Premier Rugby: Easts’ Pilz loving life back at Tigerland

By LIZ MOORE

In his second season back at Easts, in-form scrum half Eli Pilz is liking what he sees.

Naming this year’s squad as one of the best he’s been a part of in and outside of club footy, Pilz puts it down to a level between them and coaches who are as “good as it gets”.

“I think just the balance now of old heads and experience, and younger guys coming through and really challenging everyone, keeping everyone on their toes,” 23-year-old Pilz said.

“It shows with the depth across the park now. I think there’s been probably two or three rounds where we’ve gone through and all grades have won their games against other clubs.”
