Tweed Heads hold off Ipswich Jets
Played in driving rain at Piggabeen Sports Complex, the Seagulls scored three tries to two in their hard-fought 18-8 victory over the Jets.
Coach Ben Anderson later told The Gold Coast Bulletin the game was his club’s best win of the season to date – and their defence was especially pleasing.
Both sides played good football, and the visiting Ipswich Jets would be happy with their performance in keeping up with the competition pace-setters.
However, the Seagulls defence on their own line during the first 25-minutes of the second half proved the difference in the final wash-up, with the Jets unable to crack their line.
The Jets will next host the Central Comets – while Tweed will spend the week preparing for another blockbuster clash, this time against Redcliffe at Dolphin Oval.
