Capras downed by red-hot Seagulls

SHE is a funny game, rugby league and the CQ Capras saw just how side splitting it can be.

Despite a 20-minute period where they played their best football of the year, the Capras went down to a scintillating Wynnum-Manly Seagulls 50-28 at Kougari Oval on Saturday evening.

The Seagulls shot out to a 22-4 point lead after as many minutes before the Capras' electrifying attack turned it on to even things up before the break.

But from there it was all one sided as Wynnum-Manly proved why they are the most in-form team in the comp, stretching their undefeated spell to five in a nine tries to five display.

"Not overly disappointed, they were just red hot, we were beaten by a better team on the day," Williams said.

"Funny game, one our attack was floorless for 20 minutes. We played our best footy of the year just before halftime, we didn't want halftime to come.

"It didn't feel like the score line, they scored three tries from kicks and their second half tries were very good.

"It's not like a game where they completely dominated us, just came up with great plays. We had a good attitude, they were just on song."

Winger Jake Ainsworth in his second game of the year grabbed two tries while Gavin Hiscox, Maipele Morseu and Samson Graham scored one each.

Williams said his five-eighth had a very good game.

"Maipele was probably our best, he was very dangerous," he said.

"Matt Minto was good, our halves played well to combine for tries well.

"We competed really well but couldn't match their form.

"Redcliffe next week will be an even more important game, but no heads are down."
