Isis Devils re­main win­less with strug­gle over num­bers

Isis Town and Country - - Sport - By SHANE JONES

WESTERN Suburbs con­tin­ues to be one of the in-form teams in the Bund­aberg Rugby League.

The team smashed a de­pleted Isis Devils 56-10 on Satur­day.

With just 14 play­ers, Isis strug­gled to main­tain its in­ten­sity as the Pan­thers se­cured their third straight win.

Two tries to Robert Telfer, Wil­liam Na­gas and Tyson Whale­boat set up the win..

While the Pan­thers’ at­tack was im­pres­sive, coach Nathan Tan­ner said the de­fence was even bet­ter.

“We worked all week on de­fence and a kick-and-chase strat­egy,” he said.

“It worked pretty well against Isis. So I’m happy with that.”

With the chance to give more play­ers some game time, Tan­ner was pleased with the depth of his team.

“Josh Gar­den didn’t play with an an­kle in­jury and we had Richard Na­gas on the bench to give him a rest,” he said.

“Our cover play­ers Danny Clancy and Be­van Page re­ally stood up and played well.”

With Her­vey Bay com­ing up this week­end at Stafford Park, the Pan­thers know they will need to pre­pare well.

“I’ve coached Seag­ulls be­fore and they love play­ing in front of their home crowd,” Tan­ner said.

“We need to stay struc­tured and stick to­gether.”

Isis will aim for its first win of the sea­son against East­ern Suburbs at Sal­ter Oval on Sun­day.

The Mag­pies drew 18-all with the Wal­la­roos.
