BLK Dewar Shield action returned over the weekend, featuring two Melbourne Rebels players. Check out their performances below in Round 8:
Hunter Paisami (Harlequins)
Paisami provided his usual strong carries around the park as well as bruising, determined defence at right centre. Overall, played a very strong part of a convincing 40-12 win against Footscray.
Kiti Ratu (Box Hill)
Ratu played his first game of Dewar Shield for the year. He came on in the second half and had an immediate impact, displaying that elusive ball running and scoring a long-range solo try. Ratu showed leadership and communication in the backline in Box Hill’s crucial 38-17 victory over Melbourne University.
