The weekend saw us travel north to take on the Mackay Cutters in what was a must win game.

While Mackay are sitting last on the table, we weren’t taking them lightly as they’ve been one of the form teams over the past 6 weeks and they’re always tough at home.

With halfback Sam Scarlett returning from injury, we looked back to our dangerous best and played some really good footy on the night to run out 40-22 winners, with Mackay getting 2 late tries to add some respectability to the score line.

With our victory and Easts losing, we’ve forced our way into the top 6 and with one round to go our destiny is now in our hands. The equation now is simple – win this coming weekend and we guarantee our place in the finals.

Our opponent this weekend is the Burleigh Bears. Burleigh are currently sitting second on the ladder so it’s going to be an enormous challenge but one I’m confident we’ll be up for. And should we be able to defeat a team of Burleigh’s quality, that will give us great momentum and confidence going into the finals.
