Cup clubs name strong sides for weekend trials

A majority of Intrust Super Cup clubs will be in action this weekend with trials taking place across the state.

All but two clubs will take to the field, with 12 squads to get a much-needed hit-out in preparation for the opening round of the Intrust Super Cup which kicks off on March 20.

Each squad will have some new signings and NRL allocations in the side, with all players taking the opportunity to get to know each other's play before the competition begins.

This afternoon, it will be the battle of the seagulls at Bill Norris Oval in Beenleigh, with Wynnum Manly Seagulls facing off against Tweed Seagulls at 5pm.

Wynnum Manly have named a strong side, including Brisbane Broncos affiliate players Issac Luke and Keenan Palasia.

The full team list is on the Wynnum Manly Seagulls website.

Brisbane Tigers will play in their first trial in preparation for the 2021 season and will take on Burleigh Bears at Totally Workwear Stadium, Langlands Park.

The match will kick off at 6pm, with the Tigers naming a team full of talent to take on the reigning Intrust Super Cup premiers.

Burleigh have already have one game under their belts, defeating the Gold Coast Titans in a close game last Friday night.

At North Ipswich Reserve, the Jets host Souths Logan at 6pm and it will be a chance for fans to see new Magpies signing Karmichael Hunt back on the rugby league field. 

Souths Logan have named the former Queensland Maroon in the halves alongside Albert Kelly who has been training with the Brisbane Broncos.

Norths Devils will also have some Broncos playing with them tonight in their trial against Redcliffe Dolphins.

Kicking off at Bishop Park at 6pm, the Devils will welcome back Ethan Bullemor to the squad, while Rhys Kennedy and Reece Walsh - who starred as fullback for the Broncos in their trial against Wynnum Manly last weekend - are also expected to play.

Up north, Townsville Blackhawks and Northern Pride will face off at Jack Manski Oval at 6pm.

The Blackhawks have named a young side filled with plenty of talent, but will be counting on their more experienced names to show the way against their northern rivals. 

It will be a later kick off for Central Queensland Capras and Sunshine Coast Falcons at Marley Brown Oval, Gladstone.

Kick-off has been pushed back to 7.15pm, with details of the coaching clinic and curtain-raiser matches all available on the Capras Facebook page

Sunshine Coast Falcons fans can expect to see new signing Jarrod Mullen and PNG Kumuls representative Kurt Baptise take to the field.

Tonight, the home of the Redcliffe Dolphins will be hosting a sold-out trial match between Brisbane Broncos and North Queensland Cowboys, with kick off at Moreton Daily Stadium at 7pm.
