What's the best ground to get out to this weekend?
I'd love to get to Wills to see Canterbury try for the clean sweep.
Value for money is probably Concord though - Div 2 GFs, 7 clubs playing from 9AM
3 beers for $10 at wills too.
Division 5 has been moved to Forshaw Rugby Park. Guessing that would be fairly close to you.
No word on whether DJ Smuggler will be spinning discs.
Subbies still has David Phillips listed for Div 5. Any reason for the move?
Who's DJ smuggler?
Don't know if I can stomach watching them win another comp.
I'm asking in terms of what's gonna be a great match. Never really seen any other divisions.
I'd duck down and watch Wollongong if they didn't fist me for $8 a beer.
Might have something to do with the fact that David Phillips No. 1 was a goat track when the Div 2 semis were played there 2 weeks ago. Despite the newness of the UNSW facilities the playing surface was in a disgraceful state.
The poor condition of the pitch was made all the more enjoyable by the cyclonic winds & the subsequent waves of dust & sand they whipped up for 80mins! Interesting to note that UNSW No. 2 was fine having been oversown with rye grass but No.1 was bloody ordinary!
Alas whilst we HAC blokes might be mere humble country folk compared to our hoity - toity book learning brethen from Daceyville at least we can grow grass!
You're bloody farmers. If you couldn't grow grass you'd get fired
..and we have a better fence!
Agreed! Quality fencing at HAC. I wont weigh in on your grass growing abilities, thats better left to grasslover
As an old breakers boy I might be a bit biased, but feeling a 2nds and 3rds premiership is inevitable tomorrow with our late charge to the finals injury-free.
Epping and Iggies for 1s and colts.

DIV 2 Grand Finals
1st Grade - Barraclough Cup
Hunters Hill v UWSH- Well the 2 best teams in the competition all year are rightfully playing off for the chance at premiership glory. Hunters Hill a clinical, structured side that wears down their opposition and UWSH that are a big, physical, fast and innovative team who will look to keep the ball alive. It has the makings to be a cracker! Last 2 outings UWSH have belted Hunters but I feel it will be a much closer affair tomorrow. UWSH to win this one with a kick in the last few minutes I think
2nd Grade- Stockdale Cup
Beecroft v Lindfield- Again should be a cracker, Beecroft looked extremely dominate in the major semi same with Lindfield. But Lindfield needed to work extremely hard this week and one feels that they may have played their Grand Final last week after having to kick a penalty goal after the bell to win it. Beecroft in a tight one
Colts - Robertson Cup
Lindfield v UNSW- This will be an interesting game, UNSW showed last week that they can match with Lindfield when they physically outmuscled and outclassed Forest. Lindfield have been the benchmark all year and haven't lost a game will this have an effect on the outcome tomorrow? I don't think so think they should run away with it late in the game Lindfield by 12
3rd Grade - Blunt Cup
Hunters Hill v Hills- What a clash of style here. Hunters Hill the young fit fast team taking on the massive pack of Hills. I feel if the ball gets wide look out for Hills but if they keep it tight and play direct they can make some inroads as they did in the major semi. this will be close but i feel the boys from Boronia will get home late
4th Grade - Richardson Cup
Forest v Hills- Another 1 v 2 Clash and the old rivalry between these 2 teams continues. They have played each other 2 years ago in the same fixture. Semi final Forest played the conditions perfectly with their kicking game with the wing and their bug experienced forwards. Hills in the preliminary finals were electric scoring some cracking tries. This again should live up to a grand final standard and I feel Hills with conditions suiting running rugby will scrape home here and win their 3 Grand Final in a row
2s have been hot all year.
3s have a tonne of blokes back from injury and riding a wave of momentum.

3rd Division Tips.
1s - Epping

I Would Be Happy To Be Proven Wrong Though!!
Think your boys are a big chance in Colts.
Pretty damn good. Scored a try on the last play to win the Grand Final.
