Shute Shield: Gordon sneak home, Easts flex their muscles and Rats bid big four farewell


Gordon continued their winning run towards the finals but it was a points splurge by Eastern Suburbs that really caught the eye as the final round of the home and away season of the Shute Shield was played out on Saturday.

The Highlanders held their nerve to beat Eastwood in the 7TWO TV match of the round while at Woollahra Oval Easts put 13 tries on Randwick which must put a spanner in the Galloping Greens' finals campaign.

The big win by Easts saw them jump to second on the ladder with Eastwood dropping to fifth and the Wicks ending up in sixth spot.

At Rat Park, Warringah saw off their big four - Sam Ward, Josh Holmes, Rob Kelly and Dave Felstcheer - with an emotional 26-14 win over finals bound Northern Suburbs.

In the other games Wests and Souths played out a 45-all draw and the Hunter Wildfires accounted for Penrith 51-14 at Nepean Rugby Park.
