Falcons go into finals on back of strong win

A return to form has buoyed the Sunshine Coast Falcons as they prepare to head into the state league finals.

The Falcons put on a dominant display against the Townsville Blackhawks at home yesterday, scoring eight tries to secure a 42-16 victory.

The win cemented a fourth place finish on the 14-team ladder, and a home clash in the opening round of finals against Souths Logan Magpies.

Front rower Lachlan Timm said it had been good to finish the regular season strong after recent performances.

"It was pretty impressive for us and I don't think we've put together a complete game performance like that for a number of weeks so it was good to finally get one together,” he said.

Defence was key for the Falcons' success against Townsville according to Timm, and was something he believed would be vital in the upcoming finals clash.

"What works best for us is when we defend really well as a team and hold the ball and play to our strength,” he said.

"We've got points in us, we've just got to hold the ball and defend well and points come off the back of that for us.”

He said the Falcons had been a "bit off” in defensive performances over the past few weeks, but had always possessed the potential.

"We expect that we can go all the way, the only thing that's going to hold us back is ourselves,” he said.

"We've always known that we could do it and we should have been dominating the last couple of weeks.

"We know we have it in us but just doing it is a bit different.”

It's been a whirlwind season for the Maroochydore Swans junior, who finds himself entering a finals series in his debut year for the team.

"I haven't played in finals in a couple years and I've never played in Q-Cup finals so it'll be awesome to get back here in front of a home crowd,” he said.

"We have a big task ahead of us next week against Souths but we know as a group we can do it, we've just got to work hard together and get the job done.”

Ryley Jacks and Jahrome Hughes were strong on Sunday. Coach Craig Ingebrigtsen said his players were in the right frame of mind and looked forward to the return of captain Dane Hogan against the Magpies.
