Shute Shield Rd 17: Manly & Hunter book finals spots, Two Blues win but lose in penultimate round

Manly and Hunter secured their spots in this year's six team finals series with impressive wins over Warringah and West Harbour respectively. That leaves just one playoff spot available and although Western Sydney beat Gordon and Sydney Uni lost to Eastwood over the weekend, Gordon and Uni will more than likely play in round 18 for a spot in the finals.

Catch up on all the action from the penultimate round of the 2023 Shute Shield regular season.

Western Sydney 23-12 Gordon

In a three way battle for the final spot in the playoffs with Gordon and Sydney Uni, Western Sydney did everything they needed to do on Saturday but are somehow further away from the playoffs than they were leading into round 17.

The Two Blues beat Gordon at Chatswood Oval and while Sydney Uni lost to Eastwood, the Students picked up a crucial bonus point for losing by less than seven points.
