Sydney Rugby Union (SRU) has today announced the fixtures for all eighteen rounds of the 2023 Charter Hall Shute Shield season, with the competition officially kicking off on 1 April.

The 2023 season will launch with a flurry of blockbuster matchups, including a Randwick road trip to Pittwater Rugby Park and a clash between Northern Suburbs and Sydney University.

Round One will also see West Harbour opening the new Concord Oval against Two Blues and the Woodies travel to Woollahra Oval for a date with Easts, with both sides finals contenders in 2022 and looking to build on strong finishes to last season.

The first five rounds are heavy on traditional and emerging rivalries, Warringah against Sydney University (Round Two), Gordon against Eastwood (Round Four) and Norths against Gordon (Round Five).

“The countdown is well and truly underway for the 2023 Charter Hall Shute Shield season, and today’s announcement will only heighten the excitement throughout our competition,” said SRU General Manager Peter Watkins.

“After what was one of our closest competitions in recent decades, each club is working hard to ensure the competition is set for 1 April.

“The Charter Hall Shute Shield is an incredibly competitive and strong rugby competition, and we look forward to seeing all the rugby community and fans enjoying the action in 2023.

With all twelve teams playing eighteen matches throughout the season, the clubs will enjoy a bye weekend following Round Ten before the run to the finals series begins on 17 June.

As is customary, the run to finals will again be all-important, especially for clubs that have teetered on the precipice of a final position over recent years.

The Two Blues will face Randwick, Gordon and West Harbour in the final three fixtures of the season, looking to build upon a 2022 season which saw them narrowly miss out on finals rugby.

Blockbuster fixtures between Eastwood and Norths (Round Sixteen), Warringah against Manly (Round Seventeen) and Gordon against Sydney University (Round Eighteen) round out the competition and could be integral in shaping the top four.

You’ll be able to catch all the action Live, Ad-Free and On-Demand on Stan Sport.
