With the in-form Anthony Don selected to make his NRL debut with the Titans, classy young gun Tyler Chadburn returns to the Burleigh side at fullback for Saturday’s must-win game. Chadburn is an exceptionally talented player but Burleigh will miss the strike power of Grafton junior Don, the Bears’ best performer in the opening four rounds. Burleigh is yet to open its account this season after four narrow losses. However, there were signs last week that the Bears aren’t far away from making their presence felt in this competition. In contrast, things are ticking over nicely for the Wynnum Manly Seagulls, who notched their third-straight win last weekend to grab a share of the competition lead with the Northern Pride. Seagulls halfback Matt Seamark plays his 100th game for the club and is on target to break even more records and milestones this year. Last week he drew level with Marty Turner as the 10th highest point scorer in Cup history (658). Jason Moon has been named to return from injury for the Seagulls, who look set to again be without first-choice five-eighth Jacob Fauid (hamstring). Wynnum have won three of the past four games between these two sides, although Burleigh won last year at Pizzey Park. Wynnum forward Tim Natusch is contesting a Grade 1 Dangerous Contact charge tonight.

QRL Media tips: Burleigh Bears by 6. Along with Anthony Don, Burleigh may also lose Sam Irwin to the Titans, but the Bears still have enough firepower if they get it together over 80 minutes.

Burleigh Fans Singing In The Rain

Burleigh Bears win

IT was a long time coming, but the Burleigh Bears have broken through for a 24-22 win over the Wyunnum Manly Seagulls, their first win of the Intrust Super Cup season.

On a wet and miserable afternoon at Pizzey Park, the Bears had to fight back from a 16-4 deficit and only took the lead in the 76th minute when centre James Stuart scored out wide.

A sideline conversion from five-eighth Jordan Rankin sealed the win and had the Bears faithful literally singing on the sidelines.

“I’m delighted, especially for the players,” Bears coach Carl Briggs said after the game.

“The players have worked hard and we’ve never lost belief in what we’re doing, today we’ve done it for 80 minutes.

“One to 17 they’ve done everything I’ve wanted from them today so hopefully we can bounce off of this. We’ll enjoy it tonight, but then it’s back to training Tuesday.”

In an evenly matched first half the Seagulls managed to score three tries, all of which came as a result of the smart short-kicking game of halfback Matt Seamark.

The Bears weren’t far off the pace but they found themselves trailing by 16-4 heading into the break.

However they grabbed momentum on the stroke of halftime when a beautiful short ball by Todd Seymour hit a flying Tyron Haynes on a perfect line.

The try was converted and the Bears trailed by just six at halftime and had momentum on their side.

A try to Seymour in the 48th minute, his second of the match, levelled the scores and from there it was an intense arm wrestle.

A brilliantly executed kicking game from Seymour and Rankin, coupled with powerful charges by Mark Ioane, gave the Bears the upper hand and in the 76th they finally broke the deadlock and took the lead.

When most people were expecting the ball to shift towards the middle for a field goal attempt, Danny Kerr surprised everybody by going down the short side and linking up with skipper Darren Griffiths who threw the last pass for Stuart’s match winning try.

They had to survive a last minute scare as Wynnum scored on the bell, but Seamark’s after-the-siren conversion attempt from the sideline was unsuccessful and the Bears held on for their first win of the season.

Briggs said the early defensive efforts and Haynes’ try on the stroke of halftime gave his team the confidence they needed to produce a stirring second half.

“They’d scored three tries from kicks. They’d thrown a lot at us and not busted us so we got a lot of confidence from that,” he said.

“We did think that if we just got an equal share of possession we could turn it around.”

“Obviously it’s only one win. We’re not going to get too carried away but I do hope this is a breakthrough. We’ve beaten a very good football side in Wynnum so we’ll take a lot from this.”

In addition to the much needed two competition points the Bears also claimed the Adam Watene Trophy with the whole day dedicated to the memory of the former Bear and Seagull.

BURLEIGH BEARS 24 (Todd Seymour 2, James Stuart, Tyron Haynes tries; Jordan Rankin 4 goals) def WYNNUM MANLY SEAGULLS 22 (Peter Gubb 2, Matt Grieve, Nat Barnes tries; Matt Seamark 3 goals) at Pizzey Park.

BURLEIGH BEARS v SOUTHS LOGAN MAGPIES
Pizzey Park on Sunday, April 21 – 3pm
Referee: Nick Morel
Head to Head: Burleigh 18 Souths-Logan 9 Drawn 3
Twitter: #intrustsupercup #ISC #BEARSvSLM

The Bears finally broke through for their first win last weekend – securing a close 24-22 result over premiers Wynnum Manly. With the first win now under their belts – the Bears will be looking to build on their success and move off the bottom of the Intrust Super Cup ladder. However, they might find it easier said than done this weekend when they come up against the surprise packets of the season, South Logan. Despite missing arguably their most important player last week in Mat Pitman, the Magpies were too strong for the Ipswich Jets, recording a 20-14 win – their third of the season. Pitman returns from his one-week suspension for this match with Mark Appleton to make way for the Residents forward. For Burleigh – diminutive hooker Sam Irwin will return to the Bears via the bench, following his successful NRL debut with the Gold Coast Titans last weekend. Souths Logan have won only one of their past four games against Burleigh, however their last match was an 18-18 draw at Brandon Park where they scored four tries to three.

QRL Media tips: Burleigh Bears by 6. While the Magpies have been impressive with three wins – the Bears are building towards something and would love to win at home again.
