On Saturday, August 19 at North Sydney Oval, Northern Suburbs defeated Manly Marlins 23-5 to secure a place in the 2023 Shute Shield Grand Final. Just prior to our match, Randwick and Eastwood went toe to toe with Randwick coming out on top with a 38-20 win over Eastwood.
After back-to-back Minor Premierships and having gone so close the last few seasons to making the Grand Final whilst unfortunately falling short at the final hurdle it's a fantastic reward for the years of hard work put in by all the players, staff, volunteers and supporters to be competing for what most people only ever dream of, winning a Shute Shield Grand Final.
Although it's a great achievement to be playing in a Shute Shield Grand Final, as a club we are well aware the job is not done and there is definitely one more game to win to ensure we achieve the goals set out at the start of the season.
This is where we call on all of you as past/current players, members, supporters, friends and family to get behind our club Northern Suburbs as we strive for greatness in 2023.
