Captain Short says win over Souths worth double in the long run


Randwick skipper Mitch Short reckons that Saturday’s last minute win over South Districts at Coogee Oval on Saturday could be worth “double” as the Shute Shield heads towards the playoff towards the end of August.

The Galloping Greens notched up a 29-25 Round Eight victory over Souths with skipper Short squeezing his way over, somewhat unconvincingly, from a rolling maul in the 79th minute for the go ahead score.

The game had bounced around all afternoon at a cold and windy Coogee and going into the final minutes the visitors led 25-22.

“We knew that Souths were always going to be tough to beat and in that first half we were really up against it,” Short told Rugby News.
