Can anyone halt Gulls? flight towards triple crown?



It's been a point-scoring rampage for the club as it captured minor premierships in all three grades.

Tomorrow, all those points count for nothing.

With the minor premierships in the bag, Daniel Evans (A-grade), Luke Moy (reserves) and Dane Evans (under-18s) will be urging a fresh effort from their troops as the club embarks on its finals campaign.

Whoever wins tomorrow's games at Piggabeen Sports Complex will advance directly to this year's grand final, with the losers to play for the right again next week.

Here's how Sports Editor Adam Wratten sees the action unfolding.

These two sides battled it out for the minor premiership for much of the year ? Seagulls eventually getting up courtesy of a classy 36-22 win against the Mustangs at Stan Sercombe Oval. In that game, Seagulls prop Matty Briggs was among the best on the park, laying the platform for his side's halves combination ? five-eighth Paul Rolls and Daniel Evans ? who are always dangerous. The big question tomorrow will be whether the Mustangs can deny those two quality ball, and stick with the fast pace at which Seagulls play the game. There's no suggestion they can't.

The Murwillumbah side has plenty of quality of its own and appears to have a great team spirit. Led by skipper Glenn Weaver they never give up. Take the round-three clash between the two clubs for example, when the Mustangs came from behind in a 38-all draw at Piggabeen.

Kick-off tomorrow is 2.45pm
