Beasties search for the answers as they host rampant Woodies


Recent history hasn’t been kind to Eastern Suburbs in their record against Eastwood and fresh from a hoodoo breaking victory at Coogee Oval the Beasties are keen to find a way on Saturday at Woollahra Oval.

The last three times that these two combatants have gone head to head the spoils have headed back to TG Millner with the Woodies winning in Round Three and last year’s qualifying final.

Throw into that mix the qualifying final in 2019 and you realise why Easts coach Pauli Taumoepeau is measured about his expectation for the weekend.

“We just don’t have an answer for them at the moment,” Taumoepeau told Rugby News.
