Falcons steamroll Jets in Ipswich
An 80-minute performance saw Sunshine Coast smash Ipswich Jets 34-4 on Saturday.
Despite having to take a near-three hour bus ride to get to the ground, the Falcons put in a dominant display that will give them a great deal of confidence for the remainder of the Intrust Super Cup season.
Some rock-solid defence was backed up by relentless attack that produced six tries to one.
Storm youngster Brandon Smith was again impressive, playing at both the hooker and lock position.
“Brandon played a bit of a dual from and did a good job,” Falcons coach Craig Ingebrigsten said.
“His energy for the team is really big, attention to detail was good and his effort on effort. He was always willing to carry the footy and his defensive work was really good as well.
“Brandon is going to be a fantastic player for the Storm long term.”
