Shute Shield: Batger says Woods can’t afford to relax at any stage against Norths

By MARK CASHMAN

Eastwood coach Ben Batger believes nothing less than an 80-minute performance will see them through to their first Shute Shield grand final since 2015.

The Woodies take on Northern Suburbs on Sunday for the chance to go through to the big dance and the footy narrative this weekend at TG Millner Field has been all about taking nothing for granted.

“To beat Norths we are going to have to switched on for 80 minutes because they have proven all year they are very good at staying in the fight,” Batger said.
