Shute Shield: Last man standing as Randwick record gutsy win over Warringah

By MARK CASHMAN

Randwick coach Ben McCormack praised his club’s heart and will to win in the wake of the Galloping Greens 13-8 win over last season’s grand finalists Warringah on Saturday.

Anyone not wearing myrtle green on Saturday would have had the Rats odds on to win this one by some way, but somehow the home side managed to come up with ‘W’ against all the odds.

They played the last 28 minutes without of the services of their fullback Locky Miller after he was red carded for an illegal tackle but still managed to grind it out keeping the big Warringah scrum at bay.

If we were talking “rugba league” here one could easily lapse and say that the Wicks put their bodies on the line.

“Yeah I was really proud of my group on Saturday, they showed some real character when seemingly everything was going against us,” McCormack said.
