Falcons continue to dominate the competition

The Sunshine Coast Falcons might be Bruce Banner during the week but on the weekend, they are turning into the Hulk.

You do not want them angry; the Falcons have now won 11 games in a row with the Ipswich Jets the latest victim of a rampage.

The Falcons inflicted the Jets' biggest home defeat since Townsville handed the Jets a 58-4 loss in 1998, beating the Jets 62-8 at North Ipswich Reserve this afternoon. 

The Jets had to deal with the loss of Josh Cleeland before kick off, with Jayden Connors coming into the No.6. 

The Jets were kicking themselves and the Falcons were kicking the ball to score tries; the first three tries for the Falcons came from kicks.

The Falcons were in when Nicho Hynes scored under the posts following a short kick and the Falcons were up 6-0.

Next on the kicking list was a cross-field bomb that found the Falcons' Nathanael McGavin in the Falcons' right hand corner.

The Jets answered back with Rogan Dean answering the last tackle kicking challenge and scooping up the ball to score down the Jets' right hand side.

The Jets seemed to be back in the game at 10-4 after 22 minutes.

The Jets, though, could not stop Harry Grant in the 23rd minute, when the in-form hooker grabbed the loose ball and ran away to score his sixth try this season.

The Jets did not help the cause when Billy McConnachie and Josh Seage earned a stay in the sin bin for 10 minutes.

Down to 11 men, the Jets could not hold the Falcons, with the top team  scoring two tries while the Jets were down men.

Chris Lewis followed Grant three minutes later; the Jets were too far spread trying to cover the overlap and the Falcons scored near the posts.

The pain was not over yet when Siti Moceidreke and winger Jon Reuben extended the Jets' misery, scoring before half time from the result of a grubber kick.

The Falcons led the Jets 32-4 at half time.

Any positive talk about rebuilding the score was destroyed with Grant scoring his second try, running from dummy half; seven minutes in, the Falcons led 38-4.

Reuben had his second try and his 10th try in nine games in 2019.

The Jets were compounding the beating with penalties and the Falcons were lapping it up, barging over near the posts with Darren Schonig on the end of a pass again and the Falcons raised their bat for 50.

Daniel Dole and Todd Murphy, who grubbed for himself, rounded out the pain with two tries in the last 15 minutes.

Rory Humphreys got the Jets their first try since the 20th minute off a Julian Christian kick.

But the Falcons enjoyed their day in Ipswich to the tune of 62-8.

The Falcons remain undefeated this season, having won 11 from 11 games. 

The Falcons face Burleigh Bears in Round 12.

The Jets will take on Mackay Cutters.
