Gold Coast 2 v Newcastle 0

Jason Culina wanted to win this and played like it. In the first half GC played one touch football in possession, 65%, and closed everything down from the Jets.

Newcastle's keeper copped a foot in the face from Shane Smeltz to break his nose and battled on till half time dripping blood.

Both goals in the first half, Culina straight in low and had from the left and James Brown got his first from a 1, 2 from Culina and a great finish.

Michael Bridges and Charlie Miller also only made half way with aggravations to injuries.

Second half was GC stopping Newcastle getting near the goal - apart from one attack where Jess V was taken our and Djubo stopped Matt Thompson twice from short range.
