Tweed Heads vs Northern Pride
Venue: Cudgen Oval* Date: Sat 14 Mar 2009 Game Time: 2:00pm
Referee: Clayton SHARPE Touch Judges: Justin EASTWOOD and David SHAW Interchange Official: Video Referee: Tony MAKSOUD
Tweed Heads will field arguably the most electrifying backline in the competition when it meets the Northern Pride in the ABC match of the round. The Seagulls have named 2007 grand final hero Shannon Walker at fullback for the round one clash. Throw in fellow speedsters Ben Jeffery, David Mead, David Wood and Brenton Bowen, and the Seagulls have an abundance of talent outwide. Steering the ship is the proven halves combination of Brad Davis and Tim Maccan. Likewise, the Northern Pride has named a powerful line-up. Inspirational halfback Chris Sheppard and tough back-rower Joel Riethmuller are back on board after missing the end of the Pride
