THE giant killing Southern Districts have their sights firmly set on a spot in the Shute Shield finals following their stunning 26-19 win over competition frontrunners Hunter Wildfires on Saturday.
So far this the season the Rebels have already claimed the scalps of the top two sides in the competition, Hunter and Gordon.
“We are just looking to build a bit of momentum now hopefully,” coach Jayson Brewer told Rugby News.
Considering all the circumstances, Saturday was a huge result with the Wildfires on top of the table and Souths running last heading into the game played on a brisk evening in Newcastle.
