Shute Shield’s 50 most influential players: 20-11

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. Ben Dowling - Randwick

After making his Super Rugby debut for the Waratahs earlier this year, former Aussie 7s gun Ben Dowling has been outstanding at fullback for Randwick. Dowling has speed to burn and ranks third for linebreaks and is in the top 10 for tackles breaks. He’s also a fantastic link player and has had a hand in some fantastic Randwick tries this season. 

  1. Jack Bowen - Eastern Suburbs
