Petero Civoniceva will be the headline act in this highly-anticipated grand final re-match. The Queensland and Australian representative is excited about the prospect of playing his first premiership match with the club he last represented as a teenager in 1994. Civoniceva will have the honour of leading the Dolphins out onto the field in front of what is expected to be a capacity crowd at Wynnum’s BMD Kougari Oval. He is part of a monster forward pack that includes Broncos contracted players Nick Slyney and David Hala, along with experienced pair Isaak Ah Mau and Troy Giess. Throw in impressive recruits Jake Marketo and Fijian born Sarafu Fatiaki, and it’s not hard to see why the Dolphins are one of the early favourites for this year’s title. Not to be outdone, Wynnum have named a classy line up that includes young Broncos Jordan Kahu and Jake Granville. Skipper Luke Dalziel-Don is still recovering from knee surgery and hasn’t been named for the Channel 9 match-of-the-round. Graham Murray, a former NSW Origin coach, will be at the helm of the Seagulls for the first time. There will be no shortage of talking points after this game, and one of them will no doubt centre on who claims the inaugural XXXX Man-of the-Match award.
QRL Media tips: Redcliffe Dolphins by 6. The Gulls have the home ground advantage and the runs on the board after back-to-back titles, but the Phins look in great shape right across the park. Big Petero is the talk of the town, but keep an eye out for former Dragon Jake Marketo who could force his way into the Broncos NRL line-up at some stage this season.

Wynnum Manly Seagulls inspired for clash with Redcliffe after former NRL coach Graham Murray's heart attack

Wynnum Manly Seagulls coach Graham Murray is recovering in intensive care.



Wynnum Manly Seagulls CEO Scott Thornton says the players have taken the news of coach Graham Murray's heart attack ''pretty well'' as they prepare for their season opener against Redcliffe.

Thornton addressed the playing squad at training on Thursday night following http://www.couriermail.com.au/questnews/east/former-new-south-wales-and-nrl-coach-graham-murray-is-rushed-to-hospital-after-suspected-heart-attack/story-fn8m0sve-1226597471857 the shock news that 58-year-old Murray was recovering in intensive care
“They were obviously concerned for Graham and his family but they took it on board and it’s something they’ll probably use to put in that extra effort on Sunday,” he said.
“They’re definitely determined to do well after what has happened and they know how much effort Graham has put into the team and how much he is committed to the club.
“So they will definitely be prepared to go a little extra harder on Sunday.”
Thornton also said no person in particular would take charge of the team in Murray's absence, with the whole coaching staff to help run the team in their round one match against Redcliffe at BMD Kougari Oval.
Seagulls captain Luke Dalziel-Don, who is ruled out of the match with a knee injury, said the players were shocked at the news but were motivated to get the job done against rivals Redcliffe.
“Scotty (Thornton) spoke to us for a bit about Graham but he made it clear to us that we still have a job to do and that we need to rip in on Sunday which is what Muzza (Murray) would want,” he said.
“The mood around training was a bit sombre and quiet for a while but then the boys got into it which was good.
“We already have enough motivation for the game, so we can’t really use Muzza as motivation because you can’t get too emotional (or) your energy will get zapped from being so pumped.
“Scotty just made sure we prepare for this game like we would any other game and do the best job we can.”
Front-rower Tim Natusch is expected to captain the side in Dalziel-Don’s absence.

What was the crowd figure at Kougari today?

No good with numbers but a good size crowd without being the biggest I've seen in recent times.

Wynnum knew they were losing 2 starting props at the end of last season, and bought only one new prop who's now been picked up by Sth Syd. Surely they knew Dodds might play more Broncos. Odd recruiting strategy. Is there someone in the pipeline to come in at prop? 
XXXXCap

XXXXCap

This is their problem. They also lost the very promising Matt Smith to work commitments before the season started.

That makes their to four props from last year all missing - Carlaw, Gubb, Smith and Dodds. Throw in Daniel Smith as mentioned and it's a huge hole.

