Wins by Central Star and Wrights Bush in 1946 was no surprise. This was the final games in the series and these two teams were even on points. They had to play off to find the winner. Drummond who had the lead for most of the season was in third place and Limehills in fourth with their win over Dipton.
Central Star played Winton and as expected won, but with the wind at their backs should have been ahead more than 10-0.
In the second half Winton made more use of the wind and with great accurate kicking was able to keep Central Star in their own half. If Winton had taken advantage of their opportunities they would have caused an upset - but went down 10-9.
C. McKenzie had a bad game at half back for Winton, which was probably due to an injured thumb. Central Star took advantage of this and tied McKenzie up ensuring they did not get the ball out to his backs.
C. MGillvray was the best of the Central Star forwards in the loose. R. Dalzell showed pace on the wing. These two scored good tries.
Had J. McIlwrick converted Winton's last try they would have won which meant Wrights Bush would have been the winner of the Hamilton Shield.
Several Winton juniors were included in the team, they were; B. Harvey on the wing, and played a great game for Winton the previous week, scoring a try.
The three brothers, Bruce Overton, Ian Overton and Guy Overton made up the inside backs for Central star.
