Norths keeping the foot on the pedal on eve of finals

By MARK CASHMAN

Northern Suburbs coach Zak Beer is a big believer in momentum and says that resting players on the eve of the Shute Shield finals series was the last thing that he was thinking about this week.

The Shoremen host a dangerous Eastern Suburbs outfit at North Sydney Oval on Saturday in what should be an intriguing encounter with a win sealing the minor premiership for the home side.

Norths sit three points clear of Sydney Uni, who take on the Manly Marlins at the Village Green, at the top end of the table and Beer says it would be business as usual.
