Isis Town and Country - - Front Page - By JODIE DIXON

THIS year the Isis Devils Women’s team started with girls trav­el­ling from all over the dis­trict as far as Cher­bourg, Mary­bor­ough, Her­vey Bay, Bau­ple, and Biggen­den along with Childers lo­cals.

Six of the women from the team were se­lected to for Bund­aberg Rep side.

For some of these ladies, it was their first time as a rep. The play­ers that made up the women’s team were Jess Neil, Lib­erty Coombes, Sopha Fisher, Me­gan Menchinn, Sheree Jewess and Cindy Nof­fke.

Sheree Jewess was se­lected from the rep side to play for the cen­tral di­vi­sion rep­re­sen­ta­tive team.

The Cen­tral Crows is the team name. The ladies train twice a week and are work­ing hard and im­prov­ing ev­ery week.

For many of the ladies, they have never played rugby league.

It’s the start of the sea­son and the de­ter­mi­na­tion from these ladies will put them in for a good chance of win­ning the pre­mier­ship.

Coach, Don Cor­ri­gan said they are strug­gling for player num­bers for A-grade.

“The play­ers we have are putting in a Her­culean ef­fort ev­ery week,”

“Many of our play­ers are play­ing above and be­yond ex­pec­ta­tions,”

Last week­end saw the Devils go down to Wal­la­roos at Mary­bor­ough, they held them off, for the first 20 min­utes.

It was a top ef­fort, con­sid­er­ing the Devils were with­out sev­eral play­ers.

This Satur­day the team will travel to Her­vey Bay to tackle the top team.

“We will let them know they are in a game,” coach said.

On June, 4 the Devils will host Broth­ers at the Childers show­ground in A-grade and Women’s.

In­clud­ing the Wal­la­roos play­ing Mary­bor­ough Broth­ers in re­serve grade.

Any­body wish­ing to play can come to train­ing on Tues­day or Thurs­day evening from 6pm.

Isis Devils will host a Bare­foot Bowls Day at the Isis Club on Churchill St, May 28 from 9.30am
