Another bonus point win by Eastwood against Parramatta this weekend has seen them join Southern Districts at the top of the Shute Shield table. Although the Rebels are undefeated in 2013, the Woodies’ six bonus points mean they join Souths on top with 26 points, six points clear of third-placed Manly.
After scoring their first try out at Merrylands on Saturday, Eastwood didn’t take a backward step and put the Two Blues away with a comfortable 47-18 win, with some great running rugby.
In the ABC game of the week, a strong crowd braved the less then favourable conditions at Manly Oval to cheer home the Marlins over local rivals Warringah.
Elsewhere in Round 6, Sydney University downed Northern Suburbs under lights on Friday night, Randwick notched up a superb bonus-point win over Penrith and West Harbour held on to seventh spot thanks to a one-point win over Eastern Suburbs.
