WYNNUM Manly Seagulls have announced a signing coup for the 2017 Intrust Super Cup season, with former North Queensland Cowboys playmaker Travis Burns to join new coach Adam Brideson at the club next year.

Burns - a halfback or five-eighth with 127 games of NRL experience after playing stints with the Cowboys, Penrith and Manly - will join the Seagulls from the English Super League competition.

Burns has been in the UK since 2013, with playing stints at Hull KR, St Helens and Leigh Centurions, and will be part of a new-look Seagulls team in 2017 under the direction of new head coach Brideson.

“Travis is a renowned competitor who will give Wynnum Manly his all on every single play,” Brideson said.

“He expressed a desire to return to Queensland and win a competition before he retires, and pleasingly believes he can tick the last box in an excellent career by doing that with Wynnum Manly.

“Travis will obviously bring an enormous amount of experience and direction to the team. He will play hard, lead by his actions and is the type of bloke that everyone will want to play alongside.

“As a coach, I could not ask for much more out of a senior player.”

Wynnum Manly Seagulls Chief Executive Hanan Laban said signing a player of Burns’ ability and experience was a tremendous vote of confidence in the Seagulls as a club, and for the Intrust Super Cup competition as a whole.

“We are ecstatic to secure Travis for next year. To be able to sign a player of his calibre just shows the strides that the Intrust Super Cup has made in recent years and reaffirmed its status as the second best rugby league competition in the world,” Laban said.

“Travis is a player that our valuable members, sponsors, supporters and local community will be excited to see in a Seagulls jersey next season.”

Burns believes it is the right time to return home and was thankful for the support he received at St Helens.

“It is the right time to move back home and take up a new challenge,” he said. “My wife and kids have followed me followed me around Australia and the UK for several years and now it’s time to put them first.

“I’d like to thank the Saints fans for their fantastic support – alongside Mike Rush and Eamonn McManus who have supported me and my family.

“Nothing was too much trouble for them and for that I am most appreciative.”

St Helens Chief Executive Mike Rush added: “We’d like to wish Travis all the best for the rest of 2016 with the Centurions and with the Seagulls in 2017.

“He was a dedicated professional whose experience proved vital to the younger members in our squad.”

Seagulls power to GF win over Tigers

The Wynnum Manly Seagulls are the FOGS Colts Challenge premiers for 2016 after proving too strong for the Easts Tigers winning 34-12 at Suncorp Stadium today.

Seagulls half back Aaron Booth fittingly received man of the match honours, scoring two tries and setting up two more for his wingers with some spectacular kicks.

It was the perfect start for the Seagulls in the game – and it was one that all teams hope to achieve in a grand final match.

Centre William Toloi was able to cross in the corner to open the scoring for the Seagulls who were on the hunt for the premiership after going to Burleigh at the same venue in the decider last year.  

Steven Tatipata, Booth, Mitipere Tuatai and Dale Madden also went over in the first half to set up a dominant 24-0 lead in first half.

This came despite the fact they fumbled three times from the kick off. Despite the miscommunications; the Gulls were able to rely on their strong defensive effort to hold out a dangerous Tigers pack.

It was going to take a big comeback for the Tigers, who took a tough road to get to the grand final winning two golden point matches, to get back into the game.

They started their second half attack brilliantly with back-to-back tries, with winger Connor Jones and speedy centre Hayden Bishop scoring to bring the score to a respectable 24-12 with in the 50th minute.

With the Tigers lifting and needing only two converted tries to level the scores; the Seagulls looked as though they might have left all their efforts on the field in the first half.

It looked as though it might be a similar situation to last year’s decider when they let a strong lead to fall to the Bears who started their comeback early in the second and ran away with the victory.  

However, history did not repeat itself and the Seagulls proved they were the minor premiers for a reason. Two late tries to Booth and an impressive Madden put the game to rest for the Wynnum Manly side.

Wynnum's second half sinks Capras

ALEX BARR Action shot

By Kenny Andres - 

The green and red resurgence increased to five wins last night, with Wynnum continuing their winning ways against the CQ Capras, scoring 30 points or more for the fifth straight game.

With Greg Eden being called up to the Broncos, Daniel Ogden slipped back into his familiar number one jersey for his 50th game for Wynnum. This allowed long-time Wynnum A Grade winger Hayden Crowley to earn his Intrust Super Cup debut.

The Bayside breeze came in spades for the Saturday night clash, increasing the terror of the highball for all involved. Capras winger Jake Ainsworth was the first victim, spilling a Patrick Templeman bomb before the five-eighth re-gathered the scraps of his creation for a four-pointer.

Ainsworth would atone for his mistake minutes later, finishing off a perfect cut-out pass from halfback Matt Minto to take advantage of some over eager Seagull defence.

Minto would be at it again soon after.  Some side-to-side movement at midfield by the Capras eventually gave the halfback an opportunity to attack the Wynnum defensive line on the fifth-tackle. Minto would turn it back inside to his half-pairing in Maipele Morseau who would be wrangled up just metres short of the try line.

The middle period of the first half suggested Wynnum were on track to devastate the Rockhampton visitors, with the Seagulls slapping on three tries in quick succession including Crowley’s maiden four-pointer in the 19th minute, but Kim Williams’ boys finally clicked into gear with eight minutes to go in the first.

Minto would again direct his troops into attacking formation before fullback Reece Baker held off a pass long enough to send Ainsworth over for his second.

A penalty on the ensuing set would present another late opportunity for CQ, one they would capitalise on when Mark Johnstone set up big prop forward Gavin Hiscox under the black dot.

Following the rule of three, the six and seven would again combine on the buzzer, with Minto sending a grubbing kick behind the line for Morseau to chase-down and score the game-tying try to silence the Chook Pen.

The second half however, would not be painted with the same drama. Wynnum opened the scoring and did not look back, squashing the hope of another Kim Williams comeback at Kougari.

Ogden would get one try closer to the second all-time try-scoring spot after Tim Natusch delivered a halfback-esque ball to the fullback in the 47th minute.

Templeman continued to pile up the assists, this time with his hands, slipping into dummy half at the line before sneaking a pass to Mitchell Buckett, who would score again in the exact same spot 10 minutes later thanks to a tremendous ‘round-the-corner’ offload by Crowley.

The debutant winger would have his good play rewarded a few sets later on the back-end of an Ogden break, scoring a double on debut in the left hand corner.

The Capras woes were accumulated in the 71st minute when Matt Seamark picked off a pass off a scrum before disposing the ball to Mitch Cronin to finish for the Seagulls.

The visitors would hold their heads high after a consolation try in the closing minutes, Minto capping off an impressive night in a losing side with another try-assist via the boot when Samson Graham gathered his grubber and crashed over.

WYNNUM MANLY SEAGULLS 50 (Mitchell Buckett 2, Hayden Crowley 2, Patrick Templeman, Alex Barr, Peter Gubb, Daniel Ogden, Mitchell Cronin tries; Mathew Seamark 7 goals) def CQ CAPRAS 28 (Jake Ainsworth 2, Gavin Hiscox, Maipele Morseau, Samson Graham tries; Mark Johnstone 3, Matthew Minto goals) at BMD Kougari Oval.
