After a first round bye the Byron Bay Red Devils kicked off there season proper with a comprehensive 42–10 win against Evans Head running in eight tries to two.
It gave the club wins in all four grades after the U/18s won 54–0, the ladies league tag team got up 28–0 and the reserves won in a tight one 22–18.
Byron young gun Kyan Laurie backed up from the U/18s and was first over the chalk running on to a perfectly timed pass provided by captain coach and 2010 Dally M medallist Todd Carney.
Carney impressed throughout the game with strong defence and running some great angles in attack.
U/18s coach Mitchell Krause joined him in the try scoring department adding two for the half.
Front row Dylan Montgomery then brought the crowd to their feet with a bulking run somewhat similar to a tenpin bowling ball hitting the pins.
Carney converted all four tries so the Devils went to the shed at the break with a 24–4 lead.
The further the game progressed the more comfortable the Bay looked in attack. Mitchell Krause was the first to trouble the scoreboard, shrugging off tackles to complete his hat trick. Further tries went to wingers Gabe Belcher and Conner Wilson while centre Daniel Gibson completed the scoring spree.
Evans Head got a late try right on fulltime but were comprehensively outplayed by a classier Byron outfit.
Next week the bar will be lifted when the Devils face off against last year’s premiers Tweed Coast. The four grades of action commence at noon on Saturday at Red Devil Park.
