Easts down Jets in Ipswich

Easts Tigers have extended their winning run to four games with a narrow 22-20 triumph over the Ipswich Jets.

Linc Port crossed for the first try of the afternoon just five minutes in and despite scores being level at half-time it was the visitors who finished the stronger of the two teams.

That win sees the Tigers move into third place on the Intrust Super Cup ladder, one spot behind fellow Storm feeder Club Sunshine Coast.

Curtis Scott showed plenty of promising signs on his return to the field at the weekend.

“It was a good hit out for him, his first one in five weeks, hopefully he can kick on from there,” Easts coach Scott Sipple said.

“You can tell he was just a little bit rusty but he is a classy kid with a big future. He just needed a blowout, which he got with a good 80 minutes.

“Curtis just needs to get more game time, string a few games together in a row and I’m sure bigger things will come for him.”

Easts now return home for a local derby against Wynnum-Manly Seagulls on Sunday.
