Storm fun Kurt Mann fires up Coast battle

THE Sunshine Coast Falcons will be boosted by the inclusion of Storm playmaker Kurt Mann for tomorrow's crucial clash against Tweed Heads at Sunshine Coast Stadium.
 
Mann has been a steady contributor to the Storm's surge up the NRL ladder having played 26 NRL matches to date since debuting last year.
 
The 21-year-old has been dropped to the Intrust Super Cup and has signed a three-year deal to join the Dragons from next year.
 
Falcons coach Glen Dreger said Mann would be a quality addition to his team as they looked to make a charge to the playoffs.
 
"His experience and leadership will be really good for us this weekend, which is something we have been lacking a little bit, just that maturity," he said.
 
"We are missing Tom Murphy this week and we lose so much when Tommy is out.
 
"We will play Kurt at six this week, but you can play him anywhere really and he'll be up for the captains run together on Saturday."
 
The Falcons played strongly during patches of last week's 32-14 loss to Mackay in an emotional match which marked the Coast's first outing since the death of fallen Falcon James Ackerman.
 
"It was emotional and it was probably just good to get that game out of the way," Dreger said.
 
"The crowd was sensational and I thought we played well in the first half."
 
The Falcons beat Tweed Heads convincingly earlier in the season and would be confident of getting one over the Seagulls at home.
 
"We are confident but they will be wanting some payback from last time too," Dreger said.
 
"We are just hoping for a good crowd and we believe we can get the points, but we have to play well."
 
The game kicks off at Sunshine Coast Stadium at 2pm.
