Devils look set to claim double
ISIS Devils are poised to claim minor premierships in both the Senior and League 11s Bundaberg Rugby League competitions after a dominant year at the Furnace.
The League 11s team has already claimed the minor premiership.
It sits four points ahead of Wests with only one game remaining.
A win against Easts this weekend would break the senior side’s tie with Hervey Bay and claim the club double minor premiership honours.
President Bill Trevor said senior coach David Jones and League 11s coach Kelly Ryan had engineered the club’s success with a tireless work ethic and a tough-love style of leadership.
“They’ve put in a big effort and it’s paid off on the field,” he said.
Trevor identified the recruitment of backs Lyal Darby and Barry Blackman as playing a crucial role in the senior team.
“It’s added an awful lot of speed to the backline and they’re tireless tacklers,” he said.
“They play with considerable skill and a whole lot of ticker.”
Trevor was pleased by the success of his teams but said celebrations would be reserved until the club claims a premiership.
“It’s not a grand final win but it’s nice and it’s an indication we are on our way,” he said.
