Easts Record First Up Win in the Pre-Season

On a warm Saturday afternoon at Granville Park, Merrylands, Easts have recorded a first up win against the Parramatta "Two Blues". The Sydney Shute Shied side fielded a combined 2nd/3rd grade side against the young Easts outfit who never looked troubled. The final score 36-19 doesn't really tell the picture of the dominance exerted by the Easts forward pack. Coach Tim Cornforth, while not getting carried away with the victory, has taken a lot of positives out of the game but also noting where improvements are needed before the team come up against tougher opposition.
