Gympie Devils aim for second place

ANOTHER win by the Gympie Devils at home tomorrow will cement second place on the Sunshine Coast/Gympie Rugby League ladder.

Coach John Greensil is hoping for another dominant display by the blue and golds this weekend after a return to form last Saturday against Nambour. He said the Devils are nearly at full strength with the only injury being in-form prop forward Brad English.

English broke his hand in last week’s match and should be out for four weeks.

Barry Berrigan will return to the side tomorrow along with Kiwi Ray Ione. Greensil wants his team to consolidate on last week’s win and keep their physical dominance over the opposition.

“We need to get our big forwards controlling the ruck and dominating,” Greensil said.

“That will give out backs a free reign out wide,” he said.

The match kicks off at 3pm but Greensil urged spectators to spend the day at football and take in the junior matches that start from 9am.

The Devils have opened a new bar on the hill on the opposite side to the clubhouse which has been popular with patrons.
