Week eight of the Citizens Shield saw winds for Excelsior, Athletic Marist and Old Boys on Saturday.
Excelsior took a 33-24 victory over Kurow at Centennial Park for their fifth win of the campaign, despite an impressive second-half fightback from the visitors.
Sustained pressure and expansive passing led to Blues’ first try of the afternoon, centre Ryran McGowan’s elusive running and a slick offload allowing fullback James Pillay to touch down in the corner.
