Isis to serve dev­il­ish dishes

For­mer greats hon­oured at the must-win con­test

Isis Town and Country - - SPORT -

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.
