The Time Is Now

By Hanan Laban

The twists and turns of the Intrust Super Cup have hit the ‘Gulls hard in 2018, however our destiny is still in our hands.

Following the second half revival against the Capras in Round 8, the Gulls have dropped their last two games against the PNG Hunters and Townsville Blackhawks.

Both were at full-strength and we had a chance to take the two points in each game however we just couldn’t close the game out.

Apart from the blowout loss to the Souths Logan Magpies, we have proven we have what it takes to go toe-to-toe with the competition’s best.

However we sit at three wins and seven losses.

The time is now for the Gulls to stand up and take this competition with both hands.

Despite the hard road so far, the players are united and resilient.

They have been training hard and are fighting for each other.

Patrick Carrigan has been outstanding in the middle of the park, leading the charge with strong carries and ferocious defence.

Mitch Cronin and Shaun Nona have been growing in confidence each week as the playmaking spine shows real promise.

This next month will determine our season and it is the Wynnum Manly way to rise up when the chips are down.

The Easts Tigers at home is an emotionally charged match up. Playing in front of a packed Chook Pen is an opportunity for a revival.

We need you there in big numbers Gulls fans – lets make BMD Kougari Oval a ‘Sea of Green’ so we can get the boys home!

The Seagulls take on the Easts Tigers at 3pm tomorrow at BMD Kougari Oval.

Gates open at 11am with Hastings Deering Colts and BRL A Grade matches to precede the main game.
