    Default QCUP Round 17: TWEED HEADS vs BURLEIGH BEARS

    TWEED HEADS SEAGULLS v BURLEIGH BEARS
    Piggabeen Sports on Sunday, June 22 – 2pm

    Referee: Clayton Sharpe
    Head to Head: Tweed 12 Burleigh 11
    Twitter: #intrustsupercup #THSvBEARS

    A team on an eight-game winning streak in Tweed Heads will come face-to-face with a team in Burleigh that has scored 134 points in their past three wins. Add into the mix the fact it is a local derby – and you have all the ingredients for a classic. However, much was also expected of their XXXX Rivalry Round match earlier this year – but that time, the Seagulls were dominant, posting a 28-0 win. Given the good form the Bears have found in recent weeks; it’s unlikely this will be repeated. Burleigh have made one change to the side that undid the Sunshine Coast 60-6 (a score that included a club record six-try haul to fullback Henare Wells) last weekend, with Dimitri Pelo in to the centres for Jamie Anderson. Matt Beddow came off with a leg injury early in last week’s game, but has been named at hooker. For the Seagulls, their one change sees Chris Piper in for Ryan James. Fittingly for a derby, the head-to-head record is quite even, however, Tweed have won six of the past seven games between these two sides.

    ‘Dobbo’ says: Match of the round for me. Tweed were a touch lucky to win against the Jets while Burleigh ran up a cricket score. Battle of the south coast and sure to be as good as it gets. The Tweed have been the surprise packet of the year while the Bears have made a climb up the ladder under “Disco” Jimmy Lenihan. There are huge raps on the Burleigh five-eighth Conner Toia who has put plenty of structure and shape into the backline. Burleigh Bears by 16.

    Totally agree with Pete why this isn't played at CBUS on Sunday bewilders me, perfect marketing opportunity lost, the qcup game would draw more people to the match day and it could have been made a huge day, as
    Pete said opportunity lost once again

    Maybe we should always take "The Derby" to a home game. Make it a tradition.

    Why would our bosses want to admit that there is any rugby league on the Coast other than their titanic losers?

    I'm enjoying watching these teams more than the Titans at the moment. Both teams playing an attractive brand of football and some of our younger players are going really well

    Titans players set for friendly fire
    By Matt Harris & Tony Webeck
    NRL.com
    6:00am Sat 21st June, 2014


    Mate against mate will stretch beyond the Origin arena on Sunday when Titans team-mates face off in another fiery local derby between Tweed Heads and Burleigh in Round 17 of the Intrust Super Cup.

    Training alongside each other for the majority of the week 11 months of the year, players such as Kalifa Faifai Loa, Jamal Fogarty, Tom Kingston, Cody Nelson and Sam Irwin (Tweed Heads) will put friendships to one side for 80 minutes when they face the Burleigh contingent of Mark Ioane, Steve Michaels, Anthony Don, Matt Beddow and Siuatonga Likiliki.

    These two sides clashed in Round 10's Rivalry Round and on that occasion the high-flying Seagulls handed out a 28-0 drubbing against the Bears on their home turf at Pizzey Park.

    In somewhat of a rivalry round redux, Sunday's match between the Seagulls and Bears is one of two matches featuring teams who enjoy a healthy and long-standing competiveness. The other contest will see the Northern Pride host the Central Queensland Capras at Barlow Park in Cairns.

    However, based on their current positions on the ladder, the Gold Coast clash is where the real fireworks will take place as a string of Titans-based players lock horns at Piggabeen Sports Complex.

    For fringe Gold Coast Titan and Burleigh prop Mark Ioane, who has played a total of 10 NRL games, the Gold Coast derby offers a chance to ignite intra-club hostilities and provide a competitive platform to help players leap back into the NRL arena.

    Adding extra spice to the clash is that Tweed Heads are currently on an eight-match winning streak, while Burleigh has won three-straight and have scored 110 points in their past two matches, which has New Zealand-born Ioane excited at the prospect of an enthralling game on Sunday afternoon.

    "We all look forward to it. I've only been here two years but the feedback from the boys that have been here for a while is that Burleigh and Tweed is a big game," Ioane told NRL.com.

    "We're excited. We're not team-mates when we're on the field, we're enemies. We get into each other and stuff. We were just talking about it at training that we were going to give it to each other so that's only normal."

    Burleigh and Tweed usually only meet twice a season, but according to Ioane, some of his Titans team-mates treat the match with an Origin-like intensity that throws NRL club loyalties aside in the days leading up to kick-off.

