Competition in the Shute Shield hots up this week, thanks to the injection of nine FxPro Super Rugby players who return to club duty. Round eight is a vital week for the top four sides, with only three points separating Southern Districts, Eastwood, Eastern Suburbs and Manly on the competition ladder.
The return of HSBC Waratahs hooker Josh Mann-Rae (Manly) and wing Ateleni Pakalani (Southern Districts) from South Africa will boost their club sides, as both look to cement an all-important top-six position ahead of next week's bye.
