Round 3 Saturday wrap: Wilson gets hat-trick in Devils win over Magpies

Norths Devils winger Georgia Wilson has scored a hat-trick against her old side Souths Logan Magpies to help her side win a fierce XXXX Rivalry Round battle.

Magpies went into half-time 24-14 up, but the Devils continued to press and finished victors.

Wilson said she was very happy with the game.

“I’ve been excited to go up against my old club all week… it was always going to be a tough one,” Wilson said.

“We just had to be patient and we saw space outside and we went for it and scored.

“I just really wanted to get the win tonight.”

Wilson said the Devils first half was “a little bit frantic… we got a little bit excited and really wanted to score tries” but they settled as the game went on.

“Once we became more patient, settled and completed out sets, which was the main aim, it all paid off,” Wilson said.


Wilson said winning against the Magpies in XXXX Rivalry Round made the win that bit sweeter.

“It couldn’t feel any better,” she said.

“I’ll go home, have a nice meal, maybe a glass of wine, being all sophisticated, to celebrate. I’m just so chuffed.

“I’m really proud of all of the girls because we were down a player for 10 minutes of that game… everyone just really stepped up.

“(Annetta-Claudia Nu’uausala) made some good carries, Jocelyn Kelleher was putting in some good kicks, Jada Ferguson put in some good kicks… all of the girls were working hard, making good carries.

“So good to get the win.”

Magpies coach Kimiora Breayley-Nati said it was a tough loss for her side.

“Tough one considering we came out in the first half firing,” Breayley-Nati said.

“But we let it slip in the second half. We just have to stick to the simple things and get all of the little errors out of the way. Do the one per centers right.

“At the end of the day, not doing that cost us.”

Breayley-Nati said a positive to be taken from the game was her side didn’t give up.

“They didn’t give up… that’s the main thing,” Breayley-Nati said.

“They were scoring most of their points on our edges… we focused on not letting them come through us, but they did.

“We’ve still got learning to do… it’s a young bunch. Now we can only move forward.

“Bring on next week.”
