Epic weekend on the cards for the Gulls

By Seagulls Media

One team is playing in a Grand Final and two teams are playing in Preliminary Finals – the only way to describe this weekend is EPIC.

The Seagulls have had an incredibly successful season on the field, with all four grades finishing in the Top 4.

Earlier in the season, the Auswide Bank Mal Meninga Cup U18s team finished runners up in the Grand Final.

This weekend, the BRL A-Grade are locked into their second consecutive In Safe Hands Cup Grand Final as they look to be the first side to secure multiple titles in the revised reserve grade format.

Ron Troutman’s men are full of momentum as they chase the chance to go ‘back to back’.

The Valleys Diehards stand in their way with the encounter kicking off Saturday at 3pm at Bishop Park. Watch the game on BRL Livestream here.

It has been an enormous year for the Seagulls football club across the grades.

In the Hastings Deering Colts, the U20s side has only the Mackay Cutters in their way before booking their third grand final in a five year period.

Coach Joe O’Callaghan will take confidence from the 20-14 victory over the Cutters earlier in the season and the strong win over the Burleigh Bears in week one of the Finals.

The game will kick off Saturday at 1pm at Jack Manski Oval in Townsville and you can watch the game via SeagullsTV.

Finally in the Intrust Super Cup, the last step in the road to Redcliffe for Adam Brideson’s men is the Townsville Blackhawks up north.

The Blackhawks and Gulls split the regular season fixtures one apiece however in the last game the Gulls were missing a number of players.

After the dramatic and emotional home win over the old foe Redcliffe Dolphins last weekend, the Gulls have found their finals momentum and bounce into Jack Manski Oval full of confidence.

The Intrust Super Cup Preliminary Final kicks off Saturday at 3pm – catch the game via SeagullsTV or join the Watch Party at the Wynnum Manly Leagues Club from 12.30pm.

If all results go the way of the Red and Green this weekend – then 2019 could be the most successful season in the history of the club.
