As we embark on the pilgrimage to the Central West, home of the Cowra Eagles for Round 4 of the competition.
A quick trip down memory lane to 30th June 2018 where Eastwood snatched a late victory 29 - 22, featuring just 4 of this week's 1st Grade starting lineup and no surprise, they feature in the spine of the team (Nick Duffy, Angus Sinclair, Harry Burey & Nathan Russell), while Sam Kitchen and Garry Bautz who also featured will line up in 2nd Grade.
4 Years on and Norths return to Cowra off the back of 3 bonus point wins and sole ladder leaders, as the hunter becomes the hunted. Meanwhile, after bouncing back from a round 1 loss Eastwood have collected 2 wins to sit mid-table.
The two proud clubs have shared a great rivalry over the past 5 seasons, with Norths claiming 7 wins from the last 10 encounters.
Having missed last week's match due to covid protocols, Norths Fijian Thor Apolosi Ranawai will return to the front row and having bagged a try in rounds 1 and 2, will be looking to continue his strong start to the year.
Covid protocols also claimed Seb Cameron last week, who will return to the right-wing and last week's debutant Luke Ryan will shift back to 2nd Grade.
