Suspended Connors replaced by French mercenary

Ipswich will look to cover the suspension of quicksilver hooker Jayden Connors by shifting former Gold Coast Titan Kierran Moseley to dummy-half, and bringing Josh Seage on to the bench for today's must-win game against Easts Tigers.

In a match that will be televised from 1pm on Channel Nine and broadcast online via 9Now, Seage will mark his return from French club Albi Tigers by pulling on the Jets colours once more.

The powerhouse forward has been back training with the Jets for a month and was registered earlier in the season in anticipation of his return.

A product of the Swifts club in Ipswich, the 26-year-old was a member of the Jets' 2015 premiership side.

Connors was earlier this week suspended for a careless high tackle against the Townsville Blackhawks.

Easts will not have the services of Brodie Croft after he starred in a tense 29-28 win by the Melbourne Storm over the South Sydney Rabbitohs in Friday's NRL finals opener.

Sam Kasiano, who scored in last weekend's massive boilover against the Northern Pride, is also unavailable after playing eight minutes off the bench for the Storm.

However, Scott Drinkwater will be free to line up in the Tigers team after being overlooked this week by their parent club.

One of the most exciting players in the Intrust Super Cup (see his highlights here), Drinkwater was named at five-eighth earlier this week, despite playing as a fullback most often this season.

In the 6pm Livestreamed match between Redcliffe and Burleigh, the top two clubs will look to extend an intense and historic rivalry.

The teams faced off in the 2016 grand final, won by Burleigh, but this time the battle is on the Dolphins' home turf.

Burleigh will also be without suspended five-eighth Dylan Phythian, meaning NRL-experienced Jamie Dowling slots in at Number 6.
