Limited changes to Falcons line up in final game

THE Sunshine Coast Falcons have made limited changes to the side which will face the Ipswich Jets on Sunday.

New South Wales and Australian representative Tom Learoyd-Lahrs has been named at prop after having a strong game against the Townsville Blackhawks last week in his first game in three months.

Learoyd-Lahrs will provide significant punch to the Falcons engine room as the Coast side attempts to finish their final game of the season with a win.

And they would be confident of doing that after last week's 20-13 loss to the Blackhawks who have only lost three games this campaign and lead the Intrust Super Cup.

The Falcons led 7-6 at half-time and extended their lead to 13-6 before Townsville came home with a wet sail to clinch the match.

The Coast have been in great touch of late to register four wins from the last six appearances, a significant improvement on last year when they won just one match.

They have won seven games this year and sit 11th on the ladder after 24 rounds.

Ipswich has had a strong year to sit third following last week's 34-12 annihilation of Tweed Heads and will be looking for momentum heading into next week's semi-finals.

Melbourne's Jordan McLean has been named in the Storm side as well as Billy Brittain, both of whom featured for the Falcons last week.

Falcons; S Wright, R Klein, Y Tonumaipea, H Hunt, T Robinson, B Hampton, D Oakes, T Learoyd-Lahrs, J Lobwein, R Hansen, P Ivan, J Samoa, T Murphy (c); J Platt, J Nahu-Main, M Adams, J Ballinger.