Thought the forwards didn't do a bad job yesterday after the initial onslaught, Tanu Wulf and Saia Makisi went better than I had expected.

Makisi and Wulf could be weapons running out wide but at the moment, they've got take alot of the hitups so their impact is nullified.

You blokes surely must have someone better then Moylan, he is awful.

Agreed. Could not believe it when the Storm signed him for 2012. Problem is Loxley is no better. Even having Barnes out of position at FB and Togia on the wing would be better. Oh that's right, Togia is a prop now :D.

Barnes to fullback. Moylan goes better on the wing where there is a touchline to keep him running vaguely straight. Loxley is completely shot, can't believe people were comparing him to David Seage early last season.

Moylan should have been in the chook pen. At least he could have propped up the bar tab instead of stealing it

Any truth in the rumour Wallace to red and green fowls if he keeps it up? I think his uncle ran the limewash marker at Kitchener Park. That qualifies him as a junior according to current parent club rules. Hunt to take over at parent club No. 6

Hat-Trick For Barnes As Wynnum Strike

Chris Chard (@Vic_Arious)


25/03/2013 10:08:46 AM http://www.qrl.com.au/default.aspx?s=article-display&id=70733&title=hat-trick-for-barnes-as-wynnum-strike


http://staticnrl.sportalhosting.com/site/_content/image/00037449-image.jpg

IN a sometimes spiteful encounter, the Wynnum Manly Seagulls managed to survive a late second half fight back from Tweed Heads to run out convincing 42-22 winners at Piggabeen Oval in their Intrust Super Cup clash yesterday afternoon.
Whilst the two sides have played out a number of memorable matches over recent years, Sunday’s Seagull derby threatened to be over as a contest by halftime with a try to Wynnum flyer Nat Barnes from a Tweed Heads mistake in just the third minute setting the tone for a lopsided opening stanza.
Barnes was joined on the try scorers list by a scheming Jake Granville and five-eighth Matt Grieve with a double on the back of some poor ball handling from the home side that saw the score blow out to 20-0, before a try from Tweed Heads co-captain James Wood on the stroke of halftime gave the locals some hope of a comeback.
These hopes appeared dashed not long after the break with Tweed junior Barnes crossing the stripe twice more against his former club, before a try in the 58th minute to Tweed winger Tom Merritt sparked an in-goal melee resulting in Wynnum captain Tim Natusch being placed in the sin-bin and the home team running in tries thanks to Beau Henry and another to Wood during his absence.
The game came alive in the final 15 in front of a vocal Piggabeen audience before a barging try from experienced Wynnum second-rower John Te Reo effectively sealed the match, with both sides crossing again in the final five minutes for a 42-22 result.
Despite his side’s slow start to the match, Tweed coach Aaron Zimmerle was reluctant to blame the Tweed’s physical round 1 encounter against local rivals Burleigh for their poor opening period, and instead lamented his side’s lack of ball control early on.
“We were five from 11 completion-wise in the first half, and on top of that gave away the first five penalties of the game” Zimmerle said after the match.
“When you give the defending premiers that much ball, it’s only a matter of time before they find a chink in your armour.”
Despite facing a daunting road-trip to Redcliffe in round 3, Zimmerle remained upbeat about his young side’s chances against the fancied Dolphins.
“We showed today in the second half that we can score as many points as any other side, but quite simply we need to possess the football early in the match so we’re not pre-fatigued from having to defend for long stretches.”
Tweed’s opponents Wynnum return to BMD Kougari Oval next Sunday to take on the improving Mackay Cutters at 2pm.

Highlights from Wynnum v Tweed game seem to indicate strangest game ever. Somehow Wynnum scored off Moylan and Te Reo grubbers which were both ordinary. Tweed's back three had more drops in them than Sean Loxley.

Did Matt Grieve really play 5/8 or is the writer assuming that because he wore No 6 as Fauid's replacement ? 
maddley

Right centre based off highlights. Has been exposed a few times in defence in trials and on Sunday though it seems. Think Norford hooker and Te Reo 5/8.

