1st Grade Team Announcement

A second away game on the trot and this week we are back to an all club Super Saturday day affair at Chatswood Oval.
A mega day of rugby ahead with all 7 colts and grade games to be played back to back, altering many kick-off times.

Norths returning to the winner’s list last week with a comprehensive with over Western Sydney Two Blues and they retained the Rod Phelps Cup.

Norths will meet a desperate Gordon team coming off the back of a home loss, to ladder leaders Eastwood. In such a tight competition, their loss last week dropped them outside the top 6 and all the way back to 9th.

Yet another great piece of silverware is on offer this week,1st Grade will play for the Baxter / Mortlock Cup. Currently held by Norths after two wins both home and away in 2018.

In a late change to the starting XV last week, scrum-half Nick Duffy made his return from a knee injury, suffered throughout last seasons NRC period.

After some again some brilliant form from the bench, Nick Palmer resumes his starting position in the 2nd row. He joins Connor Vest in the forwards who notches up his 50th 1st Grade Cap.

An unfortunate casualty from last weeks match is Jack Lindsay, who went down with a foot injury. The injury length unknown at this stage and he is replaced by Connor Winchester forcing a reshuffle in the midfield.
