A thrilling matchup awaits this Saturday as the Norths Devils lock horns with the Logan Magpies under the lights at Bishop Park. Devils vs Magpies kicks off at 6:00 p.m.



Norths come off a great effort against the Dolphins at Redcliffe, going down 16-12 at Kayo Stadium.


 


Defence was massive in the heavy rain, Norths forced to make 326 tackles. Backing up another huge defensive effort the previous week against last year’s minor premiers, the Bears, where the Devils conceded only 12.

Manase Kaho and Tesi Niu were the Norths try scorers against the Dolphins. Gerome Burns kicking 2 goals.

“We know we need to be better because this is such a tough competition that you can’t afford to give away possession, especially against a team with the quality of Redcliffe,” Devils coach Dave Elliott said.

“But we know that we had that defensive commitment on Sunday and we want to continue to build that.”

“We’ll get another good test this Saturday night against Souths Logan because we know how dangerous they can be.”
