    I think Rob would have taken extra care to avoid any poaching or perceived poaching of players after what happened circa 2000 with the current Qld Coach at the time.
    I don't think it's in Robs nature to take advantage of his current position to feather his nest for next year.
    Pauly was I understand always going to go to Sumnnybank.

    Of course he's gone over there to be with his friends.
    Whispers, he, like every coach will poach, tell porkeys, general bullsh-t, butter 'em up to get prospective quality players into his team and club. May even tell the prosective player's mum she is gorgeous, desirable and should have been a model and the dad that he was unlucky not to have played for Australia, Samoa, Tonga, The Blacks

    Jez what happened way back in 2000 when kero lights were on the stands at Ballymore. Mate I have trouble remembering what happened so far back and am surprised that you were of sufficient age to recall detail - think they used to have Radiograms back then :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao:

    The current Qld coach who was also a coach at a GPS school while at the National champs secured the services of some interstate players for his school - used his influence in an unconscionabe manner - (you know about that term don't you). Caused a great deal of brewhaha.

    I doubt Rob did anything at all - he is too much of a stand up 'stratighshooter' to use his position of trust with the Aussie schoolboys to unconscionably influence players to join his club.

    who was the young prop who was playing in the premiere grade final for souths? i thought it was Paul Alo Emile?

    there were big wraps on him, so I guess i just joined the dots.

    That's him..man-child. No fear and seems to be a tough customer. I wonder whether he is big enough for the major leagues?

    Yeah don't reckon he is big enough - is a very tough young man and may have to beef up but move to Hooker to get his shot - other bloke Paul A-E is huge but has been playing little kiddies so will be interesting, as it always is to see if has same ticker when he gets to play with the big older tough boys

    I'd go with the TSS 1st XV from 2007. They were all class across the paddock and their backline was absolute dynamite. The opposition teams they played against were no slouch either, with Nudgee fielding Joseph Tomane, James O'Connor and Elih Baillie, BSHS fielding Will Tupou, Matt To'omua, David Feao, the Mafi brothers and ACGS had Aidan Toua and Jake Shatz. They absolutely annihilated the field that year and I just think they deserve top spot when it comes to discussing the best schoolboys team in recent times, maybe not ever but recently.

    W 2010, with that kind of intimate knowledge I find it hard to believe you would wear a blue jersey!

    You will obviously recall that the TSS backline had Swanepoel (OZ player) at half, Lance (OZ A 12 and captain) at 10, Morahan (now a Qld Red) on one wing, Tapuai (OZ 2 years) at 12, and Stapleton( Cronulla Premier) at 13.

    Seriously good team!

    Believe me speckie, I'm blue through and through. I'll pop my head out and nominate the Joey's side of 2004 as the best NSW Schoolboys side. They had Kurtley Beale, Pauliasi Taumoepeau, Nicholas Woolf and Pat McCutcheon who were all Australia Schoolboys players except for Beale. They had a wonderful team and they dismantled their closest rivals Riverview 31-12 if I recall correctly.

    The eight selected from BSHS in an Australian Schoolboys touring party is a record for one school, beating the the seven from Joeys in 1990. That vintage yielded Matt Burke and Peter Jorgensen as well as John Isaac (coach of Biarritz), let's hope the BSHS lot throw up a few blokes as good as them.

    And then the 5 from Epping Boys High in 1971 - 3 consecutive Waratah Shields

    it was actually 9 from BSHS. One was dropped or injured from the team. Then there was a QLD League player in the BSHS team from this year. That to me pretty much sums BSHS as the leading team, however I still think TSS would be a good comfpetition. It really comes down to BSHS 09 or TSS 07.

    Nor were Churchie 06, but neither matched TSS 07. The other measure of excellence is how the national team did against NZ and others. 07 ahead on that score.

    Dave is without a doubt the fastest and most powerful prop in Australia (if not the world). His gameday weight is 105kg, which obviously puts him a little light. Shame though, he does things no other prop anywhere can do and although his 'technical' game was a real weakness, he has improved alot in that area. Hopefully rugby can hold him, he would be a world class leaguey.

    I Hope PAE lives up to the hype in the long term. Not having seen him much apart from some NTS sessions, I hope he isn't just dominating due to his size. The fact qld has signed him and he is big, tends to mean he will be a bust like the 1000 other schoolboys we have signed.

    Also, there was the mention of TSS 07 producing 3 wallabies. Could anyone enlighten me of whom? I must be having a mental blank.

    Going back a few 97 Nudgee were pretty hot for Brisbane rugby, while most of their 00 side have gone on to at least premier and a bunch to S14.

    TSS 07 produced Morahan. That's all I can think of at the top of my head. Your a bit eager on Feao he is a good prop but I can't see him making the breakthrough unless he leaves QLD or waits until a few more years. As props are generally not a good investment until their early 20's

    yes TSS won in 2006 and 2007
    as for wallabies from the o7 team - i don't recall anyone saying that and Moraghan is the only one so far to pull on the GAG jersey but not in a test - yet. There some who may.
