This game is building up as one of the highlights of the weekend, with both sides undefeated so far in the competition. The Dolphins have won all four of their past outings, while the Jets started their season with two straight draws before notching two wins, including last weekend's strong 32-12 victory over the Mackay Cutters. The Dolphins inflicted the Sunshine Coasts worst-ever defeat last weekend, with star halfback Ryan Carr pulling the strings on the field and lightning-quick fullback Justin Hunt providing the polish. However, the Dolphins are predicted to face a sterner contest against the Jets, whose style of play so far this season has seen them impress many. While Ipswich have been without the spark of attacking weapon Donald Malone (shoulder injury) for the past few weeks, they don't seem to have missed him as much as would have been expected, with the Jets backs, including Joseph Tomane and Brendon Marshall, filling the void. Redcliffe dominates the head to head record, winning 22 of the 31 games. Ipswich forward Trevor Exton plays his 50th Queensland Cup match for the Jets and his 140th overall.
CENTRAL COMETS v MACKAY CUTTERS
Saturday, April 16 - 6pm
The Central Comets will be desperate to notch their first win of the season in front of their home fans in Rockhampton. After leading against the high-flying Tweed Heads Seagulls last week, the Comets let them off the hook with too many errors, an area of their game coach Wayne Barnett is looking to tighten up. The Comets will also be boosted this week with the inclusion of utility Ian Webster, who has missed the past few games with a rib complaint. Webster is a versatile player who is equally home in the halves or at hooker. After starting strongly, with good wins over the Norths Devils and the Sunshine Coast Sea Eagles, the Cutters have suffered two big losses and could face an uphill battle to avoid the same fate against a desperate Central Comets outfit. Making their task all the more difficult is the absence of skipper and experienced five-eighth Grant Rovelli, who fractured his ribs in last weekend's loss to the Ipswich Jets. Ben Jones has been named as his replacement for the Cutters, who are also likely to be without the Ah Mau brothers - Leeson and Isaak. Local Mackay product Kailem Perkins will make his Intrust Super Cup debut for the Cutters in a tremendous boost to the area. Head coach Anthony Seibold has been impressed with the development of Perkins, a member of Mackay's Under 18 team last year.
SOUTHS LOGAN v BURLEIGH BEARS
Sunday, April 17 - 3pm
The only Sunday game of the round, Davies Park will play host to two desperate footy sides. Burleigh have been uncharacteristically slow out of the blocks, and will be searching for only their second win so far. The Magpies will have a point to prove to their home fans, after the Tigers snatched a last minute 32-26 victory from their nest last weekend. However, both teams are fairly evenly-matched and it would not surprise if this game develops into a real arm-wrestle. The Bears have made a few positional changes from the team that took the field at Pizzey Park last week, with Riley Brown named at hooker and Nick Parfitt to start the game at centre. Souths Logan have made minimal changes to their team, with rookie Wesley Forsyth coming in for Mark Ioane. Paul Bramley, a former premiership-winning coach with Souths Logan, will travel to Davies Park for the first time in his new role as Burleigh's head coach.
