    I think Barker favourites for 2018

    My predicted Waverley team

    1. Harley mcguiggan
    2.donnohue
    3. Valentine
    4. Whiteman
    5. Lewis Thompson or a rice
    6. murphy
    7. Molloy
    8. Moretti
    9.? Mackasill
    10. Andrews (c)
    12. Jensen or kallis
    13 towns
    14 Baldwin
    15. Luca Martin

    Waves should be competive but not as strong as 2017, with depth being the issue

    barker will be very competitive next year with many year 11s having had 1st grade experience. reimer and tejcek's nsw experience will be valuable. knox has a strong u16 cohort and will challenge barker. 9 knox players were selected for cas representation and 4 players have nsw experience. waverley will be strong as always, but will find themselves relying on moretti. my very early and undoubtedly inaccurate predicted ladder is:
    1. barker
    2. knox
    3. waverley
    4. trinity
    5. cranbrook
    6. aloysius

    SDW I admire the speed in which you keep the CAS chat on the pump. 2017 is only just complete, with the Waves old boys hang overs still very fresh no doubt and here we are looking ahead to 2018.

    139 pages to go. I guess someone should put up something controversial about the next Juggernaut.

    Doesn't 10 Nercessian turn 19 in 2018, making him ineligible to play in CAS next year?

    If he does then he is not eligible. Good news is that Lochie Dring who locked with Flaherty is back for year 12. So that makes a very solid 2nd row.

    IMO Barker strong favourites for for next year, with Knox behind them. Ps..I'd like some of what Aloys2k18 is smoking.

    If next year remains as a 5 game comp, then you need to immediately think that the teams playing 3 home games have a distinct advantage over those with 2. Waverley lucked in this year with 3, plus the crucial final game against Knox at DV. Having said this, I believe Waverley had the team to have won with a less favourable draw.
    Say Barker draw Knox, Waverley and Aloysius at home, and Cranbrook and Trinity away, they will be almost certainties.
    Maybe the bottom three from 2017 will be given the extra home game to level things up. This could bring Aloys right into the mix.

    Early Prediction for Knox:
    1. J Frear (1st)
    2. S Kennedy (1st / U16A)
    3. W Kablau/K Haslam (U16A)
    4. H Kinsey (2nd)
    5. D Williams (2nd)
    6. D Glassie (Injured)
    7. D Brenden (U16A)
    8. O Cheal (U16A)
    9. T Constable (U16A)
    10. J McInerney (2nd If he can play) / S Rechner (U16A)
    11. O Evans (U16A)
    12. T Leigh (1st / 2nd)
    13. T Cameron (1st)
    14. P Sherlock (2nd)
    15. F Watson (1st)

    The 2017 season has just ended, so this is definitely going to change.

    Apart from Galloway, is there any freakish Lloyd like speed in this team that you may know of Rod?

    Anyone have a potential CAS 1 and 2 team for next year? I feel like the team will be fairly spread between schools. Keen for a great offseason!

    Completely agree, I really hope they make changes to try find a more even playing field for schools* with smaller numbers, eg Cranbrook, Aloys

    Expanding a bit on my last theme, does any school have particular stand out players coming through and if so, what are their skills/attributes to look out for e.g speed/size or ability in rucks/mauls etc.

    Would expect that we go back to the way it was in the "old days" and schools will alternate so that the home games in 2017 will become away fixtures the next year. So Barker would have Knox and Aloys at Hornsby and Trinity, Waverley and Cranbrook away. In fact if I think back to my own playing days in the dim and distant past that was the split we used to have then.

    Is Ilias (T) back next year? If so, he'd be my pick at 10.
