Seagulls Aim To Get Back On The Winner’s List

This weekend the BMD Wynnum Manly Seagulls make the trip up north to Sarina for ‘Activate Queensland’ Country Week.

With games played rurally across the competition, including Thursday Island, the Seagulls will be hoping for a repeat of their last trip to the Mackay region where they beat the Cutters 28-10 in torrential rain.

Both sides will be gunning for a victory after suffering upset losses last weekend, with the Seagulls going down to Pride and the Cutters losing to the Jets.

The Gulls in particular are hoping to maintain their momentum as they head into the finals, knowing that when their best football is played, they belong in the top few teams in the competition.

For the Cutters, a win could see them jump into the top 8 in a jam-packed middle section of the ladder.

The Seagulls are boosted by the return of Max Plath at five-eighth, while James Robinson moves into the starting side and Caius Faatili retains his spot in the 17 after debuting last week in Innisfail.
