The stark contrast in local league so far in the 2018 season was evident as the Giants beat the Byron Red Devils 32–10 at home last Sunday.

For the Mullum side it was their fourth straight win and a top spot on the ladder (shared with Cudgen and Tweed Coast) while the Devils remain winless at the bottom of the table.

Silky handling from the Mullum side in the sloppy conditions saw them go two converted tries clear in the first ten minutes.

It was simple league played well. Hold onto the ball, run hard up the middle early then go wide to the corners, or put the ball high and chase strongly to force errors.

It all went the way of the Giants. They out scored the visitors six tries (five converted) to two, the tries to Byron coming late in the second half.

Players players were Lindsay Beckett and Matty Ashton.

The Reserves also notched up another win for the season beating the Byron side 14–10. Players Players Ethan Anderson.

Giants take on Casino this weekend, while Byron hosts Cudgen.
