It took another 19 years for the Seahawks claim a second 1st grade title. After finishing runners up in both 2002 & 2003, Tugun enjoyed success in 2004 by downing Tweed Heads 39-10 in the Gold Coast -Group 18 Grand Final. The competition disbanded at the end of this year and the Seahawks joined the Mixwell Cup and the Gold Coast competition in 2005.
Tugun enjoyed considerable success in the Mixwell A Grade Cup finishing 6th out of 11 teams but often struggled to field teams in Colts and finished second last.
