Easts too slick for pride
Easts Tigers made it back-to-back wins with a 42-12 triumph over the Northern Pride at home.
Five tries to one in the first half set up the emphatic victory.
Young Storm halfback Brodie Croft was again in fine touch, producing a 40-20 kick to start the second half before running in the final try of the game with a minute to play.
The standout performer on the day was prop Dean Britt, who came up with a brilliant individual effort to score Easts second try of the game after nine minutes.
“He got through a power of work and was very good in his defence,” Tigers coach Scott Sipple said.
“Dean had that intimidation factor and a lot of carries, that has probably been his best few games in row.”
Easts now face a tough road trip when they head to Townsville to take on the Blackhawks this Saturday.
Easts Tigers 42 (Gerard McCallum 2 tries and penalty try, Dean Britt, Matt Zgrajewski, Conor Carey, Brodie Croft tries; Billy Walters 7 goals) def Northern Pride 12 (Khan Ahwang 2 tries; Khan Ahwang 2 goals) at Suzuki Stadium, Langlands Park.
