Did you know:
That last Saturday, we set a NEW RECORD?
Back in 2017 David McDuling set a record for the “Biggest gap between last 1st grade game and his next”. Which was 2537 days from 24.9.2010 vs Souths (Semi Final) at No.1 Oval to 15.4.2017 vs Randwick at Coogee Oval.
Well on Saturday it was broken by Ollie Atkins by 66 days more. Ollie’s last 1st grade game was 3.8.2013 was also vs Souths on No.1 to his next on 20.9.2020 vs also Randwick on No.2 ground. Ollie’s total days were 2603. Congratulations Ollie.
The last time Randwick scored more then 40 points against us was 14.7.2007 at Coogee Oval, score was 25 43.
Randwick are the only Shute Shield Club to have more wins against us then we do against them. At the moment they have beaten us 15 more times over the years, which is now 231 games we have met.
Will McDonnell played his 50th club game vs Easts and his 40th 1st grade game two weeks back. Rohan O’Regan played his 75th 1st grade game as well. Stu Dunbar played his 75th 1st grade game vs ‘The Wicks”. Josh Schwager has scored 5 tries in his last two games as Captain of our 2nd XV.
Matt Hood and Sam Renton both play their 50th club game vs Gordon this Saturday. And talking of Matt, he scored the only try in 2nds win, and it just happened to be the teams 50th try in this short season.
In our Colts, 1st XV 5/8 Jude Gibbs is on target for his century, the clubs first player this year. Jude is on 98 points.
A BIG well done for our Colts 1sts with a 46-26 victory over the previously undefeated Randwick team.
Next weekend we head to Chatswood to play the “Gay Gordons”.
