After a bye and another week off due to the COVID-19 lockdown, the stage was set for a huge game against the competition leaders Wynnum Manly Seagulls.
It was a big occasion with it being Old Boys’ Day and the rivalry with Wynnum. Supporters would have been surprised with the team playing in a black jersey to support Smart Pups.
The game was very entertaining, a high-scoring battle which saw the lead change hands on a few occasions.
With the NRL going into stage 4 protocols both teams were without their NRL affiliate players, making it a genuine reserve grade contest.
This meant we had a heap of team changes, with a few on debut, and Jayden Nikorima making his return to football after a long stint on the sidelines.
Jayden, pictured, delivered a Man of the Match performance scoring two tries and setting up one, helping us to victory.
Although it was huge win for our club, we still feel we have a heap to work on with some poor defensive lapses and transitions.
Round 14 sees us head to Quilpie for country week against Ipswich. The next three weeks is a very important block to set up our season. We now sit in tied fourth place and a win against Ipswich could see us move into outright third.
