Shute Shield: Manly Marlins keen to take their A game to Uni

By MARK CASHMAN

Manly Marlins negotiated a “hairy one” last weekend when they squeaked home against the Western Sydney Two Blues but they know that they will have to dust off their A game when they take on Sydney Uni on Saturday.

The Marlins travel to Camperdown knowing that there has been great joy and even greater heartbreak at Uni’s home ground.

They beat Uni the week before the finals last year only to get overwhelmed in the one v six qualifying final a week later at the same ground.

Marlins boss Matt McGoldrick said: “To beat them our basics will need to be better than theirs for longer periods and we need to compete harder than them."
