Byron Red Devils trounce Kyogle

After a sluggish start, Byron Bay bounced back in a big way to trounce Kyogle 40-12 in their Northern Rivers Regional Rugby League match at Red Devil Park on Sunday.

The Red Devils held to a tight 16-6 lead at half-time, but cut loose in the second half to run away with the game.

They racked up their 40 points through seven tries from seven players and six goals from Duane Cahill.

Two Devils players, Mick Lambert and Michael Chapman, were given 10 minutes in the sin bin towards the end of the game and they were joined by Kyogle’s Scott Lavelle after punches were thrown by a number of players from both sides.

For coach Nathan Cross it was a pleasing win following the previous week’s loss to Mullumbimby in the local derby.

The Bay reserve grade side had a big 56-22 win with the under 18s losing 32-10.

Byron Shire neighbours, Mullumbimby Giants, continued on their winning way defeating Evans Head 32-10.
