CAS: Waverley credit defence after final-play victory over Cranbrook

Despite conceding 26 points to Cranbrook, Waverley believe it was defence that got them over the line in a thrilling 28-26 victory in the Eastern Suburbs derby on the opening weekend of the CAS season. 

Cranbrook led 26-11 in the second half of the round one clash, before Waverley fought back, eventually kicking a drop goal well after the 70th minute to secure a famous Queens Park victory. 

“It was quite an even contest but our defence kept us in it,” Waverley assistant coach Lachlan Drew-Morris told Rugby News.
