The Byron Bay Red Devils kept their chances of a final’s berth alive last Sunday when they beat the Tweed Coast Raiders 35–26 in round 10 of the NRRRL, playing at home.

The result left both teams on 10 competition points and one win away behind Evans Head (12) who are sitting fifth in the league.

It was the second win on the trot for the Byron Bay side who beat Bilambil 27–8 in round nine.

Next week the Red Devils take on the Kyogle Turkeys who are currently sitting at the bottom of the table before they have to take on the current second-placed team, Ballina.

In reserve grade the Raiders won 32–4.

The Tweed Coast U/18s also had a good win beating the Red Devils for the first time in two years 16–4. The loss left the Red Devils U/18s in second place on the ladder, one win behind Cudgen but with a game in hand.
