Shute Shield: Eastwood back on track against Manly but it’s not perfect

By MARK CASHMAN

Eastwood got their season back in some sort of order after their 45-27 win over Manly on Saturday but coach Ben Batger wants his side to show more killer instinct if they want to contend.

The Woods led 24-3 and 37-17 at different stages but let the Marlins back into the contest in what was an open and entertaining affair that delivered 10 tries.

Batger said it was a good victory but he called on his side not to let sides back into games, a habit they have been doing in recent weeks.
