    Yes, its very disappointing. The last game is set up to be special. Photos of the Year 12 team mates are taken after the game etc.
    A poor show indeed.

    Just a quick note: It was me who jumped to the conclusion that Knox could've sensed a mismatch - I'm not defending the late notice forfeit, but don't know the reason!

    tgam56,

    Now you mention '79, recon I played against you at Barker, last game of the year v Waves, and the comp up for grabs, but you are right, these things stay with you forever.

    Yeah I know mate but the schools are close and the coaches know each other. They could have sorted out something to give the boys a run. That is all they wanted. Anyways lets keep things positive - we all have great matches to look forward to tomorrow anyway. The weather looks like it will be fine, the BBQ's will be on and all will be well. Tomorrow is a Big Day.

    the "reason" given was that "as they had no chance of winning it wasnt worth the effort"

    Pretty poor attitude

    I totally agree - i was just letting everyone know that i was "assuming" the reason for the forfeit was a mismatch. All good.
    And good luck to ALL tomorrow!

    A few injuries from Cranbrook losing 2 or 3 starters from the Aloys game. I think their prop Barta and I also heard Rynolds is out aswell. Peter milios however should be returning after playing half a game in the 2s last week and hopefully Barker allow Tom Lamens to play.

    Cranbrook's scrums is not due to a mismatch but instead due to unavailability. They scrummed against every other team and planned to against waves but couldn't due to an injury in the warm up. You look at how many front row injuries they have and you can see why. Smuha-ho, Barta, lim-Strachan, Reynolds, Head, Andreas and Sprague. There seconds team have been in uncontested scrums for a few weeks now because of this aswell. Both Hayman and maybe even Banks are young which means they would have to get special permission from ARU which would be hard as they are both decently small. I don't think Cranbrook hate scrummaging but it's not worth a kid getting a serious back or neck injury because he only learnt to scrum in a week.

    The toupee will b on show again today. See if you can see him in action and ask him yourself. Perhaps the afternoon tea at Queens Park will be a good opportunity to enquire or observe the most expensive toupee money can buy.
