Shute Shield Mid Season Review: Eastwood, Gordon & Manly

We’re a little over halfway through the 2022 Shute Shield regular season and as the sides start to prepare their run towards the finals, we thought we’d get the inside word from each of the first grade coaches on the opening 10 rounds.

First up, we chat to Eastwood coach Ben Batger, Gordon’s Billy Melrose and Manly mentor Phil Blake.

Eastwood: 3rd - 7 wins, 3 losses

Next five: Gordon (A), Warringah (A), Hunter (H), Eastern Suburbs (A), Northern Suburbs (H)
