A number of big names have been named to play in this weekend’s crucial Intrust Shute Shield round, with finals just two weeks away.

Former Waratahs hooker Damien Fitzpatrick has been named to play for Eastwood in their must win clash against Randwick. Fitzpatrick left Australia in 2013 to play with French club Lyon but is rumoured to have signed with the Waratahs for next season.

Sydney Uni and Waratahs flyer Henry Clunies-Ross is expected to make his long awaited return from injury for the Students against West Harbour. Shortly after signing a deal with the Tahs, Clunies-Ross dislocated his ankle and broke his fibula in round two of last year’s NRC.

Norths have also named Australia Sevens squad member Stephen Van Der Walt to take on the Two Blues.
