Reborn Devils to tackle rivals
FOR a side that not long ago was a familiar sight in the bottom reaches of the competition ladder, the Gympie Devils’ rugby league team is enjoying a reversal of fortunes.
As of last weekend, the Devils rose to be joint leaders of the Sunshine Coast competition with Nambour, thanks to a striking 28-18 win over the Kawana Dolphins.
Today, the Devils regroup at home, hoping to consolidate their position at the top of the table against arch rivals Noosa.
Coach John Greensill could not be contacted yesterday but Gympie Rugby League president Scott Dodt said the game was shaping up to be a blockbuster.
“We beat Noosa last time but they have bought a few new players, so I think we will be playing a different team,” he said.
Play gets underway early in the day with an Under 15 match at 10am, followed by C grade at 11am, Under 18 at 12noon, Reserve grade at 1.30pm and the main game at 3pm.
All matches will be played at the Jack Stokes Oval.
