Magners Shute Shield – Grand Finals Day
Concord Oval, Saturday August 16 , 9am – 5pm

The pinnacle of club rugby in Australia, the Shute Shield is Sydney’s Premiership competition and provides an important stepping stone to Super Rugby success.

The 2014 Grand Finals Day takes place at Concord Oval this Saturday, August 16, with free shuttle buses laid on afterwards to take fans to ANZ Stadium for the Bledisloe Cup match. A free family fun day will also run from 12pm.

Rugby fans are encouraged to make a day of it and cheer on the next generation of NSW Waratahs and Wallabies in the biggest and best day of club rugby this season, just hours before the Wallabies take on the All Blacks.

Fourth grade kicks things off at 9am, followed by the third and second grade finals, with the headline first grade Magners Shute Shield Final between Eastwood and Southern Districts taking place at 3pm.

From 5.15pm, free shuttle buses will then transport fans from Concord Oval to ANZ Stadium, just 6 kilometres away, in plenty of time for the massive opening match of The Rugby Championship which kicks off at 8pm.

As well as the spectacular on-field action, there’s also a free family day running from 12pm and featuring kids’ inflatables as well as appearances from Wallabies and Waratahs mascots Wally and Tah Man.

Tickets for the Shute Shield Finals Day are priced from under $3 for juniors and $23 for adults and are available now from Ticketek.

The full match Concord Oval schedule (Saturday August 16) is as follows:
9.05am – Henderson Cup (fourth grade) – Eastwood v Sydney University
10.50am – Henderson Shield (third grade) – Sydney University v Warringah
12.50pm – Colin Caird Shield Shield (second grade) – Sydney University v Manly
3.00pm – Magners Shute Shield (first grade) – Eastwood v Southern Districts

This weekend will also see the Colts winners determined, with the Colts Grand Finals Day taking place at Forshaw Rugby Park on Sunday, August 17. In first grade, Sydney Uni takes on Randwick (Sunday 3pm), whilst second grade (1pm) and third grade (11.15am) will be contested by Uni and Manly.
