TOWNSVILLE BLACKHAWKS V NORTHS DEVILS
Saturday 11 July, 2015

Townsville Blackhawks 50 (Lenny Magey 2, Nathan Norford 2, Kyle Feldt, Mosese Pangai, Tom Humble, Samsen O’Neill, Noel Underwood tries; Kyle Feldt 5, Tom Humble 2 goals) def Norths Devils 6 (Michael Lucas try; Liam Tyson goal) at Jack Manski Oval.

It was a case of another weekend of footy, another big win for the red-hot Townsville Blackhawks who gave the vocal crowd at Jack Manski Oval plenty to cheer about with their 50-6 demolition of Norths Devils on Saturday. The round 18 Intrust Super Cup clash loomed as a danger game for the table-topping Blackhawks, who were without Cowboys-contracted players Ray Thompson, Robert Lui and Glenn Hall, who were all rested after playing NRL the weekend prior. But the trio’s absence failed to blunt the Blackhawks’ razor-sharp attack as the home side piled on nine tries to take their 2015 record to 15 wins and just two losses. Cowboys-aligned centre Kyle Feldt continued his strong scoring form with a try and five goals, while Kelepi Tanginoa and Zac Santo – who set Feldt up for his try - were also in the team. The Blackhawks’ next opponent is Easts Tigers at Tap Out Energy Stadium on Sunday, 19 July.

Saturday 11 July, 2015

Souths Logan Magpies 17 (Tim Brooks, Rhys Jacks, Travis Waddell tries; Jack Joass 2 goals; Travis Waddell field goal) def Northern Pride 8 (Brett Anderson, Justin Castellaro tries) at Tully Showgrounds.

Intrust Super Cup action came to the regions at the weekend with the Tully Showground playing host to a round 18 clash between the Souths Logan Magpies and the Cairns-based Northern Pride. But despite have the majority of the crowd support, the Pride were outenthused and outplayed by the 11th - placed Magpies, who secured their fifth win of the season. The Pride (nine wins, eight losses) – who had the services of Cowboys trio Hezron Murgha, Cameron King and Patrick Kaufusi – have slipped out of the top six to seventh and will need a strong last part of the season to secure a finals spot. Their round 19 match is against the Tweed Heads Seagulls at Piggabeen Sports Complex on Sunday, 19 July. 

MACKAY CUTTERS had a bye and will host the Burleigh Bears on Saturday, 18 July.
