Hastings Deering Colts Round 9 preview

The Wynnum Manly Seagulls Hasting Deering Colts team will be flying high all the way to Toowoomba on Saturday.

The Seagulls kicked down the door in Round 8, making a huge statement with a 56-6 win over Mackay Cutters.

Wynnum Manly are coming through nicely at the moment, having won five from seven games and having racked up some big scores along the way. But last week was a next level performance against the Cutters, who had been strong to start the season.

The Colts' win kickstarted a glorious 118-point romp between Wynnum Manly's Colts and Cup teams on their trip north to Mackay last weekend.

The Colts scored 11 tries which started in the seventh minute and didn’t end until the 11th try in the 66th minute.

In that time, Blake Anders scored four tries, jumping high for kicks and finishing off slick moves.The Wynnum Manly winger ended with 152 run metres, five tackle breaks and three line breaks.

Heavy lifter: Blake Anders

Anders now has eight tries for the Colts season, just behind Townsville's Jesse Yallop and Brisbane's Lachlan West who lead the competition on nine tries apiece.

Sefa Roache-Faimalo meanwhile made 156 metres and Harry Armstrong made 27 tackles. It was raining positives for the Seagulls.

The outside backs made ground with everyone making over 120 metres and the whole front row scored a try.

Continuing the long line of classy Wynnum Manly hookers - from Jake Granville,  Jayden Berrell and Tyson Smoothy - was Tyree Bowman, who was tidy in everything he did with 121 metres and five tackle breaks.

Wynnum Manly coach Daryl Short knows that things can get carried away in Colts and nothing can bring you back to ground quicker than a cold trip to Toowoomba on a Saturday morning.

When the Seagulls and Western Clydesdales last clashed it was all Wynnum at 64-0 and Toowoomba will be keen to turn that around on Saturday.

Elsewhere in Round 9, reigning premiers Townsville will host the Ipswich Jets from 2pm on Saturday.

The Redcliffe Dolphins - who were previously undefeated before last week's loss to the Brisbane Tigers - will look to get back in the winner's circle against Norths.

Mackay will play host to Tweed.

The Northern Pride will take on Central Queensland Capras, with boys teams still chasing their first win for the season.

And competition leaders Brisbane Tigers will take on the Sunshine Coast Falcons from 1pm on Sunday.
