Question time
What is Devonports funding base for this squad?
Three or four southern teams are very strongly financially supported and we all know where that money comes from in each case.
Where does Devonport get the funds to outdo them all?


Good question.....maybe still left over from previous cup run....!!!


The players play for hot dogs on a Thursday night after training. Sometimes with no skin on them

Well done devonport shame you're away again.
I was hoping for a home game.
I was looking forward to a lovely drive up north.
Alas maybe when you win you'll get a final 8 home game and I cruise on up.

The I see of Brayden Mann the more impressed I am. Truly inspirational leader and super talent

If you knew what kind of injury he has been going through the last couple of months, you'd be even more impressed. Literally pushing through the pain every game for his team. Exceptional captain.
