Shute Shield Round 1: Team of the week

There were a handful of surprising results on the opening weekend of the 2023 Shute Shield season and some impressive individual performances by some new and familiar faces.

Here is our Shute Shield team of the week from round one.

1) Jack Brewer - Northern Suburbs

An impressive 80 minute stint that included 11 carries, 8 tackles and parity with Sydney Uni at scrum time for the majority of the match. That allowed Brewer's backs to attack on the front foot and steal all the credit on Saturday night.

2) Phil Bradford - Hunter

The best try thief in the Shute Shield added to his tally in round one and had a strong afternoon in Newcastle. Even Bradford’s overthrows led to tries. While Bubba Coleman will want his hooker to execute, the Wildfires did what they needed to against Manly.

3) Hunter Stewart - Randwick
