Cobbo-Ri­ley to stiffen Seag­ulls back line

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

THE ad­di­tion of Curtis Cobbo-Ri­ley to the back­line will make Her­vey Bay Seag­ulls even stronger in their march to the Bund­aberg Rugby League fi­nals.

Cobbo-Ri­ley moved to the Seag­ulls from Norths Devils, and scored a try in his side’s 40-6 win over Isis Devils. Player-coach Tye Inge­brigt­sen said he was ex­cited by the prospect of the for­mer Norths Devil.

“He was re­ally good and has cer­tainly made his case to keep his spot in the side,” Inge­brigt­sen said.

“We had quite a few out but Curtis was out­stand­ing in the cen­tre.

“Kobi Page made his de­but from the bench and got his job done as well.”

The Seag­ulls left side was ex­tremely dom­i­nant, with sec­ond-rower Tyson Wood­man, Inge­brigt­sen and winger Billy Ste­fa­niuk scor­ing five tries be­tween them.

They ran rings around the de­pleted-Devils out­fit, weak­ened by the ab­sence of sev­eral A-graders.

But as the Seag­ulls grow in strength in other parts of the field an in­jury to hooker Kyle Greaves means they have now lost four men in the vi­tal po­si­tion.

“That’s be­come a bit of a con­cern,” he said of his sud­den short­age of hook­ers.

“When we get (Brock) Eldridge back on the right side we’ll be pretty lethal on both sides.”

Seag­ulls face Wests Pan­thers at Sal­ter Oval next Sun­day at 3pm.
