Shields v Shields in final


When Old Boys’ Jeremiah Shields lines up for his fifth successive Citizens Shield final at the Whitestone Contracting Stadium on Saturday, a very similar face will be staring back.

Old Boys’ opponents Excelsior have a Shields of their own, two for that matter, Jeremiah’s twin Thomas, and younger brother Isaac.

Saturday’s final will be Thomas’s first, with Blues last featuring in the pinnacle fixture of North Otago club rugby in 1997.
