Devils reserves take early lead
GYMPIE Devils rugby league fans have a lot to cheer about this season as years of hardship and disappointment have given way to a major breakthrough for the club.
As the A grade Devils continue their warfare in the trenches for top spot of the Caloundra RSL Cup competition ladder, the Reserve grade boys are also getting in on the action.
Reserve grade coach Greg Rendell was pleased with his team’s effort at the weekend against Nambour, bouncing back after trailing at half time to win 32-28.
An underwhelming first half gave Nambour an early jump on Gympie, allowing the visitors to hit the sheds at half time with a lead of eight points.
Gympie, however, didn’t flinch and regained its composure on the back of strong home town support to mount a courageous comeback.
“We picked up our game after letting Nambour get away on us in the first half, so that was good to see,” Rendell said.
Overall, the Reserve grade Devils are sitting at the top of the competition ladder, sharing the honour with Caloundra.
Dividing the teams on a for-and-against basis, Gympie just has the edge.
Reserve grade plays Maroochydore away this weekend, hopeful of building form ahead of a bigger challenge the weekend after against a determined Caboolture.
