    Joeys have employed a new defence coach to handle the Orcs from the Dark Empire.

    Just once, I would love to see Kings win the spoon. Soory Azzuri, but it will bring balance to the universe.

    Hello QH
    If the 13As lost this will be their first game being beaten. But Scots are strong side in this age group having beaten Joeys 79-0 earlier in the season. New only beat Scots 19-15 last time.

    I will be interesting to see if the Scots 3 and 14 recover from their injuries that took them off the ground in the first half and definitely gave the advantage to New, that and the yellow card.

    What ever the case Hunters Hill will be a cracker. Correct me if I am wrong but the last time both Scots and Joeys were playing for all the smarties in the last round at Hunters Hill was 1994. However in that year Scots lost to high in the opening round and I think Joeys tied with Shore..again I could be wrong.

    What a day of rugby it will be next Saturday at Hunters Hill.

    In the 1sts it's winner take all and a draw will be a shared premiership between Joeys and Scots. No other schools are close enough to figure in this.

    In the 2nds, Joeys already has at least a share of the premiership. If Joeys win they are undefeated premiers. If Joeys lose to Scots and Riverview beat Newington then Joeys and Riverview would share the 2nds premiership.

    In the 3rds, Joeys already has at least a share of the premiership. If Joeys win they are undefeated premiers. If Joeys lose to Scots and TAS beat Riverview then Joeys and TAS would share the 3rds premiership.

    However, I don't think Joeys are planning to share anything :)

    Joeys 4ths and 16As are also undefeated so it will be a big day on #1 field.

    1994 Joeys won 1st and 2nd XV OUTRIGHT. Was there that day and it was the biggest crowd I have ever seen at the crowd. Must get those sprinklers looked at again..

    In 1965 Newington came to Hunters Hill to play for the premiership. It was in the days of the old three point try, Joeys won 3-0 and were crowned champions. Crowd was about 15,000 according to those more knowledgeable than me. And yes, the place was packed.

    Yep, I was there too and the sprinkler "malfunction" is amusing...to look back on. Time heals.
    The last minute withdrawal of Australian schoolboy halfback Doug Bursill was a serious setback for the Scots team.

    Scots were enormous against the Joeys mighty midgets. Bigger hearts won in the end + a sprinkler

    Here is the match summary from the Joeys 1994 Magazine.

    [IMG]

    Scots kicked off in front of an estimated crowd of 10,000 in the match to decide the premiership. The Scots bigger forward pack immediately started to play the rolling maul to great effect. In the third minute Scots had St Joseph's under pressure with a high ball under the posts. They regathered to near the posts. The conversion gave Scots the lead 7- 0. From the kick off, St Joseph's kicked to Scots backs where Simpson was able to regather the ball.

    From the next ensuing ruck, St Joseph's were awarded a penalty which Hannon converted. 3-7. Scots were starting to win the majority of the possession and were attacking inside the St Joseph's 22. From a maul their backs were able to find space to send their speedy winger over for a try in the corner 3-12. All the pressure was on St Joseph's, who needed to win some possession to mount an attack. Another deep kick by Hannon to the Scots backs proved successful, with their winger failing to find touch. Thompson was able to mount a counter attack with Rogan and Shepherd to support. The ball was fed to Griffin who had little space but was able to out-sprint the cover defence to score in the corner. 8-12.

    Our forwards were starting to make some strong effective tackles on their counterparts. They resisted the Scots attack who were using their big forwards as battering rams charging at the line. On two occasions the Scots forwards were held up over the line and forced back. Scots maintained the pressure but solid tackling by Thompson and Shepherd held the line. A ruck infringement gave Scots a further three points. 8-15. From the kickoff, St Joseph's were able to move into the Scots half. Hannon was able to kick a 45 metre penalty to close the gap to 11-15. On half time he kicked another penalty to end the half at 14-15.

    In the second half Scots continued their lineout domination. However, Rogan was able to put us back on attack with a fine counter attack deep inside his 22. From an ensuing ruck, St Joseph's were awarded a penalty. Harmon kicked the goal to put St Joseph's in the lead for the first time in the match. 17-15. A crucial tight head to Harvey put the team on the attack. The ball was sent out to the backs with Griffin tackled down the line. From the lineout, Radford went close to scoring but was forced back. An opportunity went begging when from a five metre scrum the backs spilt the ball in attack. Scots were able to relieve the pressure and start mounting their own attack.

    Scots were winning the majority of possession from the lineouts and mauls. Time and time again they were mounting attacking raids inside St Joseph's 22. Only desperate defence by both forwards and backs kept Scots from scoring. With 15 minutes to go Rogan counter-attacked again deep inside his 22. From the ensuing ruck Shepherd made a fine break through the Scots forwards to put some sting back into the St Joseph's attack. With ten minutes left, St Joseph's won a scrum on half way. The backs decided to play a decoy centre split with Shepherd going wide and changing the angle. He was able to break the Scots centre and with two players hanging on to him he passed the ball to Wheeldon on the fly. Wheeldon had to beat the full back and the cover coming across. This he was able to do, and scored out wide. This made the score 22-15 in our favour.

    With seven minutes to go, Scots hammered the St Joseph's line. From a lineout near the 22, Scots second rower made a bursting run on the short side, only to be tackled by the smallest player on the field in Steven Devine. For the last few minutes of the game the premiership was on the line, with the much bigger Scots forwards charging for the line, only to be turned back by the smaller St Joseph's pack. In the end St Joseph's were able to withstand the Scots onslaught to win the match and the premiership 22-15.
