Premier Rugby: Tigers reckon stop them and the spoils will head their way
By LIZ MOORE
After a rollercoaster ride of semi-final performances, Easts are steadying themselves for their biggest game of the year – the grand final against UQ at Ballymore this Sunday.
Flyhalf Jack Frampton said the Tigers were happy to return to their defensive best with some “lethal footwork” from their wingers against Bond on the weekend, winning 28-3 after the disappointing 13-27 loss to UQ the weekend before.
“I think we made a point this weekend to really fix our defence against them and not let them run the ball back like we know they’re good at,” he said of the game against Bond.
