The Gurgler’s Look at R14 of the Queensland Intrust Super Cup

THIS WEEK’S INTRUST SUPER CUP PREVIEW BROUGHT TO YOU BY THIS WEEK’S QUEENSLAND CUP LEGEND – Phil Dennis

Round 14 is just like Round 1 of this season’s competition, except the games are reversed, and it gives all those a chance for revenge on an early season loss.

There’s also a full program of games to excite like Townsville’s visit to Redcliffe for a top O the table clash.

Where else would you rather be this weekend than at a local ground for some quality rugby league. And if you can’t make a game, keep in touch with The Gurgler and Nothing But League.

So here is our rundown of the games in brief, with plenty of bits and pieces for you to enjoy your weekend of Intrust Super Cup.
THIS WEEK’S GAMES in 25 WORDS OR LESS

Norths Devils v Ipswich Jets @ Bishop Park Kick Off – Saturday 4pm
Both sides season fast becoming disappointing – both have won four games, a draw and a bye see Norths higher for now.

Easts Tigers v Tweed Heads Seagulls @ Suzuki Stadium, Langlands Park Kick Off – Saturday 5pm
Tweed surprised the Tigers first up, and with a Top 5 to stay in touch with, surely won’t happen again.

Central Capras v Mackay Cutters @ Browne Park Kick Off – Saturday 6pm
Can former Cutters coach Kim Williams make it 2/2 against his former club?

PNG Hunters v Souths Logan Magpies @ National Football Stadium Kick Off – Sunday 6:30pm
Hopefully game will go ahead after recent troubles. This game last year outdrew all the NRL games.

Burleigh Bears v Wynnum Seagulls @ Pizzey Park Kick Off – Sunday 1:40pm
After five wins in a row after six losses in a row, will last weekend’s loss turn into more for the Seagulls. Burleigh have already done it once in 2016.

Redcliffe Dolphins v Townsville Blackhawks @ Dolphin Oval Kick Off – Sunday 2pm
Game of the weekend, Redcliffe are yet to beat Townsville, like a lot of sides. Their new Dolphin Oval is bringing great results – 3/3.

Northern Pride v Sunshine Coast Falcons @ Barlow Park Kick Off – Sunday 3pm
The battle for the last spot in the top 6 could hinge on this game at the end of the year.

 

The full preview is with our friends at Nothing But League. Catch up with it all here. We provided some of the thoughts.
