Feeder Report: Round 6 & 7

It was a successful weekend out for Storm’s feeder teams in Rounds 6 and 7, recording two wins and a draw across both the HostPlus Cup and Knock On Effect NSW Cup. 

The Falcons continued their strong run of form to start 2024, making it three wins on the trot after proving too strong for the Townsville Blackhawks, prevailing 28-14 at Sunshine Coast Stadium. 

Meanwhile the Brisbane Tigers couldn’t be separated after the 80 minutes in their clash against the CQ Capras, playing out a 12-12 draw at Totally Workwear Stadium. 

Grant Anderson’s try scoring form continued for the Falcons, scoring for the third consecutive game while Young Tonumaipea was equally effective, racking up 163 metres, four tackle breaks and a try assist.

Jack Howarth also got on the try scorers' sheet, adding to his 118 run metres and three tackle breaks. 

For the Tigers, Tristan Powell produced a barnstorming performance, breaking eight tackles on his way to running for 206 metres as well as managing 48 tackles at 92% efficiency.

Jonah Pezet also continued to impress in the No.7 jersey, scoring a try and kicking two goals. 

In the NSW Cup the Bears proved too good for the Canberra Raiders, keeping the visitors scoreless in the second half to register a 20-12 win.

Tyran Wishart got his first opportunity at feeder level after not being required for Storm’s Round 7 win over the Roosters, managing 15 tackles in his stint at hooker. 

All three of Storm’s feeder teams will be on the road next week, the Bears travelling to face the Western Suburbs Magpies in Round 8, while the Falcons will head north to Rockhampton to play the CQ Capras and the Tigers taking on the Tweed Seagulls.