I was told that Te Reo was to be 5/8.

norford 5/8 and te-reo second row. granville played 70 at hooker. tweed dropped the ball almost every set in the first half. seamark did most of the kicking the whole game

Thanks for that.

See Norford is named at 5/8 again this week. Sam Makisi has been missing since the first game, assume he is injured.

Notice Mitchell Dodds not in the Broncos 18 this week.

Actually just came across something that indicates Dodds may be injured.

WYNNUM MANLY SEAGULLS v MACKAY CUTTERS
BMD Kougari Oval, Sunday, March 31 – 2pm
Referee: Nick Morel
Head to Head: Wynnum 5 Mackay 4
Twitter: #intrustsupercup #ISC #WYNvMC
With both sides carrying the momentum of strong wins into this game – the signs point to an intriguing match-up at BMD Kougari. Head-to-head, the clubs are surprisingly even, with Wynnum winning five games to Mackay’s four. However, the Seagulls have won the past four games played between the two sides. The Cutters’ plan to upset that pattern has been made more difficult after forward Tyson Martin accepted an early guilty plea for a Grade 2 dangerous throw and was suspended for three games. The Cutters have five new players in the side all up this week, with their strong Cowboys contingent not named – however they are still a chance to return after not being named in the NRL side. For the Seagulls, Peter Gubb will return to the side with Matt Grieve not named. Wynnum winger Nathanael Barnes scored a hat-trick against his former club the Tweed Heads Seagulls last week, bringing his career tally to 108 tries. While he is still third on the highest try scorers list for the competition, the tally leaders (Ryan Cullen - 112, Nick Parfitt - 113) are well within his grasp. Mackay’s Michael Comerford will play in his 50th Cup game on Sunday, with the centre having played all his games with the Cutters.
QRL Media tips: Wynnum Manly by 6. The Seagulls – buoyed by the support of the Chook Pen – will prove too strong at home for the Cutters who may take time for their team line-up to settle.

Premiers Shut Out Mackay Cutters

http://staticnrl.sportalhosting.com/site/_content/image/00038051-image.jpg

WYNNUM Manly skipper Luke Dalziel-Don made a successful return from off-season knee surgery in the Seagulls’ 36-10 win over the Mackay Cutters at BMD Kougari Oval yesterday.
“I pulled up fine,” Dalziel-Don said.
“I only played 35 minutes which was always the goal. I’ll just gradually sort of work into it.
“If I can get 40 or 50 (minutes) out next week, I’ll be pretty happy.”
Dalziel-Don paid tribute to his team’s gritty defensive effort, which restricted the Cutters to just two tries.
“We defended really well,” he said.
“They had some good players and strike power across the board but we handled them really well with our defence.”
Some of the “strike” players the two-time premiership-winning skipper was referring to were late Cowboys inclusions Anthony Mitchell and Ashton Sims.
Although they trailed 14-6 at half-time, the Cutters were right in contention for an important away victory.
But the Seagulls started swiftly in the second half, completing their first five sets to set the groundwork for a flurry of points.
Jake Granville, John TeReo and Tim Natusch led the way as the Seagulls notched their first win at home in 2013.
Classy hooker Granville scored one of the Seagulls’ seven tries to further press his claims for an NRL jersey.
“Jake is playing some really good footy,” Dalziel-Don said.
“He’s taken his game to the next level since his (pre-season) involvement with Broncos.”
The Seagulls will host the Ipswich Jets on Sunday, while the Cutters return home for a round four clash against the Easts Tigers.
WYNNUM MANLY SEAGULLS 36 (Nat Barnes 2, Jason Moon, Matt Seamark, Jake Granville, Tanu Wulf, John Te Reo tries; Matt Seamark 4 goals) def MACKAY CUTTERS 10 (Bureta Faraimo, Liam Taylor tries; Liam Taylor goal) at BMD Kougari Oval.
