McDonalds Seagulls Academy Wrap

In a split weekend of matches, our McDonald Seagulls Academy teams had some mixed performances.

On Saturday, our BMD Premiership team went down to Souths Logan Magpies after conceding a try in the final few minutes.

Shaniah Power was very impressive on her debut for the Seagulls with 2 tries, while perennial top performers Kim Hunt and Emily Bass also got on the scoresheet.

At the same time on Saturday, this time at Brisbane Tigers, our Harvey Norman U19s girls endured their first loss of the season. After sending 3-4 of their best players up to the BMD Premiership team, the U19s were faced with a tougher task than usual, and unfortunately couldn’t get past the Tigers.

Our Cyril Connell Challenge U16s kicked off Sunday’s matches at the Tigers. Their up-and-down season continued after a great win at home last week, going down 26-14 in the morning heat.

Up next were the Mal Meninga Cup U18s who hadn’t lost a game in 2023. Their dominance continued, leading 34-0 at half time and closing out the game, 46-18.

Our McDonalds Seagulls Academy teams will now get a bye after 5 games in a row, and then finish their seasons with a final game at Redcliffe Dolphins on Sunday 2 April.

Our U18s remain undefeated and equal top of the ladder, with finals football on the horizon. While our U19s are 3rd after the loss on Saturday, and our U16s are 12th.

The BMD Premiership team will play at Iona College on Saturday 25 March before the Hostplus Cup team as they look to get their season back on track.
