THE Fraser Coast derby is the highlight of Bundaberg Rugby League's second round.

The George Baumann Memorial Shield is up for grabs as Wallaroos and Hervey Bay Seagulls play for the first time this year, while Isis Devils play their first A-grade game of the season.

BRL approved limited interchange earlier this week, and today's games will be the first opportunity to see how that affects each team's squads and playing style.

You can follow live updates below.

ISIS DEVILS v WAVES TIGERS at 4.30pm

The Devils have lost a number of older and more experienced players but that does not faze coach Paul Barritt.

"Hopefully some of our blokes get an opportunity though and have a chance to shine," he said.

Full preview here.

WALLAROOS v HERVEY BAY SEAGULLS at 6.30pm

One Fraser Coast team will leave Eskdale Park with their first win for season 2016.

The Seagulls start favourites given their recent success but the home ground advantage could provide Wallaroos an extra boost.

TOMORROW: PAST BROTHERS v EASTS MAGPIES at 3.30pm

Past Brothers have recovered from an injury crisis ahead of their first game at Brothers Sports Complex.

Easts, meanwhile, lost their opening-round game clash with Waves Tigers and will be desparate for success/
