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.
Ipswich missing 6 regulars were never in the hunt against an inform Wynnum, with the match starting badly for the Jets with them going over the sideline on the second tackle of the match & Wynnum scoring from the scrum & then going in again straight after to have a 10-0 lead after only four minutes.
Ipswich's cause wasn't helped by some strange decisions by referee Adam Neale which ended with Ipswich five-eighth Brendan Lindsay getting sin binned in the 21st minute.
Wynnum extended their lead to 22-6 at the break & virtually sealed a place in next weeks grand final qualifier in the 45th minute & ended up running out convincing 42-12 winners although credit must go to the Jets for never giving up for the 80 minutes & full credit must go to coach Trevor Gillmeister, CEO Craig Teevan & all the players & support staff for a great season with a team that not many people gave any chance of still being around in September.
It has been a pleasure to be involved with a great bunch of people this year. As for Wynnum, on what they showed last night i don't think either Redcliffe or Burleigh will take them lightly & it should be a great clash at Dolphin Oval next Saturday.
