    It would be great if they updated the stands at the home ground. They could get more seating in for us old blokes then. Always impossible to find a seat unless you get there by 10:00am!

    OK but not all are posted up here. How do we get it posted here I guess is the question

    Agree, why don't they publish the matches each week? Each team no doubt gets videos of the other ones each year anyway. Publish the games on a website, there could even be commentary- it would be kept positive in line with the fact they are schoolboys-along a similar line to what happened at the schoolboy championships this year.

    I wouldnt be surprised if it was temporary seating.
    i dont think they're too hard to erect; similar to aluminium scaffolding.
    They always put up the ropes and marquees in time for the 1sts to play so they might be going the extra yard with seating too.

    Many (possibly all) of the QLD GPS 1st XV matches are lived streamed each Saturday, with commentators. Is shame we (GPS and CAS in NSW) dont do the same. No doubt the schools have their reasons. And cost is probably one of them.

    Could be a big investment from higher up rugby circles to invest in the game if they thought it was viable.

    There is a lot of appeal for schoolboy rugby.

    Do the Rugby circles in here arrange any end of year awards for players?

    Ie do the schools come together to announce best players and so forth like the QLD GPS system?

    Agree re interest but i doubt its commercially viable. A mate who worked at fox once told me it costs between $50 and $100k per match to cover one shute shield / nrc game

    Old school broadcast with expensive equipment and cameras.
    I suspect the mob doing the Qld GPS are a quantum step lower than this

    Green and Gold writers select a team of the year, best player, most valuable player etc.

    What more recognition could a player want ;)

    Stay tuned. Will be published right here mid next week.

    Could it not simply be streamed from the cameras they use at the games already?

    They would need a few extra pieces of equipment but wouldn't be very expensive. Especially at schools like Cranbrook, Knox and Barker where their fields are on site and have access to the schools wifi and power. Should definitely be something the schools should look into. Even just a single camera setup would be fine. I know it's done in Queensland but also many schoolboy rugby games around the world. Most South African schools do it and i'm sure lots of them have smaller budgets than Brook and Knox.

    VIDEO OF THE SATURDAYS MATCHES - esp W v K

    If anyone gets any decent video footage on their phone from Saturdays games eg a try or post match premiership celebrations, that they think would be worth including in the match reports, send me a private convo and we can see if we can transfer the video.

    File size is likely ti be too big to text or email. But should be transferable if uploaded to a Facebook page.
