Look who's back at the Devils

CHILDERS Devils will field only three teams in this year’s ju­nior rugby league com­pe­ti­tions.

The Devils held their sign-on days last week­end in an ef­fort to con­firm num­bers and teams ahead of the sea­son.

Pres­i­dent Scott Tom­lin­son said the move was de­signed to give play­ers in age groups that wouldn’t field sides an op­por­tu­nity to trial at other clubs.

He said the club would run teams in un­der-7s, 8s and 11s, but he sought at least three or four more play­ers for each team.

“We’ve lost quite a few kids, but we have a few there,” Tom­lin­son said.

“I knew it would be a strug­gle as a lot of peo­ple have been turned off for what­ever rea­son.

“In terms of those groups we’ll run, we’ve got a few peo­ple say­ing they’ll play, but we need to get them signed up.”

Tom­lin­son said it was ur­gent play­ers signed as the club had to or­der play­ing kits and equip­ment.

“I don’t want to be caught un­awares,” Tom­lin­son said.

“QRL (Queens­land Rugby League) in­sur­ance has to be paid by the 28th, but we’ve got a lot to do be­tween now and then.”
