Shute Shield Teams for Round Two: Marr at fullback for Rats, Wicks start a new flyhalf, Marlins wild about Harry

By MARK CASHMAN

Warringah first grade coach Mike Ruthven has named Dean Blore at flyhalf and the electrifying Ben Marr at fullback for the Rats big Shute Shield encounter against Randwick on Saturday.

There has been considerable speculation about where the two pieces of the Warringah first grade jigsaw would fit and they have gone for the vision and explosive attacking abilities of Marr at the back.

Blore came to Warringah from Penrith in the off-season and has fitted in well at Rat Park and will play a major part in the way that the Rats go about their business in 2021.

The side also sees the return of prop Rory O’Connor from a sabbatical and the naming of former Gordon forward Hugh Margin at lock.
