SAE Group Bilambil Jets will be hoping to give Southport Tigers a father of a hiding in their Gold Coast Rugby League Bycroft Cup match of the round at Bilambil Sports Ground on Mother's Day tomorrow (3pm).

Matt Ovington and Jed Watson are expected to back-up from rep duties - they represent Gold Coast Vikings against Ipswich this afternoon - Watson will settle in the second row and Ovington goes back to Reggies following the return from injury of star centre, Guy Lanston.

Lanston out been out for three weeks recovering from an operation to his beak - coach, Jim Lenihan had little hesitation in putting him back into the side despite the solid form shown by Ovington.

Also returning to the fold from injury is classy fullback Tyler Chadburn who missed the previous round with an ankle injury.

Lenihan has been delighted with the Jets recent performances following a "slow start" to the new season.

"We have won our past two games and it would be nice to chalk up a hat-trick of wins against a quality side like Southport," Lenihan said.

"But we'll need to play at our best for the entire 80 minutes if we are to finish in front on the scoreboard.

"They are a forward orientated side boasting a number of big, tough and skilful men such as Chris Hodges who is one of the very best players in the Bycroft Cup.

"Still, I couldn't be happier with how my players are performing in recent weeks and I am confident we can send them home with their Tiger tails between their legs."

All mums attending tomorrow's match will be presented with a gift.

In other games this round, Tugun and Burleigh Bears clash in another tough tussle at Boyd Street and Runaway Bay host Tweed Coast Raiders at Bycroft Oval.

The Raiders have been walloped by the top sides in recent weeks but showed enough in trailing 14-4 at half-time against the Jets to indicate they have ability all over the park.
