Allan hat-trick sees Magpies outgun Cutters

Timestamp

Try scoring was the order of the day as the Souths Logan Magpies outgunned the Mackay Cutters in a high-energy 42-30 win.

Young fullback Corey Allan stole the show early, producing a remarkable hat-trick after just 17 minutes.

Astonishingly though – they were not the opening tries of the match – with the visiting Cutters crossing two before that to race to an early lead.

The first came from fullback Lachlan Coote (who was a late omission from the NQ Cowboys) in just the second minute of play, while Mackay’s regular fullback this year Yamba Bowie was over just four minutes later.

Magpies hold on against Tigers

In what was a game of two halves, it was a standout play from young up-and-comer Thomas Flegler that dragged the Magpies back on track to record a hard-fought win against the Tigers.

The Tigers had all the momentum in the second half and had scored three tries to trail the home side 24-22 as a tense final quarter of the game played out.

However, a huge play from Flegler where he started the movement by producing a massive charge through the line before popping an offload – where the ensuing play saw the Magpies get a six-again call. The passes eventually saw the ball find its way back in his hands and he finished off the attacking raid by charging in under the posts to score.

Guy Hamilton’s 74th minute conversion – his fifth from five attempts – sealed the deal for the home side who bounced back well following last weekend’s disappointment at the hands of the Blackhawks.

Things should not have been that close however, given the dominance of the Magpies in the first half.

The experienced Phil Dennis was over in the fourth minute, with Scott Doyle, Marion Seve and Travis Waddell all over in the opening half hour of the game to reach 24 points in the first half.

The home side’s progression was only halted in the eighth minute with Cheyse Blair finding his way over the line in his second game back from injury, adding to his try from last weekend.

In the second half, the Tigers seemed to click into gear, with a number of their big ‘ins’ this week (minus Brodie Croft who was originally named on Tuesday) making their presence felt.

A sturdy contributor to the side all year, Brayden Torpy started the try scoring for the visitors in the 48th minute and was backed up soon after with electrifying efforts from fullback Scott Drinkwater and five-eighth Billy Walters.

However, the Magpies kept their heads and were rewarded when Flegler was able to put the result beyond doubt.

Souths Logan however were left concerned at the end of the game by what appeared to be a serious leg injury to Doyle. He left the field after landing awkwardly in the 76th minute and with no interchanges left, the Magpies to defend gamely to ensure the result. He was on crutches after the game and rugby league fans will be hoping the news is not as bad as first feared for the talented centre.

Next weekend, both the Magpies and the Tigers will have a bye for Round 10.

Match Report – MM State Final

 

Heart-stopper in Meninga Cup final

A heart-stopping end to the Mal Meninga Cup final has seen Souths Logan cling on for an 18-16 win over Norths at Bishop Park.

The Magpies came from 16-6 down to overtake the previously undefeated Devils with 23 minutes left on the clock, then hung on for dear life.

The silverware came right down to the final play of the game, not even decided until after the referee’s whistle.

Norths gave away a penalty for a late tackle on what should have been fulltime, leaving Souths Logan to take a penalty tap 40 metres out from their own line.

Star player David Fifita then carted the ball forward but was the victim of a one-on-one strip by Norths opposite Ethan Bullemor, who sprinted free and kicked the ball into open space.

It was then left to Souths Logan’s backs to desperately clean up, retrieving the bouncing ball and carrying it dead to seal the result.

Fullback Fanitesi Niu received the match ball from competition patron Mal Meninga as the player of the game, scoring two tries shortly after halftime to dig the Magpies out of a hole.

His second try was a pearler, starting with an outstretched catch of a wayward pass with his left hand only, then regaining his balance, stepping and weaving between a passage of defenders.

While strike weapon Fifita was well-contained, half Tanah Boyd also came into his own as the game progressed, showing no fear taking the ball to the line and creating space.

It was an arm wrestle fitting of such a grand occasion, displaying the wares of the best under 18 talent from across Queensland.

Norths had a willing forward pack that was led well by Bullemor, Jordan Riki, Nesta Watene and impact sub Tristan Powell.

For Souths Logan, it was unheralded lock Cruise Ten who stole the show, consistently making half-breaks and mopping up in defence in a whole-hearted display.

Norths grabbed the first two tries between impressive centre Jack Paterson and crafty hooker Ethan Le Blanc, before the Magpies notched their opening try through Ten.

A further try to Riki – strolling through four defenders on a big run-up – seemed to have the Devils sitting pretty and on track to end their unbeaten campaign in comfortable fashion.

Yet Souths Logan found a second wind in the stanza after halftime and, with half Boyd running more frequently and testing defenders back on the inside, they began to break the shackles.

After inching ahead by two points, the Magpies survived a final period where both teams had a handful of opportunities to swing the result.

Among those on the victorious side was towering prop Emosi Tuqiri, cousin of Maroons legend Lote Tuqiri, while Josh McGuire’s brother Zak and Joe Ofahengaue’s cousin Tevita both lines up for Norths.

Next Saturday at 11.20am Souths Logan will face the champion New South Wales Under 18 team, Penrith, at Redcliffe’s Dolphin Stadium in the national championship game.

Results // Round 8

Blackhawks and Magpies amid logjam

A logjam for third place on the Intrust Super Cup ladder has formed, after the Townsville Blackhawks clipped the wings of the Souths Logan Magpies with a 38-14 result.

Countering previous concerns about their inconsistent form, the Blackhawks jumped out to a 26-0 lead to assert their authority over the formerly high-flying Magpies.

The convincing win allows the Blackhawks to leapfrog Souths Logan on for-and-against.

Behind first-placed Burleigh and second-placed Norths there are now four teams tied on 10 competition points – Townsville (+84), Redcliffe (+66), Souths Logan (+55) and Ipswich (-11).

Townsville’s form has been noticeably more consistent in the past month than in March, backing up successive wins against Norths, Sunshine Coast and Tweed Heads.

Conversely, Souths Logan faltered after beating PNG in PNG the previous week, a stern test no matter the diminished fortunes of the Hunters in 2018.

Townsville scored first via well-travelled NRL talent Kalifa Faifai-Loa in the 11th minute, then followed with tries to Michael Carroll (18th min), Shaun Hudson (27th min), and Levi Dodd (35th min).

Dodd was in the thick of things throughout, backing up with his second try four minutes into the second stanza.

The Townsville centre ended the contest with an individual tally of 18 points, kicking four conversions and a penalty goal to boot.

Souths Logan made the score more respectable with a flurry in the second half that saw them draw closer to 26-14, before Townsville added a further two converted tries at the death.

Next week the Blackhawks face pacesetter Burleigh on Saturday at Jack Manski Oval, while Souths Logan has a derby with Easts Tigers on Sunday at Davies Park.

Full scoring details and final team lists are available at QRL Live.

TOWNSVILLE BLACKHAWKS 38 (Levi Dodd 2, Kalifa Faifai-Loa, Michael Carroll, Shaun Hudson, Cade Maloney, Krys Freeman tries; Levi Dodd 5 goals) def SOUTHS LOGAN MAGPIES 14 (George Fai, Benaiah Bowie, Sam Scarlett tries; Guy Hamilton goal) at Jack Manski Oval.
