Townsville & Districts Mendi Blackhawks have today secured the 2015 Intrust Super Cup Minor Premiership after taking down the Redcliffe Dolphins 46-22 in Round 25 TURN TO ME round at Jack Manski Oval in Townsville. The blockbuster match was screened on Channel 9 and halfback Michael Parker-Walshe took out XXXX Man of the Match.
On a hot day in North Queensland the Townsville & Districts Mendi Blackhawks and the Redcliffe Dolphins walked onto the field in Townsville side by side in a show of solidarity in support of “Turn To Me” Round raising awareness for male depression. The players wore Turn to Me t-shirts that they threw to the crowd along with blue socks to mark the occasion.
After the pre-game festivities were complete it did not take long for the on field action to begin. Two and a half minutes into the game the Mendi Blackhawks crossed the line for the first points of the clash against the Redcliffe Dolphins. Three minutes later the home side experienced a double blow as Captain Dan Beasley left the field with a leg injury and the Dolphins scored an easy try through Joe Bradley.
The final try of the day came from the Martin and Parker-Walshe combination as the second rower crossed the line for his second try at the 69th minute taking the final score to 46-22.
Post-match Coach Kristian Woolf was full of praise for the younger members of his team highlighting Corey Jensen and Samsen O’Neill for stepping up and making solid contributions. Woolf was also equally pleased with experienced campaigners Michael Parker-Walshe and Neville Costigan who steered the team around the paddock in the absence of Captain Dan Beasley.
