IPSWICH JETS v NORTHERN PRIDE
North Ipswich Reserve on Saturday, April 20 – 3pm

Head to Head: Pride 8 Ipswich 4 Drawn 1
Twitter: #intrustsupercup #ISC #JETSvPRIDE

North Queensland Cowboys playmaker Ray Thompson will turn out for the Pride in his first Intrust Super Cup match of the year. His inclusion gives Pride coach Jason Demetriou even more options for the round six clash against Ipswich. Thompson has been named on the bench but that could change if hooker Scott Moore is ruled out with a shoulder problem. The prospect of Thompson combining with livewire halfback/hooker Sam Obst would be music to the ears of Pride fans. Obst, an off-season signing from English team the Keighley Cougars, has been in sparkling form for the competition pacesetters who thumped the Sunshine Coast 48-6 last Sunday. A sloppy Ipswich outfit were outplayed by Souths Logan last week, but the Jets do have a habit of getting themselves up for big games at home. With two wins from their opening five games, Saturday’s game is certainly shaping as a must-win for the Jets. Ipswich has only won two of the past nine matches against the Pride, although they did win their last encounter in Ipswich last year. They claimed that match 38-14, their biggest victory over the Pride, with Donald Malone, Sam Martin and Jarrod McInally all scoring doubles.

QRL Media tips: Northern Pride by 8. The Pride scored some breathtaking tries in their big win over the Sunshine Coast last week and look like the team to beat in the early rounds. Watch out for Sam Obst, who has already been labelled the ‘buy’ of the season in the Cairns media.

Low-flying Jets need to find consistency ahead of Pride game

THE Ipswich Jets have a week to lift their game in time for the competition leaders Northern Pride.

In that time they will have to find significant improvement to pose a threat, following their 20-14 loss to Souths Logan at Brandon Park on Saturday.

"Very disappointing," was how Jets co-coach Ben Walker described his team's performance.

"We can play a hell of a lot better than we did.

"We don't expect to lose any games but especially games against teams we expect to cover easily."

Souths Logan sit above the Jets on the Queensland Cup ladder with three wins and two losses, while the Jets have won two and lost three.

"They played very well," Walker said of the Magpies.

"As well as they could. But we didn't."

The Magpies led 14-0 at half-time, thanks to two runaway tries from dropped balls.

"When you're not on your game it can get away from you pretty quickly," Walker said.

"It did on the weekend."

The conditions then made any second-half comeback difficult, though the Jets did improve after the break.

"It was better but it needed to be," Walker said. "We played a lot better but in the raining, muddy and wet conditions it made it a tough ask to come back."

The Jets have struggled to put together back to back quality performances and Walker couldn't nominate any Jets players worthy of praise.

But he doesn't see the need to try and change anything, other than to get the team to stick to its game-plan.

"It's not about consistency," he said. "We want to be five and 0, not two and three.

"We know if we play to our ability and strengths we can win games.

"We know we're a lot better. "But if we get away from the rules of the team individually the whole system can break down."

Asked for the positives from the performance Walker pointed out they had still started the season better than last, at which point they had won just one game.

"We've improved," he said.

"I'm not concerned we've lost."

In the FOGS Cup, Ipswich beat Souths Logan 24-0 while in colts the Magpies beat the Jets 24-16.

Jets Bring Down Competition Leaders

THE injury-hit Ipswich Jets snapped a two match losing streak yesterday by claiming the high-profile scalp of Intrust Super Cup leaders the Northern Pride.

Ipswich finished the round six match with just one fit reserve on the bench, but somehow conjured enough energy to topple the Pride 22-20 in an engrossing tussle at the North Ipswich Reserve.

Talented Ipswich brothers Sam and Matt Parcell, along with captain Keiron Lander, were all forced from the field in the second half as the Jets’ stocks were stretched thin.

Sam’s injury was of the most concern for Jets medical staff, with the young utility likely to require knee surgery that will end his season.

However, the sound of the full-time siren and the spoils of a gritty victory put the cheer back on the faces of those involved in the Jets camp.

Ipswich did well to repel a surging Northern Pride outfit in an entertaining second half, which saw the visiting team hit the front 20-16 after 60 minutes.

The Pride had rocketed into the lead following quick-fire tries to Ricky Thorby and Davin Crampton and appeared on course for a fifth win of the season.

However, the Jets made the most of a golden attacking opportunity following a mistake from the Pride when Ian Lacey delivered a sweet pass to Kurtis Lingwoodock on the left edge.

Lingwoodock surged over the line and Donald Malone’s successful conversion put the Jets in front by two.

From that point on the Jets held firm to deny the Pride.

Cowboys playmaker Ray Thompson had some threatening touches for the Pride but it just didn’t quite click for Jason Demetriou’s team.

On occasions when it did come together, the Pride looked virtually unstoppable.

Their precision around the ruck led to the second-half tries from Thorby and Crampton.

Crampton also had a hand in the Pride’s first try of the second half, when his line break in the opening set of six put his team deep on the attack.

The ball was spread quickly to the right where speedy winger Wayne Ulugia finished the move with a neat piece of footwork close to the line.

Ethan Lowe missed the conversion, allowing the Jets to stay in front 10-8.

The Pride then lifted their intensity in defence and had the Jets on the back foot until they spread the ball to the right to finally get out of their own half.

A Dane Phillips bomb hit the ground and bounced towards Malone, who drew the last line of defence to set Sam Martin on his way to the try-line.

Malone’s successful conversion handed the Jets a vital eight point buffer.

Malone also played a significant role in the first half.

The former Cowboy and 2012 Queensland Residents representative gave the Jets a much needed lift on the stroke of half-time when he scored a stunning try that gave the home team a 10-4 lead at the break.

IPSWICH JETS 22 (Donald Malone, Sam Martin, Keiron Lander, Kurtis Lingwoodock tries; Donald Malone 3 goals) def NORTHERN PRIDE 20 (Wayne Ulugia, Ricky Thorby, Ethan Lowe, Davin Crampton tries; Ethan Lowe 2 goals) at North Ipswich Reserve.
