Hospital Cup: Sunnybank hold off a late surge from Easts for upset win

By TOM PRIMMER

Saturday afternoon saw Sunnybank claim an upset 24-27 victory over reigning premiers Easts in what was an enthralling contest at David Wilson Field.

Momentum ebbed and flowed for much of the afternoon, with the Bankers eventually holding out a late attacking charge by the Tigers to secure a boilover Round 1 victory.

The win sees the Dragons claim the seventh annual Rick Tyrrell Cup, as both clubs came together to campaign for mental health in the rugby community.
