Norths Devils RLFC Announces Red Rock Recruitment U17 Head Coach & Train-On Squads for the 2024 Cyril Connell Challenge

Exciting Times for Young Talent in the Northern Districts!

The Norths Devils RLFC is delighted to welcome back Shayne Boyd as the Head Coach for the Red Rock Recruitment U17 Men. To one generation, he’s remembered as Shayne Boyd, the former Balmain and Penrith player from 1991 to 1993. To another, he’s “Tanah Boyd’s dad.” But within the Devils family, Shayne Boyd is recognised for his coaching prowess and the invaluable knowledge he imparts to the rising generation of rugby league talent.

Boyd, who served as the U21 Men’s Colts coach in 2023 and the U18 Men’s coach in 2022, is no stranger to the Devils’ coaching ranks. His return brings with it a wealth of experience and a deep understanding of the game.

As Head Coach for the Red Rock Recruitment U17s, Boyd’s role extends beyond teaching the intricacies of the game. He is a mentor who guides these young men in mastering the sport and embracing the values and principles that define a Devil.

The Norths Devils Rugby League Football Club is proud to announce the 47 players who have earned their place in the pre-season train-on program. These individuals will vie for a spot in the top 30 of the Red Rock Recruitment Devils U17 team, set to compete in the forthcoming 2024 Cyril Connell Challenge.

The club was impressed to see 92 young players, each eager to showcase their skills. The organisers appreciated the players’ dedication and respect.

A Heartfelt “Thank You” to Parents

The club would like to thank the parents and guardians who will continue to stand by these young athletes throughout the selection process. Your unwavering support and encouragement serve as the foundation for the players’ journey toward potential success. We acknowledge the sacrifices you’ve made and the unwavering dedication you’ve shown in nurturing the aspirations of your rugby league stars. Your role in this exciting journey is deeply valued.

We encourage you to continue honing your skills, participating in school and community rugby league, and nurturing your passion for the sport.
