Intrust Shute Shield: Mid-season report card

After 10 rounds, the 2016 Intrust Super Shute Shield competition appears to be one of the closest in recent years with just 11 points separating first and eighth spot. As we reach the back end of the season, Rugby News has taken a moment to look back on each sides start to the year to work out who are the contenders and who are the pretenders.

The Students set the tone for their season with a win over Eastwood in round one and have only dropped games to Randwick and West Harbour. A 27-23 win over Southern Districts in round 9, after trailing 20-3, proved the Students have plenty of fight and the experience needed in big matches.
