    Shrouded in more secrecy than the whereabouts of Richie McCaw's Cloak of Invisibility, things are apparently well underway for Waratah Shield 2015 version with a Gaggerlander posting that "Oakhill have a Waratah Shield game on Tuesday at 1pm against a school from Canberra".

    Nothing on the NSW Schools RU or NSW RU website and my trusted advisor, Mr Google Search-Engine, is likewise revealing nothing.

    While there was a bit of a departure from the traditional knockout format for the 2014 Waratah Shield competition, these posts from the 2014 Waratah Shield Thread probably remain relevant to kick off the 2015 wang.

    I noticed another poster backing St Edies as shield aspirants ...when and who are they playing?
    Has the St Pats v High match happened?
    Are Knox playing this year?.... All of it?
    Where are the other usual suspects
    Are they continuing with the pool format used last year?
    Beasts Gryllid are deafening

    It's a round robin of some description. Don't know how many pools or how many in each pool.

    Perhaps the lack of a draw or information suggests the value placed on the competition by the ARU. Is the shield not organized by a group of dedicated guys without much support?

    Hunter Valley Grammar School won the Hunter leg of the Waratah Cup yesterday and I think will now progress to play off with North Coast sides for a spot in Sydney.

    Farrer are hosting Stannies at Tamworth Wednesday 3/6/15 rd 2 of Waratah Shield. Big road trip for the boys from Bathurst. Stannies made it to the semi final last year and lost after the hooter against Oakhill in a game for the ages. With the majority of that team still intact from last season they will be keen for an impressive start to their campaigne this year.
