Shute Shield: Highlanders sneak home, Norths knock out Uni and Eastwood cause upset against Easts


The first week of finals in the 2020 Shute Shield have been run and won and the pecking order has been shaken and stirred after the weekend.

Minor premiers Gordon stumbled their way to a clunky 15-14 win over the sixth placed Randwick while Northern Suburbs came from behind to beat two-time defending premiers Sydney Uni 24-22.

The major upset of the weekend came on Sunday when Eastwood, who finished fifth at the end of the home and away season, beat second placed Eastern Suburbs 29-20 to remain alive for another week.

The results mean that Gordon will play Easts and Norths will take on Eastwood with the winners playing in the grand final on October 31 at Leichhardt Oval.