    "Probably Beau Henry [gets fired-up the most], but unfortunately he's not playing this weekend for Tweed, he's out injured," he said.

    "Kalifa [Faifai Loa] is one of the ones that has been giving it to us at training. Sammy Irwin is a more quiet, laidback guy so he doesn't say too much and Tommy Kingston, who is doing real well for them, he doesn't say too much either – he's just waiting for the game I guess.

    "[The Tweed boys] keep giving it to us that they've won eight in a row at training, we just keep hearing about it every day, we never hear the end of it."

    One disappointing aspect of Sunday's anticipated derby is the 2pm kick-off time, which clashes with the Titans' Round 15 NRL match against the Dragons at Robina, although Ioane is still expecting a frosty reception from the vocal Tweed Heads crowd.

    "We know that the majority of the crowd will go and support the Titans, but we'll do our job and hopefully we can get a few out there to support us," he said.

    "We know that we've got a few loyal fans there that are always at our games that will be there."

    The remaining matches to conclude Round 17 see Wynnum Manly Seagulls travel up the Bruce Highway to take on the bottom-placed Sunshine Coast Falcons. Currently on a Queensland Rugby League record of 34 straight defeats, the Falcons copped a 60-6 hiding by the Bears last weekend, but always perform above expectation at their Stockland Stadium home which was evident in their heartbreaking 15-14 loss to the Pride a fortnight ago.

    Ipswich Jets hosts the Norths Devils and will be looking to bounce back from three consecutive defeats which have them in danger of slipping outside the top five. The Devils, currently in eighth spot, also have an incentive to reverse their recent fortunes, coming off a 40-point hiding against Wynnum Manly.

    Easts Tigers make the daunting trip to Papua New Guinea to take on the Hunters and if they can reverse their toothless display in last weekend's 44-20 loss to the Pride, they will leapfrog PNG on the table and move back into finals contention.

    The final match of Round 17 is the Channel Nine game on Sunday featuring Souths Logan Magpies and Redcliffe Dolphins. Only one point separates these sides on the ISC ladder and a win is a must for both teams as they look to stay within striking distance of the top five with only six points currently separating second place from 10th.

    Titans should be the curtain raiser to Burleigh vs Tweed Heads.

    Weekend Review
    Kevin Braysher


    They are arguably the form teams of the competition at the moment, but nothing could separate the I Love Coffee Burleigh Bears and the Tweed Seagulls in a 16-16 draw at Piggabeen on Sunday. The Bears trailed for almost the entire game before Khan Ahwang levelled the scores with a try and a sideline conversion in the 75th minute.
    Watching his side claw back a two-try deficit after losing halfback Ryley Jacks and second rower Louis Fanene earlier in the match left Bears coach Jimmy Lenihan very pleased. “We wanted to prove a point,” Lenihan said. “Last time we played (Tweed) they made us look pretty ordinary so it was a big effort for us. To lose two blokes early and finish with two guys on the bench, I thought we did really good.”
    Heavy rain poured for much of the contest and both clubs lost players to injury along the way, but the healthy crowd was treated to an entertaining game of rugby league regardless.
    Tweed opened the scoring through prop Pele Peletelese in the sixth minute. Peletelese and front row partner Reg Saunders were the stand outs as the Seagulls took the early momentum.
    The Bears had to score first after the break to stay in the contest and they did it when Conner Toia sliced through the defence to set up Ahwang’s first try in the 48th minute. From there the Bears had the majority of the field position, while Tweed’s chances were limited but for a penalty goal in the 60th minute.
    Ahwang’s sideline conversion in driving rain made him the hero of the day, but it was makeshift hooker Dimitri Pelo who won the most praise from the coach for his performance.
    "I thought Dimitri Pelo was probably our best player today,” Lenihan said. “He came in late to play hooker and played 80 minutes for us in the middle which is a hard thing to do in a game like today."
    Seagulls coach Aaron Zimmerle admitted his side was a little disappointed to walk away with a draw, but praised the way his men responded in the face of adversity. “The biggest thing I’ll take out of the game is how brave we were,” he said.
    “Sam Saville popped a shoulder in the first half and Ayden Lee had his nose all over his face. There’s two guys that had just gone on the field that had to be subbed out immediately and then I’ve got three blokes that I won’t name publically that are playing with pretty serious injuries but they’re just battling on and dealing with the pain.
