NORTHS 44 - Toowoomba 34
REDCLIFFE easily accounted for Ipswich today extending a hoodoo which has seen the Jets winless at Dolphin Oval since 1994. The Dolphins ran out 42-20 winners after leading 30-4 at the break. In the first half Redcliffe outclassed Ipswich in attack and defense, at times threatening to score at will. The second half was a scrappy affair with neither side controlling the ball. Ipswich staged a mini fightback to trail 36-20 with 15 minutes remaining but the Dolphins held strong for a much needed Wizard Qld Cup victory.
NEWTOWN?S thrilling 36-34 win over Balmain, in the VB Premier League local derby played at Henson Park on Saturday, was certainly not an ideal occasion for persons with a nervous disposition. The Sydney Airport Jets had trailed 18-16 at the break, following a try for try first half. The Jets took command early in the second half, only to lapse alarmingly in a seven-minute horror patch during which the Tigers piled on three tries and two conversions.
