Round 19 Feeder Wrap

The Sunshine Coast Falcons were without star hooker Harry Grant in round 19 but still powered to a huge win over the Central Queensland Capras at Sunshine Coast Stadium, while Easts Tigers went down to Wynnum Manly in an enthralling tussle at Langlands Park.

Sunshine Coast Falcons d CQ Capras 44-12

The home side set the tone early, scoring 18 points in the opening 17 minutes and the Capras trailed 18-6 at the 21 minute mark.

Both sides then traded possession and mistakes, with the two teams blowing several try-scoring opportunities due to handling errors.

The Falcons managed to regather their composure first, scoring back-to-back tries ahead of half time to take an imposing 30-6 lead into the break.

Despite lacking some intensity in the second half, the Falcons worked hard through the middle and through some impressive offloads extended their lead to 40-6.

In the dying stages of the match a Nicho Hynes cut out ball landed in the waiting arms of Nat McGavin for the Falcons' eighth and final try.

The Capras closed out the match with a consolation try on the siren to Aufaga-Toomaga, the only Capra to make it onto the scoreboard, converting his second try and taking the final score to 44-12.

The Falcons will face Mackay Cutters in round 20.

Wynnum Manly Seagulls d Easts Tigers 18-2

One of the Intrust Super Cups fiercest rivalries, Wynnum Manly Seagulls clashed with Easts Tigers at Langlands Park in front of a bumper crowd.

The enthralling match wasn't settled until the 70th minute, when South Sydney Rabbitohs-bound Edene Gebbie swooped on a Tigers grubber and scorched 90 metres downfield to score.

Both teams played the last 40 with only two fit men on the bench following a horror first half, as rival halfbacks Tom Dearden and Josh Ralph were both helped from the field by trainers in the 39th minute.

The Tigers have not struggled to score tries this year and they created enough opportunities to win the game, however the Seagulls were rock solid in defence and simply refused to allow the Tigers to score.

Easts will face the Redcliffe Dolphins in round 20.
