Young team ready to rock
THE success of the Isis Devils in the A-grade competition of the Bundaberg Rugby League has come at the worst time for the Isis Crushers in the 2014 Spring Cup.
The Crushers play their first game tomorrow against Waves Falcons in Bundaberg, and with plenty of players unavailable for the game because the Devils are marching on in the BRL season, the Crushers know it’s going to be a tough opening few weeks to the season.
Crushers forward coach Greg Collier said there had been a talented young team assembled, and while all was looking good for a few years time when the players matured, this season, even after the first few games, might be tough, and the learning curve would be steep for the young players.
Isis is hosting three rounds of the Spring Cup season, with the first games on September 26 – Isis v Barbarians and Waves Falcons v Turtles.
The second round of games at Childers Showground is on October 25 – Turtles v Barbarians and Isis v Waves Falcons. The last games at Childers will be on November 22 – Waves Falcons v Barbarians and Isis v Turtles.
There are 12 rounds in the Spring Cup, and the leading team at the end of the season goes straight to the grand final on December 12. Teams two and three play in the preliminary final on December 5.
