Discussion in 'National Rugby Championship (NRC)' started by RugbyReg, Jun 24, 2019.
Still eligible to play in the U19 NRC? Is it 19 and Under?
looks fairly promising, having a massive frame is always a pretty good starting point. We don't have a luxury of tall timber in Australia, surely someone like the Tahs would be willing to take a punt on him.
I have heard that some guys have been advised that they have made the City Squad and are going in for medical checks today. Have the Squads been released?
no. I guess they wait for medicals to be done.
I believe players for both squads have been notified and yes, medicals are being held today (apparently).
I'm guessing there'll be some sort of public announcement next week at the earliest (about squads)
JP Smith won’t play this years NRC, has a knee tidy up this week
Good to see so much chat about NRC in the media. Can’t get squad lists anywhere - the Roar says the squads are named https://www.theroar.com.au/rugby-union/national-rugby-championship/nrc-squads/
then list 2018 squads! Hard to believe they’ll get many bums on seats other than relatives of players?
I think they try to avoid overlapping any advertising and marketing with club rugby like QPR and Shute Shield as to not detract from their finals.
QLD players know who’s in the squads, but hasn’t been released to the media yet because the QPR GF is still to play this weekend.
So. everyone is going to Brothers V Uni? And the public can’t focus on two things at once? And announcing that Seib is moving on is not distraction? OMG I hope we don’t think about the Bled on Saturday night-God forbid!
Full squad training has begun
I wish the NRC used normal rules so we could get a better gauge of how players would take the next step.
Regardless very much looking forward to seeing the squad and enjoying the tournament.
Let's hope they actually announce the squads soon!
Hearing that Pat Morrey (UQ) has been picked by Melbourne Rising and Byron Ralston (Brothers) has been picked by the Western Force. So there is 2 who wont feature this year for QLD
yep Morrey was announced in the preliminary Rising squad a week or so ago.
Ralston flew out Monday to join the Force.
Unfortunately not enough money to go around to keep these up and coming players loyal to the Reds.
Personally I am happy these blokes are getting a run. Good for them, good for prems, good for rugby generally.
Big Mac they call him I hear signed by the Brumbies
