Shute Shield: Eastwood steel themselves for a big challenge against the Highlanders


Eastwood coach Ben Batger is well aware of the enormity of the challenge facing his side when they take on Gordon in the 7TWO TV match of the round on Saturday.

This isn’t just any old run of the mill home and away match - there’s the local derby aspect, the Sir Roden Cutler Shield is up for grabs and for the Highlanders there is the chance to grab the club championship with a whole of club effort.

No matter what the result here both teams will be playing in the first week of finals - Gordon on top of the table and the Woodies anywhere from second through to sixth.

So this one does matters and the perfect test not far out from playing for sheep stations, according to Batger.
