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.

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.
