Shute Shield: Coleman challenges Gordon to kick on after routing Two Blues

By MARK CASHMAN

Gordon coach Darren Coleman challenged his side to get better after the Highlanders’ 64-0 win over the Western Sydney Two Blues on Saturday.

Gordon scored 10 tries overall to go within a couple of percentage points of topping the Shute Shield ladder after the end of Round Two, but as Coleman said on Sunday that the start and end of their matches needed to improve.

“Our first and last 20-minute blocks were quite poor,” Coleman said.

“I can give some leniency to the last 20 minutes as we had all eight reserves on but our accuracy technically and tactically in the first 20 was unacceptable, as was our ability to not score a point in the last 20.
