    Can't help you there- all I know is that it won't be a full-strength Knox team as any of their players still playing 1st Grade Criket/Basketball in the CAS competitions won't be allowed to play.

    Yes it is pretty early. Usually most Schools kick off in Easter holidays followed by trials in early Term 2.

    interesting. have heard of st augustines in the past being quite the formidable side as of the past couple of years.
    should be an interesting game against knox if knox is anything like their 03, 08 and 09 counterparts..

    Entertaining game- St.Augustines 31 Knox 15.
    Reasonable performance from both teams this early in their season. Auggies had a very slick bacline and were able to penetrate Knox backs, especially in 2nd half. Admittedly the Knox Coach obviously in `triall mode' and would have subbed up to a dozen players whilst Auggies used few replacements.
    Knox impressed in the forwards with a fairly destructive rolling maul but as previously stated Auyggies too good in the backs.

    trials tend to see schoolboy coaches interchanging alot but would have been good for those schoolboys to get a run on the SFS albeit with a small crowd after looking at the attendance record for the waratahs..

    chosen who were stand outs?
