Seagulls' heartbreak

Wynnum Manly left Tweed Heads heartbroken on Sunday after a late try secured an unlikely 24-18 victory.

The Seagulls, looking for their first win after two heavy losses to start the season, were in control of the match early at North Stradbroke Island in wet conditions.

Leading 18-nil in the first 11 minutes after notching up just two tries in their opening two matches, the Seagulls looked well on their way to a big win before Wynnum Manly scored the next 24 points of the match.

Seagulls were left to rue their errors, highlighted by a Wynnum penalty kick which levelled the game at 18-all late in the game, after co-captain Damien Sironen was penalised for taking out a decoy runner.

Seagulls will search for their first season win against Central Queensland at Cbus Stadium on Saturday.

  • Wynnum Manly 24 (Mitchell Buckett, Mitchell Cronin, Jack Goodsell, Brendon Gibb tries; Travis Burns 4 goals) defeated Tweed Heads 18 (James Wood, Damian Sironen, James Toole tries; Michael Burgess 3 goals) at Ron Stark Oval, Stradbroke Island.
