Teams cash in with big wins
THE FOGS Cup competition will only see one game played this round – with the match between the Wynnum Manly Seagulls and Easts Tigers originally scheduled for Saturday and the Sunday match between Norths Devils and Souths Logan Magpies both being postponed until next month.
With the staging of the QRL State Divisional Carnival this weekend featuring a number of players from the FOGS competition; the decision was made to move the Saturday game to Thursday, July 3 and the Sunday game to Friday, July 4 (before the bye weekend).
There will still be one Sunday match played however, with the top of the table Redcliffe to host the Ipswich Jets who are searching for win number 5 of the season.
Last weekend, the Dolphins further consolidated their lead at the top with their strong 36-10 win over the Magpies. Brett Coutts crossed for a double, which moved him equal with Tiger Pio Seci on eight tries to top the leading try scorers ladder.
The Jets too were winners, with Luke Pollock also crossing twice his side’s 36-18 win. With a total of 4 tries and 26, Pollock now has 68 points to his name and is on top of the leading point scorers tally.
This weekend in the FOGS Colts Challenge competition; there will only be four games played, with both Norths and Souths sitting out with a bye.
On Saturday however, there will be plenty of action, with the Jets hosting top-of-the-table Burleigh, Wynnum facing Easts at BMD Kougari and the Sunshine Coast at home to the Toowoomba Clydesdales.
Sunday will see two top five teams in the Redcliffe Dolphins and Tweed Heads Seagulls face off at Dolphin Oval, with both teams looking to push ahead to 22 competition points.
Last weekend, the Dolphins posted a dominant 46-10 victory over the Toowoomba Clydesdales, with Sam Leach scoring a double in the eight tries to two victory. Dwayne Duncan kicked seven goals to bring his season points tally to 110, putting him just behind Souths Logan’s Ben Jackson on 114.
The Seagulls however were on the receiving end of a 40-16 loss at the hands of the Sunshine Coast Falcons, with Sam Wright posting a hat-trick of tries.
The Wynnum Manly Seagulls – who will this weekend host the Easts Tigers – posted the biggest win of round 14, overpowering Ipswich with a 64-12 win. Joseph Burchell, William Brinson and James Tuia all scored doubles in the win.
