If it was an even $10 I’d make the trip from Botany down to Sylvania but $15 for one game of Division 5 rugby is an absolute joke
I would think the way forward would be;
Div 1 - 4 Grades + Colts (10 teams)
So we have;
Haven’t heard anything but a search of their Facebook makes me think it’s probably sevens
Seems relatively balanced however I think you’ll find Maccabi will end up in Div 5 (2 grades with the Jewish Games this year). That would probably.
Speaking as a Dukes player and committee member, we were really looking forward to this weekend to play against you guys in the first place.
Well they joined us from the old Mac Crusaders and some league boys here and there, Merrylands is closer to home for them I suppose plus i'm.
Correct, completely forgot about that.
I'd be VERY surprised if Merrylands can't throw out 2 grades each week. A large contingent of our (Dukes) 2nds last year transferred there for.
Another 2 to add to the list - Kings OBs and Roseville. Both bitten the dust this last offseason. Kings OBs with a feint glimmer of a club as they.
RE: Running two grades - Dukes are looking like we'll be thereabouts (approx same numbers as last season).
Last years Blacktown 1sts at full strength would have been a treat to watch play against some higher divisions.
Any ideas on player retention from season to season? What works and what doesn't? Would appreciate any input on this.
Have a specific memory of the Engadine fullback/winger running back a kick into a spear tackle. Referee put the whistle to his mouth and thought.
Back in the days of your ACT Brumbies style jerseys, remember watching Engadine run around against Matraville at the high school before they bit.
Is it time already for the NRC to disappear?
My thoughts are a resounding yes.
Why not drop the competition back to the remaining 4 super rugby.
Rough go mate. Really feel for you after all the BS at the end of last year and bleeding into this year. Sadly not much you can do to make people.
Div 5 Rd 10 predictions -
2 games this week after the Dukes already played against Maccabi a few weeks back (a vast majority of the Maccabi side.
Dukes were formed from multiple avenues. The main one being a bunch of mates from Oatley 3rds/4ths and a few Matraville league.
Just from a quick look at the Illawarra and Central Coast rugby sites, both teams couldn't be too thrilled with their 2017. Both are well out of.
