The tragic origin of the Shute Shield is well known. In 1922 a Sydney University prop forward, 23 year old Robert Elliot Shute, was accidentally killed when his head hit the ground in a tackle during a representative trial game. The accident had such an impact on the Sydney University Club they decided his death could not be forgotten and decided to name a trophy in his honour to be awarded to the best team in the Sydney competition. This idea was taken up by the rugby community and so the Shute Memorial Trophy came into existence. It eventually became known as the Shute Shield.
