It is done.
Its been good! See you all next year
Was great banter and some good insights into all the teams. I do love the "I haven't seen XXX team play but I reckon we are going to smash them" also some of the one eyed love of their teams.
Despite my post being deleted I do believe that in some cases the drive of some boys on scholarships "yes we all know they exist" when things aren't going as expected seems to wane. Also some that play league as well seem to attract a disproportionate number of yellow cards
Looking forward to next year and my early thoughts even as a Barker parent that it will be a good one for Waverly
Sorry to be so one eyed folks. But, based on this year's form, Waverley is in a very strong position to do very very well over the next three years, 2020-2022.
Their 2nds (undefeated), 3rds (undefeated), 4ths (undefeated perhaps as well) all CAS champions. U16As CAS champions (never beaten at CAS in their age group). U15As CAS champions (never beaten at CAS in their age group so far).
When did a CAS school last win three or more in a row? Waverley almost did it last year, just falling short against Barker in a classic.
They have the roster to do it, can they do it though? With a bit of luck they can do it.
This post did not age well WLF
No excuses about full strength teams as neither did. We had plenty of Sydney/Metro players out injured watching from the sidelines.
What was the bet again?
Yep, agree WTF.
Lindfield deserved to win no question.
Unfortunately the guy in the middle had an absolute shocker, if you have a look at the vid it was horrendous, but we made too many mistakes and Lindfield were solid.
We look forward to seeing how the Opens go next year!
You sound like Cheika mate. The video will also show our defense was almost impenetrable and your two tries were from long range turnovers. The ref made some curious calls both ways, but we won the breakdown without question and then your outside backs seemed to not be able to number up when we were in attack.
I was disappointed not to see young WLF with much ball, it seemed it got caught up in the halves most of the time which Lindfield capitalised on with rush defence.
Ha, Yep no question Lindfield won the breakdown and defended well,and deserved to win!
Glad its all over now, too much footy in this age group imo, that's why half of both teams were on the side line.
So in the end we lost the GF by 4 points, won more club games than anyone else, and won every school game including all the major GPS schools, including the GPS 16a champions.
My forecast was wrong by 1 game but I think you will have to agree, it was quite a reasonable season.
There will be no club next year, so it will all boil down to school v school, can't wait!
Yes definitely congratulations to Randwick / Waverley / Randwick. I look forward to the next couple of years of CAS footy.
You did lose one game but unfortunately it was the one that mattered the most. Apart from of course the other game you lost, over the June long weekend.
Its a shame Lindfield and Gordon won't compete in this age group again. Maybe Randwick might have been able to come out victors overall somewhere down the track.
I gather the 16As were refereed by James Scholtens . and in my estimation he is one of the better schoolboy referees
but I guess anyone can have a bad day. either way good result to Lindfield.
on the subject of bad days . a mate of mine's son was out at ES Marks competing in athletics . and he is a gun sprinter and not one to normally cast aspersions, but he reckons the Waverley kids . or at least some were acting like complete nobs
he said they were acting like they won the 2019 rugby . oh well, I hope in 2020, Waverley doesn't bring the wrong attitude
No no, it would have been nice to win absolutely everything including the club and rep final games, but our no.1 priority was always our school games, when it's just 1 school v 1 school (not the best of many schools in the 1 team), and that is what people remember most, I am sure you would agree.
Next year it will be exactly that, and we can share more banter then.
Rest assured SDW, that won't happen.
Great game linfeild vs randwick toughed it out till the end both teams, linfeild showed more dominance. Some questionable decisions both way but a few knobs in the linfeild team from what i've heard certainly not my words so don't quote me on this.
can definitely hear you out hear BeaverMenzies, although I was at the colts down at Coogee, word has definitely gone around that the ref was questionable and those boys in the Linfield team were being tossers (per usual). At the end of the day you can't change the result so it its what it is.
Cannot wait for the years to come and the absolute spectacular footy which will be played.
Thanks for the inside info boys, you lost fair and square on the field. Not sure you will have another chance again in club rugby to win against this team.
I think you will find only one punch was thrown, and it wasn't by Lindfield. After the red and yellow cards at the State Champs for unsportsmanlike conduct, perhaps you are the ones getting a bit of a reputation..
WTF, That is not what happened, but let's leave it, it's done.
P.S. These are boys looking for a gee up, ignore them, and you,me, Axe etc can resume our bunkers next year, HA!
WLF & WTF sorry lads wasn’t trying to stir the pot just keen to see what the next season has in store for these young blokes, lots of potential coming through in the next few years.
I’ll speak up in Lindfield’s defence here in that comp grade. Their boys have always been just fine. Polite and gracious.
Anyway, I see Waverley has one more game this season. Are they putting out their 2019 side or the 2020 side?
That's late in the schoolboy rugby calendar. Is it against a touring team?
