The Red Devils relax with fans at their home ground after the last game of the 2019 season.

The Byron Bay Red Devils have narrowly missed out on the rugby league finals for 2019 after finishing in sixth place behind Tweed Heads, who went through on a better for-and-against tally. 

Playing at home in the last regular game of the season, the Byron side went down to the Ballina Seagulls 38–16.

The loss meant that Tweed Heads would have gone past them on the competition ladder if they could beat Cudgen.  

When that game ended in a 24–24 draw, both Tweed and Byron were on equal competition points.

But Byron lost the battle for the last finals position as their for-and-against was 13 points behind Tweed.

U/18s

The U/18s Red Devils made it all the way to the preliminary final where they took on Cudgen for a place in the grand final, but were beaten 24–4
