After two exhilarating semi-final matches, the big finalists of the Shute Shield 2020 have been chosen
Gordon will face Eastwood at Leichhardt Oval this Saturday, October 31st from 300pm AEDT with the game being broadcast live on 7TWO & 7plus
Last weekend Gordon beat Suburb’s East 28-10 after a weak 3-3 first-half score
The Northern Suburbs and Eastwoods semi-final was just as tough the 100-minute thriller saw the Woods overtake the Shoremen by four goals against three with a full-time result of 9-12
Gordon and Eastwood last met in a grand final in 1976, when the Stags beat the Woods 33-4
After a successful 2017 Premiership season at Warringah, head coach Darren Coleman has set his sights on Gordon, and what a remarkable rise it has been
Fast track through 2020 and the boys go for the big dance for the first time since 1998 A combination of dominant coaching and meticulous recruiting, Gordon has truly been the comeback story of the last few seasons
If you had told Tartan’s men two years ago, they would play in the 2020 Shute Shield Grand Final, in addition to holding the club’s championship title, which the University of Sydney has held ever since. 16 years old, they I’ll tell you that you dream
Over the past two decades, Eastwood has continued to be a formidable force in the competition, regularly playing soccer finals
Ben Batger, a bleeding blue and white Premiership-winning old boy, officially took over Woods’ much-coveted head coach role in early 2019 from Australian 7s women’s coach John Manenti
Batger was truly Manenti’s apprentice, eager to follow in his footsteps after Manenti led Eastwood to his 2015 & victories in 2011, 2014
The game everyone will be talking about is between NSWRU Gen Blue playmakers Rod Iona (Gordon) and Tane Edmed (Eastwood), who, to put it mildly, have had exceptional seasons for their clubs respectively.
Their presence and control in the paddock has been praised throughout the season, and their striking abilities have certainly won games for them this season.
But that said, the main difference this weekend may well be the platform their forwards provide to allow them to take control of the paddock
While Eastwood may have more recent Grand Final experience, Gordon is looking forward to winning the final and most important prize of the 2020 season
In other matches, the University of Sydney will face Eastern Suburbs in both First Colts (from 1045h AEDT) and Second Year (from 1145h AEDT) The Grand Final matches which will be live on Cluch TV
