Shute Shield: Easts walk the line against Manly as the extra troops arrive


Eastern Suburbs are loving life on the edge and it will continue on Saturday when they head to the Village Green to take on Manly.

The Beasties forced their way into the top six for the first time this season after Round Nine and are increasingly being spoken of as a real contender with the return of a number of their Super Rugby stars to finish off the Shute Shield season.

As they become more familiar with the systems and the pace of club footy the likes of Alex Newsome, Tom Staniforth and Lalaki Foketi will add much to the Beasties cause.

Add Rob Leota from the Melbourne Rebels and it’s little wonder that a lot of good judges around the competition are saying keep a close eye on the boys from Woollahra.
