Devils use bye plot next move
THE long weekend is being used by the Gympie Devils rugby league side as a chance to rest and heal niggling injuries, says coach John Greensill.
Greensill said a bye came at an ideal time for the team, fresh on the back of a run of hot victories.
“We have a few niggling injuries so it’s a great way for the boys to rest up before we get stuck into it again,” he said.
The Devils have had a quiet week but will hit up training at full speed next Tuesday.
Greensill said the side had a list of goals to achieve in training.
“We want to work on maintaining our patterns and just revisit a few things from the start of the season,” he said.
The Devils’ main priority now the season’s midway point has been reached is to start beefing up their attack.
The side wants to go on the front foot with the finals looming in the distance.
“We don’t want to just stay doing the same each week,” Greensill said.
“It’s important we take our game to a new level and keep an eye on the finals. The breaking in period for the team has passed.”
Gympie’s premier league side returns next weekend away against Caboolture in a match that will be televised live on local radio.
The game will be an important opportunity to sharpen skills before tackling Caloundra at home the week following.
Presently, the Devils are sharing a lead of the leader board with Caloundra and Greensill said playing on home turf was a big advantage.
“It will be our biggest round of the season so far,” he said.
The match will be played on the same day as the 100 Years of League in Gympie matches at Albert Park, ensuring league fans a mighty serving of action to digest on the sidelines.
“We will have an idea of where we are against Caloundra,” Greensill said.
