2024 Shute Shield Season Preview: Eastwood

After falling short in a second straight preliminary final, Eastwood farewelled coach Ben Batger and appointed successful colts mentor Dave Telfer as his replacement.

Telfer has lost six regular first graders from last year's squad but has recruited well and seems confident those new players and the young talent pushing through from colts can help the Woodies extend their season by an extra week in 2024.

Overview with Dave Telfer: 

“We’ve been really happy with our preseason,” Telfer told Rugby News.  

“We took a squad of 46 players up to Brisbane to play GPS a few weeks ago and we also had an opposed session against Norths (Brisbane) while we were there.  

“It was a good experience and I think the boys enjoyed training and playing against someone else after a long summer.
