Hot competition for top grade spots

Last year's premiers, the Byron Bay Red Devils, have commenced training for the 2009 season.

Training is held at the Byron Bay Rugby League Grounds at 7pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The club is looking forward to another successful year, with a number of quality players added to last year's squad.

Competition is bound to be hot for first grade positions, which augers well for the reserve grade side.

There was a good turnout for the first run of the season, with close to 40 players taking part in the first session. Any players who are new to the area are more than welcome at both a senior and under 18s level. Also, anybody interested in helping with administration of the club would also be made welcome.

The coaches for the year are the same as last year, headed up by first grade coach Nathan Cross, with reserves being coached by Rupert Worth and under 18s by Jason Keevers.

The Devils will be playing two trials under the new lights in March, with the season proper commencing the week after Easter.
