Seagulls blown off park by Waves Tigers

LEAGUE: A third-minute penalty goal handed Hervey Bay Seagulls a shock early lead against league-leading Waves Tigers, but it lasted just three minutes before the team was steamrolled at Stafford Park.

Former Seagulls flyer Billy Stefaniuk and Trent Seeds each scored three tries as the Tigers ran in 12 tries to two in the 68-12 win.

Scott Carter-Lowe and Tiko Hooped scored tries for the home side, but it was not enough to challenge Waves.
