The Tweed Seagulls are coming to town and they will be keen to stop any Jets momentum gained from their win over Central Queensland two weeks ago but the Seagulls don’t have a great record in Ipswich to fall back on.

TWEED PLAYERS TO WATCH
Jayden Campbell has been lighting up the Intrust Super Cup this season, it’s his first year and four games into his career the Tweed fullback is causing damage for everyone from the back.
His kick returns have been lethal and he leads the competition with 333 metres, the next best Is Pride fullback Jayden Corrigan over 100 metres behind.
Campbell leads the Intrust Super Cup for tackle breaks too with 36- so in summary if you kick it down there you better get moving because he’s bringing it back at speed.
Toby Sexton continues to impress me, another young Seagull. Sexton has been learning his craft his first four Intrust Super Cup games but has come up with some plays that stand out.
He has four try assists, against Souths he had his best game with five tackle breaks and two try assists. He took the line on and has scored two tries.
A fearless front rower charging recklessly at anyone and everyone is a beautiful sight in league and doing it for Tweed has been JJ Collins.
Don’t let the smile fool you, Collins will trample you. Collins hasn’t missed a tackle the last two games either.
Collins has six tackle breaks this season and one try but he grounds out running metres for the Seagulls.
IPSWICH PLAYERS TO WATCH
The Jets have two offload kings in the top five in the Intrust Super Cup. Nat Neale is leading the competition with 18 and Blake Lenehan is currently at fourth with nine.
What the Jets did very well against the Capras was pass to Jets in a better position than they were. The Jets have offloaded 81 times this season. In second place is Tweed. This could be a great afternoon of second phase play.
Tyler Coburn has been making 106 tackles this season but what is impressive is he does it at 90%. Round one was Coburn’s most missed tackles with three. Coburn reminds me a little of former Jet Sam Martin- does a lot of clean up work and untidy work that goes unnoticed. Two games this year against the Hunters and Falcons, Coburn had his running game going and made over 100 metres.
Seb Pandia is only two games back from a massive comeback but he’s already having an impact. He’s started in one game and came off the bench against the Tigers.
His minutes are going up from 28 minutes to 54 minutes as he continues to push through. Pandia will be back to his offloading running best soon.
He made 110 metres against the Capras up from 49 against the Tigers.
Josh Cleeland two points – 150 points for Jets- 16 tries and 42 goals.
Tyson Lopfipo needs four points for 100 points for Jets – 24 tries.
Rich Pandia 14 points to 150 – 34 tries
Julian Christian 10 points to 100 – 22 tries and one goal
