Seagulls through to big dance
BREAKING: Hervey Bay Seagulls will play Brothers in the Bundaberg Rugby League grand final after defeating Easts Magpies at Salter Oval tonight.
Despite going into the preliminary final undermanned, the Seagulls did enough to hold on for a 26-22 victory.
It was the Seagulls' second win over the Magpies during this year's finals series and their fifth consecutive triumph over the Bundaberg side this season.
Given how poorly the Seagulls have played against Brothers this year - four losses by an average of 48 points - Hervey Bay will undoubtedly start underdogs next week.
