Tigers vs WM Seagulls: Brisbane Fight Valiantly But Fall Just Short

The Brisbane Tigers mounted a spirited second-half fightback against Wynnum Manly in Round 13 but their valiant efforts ultimately fell just short as the Seagulls held on for an 18-16 victory. Tigers vs WM Seagulls kicked off at 3:00 p.m. last Saturday, June 8 at the Totally Workwear Stadium.

Wynnum Manly came out of the gates firing, with lock Josh Stuckey grabbing a first-half double to help the home side race out to an 18-6 lead at the break. The Seagulls looked in complete control after their blistering start.

However, the Tigers refused to go away quietly. Led by a phenomenal individual performance from centre Kane Bradley, Brisbane turned the tide in the second stanza.

The towering Bradley was simply unstoppable, scoring two tries while racking up 193 run metres, 79 post-contact metres, 2 line breaks, 5 tackle busts and 2 offloads in a true master class of powerful centre play.

Despite Bradley’s herculean efforts, the Tigers just couldn’t quite get over the line as Wynnum’s first-half burst proved too much to overcome.

Tigers captain Ryley Jacks bemoaned his side’s slow start as the ultimate difference maker.

Jacks said that their atrocious first half really hurt them with those two sin bins and lack of discipline. “If we can fix that up, I back us to win games like this,” he argued.
