Well its nearly November so let's kick off another thread. Discussion at Presentation Night was around competition structure. And it needs to be as all Divisions had their own Black Sheep. Similar to 2018, there was one round where 10% of scheduled matches were forfeits and that isn't good for the game. Top three divisions are probably going to end up similar to this with Balmain sliding hard: Div 1 1 Mosman 2 Drummoyne 3 Colleagues 4 Waverley 5 Blue Mountains 6 Petersham 7 Knox OB 8 Forest Div 2 1 Hunters Hill 2 St Patricks 3 Lindfield 4 Hills 5 UNSW 6 BOBs 7 Epping 8 Newport Div 3 1 Redfield OB 2 Blacktown 3 Old Iggues 4 Beecroft 5 HAC 6 Hawkesbury Valley 7 Sydney Harlequins 8 Canterbury Division 4 then becomes a "Thirds Optional" competition, because once again Halligan Cup showed serious numbers for some clubs and they could be good for a 12:55PM game Div 4 1 Balmain 2 Brothers 3 Briars 4 Sydney Irish 5 Mac Uni 6 Oatley 7 Saints 8 Raptors - promoted mainly on their numbers which were good the last 10 rounds. They've got personnel to burn, and their success will only improve that. Division 5 should be for those with aspiration for a second team - certainly the Renegades fit this description - and regardless of the strength of the competition these 2nd Grades need somewhere to play: Div 5 1 Burraneer - can put out a Colts team so push that angle 2 North Cronulla 3 Dukes 4 Convicts 5 Lane Cove 6 Kings OB - 2 x regular Halligan = 1 x Division 5 club 7 Renegades - always trying, regularly failing 8 Wakehurst Of the remaining clubs, you could easily move Chatswood up in place of Wakehurst, but the rest seem to have found a fairly solid place at one team and due to various factors can't yet move. Div 6 1 Engadine 2 Maccabi 3 Merrylands 4 Savers 5 Chatswood 6 Menai 7 Dee Why / Terrey Hills - but after some questions over this merger, might be finished? 8 Colleagues 6ths - they can find some capable guys to play at 3PM I'm sure You would have to think that an injection from some of the larger clubs with excess numbers would help a lot of these clubs - particularly for the lower north shore and beaches teams.
