It was a record-breaking win for the Sunshine Coast Falcons in round 14, defeating the Wynnum Manly Seagulls to claim the most consecutive wins at the start of an Intrust Super Cup season, while Easts Tigers secured a comfortable win over the Mackay Cutters.
Sunshine Coast Falcons d Wynnum Manly Seagulls 30-20
Sunshine Coast overcame a shaky start to fly past Wynnum just before halftime and they never looked back.
The undefeated Falcons started the match with two errors and the Seagulls took full advantage in the opening few minutes.
After Cooper Johns forced a repeat set, Harry Grant opted to run himself down a short blind-side and crossed for a try - locking up the scores at 10-10 with 10 minutes remaining in the first half.
A grubber kick that bobbled into the in-goal area was picked up by Falcons flyer Nat McGavin, who broke the defensive line to find Jon Reuben with 70 metres to run.
With no Seagulls in front of him, he unselfishly offloaded the ball to Nicho Hynes who scored under the posts to ensure the Falcons went into the break with a 16-10 lead.
The weight of possession started to swing the Falcons way after half time and so did momentum and the visiting side claimed the two points.
The 14th consecutive victory sees the Falcons surpass the previous 13-win record held by the Tweed Seagulls.
Easts Tigers d Mackay Cutters 22-10
Easts Tigers looked comfortable and in control as a first-half blitz paved the way for a win over a Mackay Cutters side that simply could not hit their stride.
Billy Walters sliced his way through some sloppy tackling on the left flank to give his side an eight-point buffer early in the game, with Easts running in another try on the very next set.
Tigers will face Norths Devils in round 15 after the bye week.
