2022 Shute Shield Season Preview: Northern Suburbs

Norths were one of three standout teams in last year’s shortened season, but unlike Sydney Uni and Easts, they’ve retained the vast majority of their squad and coaching group heading into 2022.

They’ve also added a Scottish prop to help out up front and the brother of Nemani Nadolo in the backs to a side that seems ready to bring another premiership home to North Sydney Oval.

Overview with Zak Beer:

“We’re really looking forward to round one, it’s getting closer and closer which is exciting after a very long summer,” Beer told Rugby News.

“We were supposed to play a trial in Bowral on the weekend but unfortunately that got cancelled due to the weather. We had a strong trial against Easts the week before that though, then prior to that we had a top squad camp at the University of Wollongong for three days.

“Then we’ve got Eastwood at TG Milner this weekend which should be a great way to finish off the preseason.

“We’re in a good spot. Physically, pretty much everyone is ready to go for round one and the group is really excited after an extended nine month off season.
