Easts’ not giving up on top four says star scrumhalf Elijah Pilz

By Liam Cook

Easts’ No.9 Eli Pilz says his side won’t relent in their quest for a final’s birth despite the Tiger’s destiny being largely out of their hands.

“We’ve got two games left, Brothers, bye, and Bond, so the ultimate goal is two from two,” Pilz told Rugby News.

“Super tight competition this year and we’d probably rather it be in our own hands at the moment.”

Despite currently sitting in sixth position, only three points separates Easts and their round sixteen, third placed opponent Brothers.

The Tiger’s valiantly fought back against UQ at St Lucia last week but ultimately fell short in a contest they could ill-afford to lose.

Pilz says his side was bitterly disappointed with the result despite the character they displayed in the second stanza.

“Our performance wasn’t really anywhere near where we believe we should be and everything UQ did we spoke about during the week so there no real surprises there.”
