Jets turn on the afterburne­rs


AN INCREDIBLE try from Broncos prodigy Carlin Anderson, featuring four soccer kicks, has booted the Ipswich Jets into week two of the Intrust Super Cup finals series.

The Jets overwhelme­d the Northern Pride in Ipswich yesterday afternoon, scoring sev- eral remarkable tries to win 54-26 in one of the most entertaini­ng games this year.

They now play Easts Tigers in what looms as a heated minor semi-final this weekend.

The Tigers were dominant against Wynnum Manly yesterday in the other eliminatio­n final, winning 32-24 at Kougari Oval.

They shot out to a 20-0 lead in the first half but the Seagulls fought back hard against a tiring Tigers defence but ultimately fell short.

While that game was exciting, it had nothing on the trya-thon in Ipswich.

There were short kick-offs, improbable offloads and backline sweep plays on the goalline in an exhibition of league only the Jets could pull off.
