Sydney University are on target to collect the Jack Scott Cup in Sydney’s Premier women’s rugby union competition.

The University women’s Gold team ended the 14-round season proper undefeated after downing Gordon 29-12 at Beauchamp Park on Saturday to claim the minor premiership.

They’ll meet Wildfires in a semi-final at Rothwell Park on Saturday to earn a berth in the season decider. Gordon will meet Easts at the same venue in the other semi-final.

Sydney University’s Blue side finished 7th in the eight-team competition.

During the season, the Golds have rattled up 509 points while conceding just 118.

Meanwhile, defending premiers Sydney University dipped out of the 2023 Shute Shield, Sydney’s premier men’s rugby union competition, with a 36-7 loss to Gordon at Chatswood Oval in the final round of the competition proper on Saturday.

Round 1 of the Shute Shield play-offs will see minor premiers Norths up against six-placed Hunter Wildfires, second-placed Randwick taking on fifth-placed Gordon, and third-placed Eastwood up against fourth-placed Manly.

Sydney University Second Grade finished third behind Randwick and Manly in the Colin Caird Shield, Third Grade finished fifth in the Henderson Shield and Fourth Grade finished fifth in the Henderson Cup to keep their premiership hopes alive.

Sydney University will also feature in the Colts playoffs, with Colts 1 finishing third and Colts 2 and Colts 3 each finishing sixth.
