Asquith had no Ron Massey Cup team in 2017 due to no recruitment and fielded only a Sydney Shield team because of lack of numbers. To be in the mix with the big clubs so soon after that is an achievement in itself, especially when their best players get taken by Norths who then send back inferior players as replacements. They have never had 2 strong teams when in both grades until last season. Their shield team would be flogged and struggle to field 17 players when they had a Massey team. They are now lock ins for the finals in both grades. Not even the big clubs enjoy going to Storey Park.
