Shute Shield: Fairytale finish for Warringah’s big four as they beat Northern Suburbs

By MARK CASHMAN

The fairytale finish for Warringah’s retiring big four probably should have been going out on the back of a grand final win in a couple of weeks time but the next best happened on Saturday.

Skipper Sam Ward, scrum half Josh Holmes, hooker Rob Kelly and Dave Feltscheer all called time on their careers at Rat Park and were rewarded with a 26-14 win over finals bound Northern Suburbs.

In the end the Rats scored four tries to two, one of those a penalty try from a Warringah intentional knock down from winger Charlie Tupu, but it was game that always had a certain edge about it.
