Discussion in 'Subbies Rugby' started by boyo, Nov 6, 2014.
To start the ball rolling..
Should be a good year for UWS / Hawkesbury Ag College in Div 3 as they build towards their 125th Anniversary in 2016. Big years like that always brings old & new players out of the woodwork.
Go the blood & mustard - Wazzie - Wazzie - Yah!
Rumoured strong recruiting as well.
Great shame that Hornsby have left. It will be interesting to see how they go in the Central Coast comp. Likewise Harlequins in the Illawarra comp
Anyone close to the goings on at St Ives Rugby? Word is that AGM resulted in the removal of current President and entire Committee. Anyone got any intel?
Their facebook page seems to have a lot of info on it. Plenty of plans, but no info on the committee changes
Lets hope they pull it off as Subbies needs a strong St Ives.
It would be safe to say that that Rugby is disappearing from the Australian landscape at an accelerating pace. It is declining when measured against every metric you can think of.
Read and weep.
Crashy it certainly makes for depressing reading. The Dashboard on page 8 could not read worse. Player numbers down, club numbers down, crowd numbers down. What is the ARUs response to this? Make it more expensive to insure players and introduce a new $33 per player rego fee. How much is that joke Pulver on again?
The problem is no-matter where you look in NSW its the same story – schools, junior clubs etc
No funding from ARU / NSWRU
Less media coverage
I wonder how much $ from this alleged bigger TV deal we flow down to the grassroots
Fuck me this game is dying
Thats alright Pulver and the rest of the clowns at Fort Fumble are still earning a good quid.
From the chairman's bit
If the Board didn't see that coming, they're not fucking paying attention.
Its a commical comment really. Campbelltown were nothing but transparent and the board ignored the warnings. Relegation threats might have worked in the past but with many clubs main concern now pure survival I dont think they care what Div they are in as long as they are still around.
Worse than that: its a fucking kneel-down-and-smoke the Eastern Suburbs clubs.
Good luck replacing them long-term. The Five-grade system is broken.
They originally came from the Illawarra comp and they'll do well back there with 3 grades plus colts being their only requirements.
What is seriously going on at the ARU? Someone tell the ARU & NSWRU that grassroots rugby is not Scots vs Riverview.
Yeah love your work Pappy:
Well Pappy, as a wise man (me) once said: Get Fucked.
You love to criticise everyone else but can't take any honest evaluation of your own club. You decided not to back the NRC because you saw risk. The ARU is just doing the same.
Without that top of the tree there is ZERO FUCKING MONEY mate, so get a few old boys on board and start thinking up initiatives like web streaming, or go play Subbies.
Sorry, been away but can someone enlighten me.
Div 2 is 9 teams, keeping St Ives.
Beecroft is nowhere to be found at all
Seven clubs in Div 3
What is going on?
grading is next year isnt it?
Yeah usually from memory. Though they'll settle the top Divs as soon as they can (promotion/relegation being a factor) but 4-6 won't be decided until late Feb or even early March.
After this year though, and teams leaving the comp altogether? Well that just isn't pretty.
Incorrect, Division 2 will be 8 teams. St Ives not definite to be in. Brothers up to Division 1 I believe. Oatley out????
Separate names with a comma.
