Devils chase double win

ISIS Devils are poised to claim minor premierships in both the Senior and League 11’s Bundaberg Rugby League competitions and claim the coveted Club championship trophy.

Despite not having an Under-18s team Isis’ performance in senior and league 11s competitions has been enough to secure the lead in the Club championship accumulative point tally.

Senior coach David Jones said the desire to win the trophy for the first time in the club’s history would put an extra spring in the step of Devils taking the field this weekend in the last round of competition.

“There’s a lot on the line for all the teams involved and the guys will be out there gunning hard,” he said.

“We want to make Childers proud and give our supporters something to cheer about.”

The League 11’s team has already taken minor premiership honours sitting four points ahead of Wests with 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.

Jones said the loyalty and passion of players was the key to the teams’ success with players from Childers, Bundaberg, Gayndah, Cherbourg and Biggenden.

“As far as our talent goes it’s a mixed bag,” he said.

“We’ve got a great bunch of passionate footballers from different areas and back grounds, some of whom travel up to two hours to train and they’re all proud to wear the colours.”

Isis Devils president Bill Trevor said Jones and League 11’s coach Kelly Ryan had engineered the success with a tireless work ethic and tough-love leadership.

“They’ve put in a big effort and it’s paid off on the field,” he said.

Trevor identified the Isis Devils commitee as playing a vital role in the club’s prosperity.

“We’re lucky to have a group of passionate people who give their time,” he said.

Isis will take on Easts 6.30pm tomorow at Salter Oval.
