After swooping into form last weekend to claim two wins, the Tweed Seagulls will be playing for a place in the Holcim Cup finals when they face off in a full game against West Brisbane Panthers in Round 5.
Led by an inspired performance from Tarryn Aiken and her halves partner Chelsea Baker; the Seagulls were too strong for both Easts Tigers and the Panthers in their Round 4 match-ups.
“Off the back of both of those games, their confidence will improve even more now going into this weekend’s game,” Tweed Seagulls coach Mike Castle told the club’s website.
“We’re still in with a shot at the finals – if Tigers can’t manage to take down top-of-the-table Burleigh or the Magpies in both their clashes this weekend, we will be sitting fourth on the table going into the finals.
“If we win both halves against Panthers, we’ll take their spot in third.”
The Panthers will be looking to bounce back this Saturday at Tugun after an unusually flat performance last weekend where they were held to a scoreless draw by the Tigers and pipped 10-6 by Tweed.
The Tigers too will be fighting hard for their chance to play on and feature in the finals; but face a tough challenge against Burleigh in their first half and Souths Logan in their second.
