Round 5 Feeder Club Wrap-up

The Brisbane Tigers and Sunshine Coast Falcons sit 1-2 on the Hostplus Cup ladder after both Storm affiliate clubs continued their winning ways over the ANAZAC Round.

The Falcons climbed to second by defeating the Mackay Cutters 30-10 on a wet Saturday afternoon at Sunshine Coast Stadium.

Storm’s Jack Howarth scored a fine solo try, beating three defenders on a run to the line, to send the Falcons into the halftime break with an 18-6 lead.

Tyran Wishart played the first 40 minutes at halfback before handing over to Daniel Atkinson for the second half and the former Storm player made an impact, adding one of the Coast’s two tries that sealed the win.

Meanwhile, the Tigers overcame the previously unbeaten CQ Capras 28-14 with Storm half Jayden Nikorima earning the man-of-the-match award.

The Tigers kicked clear with three second-half tries to remain unbeaten after five rounds.

Bronson Garlick had a team-high 28 tackles for the victors, who gave a club debut to fellow Storm forward Alec MacDonald.

This weekend, the Falcons are at home to the 14th-placed Ipswich Jets on Sunday, while the Tigers have a Saturday night duel with the Cutters in Mackay.
