Easts fall just short against Norths

A scintillating display from fullback Javarn White has helped propel the Norths Devils to a 34-28 victory over Easts Tigers in a see-sawing clash at Langlands Park on Saturday afternoon.

The Devils' speedster was at his slippery best, crossing for two tries and making a number of breaks in an eye-catching performance.

The win was Norths' third on the trot, while Easts assistant coach Craig Ingebrigtsen was again left to lament his side's inability to land that killer punch with the result in the balance.
