Sunshine Coast Falcons have had the best start in the Queensland Cup since 2011, notching 13 consecutive victories.

The Falcons brushed Tweed-Heads 36-0 at Piggabeen Sports Complex last Sunday.

Despite the Falcons flawless start to the competition, coach Eric Smith believes the side is yet to reach full flight.

"There's plenty of things we want to be better at, even though we won (against Tweed) the boys were a little bit disappointed in the sheds after the game."

Smith has dismissed the theory the Falcons will need to eventually lose a match in order to go onto win the premiership.

"If we play to our potential we give ourselves the chance to win every week," he said.

The Falcons face a red-hot Wynnum-Manly Seagulls outfit in a top of the table showdown at Kougari Oval on Sunday afternoon.

Smith says the Falcons are embracing the challenge and expects the clash to be played at a finals-like intensity.

"They (Wynnum) are going to be there or abouts at the back-end of the year, they've been in outstanding form," he said.
