Anxious wait for Ipswich after Gold Coast washout
IPSWICH State High rugby league players and supporters are hoping Wavell loses tonight's Queensland Super 6 match after this afternoon's clash at the Gold Coast was washed out.
Ipswich High were to play Keebra Park in the final round of the competition.
However, the Gold Coast City Council closed the field as the Ipswich High team was about to board the bus.
"It's the emptiest feeling,'' coach Lee Addison said.
"We were ready to go. We looked set.
"But there's nothing we can do about it.
"We're asking if we can have the match replayed.''
To stake a claim as the Super Six champion team, Ipswich needed to beat the undefeated Keebra Park outfit and Wavell has to lose to Marsden tonight.
Ipswich High are currently on seven points compared to Wavell's five.
A Wavell win tonight would lift their for and against average ahead of Ipswich.
Addison is hoping the Ipswich High-Keebra Park match can be rescheduled with a busy school sporting schedule.
"We've officially asked for another date because if we do not play, that will knock us off to third if Wavell beat Marsden tonight,'' he said.
"That game is still going ahead.''
