Norths get off on thrill of the chase against dangerous Woods


Northern Suburbs are quickly gathering the reputation of being one of the better attacking sides in the Shute Shield but it was one play without ball in hand that underlined their intent this season on Saturday against Eastwood.

It was one of those “shut the gate” type scenarios but skipper Harry Burey started the chase and metre by metre gained some ground.

But James Turner, the fastest man on the field and perhaps the fastest man in the competition was also part of the posse and pegged him back by the time that Wilson had reached the 22m line.
