Shute Shield: Wests break through with warts and all win over Manly


They’ve been close over past couple of starts but West Harbour broke through for their first win of the 2020 Shute Shield season on Saturday with a “warts and all” 22-19 win over Manly.

Wests have been in all of their games so far this season but have fallen away and conceded points in the championships minutes of the second half.

But that was far from the case against the Marlins on Saturday with their scrum a major weapon and they were able to claw their way back into the game when they fell behind midway through the second stanza.

The Marlins looked to have had the game in their keeping when their centre Hutana Coffin crashed over and it was converted by Harley Attwater to give the visitors a 19-15 lead.
