Shute Shield: Sinclair shows he’s a cut above as Norths knock Uni out of finals

The 28-year-old Waratahs squad member scored the match-winning try against Sydney Uni as the Shoremen came back from a 22-10 deficit midway through the second half to record a 24-22 win over the two-time defending premiers.

The win means Norths will go through to this weekend’s grand final qualifiers on Sunday against Eastwood and Uni’s chance to do a Shute Shield three-peat are over.
