Shute Shield: Eight Try Eastwood Earn Grand Final Spot

by Brendan Bradford – Sydney University and Eastwood will face-off in an epic Grand Final day after each club won through to the decider in all four grades over the weekend. The Students defeated Randwick in fourths and seconds, Eastern Suburbs in thirds and Southern Districts in first grade on Saturday, before Eastwood downed Easts in fourths and swept Manly in the top three grades at T.G. Millner on Sunday. A 55-24 first grade win capped off a successful day for the Woods. It’s the first time in Shute Shield history that just two teams will be represented on Grand Final day. While Uni always figure prominently on the last day of the season, for a club like Eastwood who “get by on the sniff of an oily rag” according to head coach John Manenti, it’s an extra-special achievement.
