Segeyaro late addition for Devils

Brisbane Broncos player James Segeyaro has been made a late addition to the Devils side playing today at Pizzey Park.

James has had a strong start to his time at the Broncos after scoring a match winning try against reigning premiers Sydney and helping the Bronx to a Round 11 win in New Zealand.

The return of Broncos hooker Andrew McCullough has pushed James to make his Intrust Super Cup Debut for the Norths Devils today.

James will link up with fellow PNG Kumuls representative Nixon Putt who was also added to the team list today after recovering from the flu.

Bronco Herbie Farnworth has been ruled out with a niggling ankle injury and will be replaced by Henry Penn who has be very reliable for the Devils so far in 2019.

The Devils will take on the Burleigh Bears at 4PM today at Pizzey Park.

Three for Frei as Devils shine

Only a few blocks from where his father tormented batsmen, Brendan Frei delivered a hat-trick of his own as the Norths Devils toppled rivals Redcliffe Dolphins 28-16 in their Intrust Super Cup clash at Bishop Park.

Frei’s father Harry was a fast bowler for Queensland, playing from the Toombul club which is a short walk from the Devils’ home ground.

Harry’s sons have excelled in rugby league and Brendan was among the Devils’ best today, grabbing three tries as they held the Dolphins to retain the Kavanagh Cup.

The trophy is in memory of Steve Kavanagh – a former Devils and Dolphins player and coach – and it’s on the line each time these rivals play. There was also a moment of silence before the match to mark the passing of another Devils-Dolphins legend in Peter Randall.

Both men would have enjoyed the early moments of the contest which opened with a try to Redcliffe’s Izaia Perese in the sixth minute when he pounced on a Devils mistake.

But backrower Frei led the fightback, bursting on to a sharp movement from forward Pride Petterson-Robati to halfback Sean O’Sullivan.

That 20th minute try was followed three minutes later by Michael Sio’s try from dummy-half, which pushed the Devils to a 12-6 lead.

But these Devils-Dolphins clashes aren’t usually straight-forward. Frei had to break a 12-all deadlock in the 35th minute when he finished off Luke Pollock’s surge close to the line.

When Frei crossed again in the 51st minute, the Devils had moved to 22-12, cushioned further by Herbie Farnworth’s try in the 68th minute.

The Kavanagh family chose Frei as the player of the match and he was ably supported as the Devils delivered another team performance across the park.

There was plenty for Devils fans to like. Petterson-Robati made his starting debut for the Devils after moving from Melbourne earlier this season. Bullemor made his starting debut at Bishop Park while Oshae Tuiasau and Moses Noovao-McGreal made their home debuts for the season. Brandon Lee was strong in an 80-minute display against his former team.

The Devils moved into the top four with a 9-4 record while the Dolphins slipped further from the eight. They dropped to 10th and now sit four points adrift of eighth spot.

Coach Rohan Smith knows the Devils still have plenty to work on as they prepare for next Sunday’s trip to Burleigh to meet the Bears.

It was a top day for Devils fans.

Earlier, they claimed a win in the Hastings Deering Colts match, 32-14. The Devils showed improvement as they aim to defend their premiership from last season.

The BRL clash between Valleys and Redcliffe went to the Diehards 29-14. The Diehards are the Devils feeder team and plenty of Norths’ Intrust Super Cup squad members featured in today’s win.

Devils unleash eight tries in win

Sean O’Sullivan scored three tries and Herbie Farnworth kicked all eight goals as the Norths Devils unleashed a 48-12 Intrust Super Cup win over Central Queensland Capras in Rockhampton today.

The Devils’ last loss in Rockhampton came in 2010 and they always looked in control even when the scores sat at 6-all just minutes from halftime.

The Capras had enjoyed the majority of field position and possession until O’Sullivan’s first try in the 37th minute sparked a points rush for the Devils.

Halfback O’Sullivan threw a dummy for his second try in the 44th minute before tries to Connor Broadhurst (50th minute), Jack Ahearn (53rd minute) and Troy Dargan (59th minute) speared the Devils to a 36-6 lead.

Paul Ulberg scored a strong individual try in the 73rd minute before O’Sullivan’s 76th minute try gave the Devils their highest score since coach Rohan Smith took over for the 2018 season.

They almost cracked 50 but a final-minute raid broke down against a Capras team that never stopped trying.

Farnworth had opened the scoring in the 14th minute when he caught a pass from Ahearn and he finished the game with 20 points, catapulting him past 100 points for the season.

“It was important that we won because we were disappointed with how we played last week (in a loss to Wynnum Manly),” O’Sullivan said.

“It was good to get out a good 80-minute performance today. In the first 40 minutes, even though we didn’t score much, we set a good platform. Rohan said to make sure that we stuck to our game plan.

“It was a credit to the boys the way that we listened to Ro and kept going with that plan.”

The Devils had good players across the field, defending well in a first half in which the Capras had 24 tackles in the Norths’ 20.

Jamayne Taunoa-Brown and Riley Leota featured in a strong team performance for the Devils, who welcomed back Oshae Tuiasau for his first match since recovering from a knee reconstruction.

The Devils will be pleased with the work of their forwards, including Michael Sio in the starting hooker role while Pride Petterson-Robati continued to show his promise.

The victory pushed the Devils into fifth spot ahead of next Sunday’s showdown with rivals Redcliffe at Bishop Park.

Earlier in the day, the Devils fell to the Capras in their Hastings Deering Colts clash. Sosefo Filipine scored the Devils’ only try in the 6th minute before the Capras ran away with a 40-4 win.

NORTHS DEVILS 48 (Sean O’Sullivan 3, Herbie Farnworth, Connor Broadhurst, Jack Ahearn, Troy Dargan, Paul Ulberg tries, Farnworth 8 goals) d CENTRAL QUEENSLAND CAPRAS 12 (Eli No’ova, Kainoa Gudgeon tries, BJ Aufaga-Toomaga 2 goals) at Browne Park.
