    Two good strength teams here, with some hard decisions who will be starting in a few positions. With the announcement of the Reds Development players to follow the competition. There are few players to keep an eye on; Josh Flook, Hudson Creighton, Will Roach, Fred Fewtrell and possibly Tom VDS.

    Some promising rugby played over the past week in Canberra.
    NSW teams both showed promise with some good individual performances. Will be interesting to see which boys make it to the next level of selection from the teams. NSW Country certainly were in the game for the playoff for third but missed Max Douglas ( rested shoulder ) and Brett Wellington ( two weeks suspension)up front. Wilson Dulieu #22 and Jack Walsh #10 combined well and defended hard, Donny Freeman#7 a man possessed at the breakdown, Lachlan Shelly#15 also a standout, all had strong games throughout the tournament.
    Sydney were outplayed early in the final and hit their straps just a little too late in the game to make a come back, Tane Edmond #10 and Ben Robson #7 both had a great tournament.

    I think it was a shame that the two teams from NSW and from QLD were on opposite sides of the draw. Possibly it was to avoid a repeat of the all QLD final last year. From watching the games, QLD Country would have defeated Sydney City easily and Brisbane City would have taken NSW country in their stride.

    I don’t feel as though this year’s tournament had the depth of talent that last year’s had. And I do not believe there are too many u19’s playing NRC as there were last year to make up for it going into World’s next year. Possibly some coming up from Aust Schools & u18’s may make up for it.

    Dark Shark I think we had a pretty special group last year as evidenced by their efforts in the u20 World Cup. Qld again had by far and away the dominate sides in the U19 comp, really it should have been a Qld v Qld final. It is interesting that the under age competitions (u19 and and u20) put Qld well ahead of NSW rather than what we have seen with the Schoolboy champs where Qld were traditionally up to a year younger and struggled to cope. I think the age group coming through this year is okay especially boosted by the U18 group that just beat the Kiwi's for the first time since 2012. BTW for those who haven't watched that match it was a cracker and really Australia should have won by much more than they did. Maybe the pathways that have been set up seem to be working much better than what most punters thought.

    QLD have bred many talented players over the years, and a few have slipped away because QRU missed the opportunity or didn’t have the money. The pathway has given more confidence to rugby players and families even though there were a few sceptics one year ago. There also seems to be more confidence with QRU being more proactive and spending money at grassroots level. Don’t get me wrong, I would like to see more talent scouting in regional areas, but this requires more resources which requires a shit load more money.

    It just cant be overstated how much of an advantage playing a full year up is at that age. Ludicrous really.

    Any ideas what the process is for the boys now? Squad size, announcements. World cup in Italy next year is about all is online.
    Any predictions on the 2020 team?

    I would start with a list of all contracted players from each state. Gilmore has ambitions of advancing up the coaching chain so can’t see him going against those already annotated by super franchises or Sevens rugby
