Sydney Uni 22-12 Eastern Suburbs
Two tries to Waratahs No.9 Jake Gordon proved the difference for Sydney Uni as they moved a step closer to a top three finish after a 22-12 win over Easts at Woollahra.
Gordon scored twice in the first half, before Rohan O’Regan added the Students third try to give the visitors a 19-0 lead.
Easts scored twice in the second half to add some respectability to the scoreboard and stopped Uni from scoring a fourth try and picking up what could be an all important bonus point in the coming weeks.
Despite the win, Uni remain in fourth spot while Easts are now a point behind Gordon in sixth place.
