9 to go, still 18 to 5
Well done Joey's. Definitely helped with all the yellow and red but played better as a team. Bring on 2020!
Joeys weather relentless pressure from Scots but the D is too good. They breakout, great run from Bokenham, Chan breaks through passes back to Kanaan who shimmies, breaks a tackle and scores under the sticks. Joeys 25 Scots 5
An excellent year for SJC and an excellent send off for Boydy, a man who has dedicated his life to St Josephs.
Robinson given yellow card, with less than 2 to go.
All over 25 to 5. 56th GPS Premiership to Joeys.
Joeys D won them the game.
I’ve had similar experiences with comments made by boys from that school. I also understand that in the 15As there was a pitch invasion by Shore supporters just on half time after a Shore try in which the Kings players were jostled and were clearly affected in the second half
Plus playing a man up for most of the game
I reckon you should send it to their sportsmaster. None of these schools want such behaviour or approve of it.
Congratulations to Joeys
A well deserved premiership!
Update those stats please Joker.
A great season with a lot of very close games.
Year 12 Shore boys sit in the front of the grandstand, how are you sitting behind them?
Anyway, this happens to every GPS winger regardless of the school.
Yes, mass hysteria regarding group behaviour. I have noticed there is no member of staff supervising these boys. So their behaviour is unregulated. On a positive note, individually Shore boys and their parents are excellent people.
Yes! True, of all our GPS schools.
And big congratulations to Joeys.
Congratulations to Joeys today a very deserved Championship win Scots will lament I’ll discipline and season long basic handling errors. Congratulations to all the teams especially the year 12 boys.
The HM, Deputy HM, Sportsmaster, Head of Pastoral Care, etc. all sit behind the boys in the grandstand at Shore. In what way is there no member of staff supervising these boys?
Yes, absolutely report/send it. Everyone is turning a blind eye to what is really going on - perhaps because it is so covert these days or perhaps no-one reports it (you can do this) so it keeps happening. It might help a boy avoid what my son’s been through, even in rugby from his own school not the opposition. At one game, boys in another team took his tee because they thought someone else was better to the extent that in earshot (not knowing we were his parents) they yelled out “why is .. kicking, ... is better”. it turned out my son won the award for best kicker in the school but that meant nothing to them.
This behaviour should be not be tolerated. My son is struggling with anxiety/depression, although not only because of what happened at rugby. However it was his rugby which he had to look forward to so, when he wasn’t given much credit (mainly by his peers) despite playing in an undefeated side (U15D) due to his kicking ability and play at fly half which was replicated the following year in U16D (except the undefeated part), his self confidence and sense of achievement really took a dive.
With the yellow and red cards given out in today’s game (although I didn’t watch to know why they were given), one must question what is going on at some schools. I know last week Scots gave away a penalty try which almost cost them the match.
Great work there. Lauded all season for for the backs attacking prowess yet they won the comp on D. Really a well rounded team. Glad they are all yr11 and will be back next season.. ;-)
How many undefeated premierships do Joeys have now Joker?
I can believe staff members are there but not saying/doing anything. I’ve witnessed first hand at another school within its own grounds. So it’s not just their behaviour to the opposition, it’s to each other.
