Round 7 Saturday wrap: Wynnum Manly, Magpies, Devils come up trumps

Souths Logan Magpies were victors in the much-anticipated BMD Premiership top-of-the-table clash with Mackay Cutters.

Cutters coach Marco Peters described the game in Townsville as "a real good ding dong battle all the way through", noting both sides performed extremely well - as they had done all season.

"It was a real tough game," Peters said.

"It was exactly what we thought was going to happen... it was going to take a full 70-minute effort to win."

Peters said he was pleased with how his side started and how they fought their way back into the contest after half-time, but a few crucial moments cost them the win.

"At the end of day, it was a pretty of good game of footy to watch," Peters said, adding he was impressed with how prop Lyresh Mara and fullback Jasmine Peters performed for the Cutters.

"The loss wasn't through a lack of effort or commitment... it was a real tough game where everyone had to put in. A couple of key moments mean you ice it or you don't."

Peters said the strong Magpies outfit was extremely impressive and he hoped his side got another crack at them in finals, which start next weekend.

"They played really well as a team... they were hard to break down... not one player stood out which is what you want from a team," Peters said.

"They're a really good outfit in attack and defence and they all do their jobs well.

"They battle well together and don't lose their cool... I think Steph Hancock helps there, really settles them.

"I'd love to have another shot at them. "

Norths Devils fullback Hayley Maddick and centre Shenae Ciesiolka both scored doubles in their side's win over Tweed Seagulls at Bishop Park.

Wynnum Manly Seagulls dominated Central Queensland Capras in the final round of the season to claim the two points, scoring nine tries to the Capras' three.
