The 2019 Shute Shield playoff picture should be a fair bit clearer following round 17 on Saturday.
Manly can book their spot in the finals with a win over West Harbour, while the winner of the Gordon v Easts clash will boost their chances of playing finals footy dramatically.
Above them, Warringah, Eastwood, Uni and Norths will all look to secure their spots in the top three and claim home ground advantage on the opening weekend of the finals.
