Gympie ladies a quality product

WHILE the Gympie Devils A grade squad put on a show of class for a vocal home crowd at Jack Stokes Oval at the weekend, the ladies’ Devils were equally impressive.

Taking on Cherbourg at last in an exhibition after the initial date for the game fell through, the Gympie ladies were more than up to the task.

Cherbourg showed its experience to win 26-20 but not before being stretched by their Gympie counterparts.

Gympie Rugby League president Scott Dodt said the Gympie ladies had an “excellent” game.

“There were some big girls in the Cherbourg side but the Gympie players stood up and really took to the challenge,” he said. “There’s plenty of interest and talent.”

Gympie trailed 18-6 at half time before fighting back in the second to make a real contest.
