Sharks, Titans Triumph at Rep Tournament!

The North Brisbane Sharks have claimed their second mixed Rep title with a emphatic 7-4 win over 2017 champions the Toowoomba Titans on Saturday.

Team manager, Clint Wicks was the sole survivor from the victorious 2012 Sharks’ side who took out the inaugural Representative Tournament at Wooloowin.

The final shaped as a battle of two undefeated sides as the star-studded Sharks side capitalised on some crucial errors to take an early lead.

Opportunities began to appear for both sides as fatigue crept into the game and thunder storms neared.

It was the Brisbane side that took a 4-1 lead into halftime.

The second half started much the same as the first, with a heavy dose of rucking and kicking into field possession.

A Toowoomba error in their own half swung the momentum towards the Sharks and they never looked back. The scoreline quickly blew out to 7-2 before a late flurry from the Titans was all in vain as time ran out.

Well done to the North Brisbane Sharks – 2018 Representative Tournament Mixed Champions!

The Toowoomba Titans mens side has gone back-to-back with a hard-fought 3-2 win over the South-West Brisbane Tigers.

A stunning 6-5 win in extra time in 2017 set the stage for a mouth-watering final between the two rivals.

It was the Tigers who struck early only to witness a Toowoomba hit-back just moments later.

Some strong defence and rucking up the middle third of the field tested the patience of both teams, in particular with last touch options.

In spite of a some end-to-end play and a handful of errors to end the half, it was the Tigers who took the lead with a controversial try on halftime.

The second half started much the same as the first with a clear ruck-first mentality.

The Titans capitalised on some quality field position and scored off a nifty grubber near the goal line. The game was flipped on its head moments later, as the Titans scooped up a loose ball and scooted 40-metres to score.

The score would remain unchanged for the final six minutes to see a Titans victory.

Well done to Toowoomba Titans – 2018 Representative Tournament Mens Champions!

Sportsmanship on show between our mixed 2 finalists.

In their first Kick It Touch tournament, Dodgers’ showcased some solid traditional touch footy skills, speed and savvy defence as they defeated 2017 champions Spartans in their opening pool match.

2017 runners up Beau Knows were their next victim with a classy and hard-fought 3-2 win in trying conditions.

Playing a man down, Dodgers would go on to draw against mixed finalists Kickaholics Anonymous 5-5 before falling to Misfits 5-2 in the final pool match.

The Spartans endured a similar fate, losing just one pool match to finish second on for and against.

Mens top try scorer and Spartans’ captain Ben scored five of this team’s 13 tries. Beau Knows’ Christian Kereszteny and Nek Set’s Shaun Wickham finished the day tied on 5 tries.

The mens grand final would be a repeat of this morning’s mens match between Dodgers and Spartans.

Some tough rucking and rock-solid defence ensured some fiery and gutsy play.

The opportunistic Dodgers capitalised on a multitude of errors by Spartans’ to secure a 2-1 victory.

Maroons Win 2018 Origin

The Queensland Maroons have secured their third-straight mixed State of Origin win with a hard-fought 9-4 victory over the Blues on Wednesday.

In a match built on sportsmanship and pure skill, it did not disappoint in greasy conditions.

A spirited second half comeback from the Blues highlighted by a length of the field effort from Chloe Storm who pounced on a loose ball to beat three would-be Maroons defenders.

Toowoomba’s own Beau Hess closed the gap to within one just minutes later, jumping on the ball in the in-goal after a nifty short grubber.

The momentum was short lived with a penalty try awarded to Dugongs’ Tim Mitchell, before Michael Bacon followed suit with a neat kick and score.

Player of the match Jayden Turnbull extended the lead to four after splitting from dummy half on Blues’ winger Ben Stevens to send Brayden Barrett over in the corner.

The match was put beyond doubt with Maroons captain Jess Sleep crossing for two points courtesy of a stylish in-and-away from Michael Bacon to draw the edge defence.

Beau Hess crossed for a late consolation try.

The mixed Origin match was billed as a fast-paced showdown between two hungry sides and in the opening minutes it lived up to expectation.

Some rock solid defence and quick rucking saw a stalemate over the opening quarter.

The deadlock was broken with a sharp grubber to Tim Mitchell. Just three minutes later, Troopers’ Michael Bacon jumped on a fortunate ricochet to extend the lead to 2-0.

In wet conditions, Joeys’ own Jayden Turnbull scooped up a long-range kick to slide over the line.

The Maroons would coast into the halftime break 4-0 following a pin-point kick from Spartans’ Ben Burstow.

Queensland Maroons
Tries: Tim Mitchell (2), Michael Bacon (2), Jayden Turnbull, Ben Burstow, Brayden, Jess.
Try Assists: Michael Bacon, Jayden Turnbull

New South Wales Blues
Tries: Beau Hess (2), Chloe Storm. 

A big thanks to our match sponsors, LIVIN, Arrivederci Pizzera, Power Station Co., Intercept Co and Share Story.

We look forward to a bigger and better 2019 State of Origin series!
