2021 Shute Shield Season Preview: Warringah with Mike Ruthven

After playing in two straight grand finals, Warringah missed the playoffs in 2020 after a frustrating regular season that saw the Rats finish the year with as many wins as losses.

Club legends Josh Holmes and Sam Ward have now joined former flyhalf Hamish Angus in retirement however coach Mike Ruthven appears confident that his young side are good enough to play finals footy again this season.

Overview with Mike Ruthven:

“It’s all really positive at the moment. We’ve had a really good preseason and there’s a really good atmosphere and energy amongst the group. The boys have certainly worked really hard.

“I think they’ve enjoyed the changes to our preseason, where we didn’t get back together until early January, compared to training before Christmas. That has really freshened everyone up.
