Townsville power over Pride

Four players scored doubles as the Townsville Blackhawks proved too strong for the Pride in their northern derby match to open Round 17 of the Intrust Super Cup.

Kalifa Faifai-Loa, Michael Bell, Josh Chudleigh and Temone Power all crossed twice in the big win for the Blackhawks in front of their home fans at Jack Manski Oval.

Inaugural Mendi Blackhawks Captain Anthony Mitchell launched Townville’s "Indigenous Round" with a wonderful Acknowledgement of Country.

Then the tries came for the home side; three of them in the first 10 minutes of the match.

The opening four-pointer came from Faifai-Loa who leapt over the Pride defence in just the second minute of the game.

In just his second game in Intrust Super Cup, and his first at home, young gun Bell was next to score, his first of two.

Chudleigh stood out for the home side as well not only for his double, while Power was also strong.

Jaelen Feeney, who was back in the halves and forward Jake Marketo were the other try scorers for Townsville.

Pride half Jordan Biondi-Odo was the only player to find joy for the visitors, crossing for their try in the 60th minute.

The most entertaining try of the day came courtesy of Bacho Salam who after scoring with eight minutes left in the first half, broke into a shake-a-leg to mark the celebrations of the Intrust Super Cup’s Indigenous Round.

Blackhawks Aaron Payne praised his team for a polished performance after the match

"I was very happy with how our attack was going, but happier with our discipline and our defence." Payne said.

"We didn't give away as many penalties as we have been, and they stuck to our plan.

"We needed a good win for our for-and-against.

"The competition is so close and tough and come the end of the season, it could make a difference of making the finals and not making them."

The Blackhawks Hastings Deering Colts Under 20 side also had a strong win, making it six straight for the side with their 60-18 result against the young Pride side.

Next week, the Blackhawks will travel to Ingham for the Intrust Super Cup's "Country Round" to take on Burleigh.

The Pride are also on the road for the special round and will face the Ipswich Jets in Thursday Island.
