2020 SHUTE SHIELD PREVIEW: Randwick with Ben McCormack
Randwick missed out on the finals last year and went through a major shake up that saw Ben McCormack come in as first grade boss and Wicks legend Morgan Turinui sitting in as the new club coach and sounding board.
A welter of Sevens stars have joined the club looking to get some footy under their belt as the world series lies fallow for the rest of the year and it’s McCormack’s job to get all the pieces to fit together and wins some footy games.
There’s also the task of bringing through many of their good colts from the past couple of years and making sure all things run smoothly on and off the field.
Maurice Longbottom is the most intriguing test case from the sevens recruits - he hasn’t played 15s before but is an amazing football athlete and if he is used well could be a Galloping Greens game breaker in the Shute Shield.
Rugby News spoke to BEN MCCORMACK earlier this week.
WHAT LIES AHEAD:
I reckon I could make a lot of money if I knew how this season is going to pan out.
At footy it’s all business as we look to improve going into Week One against the unknown team that is the Newcastle Wildfires and all the things that go with that.
