Round 11 Sunday wrap: Devils down Jets to climb up the ladder

The ghost of Ipswich Jets past came back to haunt them at the North Ipswich Reserve today with three former unwanted Jets contributing to Norths Devils massive 50-16 win.

The Devils attack settled in to win four win a row and keep their momentum going in the 2024 Hostplus Cup season and it was led by once Jets Julian Christian, Gerome Burns and Kierran Moseley.

With new coach Ty Ingebrigtsen at the helm in his first match and having won just one of their past 32 games, it was always going to be hard work for the home side.

The Devils raced out to a 10-0 lead and their attack didn’t let up as they inflicted the Jets’ 15th straight loss at the North Ipswich Reserve.

Devils coach Dave Elliot was happy with the attack but their defence was what pleased him most.

“We have a number in defence that we don’t like the opposition to get past and the Jets stayed under that today so that’s pleasing,” Elliot said.

“We think our attack takes care of itself, when Moseley is bringing our forwards onto the ball and that creates space and time for Gerome.

“Burns is having a great year. He is very coachable and he’s responding to his off-season and playing the football his work deserves.

“We knew the Jets would show fight, a coach moving-on always brings about a response and the Jets were good in patches.

“It’s pleasing we were able to see that off and respond.”

The Devils have averaged 29 points a game in attack and they hit their average halfway through the second half when Sam Elliot kept the Devils machine rolling forward to lead 32-16.

Gerome Burns scored three tries and kicked seven goals.

“I worked really hard in the off-season and I put on weight, after the first two days I was gassed and wasn’t sure what I was even doing here at the Dolphins pre-season,” Burns said.

“The football I am playing now is because of that work and I just feel really physically and mentally good.”

The Devils hit the half century when Burns scored his third try and then added the extras to take his personally tally for the game to 26 points.

It was the 12th time in the past 50 games the Jets have had 50 put on them as they slumped to their ninth loss of the season.

Elsewhere today, the Cutters came from behind running in five second half tries to steal an impressive 40-26 victory over the Hunters in Mackay.

While in Chinchilla, Wynnum Manly held out the Clydesdales 40-32 for their sixth win to remain inside the competition’s top four.
