The week that was…

Endorphins are high after another great week at the Nest, due to the pronounced on field performances over the last couple of weeks.

This weekend we take on a massive challenge, traveling to Port Moresby to play the PNG Hunters at home on Sunday afternoon. Without George Fai and Joe Boyce who were both injured last round, it will certainly be tough, but I know the boys are looking forward to the challenge.

Round 14 marks another milestone for one of our juniors and favourite young players, Scott Doyle, who will play his 50th first grade game for the Magpies. Scott has had an outstanding season highlighted by his selection in the Queensland Residents team. Scotty’s 50 games for the Magpies is a great achievement for a fantastic young player and is a credit to the Magpie Family.

Great news also this week with the council giving the club a permit to operate a bi-monthly Friday night Food Festival, which will be a vibrant inclusion to the West End Calender. With food trucks, food stalls, movies in the park, activities on the green space for the kids, live music and more! Stay tuned, we will be posting the initial start date in the coming weeks.

QRL Report

The Souths Logan Magpies withstood some second half flair to record a 25-12 win over the Burleigh Bears at Davies Park yesterday.

The Bears scored three eye-catching tries in the second half, but after trailing 18-0 at the break, it was too much head-start to overcome.

Handling was the biggest issue for the Bears, as their low completion rate in the first half led to repeat sets on their line and mounting defensive pressure.

The Magpies took advantage of their opportunities and ran in three tries to set up a comfortable lead at the break.

Burleigh attacked well in patches, especially in the second half, but coach Jim Lenihan lamented his side’s struggle to hold the ball and build pressure.

“Whether it was forced or unforced, we just gave away too much possession, today,” he said.

“Plenty of times we didn’t have a choice in the matter, but then there were plenty of times where we did it to ourselves and would just drop it cold.

“If we held the ball better today, we’d give ourselves a real chance to beat a side that is probably a form side in the competition. It’s just frustrating how we find ways to lose at the moment.”

With co-captain Luke Page missing through injury, Matthew White had a massive game up front, hitting hard and running with gusto every carry.

The likes of Nathanial Peteru, Jesse Malcolm and Troy Leo impressed at various stages as well, but ultimately the Bears were their own worst enemy.

Souths got scoring underway in the eighth minute when Travis Waddell barged his way over from dummy half.

Scott Doyle showed plenty of strength to bump off a couple as he scored in the 19th minute, while Connor Toia straightened and sliced straight through to make it 18-0 in the 28th minute.

Burleigh hit back straight after halftime when Sami Sauiluma and Jamie Dowling combined to break the line in the 42nd minute.

The offload was deflected off Souths and Dallas Wells was on the spot to regather the ball and score Burleigh’s first of the day.

It was exactly what the Bears needed, but some errors soon after opened the door for Matt Minto to have a run from close range, taking the score out to 24-4.

Two pin-point kicks from Harry Siejka in the 57th and 64th minutes for Kurtis Rowe and Henare Wells respectively kept Burleigh in the hunt.

The first was a nice grubber in behind the defence, while the second was a beautiful chip kick which Wells ran onto to score.

Despite scoring those three tries in a relatively short period of time, the Bears were unable to put the Magpies under any real pressure due to an off day at the kicking tee.

The Bears missed all three conversion attempts and the margin remained at two converted tries.

Some heads-up play from Minto, who slotted an unexpected field goal in the 74th minute sealed the win for the home side.

Round 3 | Results

QRL Report

The PNG Hunters just managed to keep their unbeaten run against the Souths Logan Magpies intact yesterday with a close 22-20 win at Davies Park.

In a thrilling and evenly-contested match – the Magpies had the chance to level the scores after the fulltime siren with Scott Doyle lining up a conversion kick, only for it to be waved away.

The PNG side are now up 7-0 in the head-to-head; but this was a game were a draw would have been a fitting results given the effort of the two sides who scored four tries apiece.

The Hunters opened the scoring in the 13th minute with fullback Stargroth Amean stepping his way through defenders to post his side’s first try.

The opening came after the Hunters were able to put some continued early pressure on the Souths Magpies line.

The Magpies hit back when their fullback Jamayne Isaako was able to cross the line.

Both sides posted one more try each in the half, with the Hunters taking a 12-10 lead at halftime with co-captain Ase Boas slotting two from two conversion attempts in the first half.

The second half was another closely contented battle, within neither side able to break free of their opponent.

However, some rampaging runs from Willie Minoga (who coach Michael Marum has now fashioned into a powerful centre) proved decisive.

