Souths Logan’s representative forward Mat Pitman is in danger of being rubbed out of Saturday night’s round five clash against the Jets. Pitman’s fate rests with the judiciary, which will tonight hear his case at QRL headquarters. Pitman was charged with a Grade 2 Shoulder Charge following the Magpies’ big victory over the Sunshine Coast. The Jets received mixed news throughout the week, with skipper Keiron Lander cleared to play in his 50th match for the club after taking an early plea to a striking charge. His experience will be vital for a Jets side which will enter the match without stalwarts Ian Lacey and Brendon Marshall. Youngster Sam Parcell is set to replace Lacey at halfback but the Jets are yet to name a replacement for the injured Marshall (ribs). Ipswich came close to upsetting premiers Wynnum Manly in a bruising battle last weekend. The physical and grinding nature of that match could work against the Jets this week. But one advantage the Jets do have up their sleeve is the blossoming combination on the left side between Donald Malone and Nemani Valekapa.

QRL Media tips: Ipswich Jets by 4. The uncertainty surrounding the final make up of these teams makes it difficult to select a winner. But the fact that the Jets walked away with nothing to show from a fighting effort against Wynnum last week should ensure they are hungry to take the two points here.

Aggressive Magpies Bring Down Jets

SOUTHS Logan centre Josh Damen produced a classic ‘show-and-go’ that Johnathan Thurston would have been proud of as the Magpies outgunned the Ipswich Jets 20-14 in last night’s round five clash at Brandon Park.

Damen ran in two first half-tries on a heavy surface to set his team on course for a commanding 14-0 half-time lead.

After a physical opening, the Jets paid a high price for one too many dropped balls when Damen was on the spot to scoop up a loose ball and run 60m to score under the posts.

The Magpies kept the heat on the Jets with their fast-moving defensive line but the match really turned their way when crafty hooker Ben Cronin produced a fabulous 40/20 kick.

From the ensuing set of six, the Magpies threw the ball wide to Damen, who stood up rival centre Donald Malone with a clever dummy.

Damen sizzled down the right flank before cutting back in-field to dive over for his second.

Nick Doyle’s second conversion, which was followed by a successful penalty kick before half-time, provided the Magpies with an advantage that would ultimately prove too big a hurdle for the Jets to overcome.

Ipswich lifted their intensity in the second half, with their big forwards – led by the impressive Jacob Ling – regularly carting the ball over the advantage line.

The visitors finally broke through in the 55th minute when a Dane Phillips cross kick was snapped up by Malone, who displayed a wonderful pair of hands to control the ball in the slippery conditions.

But just when the Jets were starting to get on top, they squandered an ideal opportunity to go further on the attack when they failed to put the ball into touch from a penalty kick.

Souths Logan then forced a repeat set and when Cronin darted out of dummy half and found Mark Appleton who barged over, the match was all but over.

The Jets did well to score late tries through Nemani Valekapa and Sam Martin, but they left their run too late for the second week in a row.

The win was the Magpies’ third from five starts and their season is only looking up with representative forward Mat Pitman to return from suspension next weekend against the Burleigh Bears.

Ipswich will play the Northern Pride at the North Ipswich Reserve on Saturday.

In-Form Magpies Swoop On Bears

A bruised Burleigh Bears outfitted has been thumped 30-4 by the Souths Logan Magpies at Pizzey Park.

One week ago the Bears were celebrating victory over the defending premiers, this week they were given a football lesson by the team that finished with the wooden spoon in 2012.

“Full credit to Souths, they came in with the right attitude and a game plan which they executed for 80 minutes. They got what they deserved and we got what we did,” Bears coach Carl Briggs said.

“At the moment this is going to sting and it’s going to hurt and so it should. To put out that performance a week after the performance we produced against Wynnum is unacceptable for this club.”

Compounding the result on the scoreboard were the losses of centre James Stuart, fullback Jamie Dowling and backrower Darren Griffiths.

All three left the field during the second half and didn’t return for the rest of the afternoon.

There were passages through the game where Burleigh were close to getting themselves back into the match.

They forced a number of goal line dropouts and spent plenty of time attacking the Souths line, but the final pass just wouldn’t stick.

Effort was there but a combination of errors and some outstanding goal line defence from the Magpies continued to frustrate the home side who only broke through for a consolation try in the 74th minute.

Souths wingers Dallas Anderson and Luke Archer both picked up doubles as the Magpies fired on all cylinders and continued their impressive early season form.

For the Bears it was their fifth loss in six starts and they remain anchored to the bottom of the Intrust Super Cup ladder ahead of a round seven clash with the Easts Tigers.

It is too early to know whether Burleigh’s trio of injured players will be available for the trip up to Langlands Park next Sunday.

“We’ll assess them tomorrow and see where we go from there,” Briggs said.

“We’ve got to come back together on Tuesday and we’ll go through it. We know where we lost it today and we’ll review it, regroup and then front up next week.”

Souths Logan’s impressive win moves the Magpies into share of the competition lead alongside the Northern Pride, Wynnum Manly, Mackay Cutters and Tweed Heads Seagulls.

All five clubs sit on eight competition points.

Mark Beaumont’s team was yesterday boosted by the return of Mat Pitman from suspension and the inclusion of former Raider Travis Waddell.

Magpies fan can now look forward to a bumper clash against the Redcliffe Dolphins at Davies Park on Sunday.
