    I wonder if any Shore coaches will end up at Joeys next season

    Rest assured RFL, tis a happy shed. Well organised with motivated coaches and crews. Boys already talking abt 2015 with enthusiasm.

    Thanks for the summary, really good background. I have seen Kinross building over the years, but where is St Augustines coming from? I have never seen them before. Obviously very small program but I have noticed they had a great season.

    St Augustines are based out of Mosman. Coaches are a husband and wife team of Matthias Ungemach (1991 World Champ and WBT holder M4+) and Judith Ungemach (nee Zeidler) (Gold 1988 W8+, Bronze 1992 W8+). 2 of the kids from their four are nominating for National (junior) Selection in a four with a kid from Joeys and another from Riverview.

    Thank you for the insight, good to see that a non traditional rowing school invests in the sport. Looks like a lot of coaching horse power for a small school.

    Indeed, Bjarne is in Year 9 - risk is that program may collapse once he finishes.

    Worst case is it was good while it lasted. Best case is that schoolboy rowing in Sydney expands beyond the myopic GPS.

    I have heard some more, that they have a second son coming through St Aug as well, which might keep them at the school for a while. The squad is only that four and two quads in Yr8 and 9. It will never compete against a full GPS program, but they seem to develop quality crews with limited resources. Good on them and keen to see how they go at Junior trials and next season.

    Too early to tell Alfred though what the heck.

    Joeys will be up there as have great depth and culture. However their winning 2015 crew is all but one in Yr 12 so will be impacted.

    Scots I think are the up and coming school and have a win at all cost mentality so who knows may import if need be. Anything it seems to get in the papers. Is it just me though every time I open the Sun Herald there is an article with a Scots mention / picture ?

    Shore will be determined to win back the Major Rennie metal. Their weekly newsletter already has training information for term IV.

    Iggies, New, Kings, Grammar and High will fight out the minor placings.

    Probably all wrong though there you have it..
