Hastings Deering Colts Round 11 preview

The Souths Logan Magpies flew up and away from Round 10 of the Hastings Deering Colts with a come-from-behind win against the Norths Devils.

With the two points safely in their beaks, they will now turn their attention to the Western Clydesdales, with the two sides set to clash at Davies Park in Round 11.

The Magpies are now in the top eight and looking to creep up the ladder.

This time last year it was the Magpies all over the Clydesdales with a 64-8 win.

Against the Devils, the Magpies showed plenty of that historical black and white fight. Souths Logan were down 16-10 at half-time but Zane Lothian’s try just before the break brought the Magpies some momentum.

And then in the second half, Souths Logan found a way with four tries.

The Magpies still won’t be happy with their completion rate of 64 per cent or the fact they only had 48 per cent of the ball.

But their seven line breaks and strong kicking game will bring them joy.

When the Magpies look in the mirror, they will know that they had some discipline issues with nine penalties bringing them unstuck and two Magpies in the sin bin.

It was Jaxen Yow, the Magpies five-eighth, who brought plenty of wow factor with three line breaks and a vital try in the 65th minute, which got the Magpies back to 28-26 with 15 minutes to play.

Souths Logan Magpies coach Lincoln McLeod took the positives and the negatives in a truthful way.

“You have to be honest with them and yes, we came back, but it’s no good just focusing on the last minute and not the 79 before that,” McLeod said.

“We had two in the bin, we let them get out to 28-10 before we went back to the plan.

“Young players do that but we need to be better or we will be giving Toowoomba a win.

“I like the fight we showed and liked our attack but we have some things to fix too.

“That’s my focus this week.”

Elsewhere in Round 11, the sixth-placed Burleigh Bears will open the weekend's action hosting the seventh-placed Sunshine Coast Falcons, in what is expected to be a tight clash.

Meanwhile, competition leaders Brisbane Tigers will head to Cairns to meet the Northern Pride, who are still chasing their first win.

The Ipswich Jets will kick off Sunday's games with a clash against the Mackay Cutters.

And, in what is expected to be the most exciting match of the round, reigning premiers Townsville will go to Kayo Stadium to take on second-placed Redcliffe in a clash of two of the competition's heavyweights.

Norths and Tweed will close out the round when they meet on Sunday at Bishop Park. Central Queensland and Wynnum Manly will enjoy byes this weekend.
