Shute Shield coaches pick the opposition players that have most impressed them this season
We're now eight rounds in to the 2023 Shute Shield season and while not all sides have played one another just yet, most coaches have had a chance to take a look at majority of their rivals in the first part of the season.
We asked each coach which opposition player they've been most impressed with so far this year and 17 different names from right across the competition were mentioned.
Souths - Jayson Brewer
“I’ve been really impressed with Presley Tufuga from West Harbour and Michael Icely from Eastwood,” Brewer told Rugby News.
“Tufuga is a big powerful No.8 that gets his side over the gainline and Icely has a fantastic workrate around the pitch.”
