Home game advantage doesn't translate for Tweed Seagulls

HANDLING errors hampered the Tweed Seagulls efforts in their first home game of the season on Sunday against Norths Devils at Piggabeen Sports Complex.

It was another tough game for the seagulls who trailed into the break after a combination of mistakes.

Kalifa Faifai Loa chased a ball back into his own in goal and as he went to pick the pill up he made a meal of it, missing it completely as he slipped over, gifting a try to North's.

The momentum swung in the second half as it was all the Tweed, coming back strongly to get within 6 points of the Devils.

Damian Sironen and Titan Ryan James were good in the engine room, Sironen producing plenty of second phase play with some great offloads and James terrorised the Devils pack with some strong defence.

Both sides made handling errors at crucial stages of the second half with the Seagulls dropping the ball and knocking on while within 20 metres of the try line.

Late in the half the bulk of possession swung back with Norths and they extended their lead to finish 24-12 winners.

The Gulls travel to Davies Park to take on Souths Logan Magpies in round 4 on Sunday March 23.
