Shute Shield: The coaches have their say about all the action in Round Nine


Northern Suburbs take on Randwick in the 7TWO TV match of the round in what will be an intriguing high point of the ninth round of the Shute Shield competition on Saturday.

The Wicks have lost two on the trot while there Shoremen have clawed their way up the ladder to fourth in the wake of their 41-38 win over Eastwood.

Both teams play a similar brand of football and the Wicks will throw young Ben Donaldson into the fray at fly-half in an attempt to get a line on where his game is at after a bits and pieces season in the wider Waratahs squad.

The way he controls the game and comes up against the experienced Angus Sinclair will go a long way to deciding down which avenue this games goes.

Elsewhere Eastern Suburbs take on Sydney Uni at Woollahra, Southern Districts play Gordon at Forshaw, West Harbour travel to the foot of the mountain to tussle with Penrith and the Emu Burgers while the Two Blues play the Hunter Wildfires at Lidcombe.

The other game sees Eastwood take on Manly with the Sir Roden Cutler Shield on the line at TG Millner.

Here’s how the games could pan out!
