    Not too many club home ovals have the capacity host the Grand Final.

    If SRU are making a buck from it, good on them. Far too much in Rugby runs at a loss.

    I honestly think the crowds will be bigger at North Sydney Oval than Concord just purely because more of the rugby population lives closer to NSO.

    When was the last time Concord got near 11,000 for a game. And yes I know Norths were playing.

    If Gordon were playing I think a similar crowd would be probable at NSO.

    Unfortunately, I suspect it will be a long time before that happens again. Although I suppose the story of North's success over the past couple of years can always give us hope!

    Best GF day is if there is a good mix of Clubs across the Grades. 4 Games, 8 different opponents.

    The Corporation vs Randiwix in all 4 Grades would be as dull as dishwater for all but their supporters. Max crowd - about 2000.

    How about this sequence, played at NSO (with yours truly advising NS Council on how to run the BBQ and Beer Tents (the Burger Crew from Forshaw Park, and Mrs @BellyTwoBlues in the Canteen, Nomad Brewery and <choke> CUB providing brown fighting juice, with NSW Country Eagles NRC administered food and wine expo on the far side of the oval):

    G1 - Manly 32 def by Rats 45. (All in brawl - 2 YC MMM, 1 RC 2 YC to Rats, 21 all at Oranges)
    G2 - Hobbits 26 def Beasties 25 (in extra time)
    G3 - Buildcorp 6 def by Pirates 7
    G4 - M2B 35 def The Gay Gordon 33

    Crowd: 17295
    Happy Punters: 11250. Some miseryguts will never be satisfied.

    I think you only missed including the Shore pies just for this special occasion.

    EDIT.
    As i said above - I have supported him (Tummy Carter), as he played the game hard on the field, and left it on the field.

    Rugby is about getting on top of your opposition and taking the bacon home.

    Tom tracked me down, made contact, guys he was good for our game and will be missed.

    Shit we can all do dumb shit in the heat of a game.

    As can be seen - above is retracted, cheers Tom appreciate the time and the message.

    Tight season, congrats to Norths.

    Does anyone know if the Shute Shield clubs are audited?

    I can't speak for other clubs, butNorths definitely is. I imagine they would be though.
    How come?

    I was chatting with some mates and were wondering what are the guidelines if any on Shute Shield clubs and reporting?

    The various club constitutions will state the requirements for Auditing of their accounts.

    Most clubs are Incorporated entities, if not trading as a registered Company entity. None are privately owned to the best of my knowledge,

    The clubs would have to comply with NSW financial legislation and regulation regarding their financial records.

    It would depend on the nature of the club. Norths is not-for-profit company limited by guarantee - so it'll follow reporting requirements stipulated by the Corporations Act. An ABN search should help out.

    I've been panned on here from pillar to post for my posts and being too straight a shooter. I love the shute shield i love my Wicks. I think it's a bloody joke to have a crack at clubs for talking to players. If your culture and programs sre good enough, you'll keep the majority of your list.

    What caused this post @Oz Talent?

    Seems a little out of place given the last few pages of this thread.

    Perhaps he has come on to the 2016 thread by mistake?:confused:

    There was some discussion on the 2017 SS thread re this, but most posts thought that there was no issue.
