Edmed, Craig and Nawaqanitawase boost Woods, Hemopo off bench for Norths against Souths


Waratahs Tane Edmed and Mark Nawaqanitawase will bolster Eastwood for their crucial Shute Shield clash against Eastern Suburbs at Woollahra Oval on Saturday.

Edmed will be the Woodies’ run on No.10 and Nawaqanitawase will add considerable thrust from the back field at fullback in a side looking to hit back after being rolled at the death by Sydney Uni last weekend in Mudgee.

A slight hamstring strain to Chris Bell has meant that coach Ben Batger hasn’t had to decide which flyhalf he starts the game with and Edmed will get some critical minutes in what should be a robust encounter.

Batger has also been able to welcome back Ed Craig into his side at hooker after his time with the Melbourne Rebels.
