2020 SHUTE SHIELD PREVIEW: Penrith Emus with John Muggleton

Penrith start the 2020 Shute Shield season with a tough run of games that includes a bye in round one, Southern Districts, Northern Suburbs, Sydney Uni and Randwick.

No easy task but they are hoping to take the learnings from that “month from hell” and play some winning footy in the back end of the season.

Whether that happens or not remains to be seen but the Emus are working hard to get it all together in 2020 to underline their credentials for inclusion in the 2021 Shute Shield.

Rugby News caught up with Emus head coach JOHN MUGGLETON as kick off looms.

WHAT LIES AHEAD:
We are all aware of the task that we have playing in the Shute Shield this year and all at the club and rugby in the west of Sydney want to make this thing a real goer.

So it’s going to be a long season of improvement and development.
