Shute Shield: Randwick Too Good for Easts in Derby Clash

by Jim Davis - Randwick outplayed Eastern Suburbs in the much anticipated ABC TV game at Woollahra Oval running out winners 33 to 10 with a 4 tries to one bonus result. In a match preceded by some verbal shots from both camps and heightened by the move of Seilala Lam and Keith Mesima from the ‘Wicks to Easts, it was a game that had supporters of both clubs licking their lips. Ball control was a major let down for Eastern Suburbs with 22 turnovers to Randwick’s 10, often giving possession away in attacking positions in the Myrtle Greens’ half. The first 20 minutes was an arm wrestle with hard hitting defence from both sides then, in the 23rd minute, a good palm-off run by new recruit Liam Windon close to the Easts line, saw Randwick score the first of its tries.   [caption id="attachment_8857" align="alignright
