Intrust Super Shute Shield : Round 6 Preview


10/05/2019





Last weekend saw the competition turn on its head. There are no longer any undefeated sides in the competition and only two points separate 10th place and the coveted 6th place on the ladder. 2019 is shaping as one of the most intriguing seasons of the Intrust Super Shute Shield and it’s still anyone’s game. With a few changes to the sides, let’s see who will make their mark in Round 6.


FEATURED GAME – LIVE ON 7TWO FROM 3 PM (AEST)
NORTHERN SUBURBS V SYDNEY UNIVERSITY AT NORTH SYDNEY OVAL

Only one change for Norths as Declan Carroll comes into the lock position for Hugh Taylor, which sees Connor Vest shift to number 8. The Shoremen return home this week, having endured their first defeat of 2019 they will be looking to bounce back to winning ways. Like for like changes for the Students with Jay Spencer, Jack Sherratt and Banjo Travers making way for Tom Osborne, Ratu Rotuisolia and Theo Strang respectively. Following a loss to Gordon last week, Sydney University will see this as a perfect opportunity to scalp quality opposition. Neither side will want to give this one away.

EASTWOOD V EASTERN SUBURBS AT 3 PM, TG MILLNER

Only one change for the Woodies this week as Pama Fou returns at outside centre for Barton Picone. Given the extent of injuries for the side Eastwood will be looking to build some consistency over the coming weeks to maintain top spot. Eastern Suburbs have somewhat pulled themselves out of a slump having secured a narrow victory over West Harbour last week. Ryan McCauley returns to the second row for the Beasties which will be seen as a big boost. Henry Paterson comes straight back onto the wing while Melbourne Rebel Sione Tuipulotu and James Field form a new look centre pairing which will need to be on song against Woodies Pama Fou and Enoka Muliufi.

Eastwood (1-15)
Dean Doumbos, Ed Craig, Rob Lagudi, James Neale, Manasa Rokosuka, Mick Icely, Tevita Piukala, Rhys Allen, Mick Snowden, Tayler Adams, Kiti Ratu, Enoka ‘Nox’ Muliufi, Pama Fou, Afa Pakalani, Jackson Bird

Eastern Suburbs (1-15)
Callum King, Lindsey Stevens, Archie Hall, Emerson Adcock, Ryan McCauley, Jack Turley, Charlie Gamble, Sam Shires, Jack Grant, Cohan Guerra, Henry Paterson, James Field, Sione Tuipulota, Dan Donato, Will Maddocks


SOUTHERN DISTRICTS v WESTERN SYDNEY AT 3 PM, FORSHAW PARK

Southern Districts also suffered their first defeat of the season at Manly Oval last week. Former Manly Sea Eagle James Hasson shifts to the second row at the expense of Angus Ryan, which sees Nathan Lawson return to blindside flanker. Will Thomas returns to the side in place of Bayley Kuenzle. Four changes for the Two Blues for the side that lost out to Eastwood last week. Junior Satiu comes into the front row for Nick Blacklock. Sev Domoni returns at lock for Tevita Vea. Dom Graham and Taliliki Nadrere come into the side for Netane Masima and Levi Tofa.

WARRINGAH V RANDWICK AT 3 PM, PITTWATER RUGBY PARK

Warringah come into the fixture fresh from their bye round. Only two changes for the Wicks, Cam Betham returns in the front row and Tom Pirrodi comes in at blindside flanker for Kyle Harris. Randwick now have back to back victories and are looking to keep pace with the top six. The Rats are always very tough to play at home and neither side can afford to let points slip at this stage of the competition. A host of changes have been named most notably Seb Wileman at outside centre which will be a great battle with the fleet footed Tom Molloy.

Warringah (1-15)
Faavae Sila, Wes Thomas, Baxter King, Sam Thompson, Matt Foulds, Potu Laveasa, Max Girdler, Sam Ward, Josh Holmes, Hamish Angus, Charlie Tupu, Tyson Davis, Seb Wileman, Esera Chee Kam, Liam Windon

Randwick (1-15)
George Hendry, David Vea, Cam Betham, Tom Nowlan, Nathan Den Hoedt, Tom Pirrodi, Jack Johnson, Christian Poidevin, Mitch Short, Bryan Croke, Jackon Mohi, Nick Wilkinson, Tom Molloy, Zac Carr, Freddy Dorrough


WEST HARBOUR V GORDON AT 3 PM, CONCORD OVAL

Only one change apiece for both sides, the Pirates have Graeme Kolomalu joining the side at winger and Robbie Coleman comes in for the Stags at fullback which sees Jaline Graham shift to the wing in place of Niko Malo. West Harbour may feel hard done by following an inspired second half performance, narrowly missing out on victory against Easts last week. Gordon will be full of confidence having taken down Sydney University last week and having the inclusion of Melbourne Rebel and Wallabies hooker Jordan Uelese. Defeat would see either team out of the top six.

West Harbour (1-15)
Vaughn Lomax, Raukawa Neems, Rhys Brodie, Amos Viiga, Michael Rigney, Kaliova Nacina, Damien Fleming, Francis Ieremia Saufoi, Dion Spice, Tiaan Henk Swanepoel, Graeme Kolomalu, Tyler Fisher, Christian Vainerer, James Turner, Noah Cooper

Gordon (1-15)
Harry Rorke, Mahe Vailanu/Jordan Uelese, Charlie Abel, Cameron Holt, Jack Margin, Brendan Mitchell, James Lough, Jordy Goddard, Jacob Abel, Sean Kearns, Mike Molloy, Mark Koteczky, Jaline Graham, Kim Bateman, Robbie Coleman
