Falcons renew finals chances
Sunshine Coast recorded a timely 26-12 win away to Norths Devils on Saturday which has renewed their chances of playing finals football.
The Falcons trailed 12-10 at half-time before putting in their best second half performance of the year.
On the back of an 83% completion rate, they piled on four consecutive tries in the second 40 minutes to record a runaway win.
Sunshine Coast now sit just one-point outside the Intrust Super Cup top six.
Storm had five players Tony Tumusa, Curtis Scott, Jake Turpin, Joe Stimson and Richie Kennar all play a big part in the win.
“Every Storm player on the weekend bought in and did a really good job for us,” Falcons coach Craig Ingebrigtsen said.
“I was really happy with them after the game, especially Curtis backing up Wednesday night where he had to play Origin Under-20s.
“Their effort and their understanding of our clubs predicament on the weekend when we had to win. They all bought into that which was great for us.”
The Falcons will enter the prime time for Queensland Cup Country Week when they take on Tweed Heads Seagulls at Gympie in the television game.
