Intrust Shute Shield Rd10: Match Previews

Eastwood v Southern Districts – Live on 7TWO Both Eastwood and Southern Districts head into Saturday’s grand final rematch coming off a loss, but Eastwood coach John Manenti thinks his side can bounce back after failing to capitalise on its chances against Manly. “I didn’t feel we deserved to be behind on the scoreboard, we deserved to be beat, I’m happy to say that, but we didn’t deserve to be that far behind,” Manenti said. Eastwood was dominated by Manly up front, particularly at the set piece, something Souths coach Matt Barr was well aware of. “I thought that there set piece wasn’t as dominant as it usually is. Full credit to Manly, they put them under a lot of pressure. That’s what we’ll try and do this week.” “Our big focus has been on improving our set piece and we’ll need to do that this week against Eastwood, who we know will be keen to bounce back after a loss last week,” Barr told Rugby News.
