Rested Seagulls looking to tame Tigers

THE Tweed Seagulls will be hitting the Easts Tigers hard tomorrow, after a well-deserved break and some time to get fighting fit.

The away game will be at Langlands Park, Coorparoo in Brisbane, but the Tweed boys were looking to climb a little higher up the QRL Cup ladder.

Tweed Seagulls chief executive Terry Keen said the Gulls were raring to go.

"They've all been playing well and working as a complete unit, it's been great," Keen said.

"I'm looking forward to it, it's going to be a good tussle."

After a win against the powerful Northern Pride side at Innisfail in round four, Keen's team was quietly confident.

"We had a good win up at Innisfail," he said.

"The boys are ready, we had that week off and they're keen to get involved."

But Keen said his players wouldn't be getting ahead of themselves.

"We just keep struggling along," he said.

"The Aussie battlers south of the border.

"They're a strong team (Tigers) and their affiliation with the Melbourne Storm will rub off on them."

Tweed Heads Seagulls versus Easts Tigers will kick off at 2pm tomorrow.

Head down to the game early to see the Fogs Colts kick off at 10.30am.

The Seagulls are currently tied second on the ladder on six points with five other teams, including the Easts Tigers.
