    Impressive overview mate, looks like you know a fair bit about everyone. I recognise a few of those names - McDermott - ACGS and Fleming - BGS. Did either go to TSS at one stage?

    Both. Prior to Churchie's Centenary shopping of McDermott and Van Heteran, as well as Grammar's shopping spree of Cornelson, Blackhurst and Flemming

    Fair enough. Why do you regard Terrace so highly, and what will the TSS team possibly look like in your opinion?

    I believe Terrace still have their captain Wilson, along with their three best bowlers in Bester, Prestwidge and Asnica.

    TSS from this year keep

    1. Gibson
    2. Shields
    3. Richardson
    5. Rasmussen
    7. Campbell
    8. Menzies
    10. Lyons
    11. Kuhnemann

    They have added a couple of new students. One from NSW who made the Aus 15's I believe, who can slot into the team, as well as a couple of up and coming bowlers.

    And the new wicket-keeper, Benadie from QLD 15's.

    Terrace do, however, and I'm surprised he wasn't included in the 'key losses' section, lose their star spinner Tom Moreland. Rumour has it he was asked to repeat but really couldn't be stuffed.

    Can you tell us anything more about how the Terrace team will shape up?

    Id switch GT and TSS aound with ACGS a bit higher up in the rankings. But hey, thats just my opinion, I can guarantee their will be a few more key players to add to each teams list that would also sway the predicted placings. But I reckon you're about spot on, great post, you obviously know your stuff when it comes to cricket.

    Impressive top six. I'm guessing that Dennien is going to Grammar next year, after being in the QLD 15's this year. I think five of those top six have played for QLD but I think they are relying heavily upon a couple of players and lack bowlers.

    Not exactly sure why a team with half QLD rep players would be predicted to come fourth. Must be a strong competition?

    Perhaps, but they wouldn't exactly be familiar with the favourites' tag would they ;)

    Will be interested to see how they perform under this expectation - Churchie didn't like it in rugby did they.

    Mate do you have any information about Churchie's team/the team you support?
