Easts Tigers dan­ger­ous in fi­nals charge

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT - RIKKI- LEE ARNOLD PETER BADEL

EASTS Tigers skip­per Jake Fos­ter has de­clared his side can “def­i­nitely” win this year’s com­pe­ti­tion, af­ter they struck up a com­mand­ing 46- 10 vic­tory over Souths Lo­gan.

The Tigers sent a warn­ing to com­pe­ti­tion lead­ers PNG and sec­ond- placed Redcliffe yes­ter­day, af­ter they moved into third spot on the In­trust Su­per Cup lad­der.

Scott Sip­ple’s side were ruth­less as they took down an in­jury- rav­aged Mag­pies and it ap­pears the quiet achiev­ers are hit­ting form at the per­fect time ahead of this year’s fi­nals, with just two rounds of the reg­u­lar sea­son re­main­ing.

With a bye next week, Fos­ter said his team had plenty of con­fi­dence they could be a fi­nals force this year.

By get­ting the two points yes­ter­day, Easts have se­cured a top- four fin­ish.

On Satur­day, PNG con­tin­ued their march to­wards the mi­nor pre­mier­ship with a 24- 16 vic­tory over Townsville, while Redcliffe also claimed an ex­pected two points over Tweed Heads, with a 30- 4 win.

Norths caused the up­set of the round, beat­ing fourth­placed Sun­shine Coast 18- 10.
