Parramatta 22-19 Eastwood: Two Blues not surprised by result

Parramatta may have caused the upset of the season on Saturday, beating reigning premiers Eastwood 22-19 to claim their first win of the season. However Two Blues coach Paul Hardwick wasn't overly surprised. “We’ll win this weekend,” Hardwick told Rugby News late last week before his side kicked a 79th minute penalty goal to seal a moral boosting win over the Woodies. “We are a new team with a new coaching staff, so it always takes a few weeks and in some cases a few months to come together and get those combinations right,” Hardwick said after the win. “We’ve had a few close losses recently and I could see the improvement in those performances as the combinations began to gel. “There was a touch of optimism in that comment, but I was pretty confident that a win wasn't too far away,” he added. On “Back to Parra Day” at Merrylands, Eastwood caught the home side napping in the second minute as Tim Williams crossed out wide to open the scoring for the visitors.
