    @dave beat; and that centre didn't mind playing 4s, even tho he was captain of his national side back home?? That shows he was/is a great bloke.
    We've had guys who played that level think they should walk into 1sts, then blow up when selected in 3s!! Lol.
    Manly lower grades are always tough. Good club there mate.

    I am beginning to believe that the SS could become the centrepiece of a national club competition.


    If Channel 7 decide to go with it next season my belief will grow stronger.


    There would be winners and losers out of this, but, overall it could be fantastic for the bottom up development of the code.

    I need help with some positions, and some are a tie.


    1. Jed Gillespie (Woodies)
    2. Hugh Roach (Woodies) / David Porecki (MMM)
    3.
    4. Ed Gower (MMM) most posters said he carried Manly on his own
    5.
    6. Kieran Black (Hobbits)
    7. Kotoni Ale (MMM) - form 7 until injury
    8. Jed Holloway (Hobbits) / Pat Sio (Woods) - Woods lost thrust when Pat left
    9. Matt Lucas (MMM) most people said Manly were only because of Matt.
    10.
    11. Afa Pakalani (Hobbits)
    12. Reece Hodge (MMM)
    13. Dennis Pillue Gitu (MMM)
    14. Alex Northam (MMM)
    15. BJ (MMM) / Feltscheers (Rats)

    I reckon the GF could have been even better again if Porecki / Kotoni / Sio were running around. They were through out the year consistently best players in a strong team.

    We need more of this sort of thinking - that would be awesome.
    What is wrong with putting something like that out there, and building on it.

    Yes there would be losers, I.e. -
    I like getting to the oval to hopefully watch 4 grades - that would be hard.
    It is the lower grades that are often the heart and sole of clubs - and make clubs tick because of BBQ, Support etc.
    No doubt more points like this, little / no cost, and on the scale of things so valuable.

    I reckon it'd be great, but there would be importance about retaining the foundations of club rugby - politically there wold be hurdles along the way.

    I have heard that chanel 7 want more content than just a game on saturday afternoon and are now saying they want a 1st colts game to be played and televised before the 1st grade match so that they get roughly a 4 hour package.

    I hope that's true. That would be incredible and whilst I'm not interested in u20s playing that would create an enormous amount of interest in the comp by the clubs and players and improve development and pathways. That could stop the drain to league after school too.

    Massive.

    Would make more sense to play 2 first grade games at the one venue?

    The snouts are saying that Channel 7 were very happy with the ratings on 7TWO and are considering moving all games to the main channel for live broadcast in NSW for 2016.

    The 10 clubs who were on tv this year would be delighted with that.

    Excellent news if true Knuckles. I was hoping with all the in-game promotion of the NRC that they would be showing that as well. Hopefully they will do so next year.

    Yeh my brother works for channel 7 & repeats the sentiment about the ratings.

    He hadn't heard about the two games on the main channel when I spoke to him last night tho. But agrees it's great for the sport and that 7 are taking the club rugby a lot more serious than ABC did.

    I must confess there was no mention of two matches. But there was mention of moving it to the main 7 station. Also, the GF won it's timeslot so there's another reason Channel 7 are happy.

    Now if we can just get Mr Stokes to commit millions.......

    ^^^ Article in Fin Review yesterday says that Club Rugby TV had to stump up with ~$750k to pay Ch 7 get on FTA TV. Even with good ratings, it may take some time before the tables are turned and Ch 7 start paying Club Rugby TV (or others) for the coverage.

    I thought Colts 3 was U/19's and the "4th" level was U/18's.
    Curious how this fits with the award descriptions above?
    Tks

    Colts 3's use Under 19 Law Variations but they can be 19 turning 20 and still play in Colts 3's.

    I suspect the reference to U19's is either a typo by me or the Highlanders on their web site. There was a "Colts 4ths" sort of Under 18 competition this year that was run under SJRU auspices but played before Colts 3's on Saturdays. Not all clubs participated in the inaugural year of this competition, and some clubs only played a couple of games depending on the numbers in Team Rehab in the other 3 Colts teams.
