Round 13 Match Up: Taia v Riki

By Seagulls Media

Zeb Taia and Preston Riki are at opposite ends of their rugby league journeys, but their impact on the field for their respective sides can not be underestimated.

On one side you have the man who brings a wealth of experience under his belt, playing in both the NRL and UK Super League, winning the 2019 and 2020 championships with St Helens.

On the other is a young 21 year old debuting in the Intrust Super Cup in 2021, with his career just beginning.

Taia has formed a powerful combination with Seagulls halfback, Sam Scarlett and his strong average running meters has made the Cook Islander a dangerous weapon on the right edge.

Riki has scored four tries, holds a 94.7% tackle efficiency and has been a consistent performer for the Redcliffe Dolphins in his first Intrust Super Cup season.

Taia has the big runs, Riki the consistency and reliability. Round 13 will see these two men play a key role in Round 13 XXXX Rivalry Round at Dolphin Stadium this Saturday night.

Veteran hookers clash in Round 8

By Seagulls Media

The battle between two experienced dummy halves will play a key role in deciding this weekend’s matchup between the Seagulls and the Ipswich Jets.

Wynnum starting hooker Jayden Berrell will face off against the Jets Kierran Mosely. Mosely is in his fourth season with the Jets, having spent a number of years with the Panthers and Titans in the NRL.

Both players bring an experienced and diverse perspective having spent time time in elite programs and playing almost 100 Intrust Super Cup games each.

We took a look at how their stats line up ahead of Sunday’s clash in Toowoomba.

It’s almost a dead heat in terms of physical presence on the field, with both players also proving their durability and reliability playing in every game this season.

Both number 9s have found an opportunity to pick and choose their moments and attack from dummy half. However, Berrell has crossed the line 6 times and finds himself in strong try scoring form.

Mosely is one of the league leaders in overall tackles and his 92% efficiency and consistency on that side of the ball is impressive.

Berrell’s reputation as a hard-nosed defender is also evident in the numbers, and may prove to be an important barometer for the Gulls success.
