FROM THE WYNNUM MANLY SEAGULLS
The BMD Wynnum Manly Seagulls have had an action-packed month, with some very exciting times also around the corner.
The Seagulls finished off May with a trip to Mackay, where they battled through monsoonal rain to take the win in both men’s grades.
On Sunday 5 June, the Seagulls travelled to North Stradbroke Island (Minjerribah) to take on the Central QLD Capras in an Indigenous recognition match. Unfortunately, the Seagulls didn’t play well enough to defeat the Capras in a very scrappy game, losing to a penalty after the siren, 24-22.
Sunday 12 June saw the Seagulls take on fierce local rivals, the Brisbane Tigers back at BMD Kougari Oval. We came out firing after the previous week’s loss and won 32-22. This win put the Seagulls into 5th position on a congested ladder.
On Saturday 18 June, the Seagulls went to Hervey Bay to take on the high-flying Sunshine Coast Falcons in another Indigenous recognition match, scoring a 20-12 victory. This one was third time lucky, as the previous two year’s matches in the Fraser Coast region have been cancelled due to Covid.
The last two Seagulls home games of the Queensland Cup regular season are against Papua New Guinea Hunters on Saturday 9 July and Souths Logan Magpies on Sunday 21 August. The final home game against Souths will see both teams fight for the Mitch Cronin Cup at BMD Kougari Oval.
The Wynnum Manly Seagulls have also recently announced our 2022 Sportsman’s Dinner. This is the premier event on the Seagulls calendar, with Supercoach Wayne Bennett as the headline guest. Shane Webcke and Greg Ritchie will also join Wayne, with the night MC’d by 7 News presenter, Pat Welsh. For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit wynnumseagulls.com.au.
