Seagulls Aim to Take Down the Jets

The BMD Wynnum Manly Seagulls will head west to Ipswich tomorrow to take on the Jets.

The men from Ipswich will be spurred on by the recent retirement announcement of their workhorse captain Nathaniel Neale.

It will be an emotional match following the passing of Ipswich Jets player Michael Purcell, and Seagulls legend Paul Green, both within the past week.

Both men made a tremendous impact on their respective clubs and will be missed dearly.

Despite the Jets sitting in 13th position on the ladder, the Seagulls are expecting an inspired performance following such an emotional week.

The Jets have shown that they can compete with most teams in the competition on their day.

For the Seagulls, the only result that matters is a win after an up-and-down month of football.

After the loss to the Dolphins last week, the Gulls will need to win their last 3 games to ensure the security of a top 4 finish.

Playing out of North Ipswich Reserve, the Hastings Deering Colts kick off at 3pm, while Hostplus Cup kick off at 5pm.

The match will be streamed live on Qplus for anyone who can’t make it to Ipswich.
