    A big congratulations to the NSW CHS team who competed in the St John Easter Rugby festival in Johannesburg South Africa this weekend.


    In the 3 games the results were as follows:

    V Parktown lost 26-19 in a scrappy affair in wet conditions where the refereeing certainly didnt favour NSW CHS.

    V Paarl Boys lost 67-0 against the very impressive South African Schools Champions. Wow they are talented!

    V Florida won 29-7 in a strong performance that augurs well for the rep season ahead.

    Best of luck to all boys in their upcoming selection trials.

    Players to watch:

    Forwards Harry Turner (Capt and Flanker), Netane Talanoe (Prop) and Will Bremner (Hooker)

    Backs Billy Carberry (Vice Captain and Fly Half), Hayden Pomare (Half Back), Lewis Cooper (inside centre)

    I am sure all boys had a terrific experience touring South Africa and will carry lifelong memories that a Rugby tour provides :D

    Of your players to watch, Turner is the only one in the team list above.

    So is that team listed not the A team?

    As with all things Rugby finding any information is like sifting through a haystack!

    I cant comment on the above list being the incumbent first XV selection but what I can tell you having watched the games, the starting team for the final match which included the boys I mentioned looked the most impressive.

    Hopefully someone somewhere has a list of tourists.

    Worth watching the 3 games which were streamed and can be found in the following link. http://www.stjohnscollege.co.za/rugbyfestival/

    Very entertaining listening to the Safa commentators. Seemed fascinated with the size of the CHS props. Mind you at between 119 and 131 kg why wouldn't they be!

    Do you know if Badger toured? Was a lock for CHS 1s last year. Still at school.

    I rate Carberry. Saw him play last year. He is a Mudgee boy and there are plenty of raps for him.

    Don't recall hearing "Badger" mentioned. Distant relative???:p

    Carberry I imagine has been on the radar for quite a while through various Rep Programmes. Strong in attack and has a solid boot. Like a lot of fly halves looks a lot better with a dominant forward pack in front.

    My only criticism would be his error rate under pressure. This may limit higher honours but very entertaining to watch. Certainly enjoys running into contact.

    The one to really watch will be Turner. Plays a great #7 game. A serial pest and strong on the ball.

    Here is the starting XV for the second game
    vs Paarl Boys 15/4/17

    You were correct Armchair selector the majority of the starting XV for this game is seen as the A team.
    The games were 30mins each way and unlimited, rolling subs were allowed. Their policy is every boy would start a game during the tour and get to play approximately 3/4 of every game. obviously changing as a result of injuries or game plan

    1. Natane Talonoa
    2. Will Bremner
    3. Jayden Lynch

    15. Dallas Patterson (vc)

    Please note Dallas Patterson is the vice captain of the team not Billy Carberry, unfortunately their was a typing error in the festivals program that the commentators were reading from, the attached snap shot of the program shows the error as well as all the players
    on tour.

    I can also confirm Tom Badger is on tour and that Billy Carberry played for NSWCHS II last year

    Harry Turner
    Dallas Patterson
    Natane Talonoa

    All Played for the Metro West Rams U17's Junior Gold team in 2016 going undefeated throughout the campaign, making Junior Gold history for being the first NSW Junior Gold team to win the southern conference (def ACT on the whistle!) and winning the National JGC championship that was held as a curtain raiser to the Reds and Tahs game at Suncorp stadium defeating Brisbane City with an impressive 33 - 3 win.[IMG]

    I will be watching with some interest to see how many of these boys get selected for Nationals. Could be a good contribution by CHS which would be very good for Rugby.

    Been a digging amongst the proverbial haystack. came up with this match review

    NSWCHS v Hoërskool

    Monday 17/4 the last game of the festival saw the boys take on Hoërskool Florida, which is an Afrikaans high school situated in Florida, Roodepoort, South Africa. Florida had previously pushed the no. 3 ranked team in SA all the way, only to lose in the dying seconds. The CHS boys started very positively into a strong breeze. Great defense and work at the breakdown saw the boys make a break down the left touchline for Will Bremner to fly over in the corner. A second try to Joey Walton saw CHS lead 12-0 at half time. Florida sensed a massive upset (in their eyes) and became very physical in the second half. This was to be their undoing as the boys stuck to coach O'Brien's game plan and with further tries to Harry Turner, Sardy Halbouni and Netane Talanoa, and one conversion each to Billy Carberry and Isaac Williams, the score finished up 29-7. This was a fantastic way to end the tournament.
    The feedback received by the coaching staff and organisers of the carnival, was that the boys were the most respectful of their staff of all of the boys at the carnival. The manner in which they conducted themselves as young men representing NSWCHS, as well as their families, is a credit to all of them.

    Thanks Breaks away for tidying up my misinformation.

    A real shame that NSWCHS and NSW Schools Rugby haven't published or dare I say promoted :rolleyes: this tour.

    There are a number of interested followers who are keen to see how Rugby is going outside the bubble of CAS and GPS!

    A number of familiar names on that list that I am sure we will see more of in the future.

    I agree with you Armchair Selector, NSW Schools & CHS really should be publishing and promoting the schools outside of CSA & GPS a lot more than they have been therefore ..

    I'm going to do my bit for the cause, and upload a Rugby Highlights video of NSWCHS XV vs Hoërskool Florida, the CHS boys last game of the St Johns Easter Rugby Festival which I must say, without a doubt certainly Highlights the CHS boys NGU - Never Give Up attitude, grit and determination clearly seen by those watching.

    looking forward to Schools trial games, I'm thinking after having watched the CHS Boys Tour games, there could be a few upsets at trials from other camps!

    Highlights game:

    CHS will be playing against the GPS boys from the u16's back in 2015 and 2016 who will be the cohort attempting to make the 2017 u18 NSW All schools team.

    SWSRU 16s Championships & Selection Trials - 2015
    Saturday 20th June – Curagul Field, Bobbin Head Rd, North Turramurra
    Pres XV A 38 def CHS II 7
    Pres XV A 29 def CHS I 0

    SWSRU 16s Championships & Selection Trials - 2016
    Saturday 25th June – Curagul Field, Bobbin Head Rd, North Turramurra
    Pres XV A 48 def CHS II 5
    Pres XV A 20 def CHS I 5

    Collectively 2015 to 2016 = GPS has scored 134 points whilst CHS scored 17 points.

    If we use the 2016 as a guide in the u18 GPS v's CHS the scores were -

    1st XV
    GPS 28 to CHS 5
    2nd XV
    GPS 61 to CHS 0

    Collective 89 points to 5

    Can the CHS boys compete against the likes of CAS and GPS in 2017 ??
