Shute Shield: Gordon back from dead to grab season-defining win against Uni

By MARK CASHMAN

Things weren’t looking too flash for Gordon after the first 25 minutes of their big clash with Sydney Uni at home on Saturday.

The Highlanders had conceded three very dominant tries to Uni, their scrum was getting man handled, the Students’ lineout drive looked awesome and they were down 19-3.

But some of the lessons learnt from the loss to Northern Suburbs the week before came into play and Gordon clawed their way back into the contest and eventually won 34-24.
