    ''Twas the night before game day, and all thro' subbies people were wondering.what drama will transpire tomorrow. Will there be forfeits or even a brawl. Many little birds sing great songs but we wait to find out which will come true.

    Had to take up a different hobby after my rugby career never took off.

    Div 5 Rd 10 predictions -

    2 games this week after the Dukes already played against Maccabi a few weeks back (a vast majority of the Maccabi side are playing in Israel for the Maccabiah games), and Lane Cove have forfeited a home game to Menai (unconfirmed why but I would suggest it would be to do with their injury list).

    So that leaves Collaroy vs Convicts and Wakehurst vs Chatswood.

    Collaroy by 30.
    Wakehurst by 10.

    Fence & Hedge not good enough then aye? Trouble in paradise for the boys from Lane Cove? Sounds like they need some new recruits

    Don't you hate it when your comments come back to bite you?

    I dunno - Collaroy are on a run of outs except the thrashing of Chatswood last week (no big talking point). Convicts have won the last few and might just have a bit of momentum - I reckon they'll leapfrog into third with a tight win. They've got a tough run home though!

    Wife's gone out, footy is over..having a look at some early team lists that are out for tomorrow and some big inclusions and also looks like some rumours about forfeits and unhappy players are true.

    TBH I'm actually less stressed today, because one game is a fuckload easier to organise in terms of players and time spent on game day.

    I could get used to this.

    Highlights from today.

    div 1

    Colleagues coming from behind with two converted tries to beat Knox and establish themselves with a buffer in the top 4.

    Div 2

    UNSW beating Hills and out of nowhere now move into the 4. Plenty of opportunity with four rounds to go with Unsw, Forest, Hills and Lindfield all capable of a friend finals appearance.

    Div 3

    BOBS and Iggies had decisive wins and Epping (despite the noise) got over a gallant Saints. The top 3 looking solid with four reamining teams vying for 4th spot. Interesting seeing Newport get up 50-0 and 88-0 in lower grades with Brothers winning 1s. Apparently 11 Brothers colts had to back up in 2s. That's not sustainable.

    I was reminded that Waverley Oval definitely is the best ground in subbies land.

    Div 1 Colleagues win and celebrations were as big as you have seen in subbies rugby.

    Div 2 Mountain men getting it done over Hunters Hill. HH missing some players but hearing they still should've got the win.

    Div 3 Epping good enough with 8 first graders out. A very disappointing St Ives day with 1st graders playing lower grades AND the game stopping for 5min as St Ives didn't have any footballs RIDICULOUS!

    Very ordinary display from the Shammies today. Full marks to Waverley they identified a weakness and exploited it effectively to lead 19-15 at halftime. It wasn't until about the 60 min mark that Petersham started to get ahead. Shammies scrum has never been great all season but got monstered by Waverley. We have a prop away this week but still it was not good. The Shammies can turn on some champagne rugby at times though!

    8 first graders out?

    Does this have anything to do with the coaching issues?

    Of course, it's no help when two guys call in sick, three more drop "stuck at work" less than two hours from kick off, and then another two simply don't show up.

    Started with 14, then one of my best players nearly had his fucking head taken off by a swinging arm ten minutes in and had to retire with concussion. THEN the Vice President popped his groin just before the half.

    33-nil at halftime was pretty respectable, considering we were down to 12.

    92-nil at the end wasn't bad under the circumstances.

    What was the gentleman's agreement regarding first graders playing down? I noticed a few names in that second grade team for Oatley.

    I'm unsure what the go is there surely Booba couldn't be too bad if they still managed to get a win. Maybe he could work on their 2s side who cant buy a win this year.
