    They were good against Nudgee 15a and definitely will continue to develop and threaten, pretty sure not many from BSHS catchment. Depth might be an issue in opens. But good team, quality players well coached I thought.

    Well KFC its interesting. There are new Sherrifs in town on Merivale St who are great gets for the long term health of the State High program.

    And from what I hear changes are intended. Targets , Style and Structure need to change and if these guys go the distance it probably will. For the better.

    So yeah , over time , it will be interesting to check back on State High in 3 to 4 years

    Very easy to respond to this:

    a) the school is always in the top three or four in tennis for the last 30 years.

    B) Nudgee has won 18 Swimming titles since 1992. That’s a strike rate just under 70 percent. From 1992 to 2003 ie 12 years, the winning strike rate was 100 percent they had one bad year and no, they didn’t buy a swimming squad from grade 5 to 12 (with 18 years olds.) to win both of the junior and senior schools titles this year. The rowing has been 80 percent winning title rate for the last decade.

    C) the academic results? As an example, two years ago out of 320 Queensland schools Nudgee were ranked 13th highest for OP 1 - 5 for actual students receiving these scores (rather than the algorithm or manufactured percentages that schools concoct for marketing purposes), and top 20 on the list last year for producing actual students who fell into this range again, placing them just above TSS, IGS, TGS. Balance is everything and sport is crucial to this, particularly in sports that build character. So, 13/320.top 0.04 which is superb. When you break down the actual real numbers of students that achieve these results, it’s close to the top of the list. Did you fall ito this range yourself?

    See my post below. I wouldn’t trade anything for the Nudgee experience.

    Luke old mate I think Nudgee is a great school . I'm envious . I really am. But I'm calling you on the Tennis. 30 years ? Give me a very large break . Anyone that knows ..knows that Nudgee Tennis has been arse ever since BBC current Director of Tennis left Nudgee and came to BBC . Nudgee, I don't believe have sniffed the Top 3 this decade ( maybe an outlier year here or there )

    No one will quibble with your consistently impressive Rugby , Rowing and Swimming results however , and yes , there are many things done well

    Anyway back to the Rugby, and despite my view he wasn’t at same level as last year but I’m glad to say Reesjan is right back into great form based on last weekends game.

    There’s no doubt BBC is one of the premier tennis schools, along with Grammar and Churchie, but Nudgee have won the title 8 times during that period and BBC 9 times, 8 times being quite credible (since 88). I understand from mates close to Nudgee that they have been consistently within reach of the top tennis schools such as BBC, Grammar, Terrace and I think IGS one year, and in the top half of the comp most of that period. I can’t back that statement up re top 4 finishes, apart from the actual titles where the info is publically easily available and you might have a point, so I’ll give myself a foot fault and concede the point.

    Back to the rugby. I can’t wait for the TSS v BBC matchup this weekend and I’m tipping a boil over, particularly after TSS are coming in off an easy run and BBC back on Miskin after a good hit out with Ippy. BBC for the premiership!

    All of Nudgee will be cheering for BBC this weekend. Nudgee have a rest then a warm up v BGS and then battle BBC on Ross oval. Could well be a 3 team premiership.

    NC have won the tennis 1st IV 7 times - 5 between 1988 - 1994 and 2 in the 1930's.

    Who cares about the tennis - It’s a one way street. Pretty boring. On the opposite end of the spectrum, what a race to the finish line the 2019 Rugby season has set up to be.

    The battle for the wooden spoon is intensifying, I’m tipping Terrace to claim honours. TSS and Ippy await them - yikes!
    And yes, what a spectacle this weekend will be at Miskin Street. IS THIS THE YEAR?!

    Old Boys’ Day and the word is spreading that a win this weekend will put one hand on the trophy. Numbers will be large, good luck finding a park.

    Final team listings will be interesting with some great match-ups potentially.

    Fuck me, as a College old boy who was always reminded of our 'tied rugby premiership' that'd be heartbreaking.

    It would be amazing if it is, none least because I believe their Firsts are the focus of Onion TV's "The Season" at the moment.

    Just watched the BBC and IGS game replay. Seriously there were plenty of BBC mistakes that Nudgee and TSS will capitalise on before your players will know what hit them. In true BBC coaching style, player positions were not at strength IMO.Remember your coach was previously at Nudgee. We know how it works. Any reason why Jack Kelly and Mason Gordon didn’t start? Is Bowyer still injured? Was very quiet in the game. George Gibson is a machine, but him alone will not break TSS this weekend. Good luck this weekend.

    At BBC. The players are there, the culture is there, the coaching is there, and clearly the hunger is there too.

    As usual though, that also applies (in spades) to TSS and NC.

    TSS look like a team with no weaknesses at all, but those Southport players will have done the math and know in a small corner in the back of their minds that they can drop a game and still win or share the 1st XV title providing Nudgee can do the job at home.

    Perhaps a sliver of an advantage mentally,

    TSS may also be getting tired. They don't get a real bye this year (round 9).

    Player vs player (and I don't really like to mention names), its not a uneven match-up on paper.

    The occasion and pressure might get to the BBC team this weekend.

    They have to be in the right mental place, forget about everything else, and just focus on the game in front of them. Leave it all out on the field at Miskin this Saturday. Win, lose or draw.

    I will say this for this BBC Team - which is quite a bit different to BBC Teams of years past

    A number of these boys that have been here for some time have won Club Premierships ( Rugby and League ) , undefeated and/or Top of the Table School Seasons and been part of undefeated State Championship winning teams and dominant QLD Teams coming through their on their journey

    This core I refer to are used to winning and more importantly have made significant contributions to what and where they have won - and they expect to win in their mentality. They aren't phased by the pressure.

    If they don't win I guarantee it won't be because of the foreign feeling of not knowing how.
