Dysart hungry for more

THERE is a lot at stake for the Dysart Bulls and Peak Downs Pirates who will go head-to-head in tomorrow night’s Central Highlands major semi-final.

On offer is the chance to host this year’s grand final on September 10, and book their place on the playing card.

Having already secured the minor premiership, the Dysart club is hunting for more, and a win against the Pirates tomorrow will bring them that step closer to the season’s ultimate prize – a premiership title.

The Pirates are the only team to dent the Bulls near immaculate record this season. However that’s all water under the bridge for Dysart coach Bill Devine.

“We had our wake-up call from Tieri (Pirates) and learnt from it,” Devine told the Central Queensland News earlier this month.

“They (Bulls) are not overly confident.

“As long as they want it bad enough, they’ll be right.

“This is not the sort of opportunity we’re going to let pass us by.”
