Falcons feel they're in with a Cup show

RUGBY LEAGUE: The Sunshine Coast will be looking to significantly improve on last year's efforts when the side takes to the field at this weekend's 47th Battalion Cup Carnival in Roma.

The Falcons struggled desperately to mix it with representative local teams from around Queensland last year and failed to win a game, going down to Gladstone 28-6 and Bundaberg 36-10.

It was a disappointing result considering the Coast would usually be rated one of the strongest rugby league areas in the state.

However, with a re-energised local competition that has been strengthened by the Sunshine Coast Falcons/ Melbourne Storm feeder association, the Coast has a lot to like about its chances this weekend.

The Falcons play Gladstone on Saturday and Toowoomba on Sunday.

If they win those matches, they will play in Sunday's final.

The rules have been changed for the carnival, with teams playing 25-minute halves instead of the usual 40 minutes.

Coaches have 20 players at their disposal, including the bench, and there are unlimited interchanges.

Any player who has taken part in more than three Intrust Super Cup matches is ineligible to play.

Maroochydore's Jason Wardrop is expected to captain the side.

He was selected for the Central Division team last year at the carnival's end in spite of his team's ordinary performances.

FALCONS: J Cook, M Ebdon, D Foley, A Forrest, C Gelhaar, M Goldsworthy, T Hearn, R Kamillo, J Lawton, T Long, J Madsen, R Northover, J Oloapu, B Rogers, S Sotogi, P Taylor, M Ward, J Wardrop, G Mallet, T Hines.
