    Ezra’s exit opens door
    http://www.gcbulletin.com.au

    TWEED Heads Seagulls are on the lookout for a new development manager following Ezra Howe’s departure to the Gold Coast Titans.

    Howe was recently announced as the NRL club’s new head of recruitment, having gathered experience in past roles including with the Canberra Raiders.

    Howe is also the Junior Kiwis head coach and New Zealand senior team assistant coach. He will continue in those positions.

    The Seagulls are set to begin advertising for a replacement shortly.

    Tweed Heads Seagulls take lessons out of Souths Logan Intrust Super Cup pre-season trial
    https://www.goldcoastbulletin.com.au/

    TWEED Heads have emerged from a mixed opening night of Intrust Super Cup trials with a clear direction of where they need to improve to be finals competitors this season.

    As well as under-18 and under-20 fixtures, the Seagulls and Souths Logan squared off in an ISC doubleheader on Saturday night designed to showcase their entire playing lists.

    Tweed won the earlier ISC contest – unofficially the lower-end game – by 24-6 to give fans at Piggabeen Sports Complex reason to smile but they were outclassed in the later match when most of the bigger names rolled into action.

    The Magpies scored the first 16 points of the match before Tweed got on the board through impressive back Elijah Nicholas, who has converted from rugby union. That try did not swing the momentum for long though, with Souths Logan running away 26-6 winners.

    “The first game we were pretty happy with. The second game we were probably disappointed in some areas and we obviously lost on the scoreboard but some of the things that we weren’t doing well aren’t going to be too difficult to fix,” said Tweed assistant coach Darryl Fisher.

    “I think defensively there was probably just a little lack of recognition of how to manage the speed of the ruck, especially against a bigger side.

    “Some of them got it and some of them didn’t quite get it so if we can get everyone on the same page it will be pretty easy to change that.

    “And a lot of difficulties we were having were just choices by ourselves that led to errors. I think we had 10 sets where we probably failed to complete in the first three tackles so we were giving up a lot of possession to a big side and that just makes it tough.

    “It’s not too hard to change that.”

    Tweed have a camp in Byron Bay next weekend before facing Burleigh in a February 23 trial.

    Several players from the earlier game put forward cases for more opportunities, with Bayley Faull and Keb Vaetoe among those to impress Fisher.

    Fullback Jack Mackin, who is dual registered with Runaway Bay, had a mixed night under lights but Fisher is under no illusions about what he can bring to the club.

    “I coached against him in A-grade a couple of years ago and he gave me nightmares a few times then,” he said.

    First win just a sample for Gulls
    http://www,gcbulletin.com.au

    TWEED Seagulls treated their fans to a promising first showing this Intrust Super Cup season but the real test comes tomorrow.

    The Seagulls were done a favour in the 2019 fixture by getting to host Papua New Guinea before the Hunters’ all-new list had the chance to gel but Round 2 sees them take on Townsville, also at Piggabeen Sports Complex.

    Tweed have a shocking head-to-head record against the Blackhawks, who have been perennial frontrunners since joining the competition in 2015.

    If coach Ben Woolf’s side can push them tomorrow – or even beat them – it would truly show the Seagulls mean business this year.

    “They have always got a strong roster and a strong team and we haven’t had much success against them previously so it will be a real tough one,” Woolf said.

    Titans enforcer Keegan Hipgrave will return from a hamstring injury via Tweed, replacing Jaleel Seve.

    The Seagulls will be without stand-in co-captain John Palavi, however, after he copped a one-game suspension. Bailey Faull will take his place.

    Santo will be having nightmares of Hipgrave.

    Good to see more involvement from Latu before his cut head.

    The combination between Seiuli and Spry will only get better.

    Tweed pack a mighty punch
    http://www.gcbulletin.com.au

    BURLEIGH coach Jimmy Lenihan has declared Tweed have the Intrust Super Cup’s best forward pack right now as a high-quality local derby looms.

    The Seagulls are one of four undefeated teams after two rounds and are coming off an excellent 24-16 win over Townsville.

    Burleigh meanwhile bounced back from a first-up loss to thrash Ipswich 42-8 at their last start.

    “They are flying at the moment, Tweed. It will be a very, very tough, hard game,” Lenihan said of the 2pm kickoff tomorrow at Pizzey Park.

