Shute Shield: Norths get chance to impress boss in person against Wildfires

By MARK CASHMAN

Northern Suburbs head coach Earl Va’a gets the chance to take his coaching “live” when the Shoremen host the Hunter Wildfires at home on Saturday.

Va’a has been in quarantine for much of the past two weeks and only really got hands on last weekend when his time in the hotel was over.

Before that it was a hell of a tussle to even get him back into the country after he went home to be with his family in Wellington, New Zealand once the Covid-19 pandemic got serious.
