East Campbelltown Eagles soar to grand finals

All roads lead to Parramatta Stadium as the East Campbelltown Eagles have progressed to another grand final.

The game will be played on Sunday, September 25 kicking off at 12.15pm.

The Eagles played St Mary's at Campbelltown Stadium in the grand final qualifier on Sunday.

The Eagles were off to a flying start when a line break from half Wayde Dunley saw Ben Baker finish off with the try.

Five minutes later a Michael Stevens break again led to Baker getting his second try, Baker scored a hat trick when Stevens kicked across for the Eagles to race into an early 16-0 lead.

The second half started strong with running centre Fusi Toutai crashing over the line and Baker converting the try for a 22-0 lead.

Baker then scored his fourth try to take it to 26-0.

A well placed kick from Baker saw Chris Standing score a try for a 30-0 lead.

St Mary's finally got on the board with a try but Eagles centre Amanono Tovio scored in the corner.

Baker scored his fifth try for the day on the final bell setting a record that hasn't been seen in a final for the Eagles since Ricky Green in the 2001 Eagles Premiership winning team.

The Eagles will now head to Parramatta to take on Mounties team in the 2016 grand final.

Coach Richard Barnes said injured players Mason Talolua, Fusi Toutai and Sean Connor will change the side for the grand final.

“We are really hitting our straps and playing the best footy, but we received some bad injuries to key players so we will have to make some positional changes for next week's Grand Final,” he said.

A supporters bus will be leaving Bradbury Pub from 10.30am on game day, to book contact Daniel Draper on 0425 335 345.