    “They have probably got the best forward pack on the market at the moment.

    “They are going well with (John) Palavi, Keegan Hipgrave, Leilani Latu and Kalani Going so they are certainly a big, mobile, aggressive pack.”

    Lenihan may be underselling his own big men though, with a starting pack to match any rival in the form of Luke Page, Pat Politoni, Jack Buchanan, Hayden Schwass, Jacob Hind and Sam Coster.

    The Bears mentor said his side were still refining their game; it’s a theme that has helped him reach his 10th year as an ISC coach, with a contract already in place for 2020 too.

    “The game is constantly evolving and the coaches are always smarter and cleverer so if you’re not changing what you are doing all of the time, you become predictable and people understand what you are doing,” Lenihan said.

    Titans 18th man Mitch Rein is at this stage expected to line up for Tweed, who will be missing the promoted Ryley Jacks.

    Utility Jack Cook has been named to play at halfback, with Luke Jurd on the bench as another playmaking option.

    For Seagulls coach Ben Woolf, it’s an exciting prospect to have a team that appears capable of contending for the play-offs.

    Across the past five years in charge at the Titans under-20s and then Tweed, Woolf has mainly led squads more in a development phase.

    “It’s only Round 2 obviously but they are showing good signs early,” he said.

    “A lot of those guys like Kalani Going, Kirk Murphy, Jack Cook and Shane Gillham, they have had 12 months’ experience and now they are going better so that’s the pleasing thing: As opposed to having recruited a new side, those guys have shown improvement.”

    Burleigh Bears v Tweed Heads Seagulls
    Pizzey Park on Sunday, March 23 – 2pm
    Head-to-Head: Burleigh 17 Tweed 13 Drawn 1
    Twitter: #intrustsupercup #BEARSvTHS
    Tipping % - via QRL Tipping: Bears 73% v Tweed 27%
    Livestream: Bears TV

    The Seagulls will be out to break their second noted losing streak in as many weeks when they take on Burleigh Bears in the Intrust Super Cup rivalry round clash at Pizzey Park.

    The Ben Woolf-coached Seagulls ended their seven-match losing run against Townsville at Piggabeen Sports Complex last Sunday in their first victory against the Blackhawks.

    The away side haven’t won against their arch-rivals since 2015, with the Bears winning the past six games between the two side, including the last three played at Pizzey Park.

    The Gulls will be without halfback Ryley Jacks, who has been called into the Titans line-up, with utility Jack Cook named at halfback.
    The Bears, who have won four of their past five home games, have a strong contingency of forwards that includes skipper Luke Page, Pat Politoni and current Titans Morgan Boyle and Jai Whitbread who present a strong challenge to the Gulls pack.

    DERBY DAY: Seagulls out to end its Burleigh losing streak
    https://www.tweeddailynews.com.au/

    RUGBY LEAGUE: Tweed goes into this Sunday's grudge match having lost their last six games against the Bears.

    The loss of Ryley Jacks who has been called up to the Gold Coast Titans will be a loss.

    But utility Jack Cook will fill the number seven jersey and brings with him plenty of experience.

    Mitch Rein, who played well in tough conditions last weekend, will again start in at hooker.

    Coach Ben Woolf said his side's tight defence, which has been the hallmark of their first two victories, will be pivotal if they are to take bragging rights this Sunday.

    "Our defence has been much better than last season with our missed tackles and line-breaks against us right down in the first two rounds,” Woolf said.

    "But we know the Bears are going to be a really tough contest for us.

    "They put 40 points on Ipswich last week and have a very experienced team, so we know what we're up against.

    Woolf said his side was expecting a physical game as it traditionally is against Burleigh.

    "It will be a really difficult task playing them at home this week and a step up from what we have played so far,” he said.

    "We are really looking forward to it and all the players are really keen for the local derby.

    "We are expecting a physical game and aiming to match them in this area.”

    Fill-in halfback Jack Cook has had the full support of his coach thrown behind him for the round three clash.

    Woolf said Jacks would be a loss to his side but his team is built to cope with players absent to play in the NRL.

    "Riley will be a big loss but that is part of the affiliate process,” he said.

    "We have prepared well through the pre season without him so are hoping it doesn't have too much impact on the team.”

    Kick-off for the Intrsut Super Cup match between Tweed and Burleigh will be 2pm AEST.
