winning 26-18 at Bishop Park.
Next weekend the Magpies will be looking to improve after last weekends loss and move off the bottom of the competition ladder, hoping for a win over the ninth-placed Tweed Seagulls.
After having the bye last week, the Toowoomba Clydesdales will travel to Ipswich to face the Jets and the Tigers are set to take on the top of the table Dolphins again.
The Sunshine Coast will be looking to return to their previous form when they meet Norths Devils at Stockland Park and the Wynnum Manly Seagulls play the Burleigh Bears at home.
In round 15 of the FOGS Cup, the fifth-placed Wynnum Manly Seagulls came out on top of competition leaders Easts Tigers, with Seagulls five-eighth AJ Nona locking the game away with a try and field goal- bringing the final score to 23-22.
At Dolphin Oval, a number of Redcliffe Dolphins players scored doubles against the Ipswich Jets with the home team winning 40-12.
The Norths Devils also achieved an impressive 46-14 score line against the Souths Logan Magpies at Bishop Park with Michael Lucas scoring a double for the Devils.
The next round of the FOGS Cup will see the Jets take on the Wynnum Manly Seagulls at home on Saturday while the Magpies and Devils back up in a rematch of last weekend.
The Easts Tigers will be hoping to secure two more competition points when they take on the Dolphins at Langlands Park.
