Shute Shield’s 50 most influential players: 10-1

The June long weekend comes just over halfway through the 2023 Shute Shield regular season and we’ve now had plenty of time to take a look at all 12 sides.

So with no matches over the weekend, we thought we’d pull together a list of the 50 most influential players in the Shute Shield, based solely off their performances so far this season.

The list was compiled based on conversations with all 12 Shute Shield coaches and a number of key competition statistics.

To be eligible for the list, players must have played at least five of the 10 competition games so far this season.

  1. Otu Mausia - Western Sydney

After earning three caps for Tonga on last year’s Spring Tour, new Two Blues fullback Otu Mausia has added  more class to an exciting Western Sydney backline. The 26-year old, who is playing for a spot in Toutai Kefu’s World Cup squad, ranks in the top 10 for running metres, kicking metres and offloads and seems to score or set up a try in every game he plays.
