THE TWEED Seagulls went in to their match with North's Devils  on a five match winning streak, all be it without their captain Matt King and Centre James Wood  who are both expected to spend several weeks on the sideline.

Conditions were good at Piggabeen with the sun out and a dry pitch making for a fast match.

North's capitalised on the majority of possession and several lapses in defence from Tweed, leading by 12 points after 25 minutes.

Tweed came out after the break and let in another try straight away which would have disappointed coach Aaron Zimmerle.

It was a tough contest up the middle of the park, with Broncos Scott Anderson and Jarrod Wallace setting a good platform for the North's backs.

After 78 minutes the Seagulls had ground their way back into the match and a late try from Tom Merritt was converted to make the scores 30 a piece.

In a heart breaker, North's kicked a field goal with ten seconds remaining in the match to win.
