Isis to serve devilish dishes
Former greats honoured at the must-win contest
PAST-playing greats of Isis and the Wallaroos will be honoured when the Bundaberg Rugby League round 14 clash between the two teams decides the winner of the Fewquandie-Vea Vea Shield for 2014.
Dan Fewquandie (Childers) and Malcolm Vea Vea (Maryborough) played in the 1970s and 1980s and both made major contributions to their clubs.
Fewquandie was a menacing half-back and Vea Vea was a damaging front-row forward, and both were outstanding in their positions and gave their all during their playing days.
The way Fewquandie
Bill Trevor Isis club president We fried the fish, this week we’re going to have roast Wallaroo and in a few weeks we’ll have stewed seagull
used his skill and determination all those years ago will have to be repeated by the current-day players when Isis hosts Wallaroos Saturday in a must-win game.
After a slow start to the year Isis has built some momentum, and after the A-grade Bundaberg Rugby League competition was turned on its head when Waves Tigers forfeited the rest of the season, there is no such thing as an easy game.
Every team is capable of beating another, and Isis is still hopeful of a third-place finish to the year, being fourth on 16 points behind the Wallaroos on 18.
As well as earning the Fewquandie-Vea Vea Shield, the two competition points are vital.
As an ex-player at the club, Isis president Bill Trevor always keeps a close eye on the players, but after a great win against Brothers a few weeks ago at home, it seems he has been concentrating on the catering.
Trevor said there was a trio of dishes he hoped were going to be served to the rugby league faithful of Childers.
“We fried the fish, this week we’re going to have roast Wallaroo and in a few weeks we’ll have stewed seagull,” Trevor said.
“We are taking this challenge pretty seriously, it will be a pretty hard, brutal game.”
Another cold blast of weather is expected for the weekend and Trevor encouraged everyone to get to the Furnace to give the visitors a warm Childers welcome.
The A-grade game will kick off at 6.30pm and Isis will be tough to beat.
HARD TARGET: Isis’s Aaron Ratcliffe soaks up a tackle from Wests at Salter Oval.
DANGER MAN: Wallaroos Gibson Gela will be a key player for the visitors Saturday night.
