    Well whats the rumour on the coaching fronts..

    Churchie, TSS, Nudgee, Toowoomba- stable
    Grammar - advertising
    GT - might be changes due to committment levels
    BSHS - surely this year they are changing
    BBC - probably stable but hey who knows

    How is the mighty red and white of IGS shaping up for next season? Pretty disappointing this year to be honest, with 0 wins.

    Actually think that there will be a lot of pressure for some of those to hold their spot next year will be great to see GT with some real depth in 2016

    I count 8 who have played in the firsts this year with another 7 that trained with them, 2 of these had some bench time, 2 are currently in year 10, injuries during pre-season and trials kept the rest off the paddock.
    2 will be playing their 3rd season next year. 3 will be turning 18.
    Add some handy players from the 16's and maybe 2016 will be a better year for BGS. This cohort had a particularly strong forward pack a few years ago when they were all together. However, couldn't contest scrums this year in the 16s with such a depleted team.

    New head coach and new forwards coach may or may not be a good thing at this stage. Time will tell.
    No idea about any "new boys".
    Not talking BGS up, just saying that they should be more competitive if things click.
    I expect GT will have a much better year next year as well.

    Unfortunately Realdeal word around BSHS is that the current First XV coach will be back again next year.

    On a serious note, State high, Nudgee and TSS to be the favourites this coming year. High number of boys plating again and some solid coaching units

    TSS have a fair few boys back from this year with Dowd, Mavoa, Day, Lolesio, Blyth, Mcelroy and Siggs who started a few games but despite that the 16A's for them this year were amazing. Im expecting a solid 2016 season from them.

    I see Churchie finished there rugby season on a high beating TSS in the rugby 7's final on the weekend. I'm not sure that they will be in the hunt next year but the last 2 years have been outstanding and I think they have exceeded all expectation. I'm not sure they have many back for next year.
    Next year it will finish something like this:
    TSS
    Nudgee
    Terrace
    BBC
    I thing the others will struggle.

    I loved those Irish Teams from the 70's and early 80's

    The famous Munster win ( I think in 77 or 78 ) with the great Tony Ward at 10 waxing the All Blacks on tour ...Rugby Legend

    But I digress ...

    Toowoomba Grammar are the Horsemen of the Apocalypse that are a comin...

    Nudgee and TSS probably have the best coaches in the comp. But State high probably the worst..
