2020 SHUTE SHIELD PREVIEW: Manly Marlins with Matt McGoldrick

Manly Marlins coach Matt McGoldrick says that a good start and harvesting bonus points when they are on offer will be essential for success in the Covid-19 affected Shute Shield competition.

The Marlins boss believes that seven wins from the 12 games scheduled will have his charges in line to play finals footy once again in 2020.

“Every point is going to be crucial and that means we’ve got to throw in bonus points whether they be from winning or losing when we talk about teams making playoff,” McGoldrick said.
