Premier Rugby: Tigers keen to show their title worthiness when they take on Bullsharks

By LIZ MOORE

Recovering from only their second loss of the season in the major semi-final to UQ, Easts are ready to take on Bond, the only other team who’s beaten them this season.

The knockout preliminary final at Ballymore on Sunday is shaping up to be a top contest, with Easts prop Rhys van Nek sure his side can answer the questions they left on the field in their 22-32 loss to Bond in the fifth round of the competition.

“It’s worked out well for us because we know we’re a lot better team than we showed them the first time,” van Nek said.
