WARATAHS and former Manly Sea Eagles NRL back Tevita Funa is starting to make his mark in the Shute Shield, proving instrumental in the Western Sydney Two Blues breaking a 595-day drought with their stunning 25-15 defeat of defending Shute Shield premiers Gordon.

It was a memorable victory for the club - fittingly on their new home ground at Eric Tweedale Stadium - as their previous first grade win was on September 5 2020, when they beat Penrith 36-29.

The result also added an intriguing new dimension to the premiership.
