Batger half-time spray does the trick as Woods negotiate road trip to Woollahra

By MARK CASHMAN

You would think that Eastwood coach Ben Batger would come away from a pretty handy victory over Eastern Suburbs at Woollahra Oval with a smile on his face but that was far from the case.

Wins are a lot better than the alternative, particularly at this time of the Shute Shield season, but Batger put on his big picture goggles when he spoke to Rugby News in the wake of the 42-28 victory.

“The team certainly didn’t make it easy on themselves,” Batger said.

“We’re just a bit hot and cold at the moment and if we are to compete with the Sydney Unis and the other big teams in this competition we’ve just got to find some sort of consistency.
