Shute Shield: All the coaches take a look at all the Round Four action

By MARK CASHMAN

Round Four of the Shute Shield is with us and the highlight of the action is the game between Gordon and Warringah at Chatswood.

Two coaches who worked with each other two years ago now head to head with pride and competition points on the line.

Elsewhere Eastern Suburbs will host Eastwood, West Harbour will play Randwick on Back to Wests day at Drummoyne, Manly play the Hunter Wildfires and Sydney Uni will test the Penrith defence at Uni.

The weekend will round off with Southern Districts taking on the Two Blues at Forshaw.

GORDON v WARRINGAH at Chatswood Oval

Gordon coach Darren Coleman knows a little bit about revving up a big game like their encounter against the Warringah Rats on Saturday.

Three seasons in charge of the Rats meant that he was knee deep in the twice annual northern beaches derby that has always seen a few hand grenades thrown into the opposition camp in game week.

This week it has been a bit harder with the obvious friendship that ‘DC’ has with Rats boss Mike Ruthven, forged from their time together down at Pittwater Rugby Park.
