This Sunday, the Pride will fly out to the Jets ground for a match that coach Eric Smith hopes to be a continuation of the remarkable performance against the North Devil’s in round five. 

After a bye week to recover and refocus, they’re hoping to turn the last match into a streak of wins. Kick off time in Ipswich will be 2.10pm.

“I am really excited for the game, I believe the team needs to continue building on the game against Norths Devils and maintain a focus on our starts and defensive efforts for a big week this week heading down to Ipswich,” Smith said.

“We have two new Cowboys players: Harrison Edwards who has played for the Bulldogs before and Kaiden Lahrs, who has played in the Mal Meninga Cup for the Norther Pride but this will be his Host Plus Cup debut.”

Pride chief executive Garreth Smith said he was confident the team could topple the Jets.

“The team took a well-deserved rest during the round 7 bye week, it’s important to acknowledge the hard work and dedication they’ve shown throughout the season,” he said.

“The Ipswich Jets are currently sitting in 14th place, and we are sitting in 4th position.  We expect this to be a tough game and one where the Jets are a very respected opponent. “
