Another Shute Shield Rugby match will be played at Eridge Park in Bowral on April 28. The Bowral Rugby Club is currently negotiating with Channel Seven as to whether the game will be televised or not. The match will once again be between last year’s grand finalists Northern Suburbs and power house club Sydney University. Bowral Rugby President Mark Freund says it should be another blockbuster game.
