Uni and Eastwood shared the results in round 4 with 3 wins, 3 losses and draw each, however we managed to score 29 tries to Eastwood’s 9 tries in Colts and our Grade sides were in front also by 19 tries to 13. So we ended up 48 tries to 22 from all 7 games.
The sun was shining, the air was clean the grass was like a bowling green. A bumper crowd comprised of locals and those from the big city saw two heavyweights of Sydney club rugby slug it out at Mudgee’s Glen Willow Stadium last Saturday. Unfortunately University could not reach the final hurdle and went down to Eastwood 27-21.
All roads to lead to Mudgee today as the Intrust Super Shute Shield country roadshow hits the Central West of New South Wales, with reigning Premiers Sydney University taking on arch-rivals Eastwood in the 7TWO LIVE match-of-the-round at Glen Willow Stadium.
Nathaniel Tamwoy certainly has an interesting story. A Torres Strait Islander raised on Badu Island, 77kms northeast of Cape York.
Round four of the Intrust Super Shute Shield is set to light up the Mudgee region tomorrow with a large crowd expected at Glen Willow Sports Field on what promises to be a beautiful day for rugby.
Check out all the highlights from the 2018 Grand Final rematch
Sydney Uni 50 def Warringah 0
Prop Alex Batho ran on for his 100th Grade game against Warringah and also became just the 21st player to score a try on his 100th appearance since the 2000 season, when this stat started. He also becomes our 148th centurion.
SUFC is pleased to be supporting country rugby again in 2019.
Good Friday saw the rematch between Sydney University and the Warringah Rats. Unfortunately the tough, gallant rodents from the northern beaches could not register on the scoreboard and were defeated by a red hot Students fifteen by 50-0.
This Saturday when the Waratahs host the Rebels there will be one family in the crowd undecided on who to cheer for.
Are you keen for a mid week footy fix? Join us on Wednesday 24th April for a double dose as 3rd and 4th Grade play under lights at the SUFG
Last Saturday was the 33rd win in a row over Western Sydney/Parramatta dating back to 8.5.1999 at “Death Valley” or it could/should be our first win over the Western Sydney “Two Blue’s” 49-3 at their new ground at Lidcombe Oval.
