GYMPIE Devil's workhorse, Riley McDowall, was celebrating an amazing four-try haul after the Gympie Devils' win against Bribie Island on Sunday.

The Devils got back in the winners circle destroying Bribie Island 66-0.

Coach Kris Kahler said McDowall was the Devils best, but all the players had solid games.

"It is a pretty good effort for a forward to score four tries," Kahler said.

"Everyone played well, we didn't get any injuries or anything."

No injuries are one of the biggest positives to come out of the game for the Devils.

The last two months have been horrible for the side with numerous injuries to key players upsetting their 2012 premiership assault.

Kahler said he knew the Devils would win at the weekend.

He said that it was just a matter of by how much.

"We wanted to win by a lot, for our for and against," Kahler said.

The Devils now have a bye this weekend and are hoping that centre Danny McMah and full-back Nick Swan should be back in the line-up for their next match.

Kahler said debutant hooker Paul Smith was also a positive.

"Smith went well," Kahler said.

"He played 18s as well, they were a bit short and then played the whole game in the top grade."

Kahler said the Devils would now try to get their game going in the right direction for the back end of the season.

"We needed the win," Kahler said.

"Even though we have had a couple of losses, we haven't been playing that bad.

"It has been bad luck with injuries.

"Now we just need to string some more wins together."
