Shute Shield R14: Galloping Greens too good for Woods

10/07/2017
By NSW Waratahs Media unit

It was the home side who drew first blood through outside centre Michael McDougall after a well-placed grubber swept up by Randwick’s Devan Stoltz was turned over and fired across to the other side of the field.

Randwick were next to score through centre Ben Starkey after his courage line was rewarded with a gap big enough to cut through.

The match really came to life in the second half when Wick winger Latu Latunipulu barged his way through the Eastwood defence and over the try line in an impressive solo effort.

Latunipulu’s wing counterpart Tom Collins put on a performance of his own when he stepped past two defenders to run his side’s third try of the match.

Eastwood were not done yet however, as lock Tom Alexander held onto the back of a maul to put more points on the board for the home side.

The visitors put the nail in the Woods’ coffin through an Ed Kennedy crash ball that resulted in a final try for Randwick.
