    The big questions :

    Who is playing?

    What clubs are they playing for?

    Any player movement between clubs?

    Will Gordon go 1 step further and win a title?

    Will everyone still hate Uni?

    Banter away

    Wests have been recruiting heavily, mainly from two blues. the players have shown their loyalty to their ex coach who is now at wests and gone with them. i believe 6 of em. it would have been 9 but 2blues enticed 3 of them back with $ and promises of 1st grade (mens) spots

    Easts have been recruiting very well, from country nsw and taken a few dominant u19 from other clubs. my sons best friend has moved from norths to easts

    Watch Manly this year, at full strength went down to Wicks in the first round of the finals last year in a very tight affair.

    There are a quite a few - 15 players on the park so will stick with that. Trys out wide are only scored by earning the right in tight.

    Too think that 9 were going to leave parra for wests with no inducements in nieve..or you have blinkers on. No foach would make promises of first grade spots, they are earned..and the dollars, well all clubs let certain players dlude on rego, and thats counted as payment. Wests im dure offered something to the players to leave, it happens

    Most of them, a large number of them were u 18 last year.
    Both Jack Walsh and Yool Yool played in and won the Kiama 7s last week.
    But a balanced 15 is the strength

    GG As president of the Two Blues I can guarantee that we have not offered cash nor first grade spots to any Colts players.

    Totally untrue. We do not pay anyone a sign on fee and do not guarantee first grade spots. They must be earned.

    GG for a Southern Districts supporter,you seem to have to have an apparent in depth knowledge of all things Two Blues. Which does seem a bit strange.

    Any positive comments for Two Blues or your Southern Districts ?.

    Gday Wazza2013

    I know quite a bit about souths but grade (like curtis rona quickly moving from 2blues to souths), not colts. I know more about parra colts because said player directly told my son who plays for easts colts.

    Anything positive on Two Blues colts - not that I've heard unfortunately. I can tell you Easts colts will be extremely good and strong though as they've signed some very good local and country talent.

    Just my opinion though

    Their culture is building from / through the Juniors - did you see how the 18s went in Vegas last week.
    Doesnt happen overnight it is built.

    Hi dave, yes i certainly get that concept of it. but ive been hearing the same things since the late 80s when i was in colts myself. thats a lot of overnights as you say.

    ive said before, while its a great experience to go vegas for 7s and for those lads, 7s - in the big picture of how a club is going to do in 3 colts team 4 grade teams and a club championship over 18 rounds is very very different.

    Souths and other clubs operate on a different budget to the 2Blues.
    Watch them this year.
