    Thanks Reg. Are these teams being trimmed before Champs? From memory they could only take 25 players last year.

    I don’t know the kids name (it’s name withheld on rugbylink)

    Wests fullback. Very small and skinny but an absolute livewire. surprised not to see him names in either of the teams.

    2019 Colts 1 Table
    1st Souths
    2nd Brothers
    3rd UQ
    4th Sunnybank
    5th West
    6th East
    7th Bond
    8th GPS
    9th Norths

    URC Player Table
    1st Souths - 11
    2nd Sunnybank - 9
    3rd Brothers - 8
    4th Bond - 7
    5th UQ - 7
    6th West - 6
    7th East - 4
    8th GPS - 3
    9th Norths - 3

    Winners would have to be Sunnybank, Bond - Losers would have to be UQ and possibly Brothers.

    Thoughts?

    Reminds me of 2017 when Souths and Brothers get in an on field fight next to the Souths bench in Colts 1- Two Souths boys joined from the bench after an injured brothers player (in plain clothes and running the tee) ran on and landed a few hay makers. Souths players got 3 weeks; brothers player 2 weeks.. go figure.

    You obviously have an opinion on who should have been picked put your selectors hat on and pick a 15 who did not make it.

    I will have a crack at it later

    But it hard to argue that Bond did very well when the country coach is from Bond they finished 6th in colts one 4 games out of finals and runners up in Colts 2 with a team with lots of colts 1 boys in it. Conflict of interest anyone

    Bond looked good on paper at the start of the year filled with GPS superstars of 2018, but struggled with the physicality of Colts 1 footy in my opinion - first game they were defeated by 50points with all 7 of their URC players on the field.

    Either way congrats to all the lads that made the squads

    Big difference between a GPS season and 3 trials plus 16 games plus finals plus in many boys cases benching either reserve grade or prem grade

    I agree the large selections of the Bond Uni players based on the team's and individual performances by the Bond Uni?Queensland Country coach is a huge conflict of interest.
    Why is this BS continually allowed to happen. Who is checking this process? Similarly, a number of the City selections are very questionable. UQ and Brothers in particular have been ripped off. It is beyond comprehension that Mosiah Christian (UQ half-back) was not selected for example. I could also add Nathan Beil, Fin Hume, Will Wigan, Aiden Latter to that list from UQ. George Tarabay, Rem Sawtell from Brothers, Braydn Croft from Souths.

    Seems schoolboy reputations still count. Give me a break!

    Agree on the Schoolboy reputations just use the eye test
    Wests should also consider themselves fortunate if you have 6 players at that level in a 9 team comp you should be a bit better than an 8 and 8 team

    Here is my view on who should feel unlucky
    From
    Souths Colts 2 front row Kennedy, Lauder and Bingham "Dominated the Bond team that all got picked" second best front row in the comp, Croft outplayed Brothers ten twice in finals, Caleb Brown, The other loosie who did not get picked.
    Brothers a couple probably fiar one or two are doing other things
    UQ Christian the Halfback, Hill the centre Played some Prem grade and another of the Loose forwards
    Sunnybank Huddy but I heard he is injured after a strong start

    Wests with 6 won lotto based on the eyetest
    Easts Probably fair to above average
    Bond with 7 Won Powerball
    GPS about 2 to many
    Norhts TBH probably fair the guys who got picked were in such a poor team at the end that they could not have done anything.d

    You might need to take your Lauries hat off this is senior footy.

    To say that the Souths colts 2 front row should have been in there is blasphemy. All three are good players and could potentially play elsewhere but not deserving of being in these teams. In regards to Croft, how many games did he actually play in colts 1? Don’t get me wrong, I agree he outplayed Pappin especially in the final when Pappin’s catch pass severely let him down but again don’t think he could have been picked (although I believe he’s better than our 10 Hogan).

    Out of the UQ boys, Christian was definitely stiff to miss out and I thought he’d likely be in there but I guess that’s just how the cookie crumbles sometimes.

    Both Jeeps players should have made it (Downes and Tuquiri) and are definitely good enough for this level

    So your argument is that only Colts 1 players should be looked at by that metric you are exactly basing your selections not on what you see but by the reputation.

    Any Colt 2 boy who wants to be in the NRC U19 should be playing Colts 1 or prems week in week out, IMO.

    There was a player who only started in around half a dozen Colts 1 games last year (because of injuries to the normal starters) and balance in Colts 2 who was then selected in 2018 URC and subsequently into Junior Wallabies squad until final cut going into Oceania Champs

    If its the boy I'm thinking of, I see he's made the URC squad again this year and after playing a full year of Colts 1 he'll be better for it.
    Good luck to him, I hope he goes one step further.

    Is Emosi Tuqiri eligible for Junior Wallabies next year after playing for Fiji u20’s this year?

    You think. both U18 head coaches from Brothers, no application process made public to other candidates.

    Hardly any based on last year. Only Van Nek and Lucas (who was a late inclusion) were selected from the two Qld URC teams who were both Grand Finalists. Then out of regular Colts players (more than 3 games) only Joe Cotton was the other inclusion.
