2021 Shute Shield Season Preview: Sydney Uni with Rob Taylor

After falling short on the opening weekend of the finals against Norths last year, Sydney Uni have convinced two time premiership winning coach Rob Taylor to return from the UK to coach the Students in 2021.

Taylor knows exactly how to get the best out of University and inherits a playing squad with a chip on their collective shoulders after a disappointing season last year.

Overview with Rob Taylor:

“We’re all just excited to play some rugby again. It feels as though this has been a really long, drawn out preseason and I think we’re in to week 12 or 13 now since starting in January,” Taylor said.

"It’s great to be back. It feels like home so it’s a very comfortable environment to return to and it’s a really special place. We’ve got a really supportive board, coaches, staff, supporters, players.

“I now properly understand why so many players want to come back and play for Uni when they get a chance. Everyone is really aspirational and dedicated and it’s a great environment to be a part of.
