2023 Shute Shield Season Review: Hunter Wildfires
Hunter took another major step forward in 2023, playing finals footy for the first time.
But ultimately, coach Scott Coleman and his Wildfires were bitterly disappointed to finish their season one week earlier than planned and are already working to extend their campaign in 2024.
Overview with Scott Coleman:
"It was really disappointing to finish the year the way we did to be honest," Coleman told Rugby News.
"A lot of people keep telling us what a great season we had but we were pretty disappointed and bitter with the end. That’s footy unfortunately.
"We’re still quite bitter about the semi final loss to Norths. I don’t think we got a 50/50 call all day but we’re the little brother from up the coast and we’ve got to learn to live with that.
