    I know for a fact that Churchie will not be going uncontested, but BBC have and will continue to go uncontested

    Congrats on your vast network of rugby contacts,
    You have either:
    1) contacted the dir of rugby & 14A coaches of the 4 remaining schools to play the mighty NC 14A;OR
    2) you are listening to gossip.

    A wise man once said "it is out of touch scrum doctors like you that have caused GPS football numbers to now double that of rugby"
    Keep it up and NC can scrum each other each week.

    Regarding uncontested scrums in the lower age groups and grades..how about that the team that has to request uncontested scrums simply has to play the whole game with one less player on the field (I am assuming that would mean one less back)? That should balance things out a bit and help to motivate teams to increase their front row capability.

    quote="Patriot, post: 1085048, member: 86139"]I reckon 85% of games played between NC and GT had uncontested scrums,including some A games. I was at a jnr club game today and watched a team with an experienced front row call uncontested scrums, not because of injury but because they were being completely dominated by their opponents. This allowed the team to be more competitive, it evened up the contest somewhat. This is a deliberate tactic and referees never question the motives. It’s disgraceful and teams that take advantage of the rule should not be credited with a win should they be ahead at full time.[/quote]

    But they have had 2 terms to prepare !!-to quote you.

    nah, denying a boy the chance the play the game.

    I like the idea of free kicks to the opposition at scrum time for any team that can't scrum properly.

    Of course, safety first and all that.

    A lot of the grammar schools think that way. When I was at IGS the headmaster fought (and failed) to have the points table removed from the GPS Comps. It wasn’t about protecting kids, but about pushing school work ahead of rugby.

    I no longer live in QLD but I played in lower grade levels and then reffed B/C/D games for 6 years

    Some observations
    - Around 50% of games below A level have uncontested scrums
    - the lack of scrums would result in props being subbed off and replaced with mobile backrowers

    don't blame the coaches, blame the schools program, and also the state of aus rugby which see's many kids rock up not knowing what a contested scrum is.

    Gungenia don’t be drawn in by a Churchie lad with a big chip on his shoulder trolling for for reactions.

    Looks like Churchie has picked up a point.
    Can someone remind me about the points. It seems that there are set points for win (2) and draw (1) with no bonus points? And for and against have no effect on placement?

    Can’t explain Churchies point but looks like the algorithm sorts by alphabetical order rather than percentage. Basically this is just another spectacular failure by RA administration. Get onto the the junior RL or AFL websites and their results pages are fantastic in comparison. #sackraelene

    Maybe they drew with the bye ?

    On a serious note, no bonus points , no relevance of for and against.

    Only number of wins matter.

    Most number of wins = you win .

    Same number of wins as another school , but still the most = shared premiership, F&A doesn’t even get considered .

    So, back to the main stage this week. A game that will really change the top 4. NC vs IGS at Ippy. A Nudgee win will leave TSS and BBC sitting a game clear, or can IGS take the goodies at home and further derail Nudgees season. Thoughts?

    This is either incompetency or a conspiracy at the highest levels!! I think it’s well past time we had a Royal Commission to address these issues along with uncontested scrums by 14 year kids. In my day we had to walk all the way from Toowong train station and up Moggill road to get to school. It was a mild incline! No Ubers back then. Kids today have it too easy.

    I think Nudgee will deal with Ippy quite easily. Nudge defence will be far superior to other teams that Ipswich have faced thus far. Ipswich may struggle for a win again this season.

    GT scored 31 points against NC, I think there's more to worry about from IGS.

    I hear the QRU has sought input from Clubs on Colts moving to under 20s next year.
    The majority of boys finishing this year will turn 18 in 2020. Due to the 2 year age gap they will require dispensation to play U20s.
