Ah Yek and Langbridge relieved after Norths’ long awaited first win of 2022

By Liam Cook

Norths’ much-anticipated first victory of the season against Easts last weekend was building for some time according to young Eagles’ Ryan Ah Yek and Harry Langbridge.

“Everyone was pretty happy with it. It was quite a relief to get one and we had a reasonably big night to celebrate that,” Langbridge told Rugby News.

“Two weeks ago, we nearly beat Brothers. We had them there for a bit and then towards the back end of the game we let go and they took it but it gave us a lot of confidence heading into last week’s game against Easts,” Ah Yek said.

After one draw and ten losses for the season prior to last week’s win, it would have been understandable if the young Norths’ outfit put the cue in the rack for season 2022.

However young talent’s Ah Yek and Langbridge say they were more determined than ever to secure a win against Easts and they now want to go on with it.
