Falcons soar into grand final
THE Sunshine Coast Falcons have set up a grand final showdown with the PNG Hunters, after they smashed Redcliffe 40- 14 at Dolphin Oval yesterday.
In a stunning performance, Craig Ingebrigtsen’s side ran riot in the second half to secure their first Intrust Super Cup grand final appearance since 2009.
The Falcons scored four tries to one in the second stanza, with star halfback Ryley Jacks bagging a double.
Former Hunter Justin Olam also claimed two tries for himself, after he scored the first four- pointer of the game in the sixth minute.
The final score from the Sunshine Coast was one that few could have predicted, given Redcliffe’s form this year. But Ingebrigtsen said his side executed perfectly yesterday to leave the Dolphins heartbroken. “It’s a bit surreal,” he said. “You start in the middle of November and you think of this as your goal, that you want to play in the grand final.
“Obviously only two teams go there so I’m really happy and proud of our group.
“We made sure we were clinical about what we did.”
