Intrust Super Cup Round 12 results
Fifty was the magic number during the Intrust Super Cup's Rivalry Round with three teams cracking the half-century over an action packed weekend.
Close contests were hard to come by with scoreboard attendants across the state made to work a little harder for their money.
Ipswich Jets, Easts Tigers and Tweed Heads all scored 50 points against their rivals with a number of fringe NRL stars getting amongst the points.
Melbourne Storm winger Matt Duffie scored his sixth try in two games after bagging four during Easts' 50-6 demolition of Norths Devils. The Tigers were up 36-0 at half-time with Duffie scoring his fourth four-pointer on the stroke of full-time.
Marmin Barba snared a hat-trick for the Jets as they soared past Souths Logan Magpies 50-20 at Jack O’Chin Oval in Cherbourg, the hometown of Parramatta's Chris Sandow.
Barba's haul took his try-scoring tally to 16 for the season with the Norths Mackay junior on track to better his return of 22 tries from last year with more than half a season of football still left to be played.
Shaun Carney, Ricardo Parata and Blake Anderson scored two tries each for Tweed Heads as they swept aside Burleigh Bears 50-4 at Piggabeen Sports to move up to seventh on the ladder, while the Sunshine Coast Falcons recorded a morale boosting 36-24 win over the bottom-placed CQ Capras in Rockhampton.
The Falcons outscored the Capras six tries to five with gun Storm half Ben Hampton celebrating his return from suspension with a four-pointer.
Mackay edged defending premiers Northern Pride 12-10 in Cairns courtesy of a Jordan Pereira double to maintain fifth place as the Pride dropped to eighth.
The final match of Round 12 featured the bayside battle between Redcliffe and Wynnum Manly at Dolphin Oval.
Two tries to Patrick Templeman and a 10-point haul to Matt Seamark saw the Seagulls home 22-12, snapping Redcliffe's three-match winning run.
The ladder-leading Townsville Blackhawks and PNG received weekend byes with the Hunters staying in fourth place as a result.
