Rory Suttor stars for Rats’ against Woods in game they shouldn’t have won

By MARK CASHMAN

Warringah coach Mike Ruthven hailed the “presence” of his openside breakaway Rory Suttor in the wake of the Rats’ 40-37 Shute Shield win over Eastwood at TG Millner field on Saturday.

The Rats showed some signs that they are in the race for a finals spot this season with a victory that involved them conceding two penalty tries, two yellow cards, being behind 18-13 at the break and their skipper Ben Marr having a mixed day from the kicking tee.

Throw into the mix the fact that the Woods also grabbed an alarming amount of the Warringah lineout ball and you will know that this was an afternoon to cherish for the visitors.
