Shute Shield Round 6 Preview: Eastwood battle Easts, Norths host Uni in “moving round”

The 2019 Shute Shield season has been a nightmare for tipsters to date and it doesn’t look like things are going to get any easier.  We spoke to the clubs to find out the latest from each camp ahead of five bumper round six matches this weekend.  Southern Districts v Western Sydney Southern Districts coach Don Mackinnon said discipline cost his side in last weekend’s two point loss to Manly.  The Rebels received three yellow cards in the match, including one in the final five minutes that allowed Manly to work their way down the field and kick the winning penalty goal.  “You just can’t afford to do that against good sides. I thought we took our opportunities when they presented themselves, but we gave away far too many penalties and Manly were able to keep their composure when it mattered,” the rookie coach said.  Despite dropping their first match of the season, the Rebels remain in second spot and can secure their position at the top end of the ladder
