Digby breaks his Coogee Oval drought as Beasties navigate their final frontier


Eastern Suburbs skipper Jack Digby was starting to wonder whether it was him and that hoodoo playing their Battle of the East rivals Randwick was something very real and to be feared.

After all he had travelled to Coogee Oval four times for not much return and as he outlined to Rugby News in the wake of the game most of those games had the same storyline.

You know herculean struggle, not much between the two sides, scores close and then Randwick finish over the top with the crowd at the halfway mark baying for the blood of the visiting side.

Not this time though with Easts grabbing a try to James Donato in a scramble near the try line that saw the visitors nudge ahead 31-22.
