Wynnum Manly Seagulls beat Central Queensland Capras 36-16 at Browne Park tonight, despite Capras having the home advantage.
The Seagulls made sure to get the two points after being unlucky not to have a win beside their name after they outscored the Falcons five tries to four in Round 1.
The Capras, after producing a big upset in the first round with a win on the road, only scored three tries to the Seagulls’ seven.
The try scorers for the Seagulls in the first half were Delouise Hoeter, the first to score in the 14th minute, followed by Mitchell Cronin in the 21st minute, and Jayden Berrell in the 27th.
Capras’ Chalice Atoi scored the home side’s only try in the first half, just seven minutes before half time; and James Hill was first to cross the line in the second half, at the 46th minute.
Seagulls’ Edene Gebbie crossed six minutes later, followed by Hoeter again; and then the Capras’ Luke George in the 61st minute.
Seagulls’ Edward Burns and Alex Barr both crossed before the full time hooter.
Capras’ Bessie Aufaga-Toomago converted two from three; and Seagulls’ Fetalaiga Pauga coverted four from seven.
Frustrations ran high for the Capras near the end of the game, with Matthew Wright being sin-binned with less than two minutes to go.
The Seagulls’ Matiu Love-Henry “led from the front with a dominant defensive performance” to be named Man of the Match.
