First win of the season for the Isis Devils at home
The long drought is finally over for the Isis Devils.
After not winning a match for almost a year, which actually came in the finals series last year, they returned to the winners circle with a 32-14 win over Eastern Suburbs at home last Saturday.
Completing their first win in the league this season, it is the first time they have won during the regular season since defeating the same side on July 18 last year.
Four tries in a stand out performance by Jack Rowan was the difference between the two teams.
Talking after the game, captain Peter Grant said it was a relief to break the drought.
“Everyone was really happy. It felt like we’ve won a grand final with the way we celebrated,” Grant said.
Paying credit to all the players in the team, Grant said it has been tough at times as the club suffered big defeats.
“All the boys turn up each week and all have got big hearts,” he said.
“It was good to win on sponsors day for our fans and club.”
Not content with one win, Grant said the team would aim for more in the final three weeks of the season.
Meanwhile the loss to Easts ends their chances of finals, with the Wallaroos to finish fifth this season.
Club president Kevin Grant said the women’s team impressed coaches walking away with their first points of the season.
“Our women’s team have a great chance leading up to the finals, with only three-games to go,” Grant said.
“Our girls team are strong players and the draw last weekend lifted their spirits heading into the finals, next season we could possibly see a further two teams join the women’s league.”
