A tag rugby league competition started a month ago in the region and the Red Devils have had three wins from three so far.
The women follow the Red Devils men’s team around and play the opposition clubs that have women league tag teams.
At the moment there are seven teams in the competition.
A gala day was held at Lismore a couple of months ago to introduce the game.
From this day an NRRRL women’s representative league tag team was selected.
Byron Bay Red Devils had three women representing them in May – Tori Maxwell, Anna Toole and Mina Vanary.
The girls’ coach Keegan Isbester was selected as assistant coach.
After the gala day that was held in Lismore the women were a bit nervous for their first game against Ballina.
Taking a lot from the gala day the women came out with a 18–14 win over Ballina.
The following week saw the women with their first home game against Casino.
Anna Toole was a standout getting a hat trick while Daisy Gordon wasn’t too far behind grabbing two. Kelly, Megan and Sarah all crossed over for tries apiece.
Christina Roberts and Casey Donnelly slotted five conversions between them to give the extra points. Final score 42–6.
Last week up against Murwillumbah it was the Red Devils defence and teamwork that kept Murwillumbah without any points.
Captain Shanay Eberlein along with Brie Hannon scored two tries each. Sarah Logan was unlucky only to get one try, while Christina Roberts converted three.
Byron Bay Red Devils women’s league tag had a bye when the boys faced the Mullumbimby Giants last weekend, but will be back against Lower Clarence at home on Sunday July 2. Yeah the girls!
