Jets bow out of premiership race

AN injury ravaged Ipswich Jets outfit has been eliminated from the Qld Cup finals with a 42-12 loss to Wynnum at Bendigo Bank Oval on Saturday Night.

Jets Shoot Down Young Guns

THE Ipswich Jets have defeated the North Qld Young Guns 32-16 in their Qld Cup fixture at Bendigo Bank Oval on Saturday. Under bleak skies & showers sweeping across the ground it was the northern visitors that started the game the best with tries to centre Wallace Solomona & five-eighth Michael Meigan & a conversion to Nat Bowman had the Young Guns leading 10-0 after only ten mintes. After a long period of being under pressure & making silly mistakes the Jets finally got their act together with a smart try from dummy half by Jamie Tomlinson which was converted by Steve West to reduce the margin to 10-6 & then in the next set a big kick down field by Brendan Lindsay was met with a great Ipswich chase which forced the error from North Qld winger Simon Phillips who dropped the ball straight to Marcus Jensen who put Jermaine Alberts in for his first ever Qld Cup try, Steve West then kicked a great sideline conversion & after being outplayed for the majority of the half Ipswich led at half time 12-10. The second half started brilliantly for the home side with a try in the 5th minute by Ricky Bird & after the conversion Ipswich held an 18-10 advantage. The visitors then reduced the margin to two after Nat Bowman picked up a bouncing ball & then bamboozled the Ipswich defence with amazing footwork to go in adjacent to the post & duly converted & with 25 minutes remaining Ipswich led 18-16. The Jets then lifted a gear & scored tries to Ricky Bird & Brendan Lindsay & a conversion to West gave the Jets a commanding 28-16 lead with 8 minutes to play before West finished the game with a try in the corner after a good backline move & with the kick missing Ipswich had a hard fought 32-16 win to move up to 23 competition points. Ipswich travel to Davies Park next week to play Souths-Logan while the Young Guns play host to defending champions Redcliffe.

THIS afternoon at Stadium Toowoomba a Graham Mackay inspired Ipswich Jets have caused the first upset of the Qld Cup with a 34-24 victory over the Toowoomba Clydesdales in the ABC TV match after leading 22-4 at half time. Ex international Mackay was scintillating with four tries only blotting his copy book with a ten minute stint in the sin bin right on the half time hooter for a professional foul while half back Ricky Bird also had an outstanding match & being awarded the ABC man of the match award. Toowoomba had the early running scoring the first try before the Bird & Mackay show took over with Mackay having a hat trick by the interval & completing his fourth with an intercept try midway through the second half. Jets coach Gillmeister was relieved with his first up win in the competition while Toowoomba coach Kevin Walters was left searching for answers. Ipswich next week play Burleigh Bears at Bendigo Bank Oval while things get no easier for Toowoomba having to travel to Dolphin Oval at Redcliffe to play last years premiers.
