this is getting shared around at the moment, mca's highlight reel.
Totally agree mate
It is definitely a tactic used by coaches when their scrum is on skates.
It happens in GPS as well.
It happened in my young blokes club grand final last year.
His team had the dominant pack in the division everybody new it, they made the GF, the opposition called ‘no contest’ and his side lost on the bell.
I reckon it’s cheating
If you havent seen this already, a Padua Old Boy has returned to make a highlight video for every round of Padua's firsts. A quality watch. He has done it for many years now.
Long time reader, first time writer (be gentle.!)
I know this is predominately a rugby union forum but I just wanted to acknowledge the selection of Christian Welch (Villa 2010 undefeated premiers grade 11 and 2011 AIC Rep grade 12), in the QLD State of Origin team for Game 3. Great reward for a hardworking player.
Here's a good article to read about Christian Welch origin debut, training at Easts down the hill from Villa.
I think it's good to see another AIC boy make it on the big stage regardless that it's league.
Where did he play at Villa ( positionally )
Pretty sure he was a 12.
Yes, inside centre #12 . crash ball.!
I just like to see AIC boys make it good on the big stage.
Interesting that union centres become league forwards. I think Angus Crichton and Cameron Murray were both 12s at Scots and Newington in Sydney respectively.
Noticed that Marist Ashgrove were playing their union #12 Josh Radford and crash ball exponent at lock in the Confraternity. His centre partner played left centre and both boys trained at the Reds Academy camp last week.
What other union backs became league forwards ? Is that common?
It can work the other way too . 4 years ago Lachie Foulds was moulded into a Tight Head Prop for BBC ( and performed incredibly well ) despite most of his junior league development being as a 4 . He was connected to the Storm but haven't heard much about him since leaving
Any use starting a league chat on here for the start of the new comp people?
Is there league being played? Is that why the GPS thread is so dead?
Serious question, but does anyone really care about the league comp?
I’m happy enough for the boys to have a season of league post-rugby, but at the moment it’s of no great interest to me.
Yeah first time in a while that league is being played in the AIC for a while. Only one team per grade level and all games are being played at the same school venue. Every week a different school will host the day.
nup. This is a rugby forum. If you want to start a non-rugby thread, then do it over here somewhere:
Can we get a new Thread, 2020 just around the corner now, Pre-Season just about to start, bring on AIC footy.
