Good luck the Jets this weekend against the Comets.
North Ipswich Reserve 5pm Saturday.
The Ipswich Jets will look to bounce back following their close loss to Tweed Heads last weekend when they take on the Comets at home. While the form guide may suggest that this is a match for the taking, the Jets know all too well that this is a danger game, particularly given the recent outstanding form of Central hooker Tevita Latu. Comets coach Wayne Barnett will know his team can ill afford to give the Jets the same head start they gave the Sunshine Coast last weekend, as Ipswich have the skill and experience to make them pay dearly for a poor showing early. The Jets are likely to make several late changes, with captain Keiron Lander one of several players carrying niggling injuries. The Comets have named an unchanged side, with new recruit Mathew Templeman again set to line up in the centres. Templeman – who travels up from Bundaberg to play – scored a try in his first game in Comets colours last weekend.
