It’s only a trial match, but the rivalry is always there when the Ben Campbell Building Group Seagulls take on Burleigh Bears at any level.
That will certainly be the case when the Seagulls take on the Bears in two trial matches at Pizzey Park on Saturday evening. The first ISC game kicks-off at 4.30pm, and the second at 6pm. Preceding those senior games are the Mal Meninga Cup at 1.30pm and the Colts at 3pm.
Intrust Super Cup head coach Ben Woolf was very happy with last weekend’s camp at Byron Bay and is looking forward to seeing how some squad members handle the top opposition the Bears will put up.
Both teams will be without their Titans players who will filter through the clubs during the NRL season and Tweed will be without recruits John Palavi and Christian Hazard who will play in the Titans’ trial match against Brisbane Broncos on the Sunshine Coast.
Coach Woolf spoke to Gulls TV during the week about pre-season preparations and this weekend’s trial (click below).
