    Yes, lets see if the planets align for the final round, I did make the prediction in May :).
    Thought Barker would be the big improvers this year (will be very strong next year) and that Knox did not look as strong as in previous 3 years. Waverley were always going to be hard to beat with the depth they have this year.
    Good luck to all on the weekend

    Caught trying to pull the old two profiles trick using the same IP address.
    A lesson for young punters. G&G have indicators to alert the mods of this.

    But will he be on one of the mini buses rattling down the highway on Saturday morning with intent and purpose?
    Will he be lurking in the crowd at Queens Park?
    Will we ever see the likes of him again?
    mmmmm . intriguing.

    It's pretty simple - it's a privately owned forum, rules are set by the owner, and enforced at his request so posters should read the rules, and post within them. If people don't want to do that, they should not post or find somewhere else on the Internet. It is not a right to post here.
    Posts contravening the rules will accrue warnings and / or bans.
    Attempts to circumvent this usually will not work.
    Multiple posters attempting to turn a sub-forum into a cesspit of crap will result in that being locked, so everyone suffers.
    Easy answer? Don't be a dick.
    I'm not sure why I keep needing to repeat this.
    This is not specifically aimed at you.

    Yes, we should name an annual G&G award in honour of him and all those great times we had.
    The Backline_Move award for the funniest post? for example.
    The most exaggerated post .. will have to think about it.
    In fact, there's a sausage sandwich and 2 snakes in it for anyone thinking of the best award to remember B_M by.

    Why would it be?
    I was referring to the practice of having 2 or more profiles which gets caught out.

    The difference is that is for broadcast quality production. These games don't need that - live streaming of games is very simple. About six months ago I was with a company specialising in live streaming and we contacted a couple of the schools where I had contacts to explain that for as little as $5k they could have a dedicated platform for unlimited streaming - sports, drama, cadets etc. All they'd need were the cameras, which they probably have already. The reception from one was along the lines of thanks, but we know what we are doing. I was a bit surprised, given they've never shown any capabilities. I reckon that QLD GPS stuff is excellent - a step above the vision from the schools championships, but even that was fine. Such a pity as I agree there is an audience - and it's a fine piece of marketing for the schools.

    Although win, lose or draw Waverley win the Henry Plume Shield, I still reckon with all their rep players back they beat Knox by 3 tries

    Having seen Waverley and Knox both play I agree - my prediction is around the 3-4 try/20 point mark.

    Wright/Moretti are just going to explode out of the blocks on home turf. It would be something to watch.

    Those two players are dynamic and can bust the line and offload, but the thing is two other forwards played Combined States, another for NSW1 and another two for NSW2. Tadgh Murphy, the 6 who played so well against Barker will probably start in the 2nds,

    So there's plenty of depth and the coaches have got them playing well as a team and they all back up in attack.

    Anything can happen in this game but I think it depends on the amount of possession each team can gain throughout the game. If Waverley can win 50% then it might be a very entertaining game.

    Question is whether Knox can replicate Barker's shutdown game plan with maybe some runs from the back.
    Certainly seems that Waverley needs to improve line outs, which won't be easy with frost in the line.

    But I'm still tipping a W win by 15

    I totally agree that an nrc / shute shield like production crew would be overkill / not needed for streaming of CAS and GPS games.

    Something like what they have at QLD GPS games would be awesome.

    I have asked a mate to send me pics of the set up used at QLD GPS streams.

    Will post them here if i can get them.

    Is very impressive.
