Statistically, it is set to be one of the bigger mismatches in the history of the Queensland Cup semi-finals. The Tweed Heads Seagulls equalled the highest ever points recorded in a season (41, equal with Toowoomba in 2001) on their way to the minor premiership, while Wynnum have made history for being the first team to make the semi finals having recorded more losses than wins in the regular season.

However, they say that finals football is a whole different ball game and prior form doesn?t count for much when the referee blows the whistle. Both teams will be looking for that maxim to ring true ? with the sides coming off final-round losses. Wynnum Manly perhaps have the most to worry about, having been outclassed 40-10 by an under strength Ipswich Jets ? while Tweed suffered their first loss of the season going down 16-10 to the Northern Pride.

Wynnum Manly have made a raft of changes for this do-or-die match, bringing in five players for the game. Tim Natusch will join Brisbane Broncos Dane Carlaw and Mitchell Dodds in the forwards, while Matt Grieve and Sam Te?o have been included in the backline. Charlie Gubb and Jon Grieve have been moved to the bench, with Chris Birch and Steve Darby the players to miss the semi-final.

Tweed Heads however, have only made the one change, with Will Matthews coming in at lock after playing the later stages of the season with the Gold Coast Titans. Selasi Berdie will start in the back-row, while Dean Murphy is the player to drop off the bench. In milestone news, it will be hooker John Te Reo?s 50th Queensland Cup game for Wynnum Manly and his 85th overall, having previously played for Toowoomba and Aspley. Join Mike Higgison and Troy Robbins for the preview and call on BayFM 100.3.
