2023 Shute Shield Season Preview: Southern Districts
2022 was a tough ole year at Forshaw for Southern Districts but from all reports, new coach Jayson Brewer and club coach Matt Barr drew a line in the sand late last year and moved positively into 2023.
Despite their difficulties in recent years, the club retained the majority of last year's playing group and pushed more players into Super Rugby.
The Rebels have a long road ahead of them to return to their best, but it sounds as though they're ready to give it a good crack.
Overview with Jayson Brewer:
“We’ve had a really solid preseason looking back at it,” Brewer told Rugby News.
"Our number one focus has been on rediscovering our DNA as a club and re-establishing how we want to play the game. We’ve implemented some new structures both on and off the field and a philosophy of play we are excited to bring to the competition.
