Round 13 Hastings Deering Colts preview

Round 13 of the Hastings Deering Colts kicks off this weekend, with games taking place across the state.

Unfortunately, a late update to the draw has seen Western Clydesdales forfeit their match against Central Queensland Capras at Platz Oval in Clifton due to illness throughout the team.

The side will be hoping to be back on track for their game in Round 14 game on Sunday, August 7 against Sunshine Coast Falcons.

The round will now kick off this weekend with the Sunshine Coast Falcons hosting Tweed Seagulls, with many other key match ups to look forward to.

The Sunshine Coast had a one-point win over the Capras last weekend and may consider themselves lucky to have gotten away with it.

The Falcons allowed the Capras 32 tackle breaks and missed 32 tackles, but kicked five goals to their opposition's three, which was enough.

Kaleb Sutton was a man possessed and made 227 metres and Danny Heenan made 38 tackles.

The Seagulls on the other hand would love a one-point win at the moment. Tweed missed 57 tackles in their loss to Redcliffe last weekend and just allowed the Dolphins too many chances.

However, Jotham Russell was a non-stop tryer and Brooklyn Stanley made 27 tackles.

Both the Northern Pride and Wynnum Manly Seagulls are at different ends of the happiness spectrum this season; Wynnum Manly are top of the table and just won 64-0 and the Pride just lost 72-12.

The Seagulls scored 11 tries to none and it’s hard to find fault with the performance. Carseen Huth made 244 metres and Cassius Cowley topped the tackle count with 26 for Wynnum Manly.

The Seagulls were close to perfect and Jack Bowyer added sprinkles to the ice cream booting 10 goals from 11 attempts.

The Pride were only down 18-12 at halftime last weekend and must have been positive, but that’s where it ended, with the Tigers scoring nine second half tries to secure the big win.

The Cutters would be full of confidence after a good win over the Norths Devils. last weekend.

Mackay started like they had somewhere to be and were up 18-0 at halftime.

The start was so impressive that it only required three second half tries to complete the win and give them good momentum heading into their game against Ipswich.

The Jets had won two games in a row, but against the Bears it all came crashing down, losing 40-18. Mitch Harsant was strong with 176 metres; the Jets captain is a delight to watch and has taken his Cup experience back to Colts.

In Round 12, the Dolphins had a good 40-12 win over Tweed Seagulls with Cody Hunter continuing his good form with a try and six from seven conversions. Hunter has 88 points now for the season.

Norths started badly and couldn’t get the momentum back at all against the Cutters. Down 18-0 at halftime, the Devils scored three tries in the last 20 minutes, but it was too little.

The Bears did everything they could against the Jets to have a great win, they scored in the first minute and kept the pressure on, scoring six follow-up tries.

Then, when it was time to defend, the Bears mauled the Jets with their enthusiasm and desire to put Ipswich on the ground.

The Bears had 39 tackle breaks and kept the Jets to just 10.

This week, the Bears face Townsville who claimed a 48-6 win over the Magpies last round.

The score was 30-0 at halftime and could have been a lot worse for the visitors. Jacob Mene made 220 metres of pure gold for the Blackhawks, while Jai Hansen made 32 tackles. Mene also made five line breaks and scored four tries.

Mene now has 18 for the season in more than one a game.

The Tigers were swift into the action against the Pride last weekend and came away with a 72-12 win. They were only up by six at halftime so whatever coach Mark Gliddon said at the break, he should repeat this week.

Souths suffered a similar fate to the Pride against the Blackhawks and lost 48-6.

The Magpies had 44 per cent of the ball and just fell further away as the game went on.

One line break in a game won’t bring you much joy and missing 36 tackles will lead to heartache. They will be aiming to bounce back to their winning ways this weekend.
