I am hearing that there was a boardroom coup at their AGM that lead to an old President retaking over. This saw the 1st grade coach (Huxley). GM, colts coordinator plus most of their 1st grade players and colts all either being sacked or walking away.
Expect Penrith removal from Shute Shield for 2018 to be made official in next few weeks.
A team in this part of the world is probably pretty important to the medium term prospects for rugby in this country. That would seemingly make it either a NSWRU or Rugby Australia issue. To my fairly casual observation the Shute Shield has kept faith with the Emus over many years during which doing so has probably been contrary to the individual SS clubs interests, both on and off the field.
