Thrilling victory over Capras in the BMD Premiership

Heading into Old Gulls Day, the Seagulls are riding high on the momentum of a hard-fought 24-22 victory over the Central QLD Capras in Rockhampton last weekend. The BMD Premiership team showcased remarkable resilience, weathering an early storm to establish a commanding 18-0 lead, courtesy of tries from Lilly Green, Julia Robinson, Destiny Mino-Sinapati, and Karina Brown.

Despite the Capras’ spirited comeback, which narrowed the gap to just two points, the Seagulls held their nerve, with Destiny Mino-Sinapati scoring a crucial try and Brianna Clark converting to secure the 24-22 triumph.

In the Hostplus Cup, however, the Seagulls experienced a setback in their season opener, suffering a 36-22 loss away against the Hunters on March 9.
