Shute Shield: Five standout performers from round two

Gordon and Norths jumped clear at the top of the Shute Shield ladder after notching consecutive wins to start the season over the weekend, while Eastwood, Uni, Manly and Hunter also claimed their first wins.

We kept an eye on all the action throughout round two and have picked five of the best performers from last weekend.

Mahe Vailanu - Gordon

Mahe Vailanu won the 2020 Catchpole Medal before heading over to the US for a stint in the MLR and showed why he was voted the best player in the competition in Gordon’s win over Souths.

Vailanu had a hand in everything, scoring twice and setting up a third try in the first half in the Stags' 44-22 win. The hooker has won three premierships at three different clubs in his past five seasons and will play a key role in Gordon’s Shute Shield title defence later this year.
