IPSWICH JETS v MACKAY CUTTERS
North Ipswich Reserve
Sunday, April 10 – 1.30pm (please note venue change)
The Jets received an unexpected boost this week, with their game against the Mackay Cutters switched to the North Ipswich Reserve due to the heavy state of the fields in rain-drenched Mackay. After a record-breaking two straight draws to start their season, Ipswich joined the winners circle last weekend with their victory over the Sunshine Coast. The Cutters however, endured a tough road trip to Piggabeen, where Tweed Heads scored a 46-20 win. Mackay finished the game with only two players on the bench but both Todd Seymour and Darren Griffiths have been named by coach Anthony Seibold. For the Jets, Luke Capewell has been called up to the Titans, with Marshall Chalk returning to the fullback role. Two-try star Luke Walker also retains his spot in the Jets line-up but former Cutter Donald Malone is unlikely to play due to a shoulder injury. This game will also be a milestone match for two Jets players, with Todd Riggs and Ian Lacey playing their 50th Queensland Cup games for Ipswich.
