BMD Premiership Round 2 Saturday wrap: 'Our goal was to grind'

Souths Logan Magpies beat Wynnum Manly Seagulls by two points in a gritty BMD Premiership Round 2 game at Logan Metro. 

It was close until the very end, with Wynnum Manly leading until the 67th minutes when winger Kalisi Longopoa crossed in the corner.

Magpies No.11 Jasmine Fogavini, who scored two tries during her side's 22-20 win, said "I think we did pretty well". 

"Our goal was to grind until the 69th minute, which is what the coach said before the game," Fogavini said.

"I think we did really good. In the beginning we were a bit nervous and they were just finding their way through our middles then at half-time, coach said we needed to fix that up and that's what we did."

Fogavini, who played her first season with Souths Logan last year, said it was "pretty awesome" to cross twice, but "it was credit to my half". 

"The goal was just to hit to front four until they started jamming in and then hit the back four," she said.

"I think everyone in our team played well. Usually it's our forwards but I think because it was a grinder of a game, everyone dug deep.

"Britto (hooker Brittany Breayley-Nati) was good. She's always working hard no matter how long she has been on the field. After every tackle, she'll just get up. She's really someone we look up to as a team. She just has a 'never-give-up' attitude, winning attitude.

"It was a tough game, especially in the heat. Defensively we knew it was going to be a hard game, but it was good to get that win."

Elsewhere, Burleigh Bears kept Central Queensland Capras scoreless to claim the two points in Round 2.
