THE Sunshine Coast Sea Eagles scored a dramatic 22-12 win over the Ipswich Jets to register their first points of the Intrust Super Cup season.
The Coast led 10-6 at half-time after tries to electric fullback Hughie Stanley and powerful centre Maa Ruua.
The home team punished an ill-disciplined Jets outfit in the opening 40 minutes and was unlucky not to be ahead by more.
The Jets went into the game without skipper Keiron Lander and five other injured front-liners and their playing stocks took a further hit when centre Donald Malone was sent off for striking in the 25th minute.
