Discussion in 'Shute Shield' started by Hugh Jarse, Aug 17, 2014.
I know you haven't seen it in a while Dave but it's a Shute Shield
We'll find something silver, never fear.
Don't the winners get tankards as well as the Shield?
Evidence - http://newslocal.newspaperdirect.com/epaper/viewer.aspx
More likely pewter (ie mainly tin) rather than silver
Good luck to all the GF teams across the grades and colts.
I agree with Dave -- let's hope rugby is the winner.
And we don't have any interference from the weather man.
Weather - I’m hoping the officials & players player flowing ruby – it’s like the lull before the storm in here, all the regular contributors are very quite – including me.
Last time these 2 sides met in a Grand Final 26,000 turned up to watch, allot of those supporters and players are still around – get out to Concord.
Struth, Dave, not sure that I could stand the pain!!!
I flew back from Hong Kong for the last one. Oh, how it hurt!!
But I was there in 1999! Great year for us, we got married, we won the cricket snd rugby world cups as well as the big one, our first ever first grade premiership after a mere 50 years.
Others fancy your mobs chances @Dave Beat:

All about fun this weekend - and no complacency.
Is the #22 for the Woodies First Grade team the same Arthur Currie that went to NRL for the Under 20 Carmakers Cup after he graduated from St Gregory's Campbelltown in 2013?
Reminder to those with Foxtel IQ's that you will need to reprogramme your machine if you want to record the Grand Final tomorrow.
The previous series link from Channel 7Two hasn't automatically switched to Channel 7 on my machine.
Has Tom Alexander moved to the front row? Or have the numbers been mixed a little?
Just an error on his number
I don't know. Wouldn't bet on it.
GGAAAAMMMMMEEEEE DDDDDAAAAAYYYYYY - #rugbyrocksconcord
I think so. Currie is an unusual spelling, and Arthur is not a very common name these days?
Yeah the Marlins Forth Graders BOOM BOOM - great work today.

And the Boys;
One of the competition's most destructive ball-runners look for his subtleties in ball-playing.
2.Dane Le Rougetel:
Manly's 'Club Player of the Year' is also a PE teacher when he's not scoring tries or in the gym.
Contrary to the name - if the skin-head doesn't give it away watch him during the game.
Hailing from Paraguay look for his lethal pick-and-drives and powerful running game.
A leader and backbone of the side 'Watto' picks apart opposition line-outs like a scientist.
Gets through a mountain of work with his strong ball carries and bone-rattling defence.
A 7 who genuinely 'Walks his Talk' and dominates the breakdown. Tough as anything but can mix it with the backs speed wise.
This Argentinian #8 is as scary as he looks. Playing through numerous injuries 'Manny' refuses to let his mates down.
Rugby Gods wrote the definition of a cheeky halfback and 'Smarty' oozes every word of it. Sharp around the ruck with a huge future ahead of him.
Mr perfectionist guides this team around with a calmness and his reliable left boot. The competition's top point scorer.
Over 200 grade games and 99 tries. Need we say more?
The 'Shiraz' gets better with age. This team's fearless leader - leaves the Club's Vice President tag when he walks on the field.
The Captain of Paraguay's National Rugby team is explosive, hard hitting and lightning fast - causes havoc for opposition backlines. A celebrity back in his homeland.
Forget the number on his back, "Wombat" is one of the hardest hitting players on the field - and always finds his way to the try-line.
15.Joe Eki Metuisela:
A wealth of experience 'Eki/Superstar' controls the game from the back with a calmness and touches of individual brilliance.
For those that care
Corporation (referee assisted)
In all fairness 2nd grade a decent game if not exactly an example of mistake free rugby uni were stronger team
Great to see woodies and marlins come together in their support for the wicks
