    Our fullback tried to run it out of our in goal and with smacked with a massive swinging arm(which fractured his jaw, we didn't know it at the time) and was told by the ref, 'this isn't rugby league, don't drop and throw your arms to the side when you get hit'.

    I know I've carrying the can as far div 6 chat has gone all year. But in case anyone cares, we were dominating, winning the physical battles, dominating the scrum(as we have all year) were up 26-3 and switched off.

    They can put the points and we thought we'd done enough and din't fight hard enough for it.

    A few of their players even said afterwards that they didn't feel like celebrating, they felt like we'd dished out the pain on them.

    Great recap of the day!!!

    In the first grade fixture, I think you are correct in saying the prop was lucky not to get a red. Very late and there was intent. You swing a closed fist into someone's face that is in a stationary position. That can't be called an accident. Pretty clear view of this one. He went on to score a crucial try and did play a big part in their attack for the rest of the game.

    Hunters came out in the second half with higher tempo game and everything seemed to stick.

    The line-outs costs Mountains badly. The starting hooker went off early and the reserve hooker was said to be concussed but stayed on. Don't know how? That would explain why they didn't win any of their own line outs during the second stanza. That field position gave Hunters plenty of opportunity in the attacking zone and they capitalised.

    Good game to watch. Both teams threw the ball around well.

    Lindfield are appealing tonight? Obviously can't get it all thrown out but at least the bond payment might be a start

    Today's Manly Daily has an article that suggests Waverley played multiple 1st graders in its 2nd grade GF win over Forest on Saturday. Sour grapes or fact?

    They accused hills of the same thing the week before in 2s (even though they smashed us!), and in 4s the week before that. Par for the course with these guys now.

    I don't know if they were 1st grade, but on the day their #12 and #24 (second row) seemed to be their best players, and weren't in the major semi.

    No teamsheets online so it's hard to compare.

    The 13 for Waverley in seconds was Scott Sarson who is nominated for the Barraclough Medal this year. Very good footballer Don't think he played many first grade games in the back half of the year though in firsts.

    Their 12 was a standout in that game. He broke the line numerous times. Very strong. He took off his long compression pants at halftime. That is illegal still in Subbies rugby isn't it?

    The number 24 in the GF for Waverley did play in the Major Semi, Tony Oreglia.

    Scott Sarson missed 8 rounds through injury, and when he came back from injury towards the end of the year he played second grade. He also played in the major semi.

    The number 12 hardly played all year, and he was actually in 3rd grade mostly when he did play. He didn't play at all in first grade this year. He checked his compression pants with the match officials and was told they were fine to wear. Forest made an issue of it during the first half, and Tim Richards got him to take them off.

    I'm afraid it is sour grapes from Forest and I think it reflects poorly on them that something like that would be published.

    In that case yes it does look like sour grapes.

    Amazes me how Scott Sarson (good for him) can be nominated or voted as a contender to the Barraclough medal after missing more than half the season through injury then played 2nd grade on his return. Interesting to note, how the same voters not nominate/choose a player from the minor premiers and Barraclough Champions Hunters Hill who lost just one close game all season, ponder that one!

    12 of the 15 who started the major semi for Waverley started the GF, so I'm not sure why Forest have claimed multiple first graders were playing.

    It goes on the Medal points awarded by the Ref at the end of each 1st Grade game. So Maybe HH had a larger spread of players receiving points?

    Did they have open selection? They got every team into the finals so probably had a fair bit of wiggle room there.

    I remember a year in the Shute Shield were Hamish Angus won the Best & Fairest when Warringah were in the bottom 4 - was because he consistently polled points where the stronger teams had different players polling points.

    Shows in a few divisions this year.