Difficult to tackle and possessing a deceptive speed for a large player, Minoga ran in the next to tries for the visitors to put them out to a 22-10 lead.

That proved to be just enough, despite the Magpies mounting their spirited comeback, with Cameron Booth scoring the key try in the right wing after taking a pin-point kick from half Matt Minto.

This weekend, the Magpies will have to put aside their disappointment when they travel to the Gold Coast to take on Burleigh, while the Hunters are back at home and will host Norths Devils.

PNG HUNTERS 22 (Willie Minoga 2, Stargroth Amean, Wawa Paul tries; Ase Boas 3 goals) def SOUTHS LOGAN MAGPIES 20 (Jamayne Isaako, Matthew Minto, Scott Doyle, Cameron Booth tries; Scott Doyle 2 goals) at Davies Park.

Souths Logan fly high over Falcons

By QRL Media

The Souths Logan Magpies upset the Falcons on the Sunshine Coast on Saturday, posting a 22-12 win.
Centre Scott Doyle got the ball rolling early for the visitors with a try in the opening three minutes – but it was a tighter affair from there, with no team able to get on the board again until the 30th minute, when Doyle struck again.
He also converted one of his tries, and slotted a penalty goal heading into the break, contributing to a 12-0 scoreline at halftime.
While the Magpies were out of the blocks early, the Falcons were their own worst enemy, with coach Craig Ingebrigtsen lamenting his side’s poor overall showing.
“That was the worst performance I’ve seen from a Sunshine Coast Falcons team in two years,” Ingebrigtsen told the Sunshine Coast Daily. (Read their full report at their website).
However, Storm hooker Jake Turpin, who shared the dummy half duties with Alex Bishop, was one bright spot in a beaten side, bagged a double of his own in the second half.
While his first pegged the scores back to 12-6 and gave the home side a sniff of a comeback, that idea was quickly diffused by a try against the run of play to Souths Logan winger Cameron Booth only moments later.
It was the first win for Magpies coach Jon Buchanan who took over the reins from Josh Hannay in the off-season.
Next weekend, the Falcons travel to Cairns to take on the Pride, while the Magpies will be at home at Davies Park and will host the PNG Hunters.

Incoming coach Souths Logan Magpies coach Jon Buchanan has made his mark at his new club, signing some key personnel for the 2017 season.

Headlined by the arrival of crafty half Matt Minto from the CQ Capras, Buchanan has also picked up some young talent from the National Youth Competition with Jordan Scott and Souths junior Simione Fatafehi (both Gold Coast Titans) joining the Magpies.

The side just missed out on a finals berth in the 2016 season and will be aiming high in 2017.

Where we finished in 2016: 7th

2017 coach: Jon Buchanan (replacing Josh Hannay)


A week after conceding 40 points against the PNG Hunters, the Souths Logan Magpies have turned the tables to put on a points scoring spree of their own.

The turnaround was witnessed by about 1500 country footy fans at Miriam Vale, as the Magpies tore through the Central Queensland Capras on their way to a convincing 48-12 Round 2 Intrust Super Cup victory.

Souths Logan got away to the best possible start with Herschel Gideon crossing for the opening try of the match in the ninth minute.

CQ hit back three minutes later, but that would prove to be the last time they would trouble the scorers again until late in the game as the Magpies took complete control.

Souths Logan went into the half-time break with a commanding 24-6 lead following further tries to Travis Wadell, Matt Trnka and Josh Damen.

The Capras were guilty of making some uncharacteristic mistakes at the back – and the Magpies were good enough to cash in – much to the delight of coach Josh Hannay.

Having disposed of the Burleigh Bears with a controlled second half performance last week, the Capras were eager for another strong finish in the final 40 minutes.

But their comeback prospects were almost immediately snuffed out when Scott Doyle strolled over for an easy try in the second half.

The Magpies went on with the job to notch an impressive victory, their first of the 2015 season.


“Overall it was a great team effort by the boys on the weekend. Despite the score line blowing out in the end, the initial 20 minutes was quite tight and on the back of a period where we completed 8 sets in a row, we were able to score 3 quick tries to skip away a bit just before half time and lead 24-6 going into the sheds.

No one player really stood out. It was genuinely a team effort and it was great to see us really kick away in the second half and not give CQ a sniff at any stage.

It was a victory that showed the potential we have as a footy team and one that will hopefully give us a bit of confidence heading into what is a tough period of footy coming up for us over the next 6 weeks” – Souths Coach Josh Hannay
