The Northern Pride and Easts Tigers will head to Mareeba this weekend to play in their re-scheduled match from round 7 of the Intrust Super Cup.
Take a look at the stat-pack for this game from QRL statistician Brad Tallon:
· Round 16, 2014: Pride 44 def Easts 20 (Pride's equal highest score against Easts)
· Pride have won four of past five games against Easts
· Easts have won only one of seven games in Cairns (last year's major semi-final 29-16)
· Pride have not lost at Barlow this year (eight games)
· This is the 5th cup game in Mareeba. Cairns beat Souths and Gold Coast there in 1998 and Wynnum in 2000. Young Guns also beat Wests there in 2003.
· Pride have won seven in a row; Easts have won their past four away games.
· Both coaches have coached 40 games – Demetriou has won 31 lost nine, Ingebrigtsen has win 24, drawn one and lost 15. Demetriou is 3-1 head to head.
· This is the 50th Cup game: Eddie Tautali (all Easts Tigers)
· Queensland Residents/Cowboys/Storm changes have meant that Pride have named only nine, Easts only 10 of the teams that played three weeks ago for this match.
