    Your mighty NC 14A's have fallen.

    In yesterdays game the IGS 14A forward pack were outstanding and dominanted the breakdown.
    Their scrum was so powerful that we won 3 against the head and
    their talented No10 had the game on a string.

    IGS 17 - 0 NC 14A

    4wins from 4

    The boys from the bush put on a show against BBC having beaten them 35-12. showing a skillful team all round, although BBC didn't start off with a full strength team, it seemed that they were adding more and more first XV players by the minute. Downlands played some class of rugby with 8,7,12,13 and as always 15 shown to be big stand outs

    Delighted for Red Blue but respectfully I don’t believe there were many current 1st XV players out there yesterday it was mainly 2nds, 16A n a few returning from injury on display so there combinations would have been poor. Please see run on side vs 3rd round team lists below. Your Neighbours TGS didn’t put up much defence against TSS yesterday.

    Put it into perspective - 20 points scored by Nudgee in the last 15m of what was a one score game

    Maybe some tired legs with a couple of the IGS forwards but it was clear they really missed Ethan King in the midfield / outside defense where it got cracked open

    Credit to Nudgee however who are hitting their straps at the right time

    Ipswich still in it if they can win through the remainder of games that do include BBC ( next week ) and TSS in the 2nd last round )

    Approaching the halfway mark of the season. Is anyone willing to hack a crack at a current team of the season?

    If that was Pasitoa’s best game yet than the Brumbies are going to be hugely disappointed. Let’s look at where Nudgee are going to win this Premiership. Jock Thompson is a machine. His focus and passion will bring this team forward. Trezman is an opportunity king with his elusive play. Harry Vella is a force that gives our most impressive back Dan Muller the points on the board. Let Finn kick for goal with his far better kicking.
    TSS and BBC are still undefeated, so let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

    Well said RR I totally agree 100% with your comments:

    Pasitoa is not playing to the anywhere near the same high level as years gone by, whether it be with ball in hand, defence or his kicking game - is he injured?

    Jock Thompson is exceptional in every facet of his game, by far one of the standout players this year.

    Nudgee are definitely contenders but they need to turn over a lot less ball and then it all depends on whether TSS drop a game and let them back in. This weekend will probably be the best game to gauge how BBC compare to NC when they take on Ipswich.

    I watched Jock Thompson play for Country in under 13 or 14’s as a fly half, ahead of Gordon (22). It is not until this year again I have seen his passion and aggression. Very impressive. Hoping to see more.

    The Downlands 15 is the best player I have seen this year-but BBC had only 1 1st xv player from week before on the field.

    Keep crowing & bringing in the number of imports you do & you my find TSS & NC only get to play each other.
    As others have already said-the Dir of Sport & Headmasters have already spoken about it.
    It will be the same 2 teams next year as it was last year.'The real shame is that TGS actually won the 2nd xv game yesterday against TSS as did ACGS v TSS-if that does not show a "stacked" 1st xv then nothing does.

    What comes around ...
    I mean as you both pointed out"they have had 2 terms to sort it out" Shit happens you know.

    Slightly different starting a game with uncontested scrums and going uncontested in the second half due to injuries to props.

    They had a couple of uncontested scrums today in Prem Grade when 2 Jeeps props were shown yellow within about 30 seconds of one another and had already lost a prop to injury, they had no props left to bring on.

    Shit happens, no one is accusing them of using it as a tactic to avoid scrums .

    Tipping results yet Jets?
    I think this season still has plenty of entertaining and dangerous games left. The talk about the comp being over smells of either bitterness or gloating.

    GT lost the game mate and have no points to lose
