Bears fortune turned by new level of intensity

Last week’s 36-0 upset over the North Devils may have just been the turning point for the UAA Burleigh Bears Intrust Super Cup season.

Coming off a strong win against the Papa New Guinea Hunters on Anzac Day, followed by a week off, seemed to work all too well for the Bears.

“We came back to training that week with a bit more intensity and energy that really rejuvenated the playing group,” Bears utility Jeff Lynch said.

It’s a level of intensity and energy Lynch said was all too familiar.

“In the sheds before we ran out onto the field against the Devils it honestly felt like we were the 2019 Bears again,” he said.

It hasn’t been the textbook start to the season that the Bears were hoping for, filled with an array of injuries and three easily reverted losses.

“It was like we were trying too hard and trying to force those new combinations with our playing group,” Lynch said.

“The PNG game where we got through 60 minutes with no bench, we bonded over that and grew from that experience as a team.”

For Lynch, he wants to continue that winning mentality this weekend against the Ipswich Jets.

“It’s all about doing those one percenters that we weren’t doing in the first couple of weeks.”

Despite the Jets only winning 2 games this season, Lynch said he’s not taking Ipswich lightly.

“We’ve got a pretty good record against the Jets but we can’t walk in there thinking it’s just going to happen for us.

“We need to have the same energy and the same focus that we have had in recent weeks and treat it like we are the underdogs again.”
