New Devil seeks Nundah win

New signing Bryce Donovan has come to Norths Devils with a simple goal – he wants to win a game at Nundah.

He’s had two previous attempts – both in a Redcliffe jersey when the Devils rushed together a series of tries to topple their northern neighbours.

Those wins gave Donovan a taste of the style of football that helped to lure him to the Devils.

“There is a lot more shifting of the ball here,” Donovan said.

“Players are allowed to back what they see. It doesn’t matter what tackle it is. We have a licence to have a crack if we see something and that makes it fun to play.”

Donovan, 24, featured in the halves in the Dolphins’ grand final victory in 2018 and he took over captaincy of the team last year when Cameron Cullen was injured in the pre-season.

But he admits he struggled for consistency in 2019 as the Dolphins had to mount a late rush to qualify for the finals after an indifferent start to the year.

“Last year didn’t go as planned for me but it was a good learning experience,” Donovan said.

“I’m much better for that experience and this is the best I’ve ever felt in a pre-season.

“I’m really happy being here at Norths. My first goal is to make the team. That’s the first step. Then I’d like to play every game possible. I want to play good footy and be consistent.

“And, I wouldn’t mind winning a game here. It’s not been a good ground for me.”

Donovan has arrived at the Devils hoping to revive the NRL ambitions that have been with him for more than a decade.

He’s aware of the Devils’ record for producing NRL players, noting the many stars whose names appear in Norths’ list of capped players.

Donovan first played football as a five-year-old for the Waratah Mayfield Cheetahs before moving to Wests Newcastle.

He was inspired by his father Darren, who was a highly regarded local player before injury affected his career.

Donovan was signed into the Newcastle Knights system as a 14-year-old, playing Under 20s and NSW Cup for the Knights before moving to Redcliffe.

His family, including younger brother Chayce, still live in Newcastle. Donovan and his wife Jessica visited them for Christmas.

“I definitely still have NRL ambitions and I’ve come to a club that has had some fair players over the years,” Donovan said.

“I know that I have to work hard to do that.”

Donovan has some familiar faces around him at Norths.

He has played previously with Carne Doyle-Manga and Tony Tomusa while featuring in a representative team with hooker Calum Gahan.

“There’s a good feel around the club. I’m really looking forward to the season,” Donovan said.

Devils return for pre-season training

Norths’ 2020 campaign begins at Bishop Park tonight with a burst of pre-season training to welcome some familiar and new faces into the Devils’ fold.

The core group that delivered the Devils’ first Intrust Super Cup finals berth in seven years will return for a pre-season schedule that opens with all grades tonight, tomorrow and Friday.

This group will begin afresh, realising the progress of the last two seasons will not guarantee success when the 2020 season begins.

The Devils will welcome recruits Bryce Donovan and Tony Tomusa while popular forward Carne Doyle-Manga returns to Bishop Park after a season in the UK.

Quality prop Jamayne Taunoa-Brown has taken up a pre-season contract with the New Zealand Warriors. His return to Bishop Park will be determined by his pre-season work in Auckland.

Donovan will boost the halves stocks following the departure of Bronco Troy Dargan, who signed with South Sydney.

Donovan captained Redcliffe in 2019 after figuring in the 2018 premiership victory, enhancing his reputation as a quality Intrust Super Cup player as the Dolphins recovered from a slow start to make the finals.

Tomusa played with Donovan at the Dolpins in 2018, showing his speed as an outside back before he signed with a French club.

“We’ve added some players in the off-season but there is a lot of continuity in the group which is a positive for us,” Devils coach Rohan Smith said.

“We’ve got a lot of existing relationships among the group and we have an understanding about each other so we can hit the ground running.

“But this is a new season that we’re preparing for. It will be different to last season so we’re looking forward to starting again.”

With the core of the senior squad intact from last season including 2019 skipper Jack Ahearn, the Devils are also looking forward to Norths junior Hiale Roycroft, Harry Freebairn and Jay Gallagher continuing their development at the club while Stedman Lefau returns to Bishop Park after missing part of last season.

“We’ll be training as a club across these first three days which is always an exciting time to watch the grades come together,” Smith said.

The Devils’ first pre-season matches are scheduled for February ahead of the start of the season in March. The draws for the new season are yet to be released.
