Shute Shield: Round 14 Results

Frenetic pace and missed opportunities were the order of the day at Forshaw Rugby Park, when the third placed Warringah took on fourth placed Southern Districts in a highly charged encounter. Warringah overwhelmed Southern Districts in the second half, and took the win 26-12.


A fast paced game from the outset, Ben Volavola was the first to register a try just five minutes in to give Southern Districts an early lead.

A game-ending injury to Josh Gillard saw Tyson Davies enter the game to replace him in the seventh minute, and after a short delay the teams resumed the up-tempo end to end style match.

Warringah made several good attempts to cross the line, and were finally rewarded when David Feltscheer set up Rory O’Connor for an easy try to level the scores at five all. Fly-half Hamish Angus was unable to add the extras and the scores remained level after 22 minutes on the clock.

Volavola thwarted another Warringah attempt, and managed to gain significant territory from the turnover but failed to capitalise. A largely frustrating half of football came to a close when Warringah scored a try in the 40th minute and took a 12-5 lead at the break.

A yellow card to Souths player Godinet in the 52nd minute saw Warringah take advantage and break through for their second try of the match – scored by Holmes and again set up by David Feltscheer, ably converted by Hamish Angus, taking their lead to 14 points.

Souths put on a brilliant display on their way to what looked like a certain try, but Warringah scrambled to prevent it crossing, and emotions were running high at Forshaw Park.

A spectacular 60m run from fly-half Hamish Angus to score Warringah’s third try of the match was punishment for a Souths turnover.

Afa Pakalani scored a solid try to mitigate the scoreline pain for Souths, and Ben Volavola converted to narrow the gap to 14 points with eight minutes left to play in the match. A big run from Gibbons maintained their territory but again Warringah managed to defend.

    Thanks for the write-up.

    Shouldn’t the Penrith-Eastwood results be headline news? 129-0 It shows there is a problem with the system. Ignoring it now will just lead to more issues in the future.

      Sadly I think Penrith have regressed this year. I guess a positive is that Parramatta and Penrith used to be bottom two year after year and now Parramatta is a genuine threat on any given weekend. I think Penrith need more support though as most of the players in their area head to league.

        It’s difficult for the Emus to dig themselves out of this hole when the more established clubs keep on pinching any promising talent that pops up out at Penrith. I’m looking at you, Randwick and Easts. As if there aren’t enough junior clubs and private schoolboys in your catchment areas.

        • Nick

          NSWRU and ARU need to help out then as it is an important area.
