    Disinformation. They were trying to confuse you or your source Oldest trick in the book. He ran on in 15.

    Sydney Subbies 2022

    Think you would have to take geography into account for the Div 5 carve-up. Brothers and Wakehurst in a southern-Sydney dominated group doesn't work. Oatley is in the northern-Sydney based group. So, agree with the general idea however the closer the games are geographically the easier the clubs...

    Sydney Subbies 2022

    Colts boys are very keen and the short season was a very big attraction as quite a few are cashed up and busting to travel after COVID-imposed lockdown. Reckon the tail end of the Radford Cup season will be difficult as teams (including ours) have the young 'uns shed their footy boots for...

    Sydney Subbies 2022

    Yep, first round matches emailed after lunch. Said they'll finalise the draw when they confirm the # of teams. We all roll with the punches but hard to keep U21 interested when you can't tell them what is expected of them. Think they're just all happy to play (if we can get a ground that the...

    Sydney Subbies 2022

    Not wanting to add to the Subbies HQ pile-on however...Radford Cup starts on Saturday and it is THURSDAY. There is still no draw out so nobody knows who, where or when we are playing. See yesterday's post for my thoughts on the knock-on impact for clubs.

    Not wanting to add to the Subbies HQ pile-on however...Radford Cup starts on Saturday and it is Wednesday. There is still no draw out so nobody knows who, where or when we are playing. Given the U21s have more work-related deconfliction and transport issues to sort out than most other people it...

    Part of the problem with Barker though is they tend to get stronger in the 16s and Opens (I presume as more boys come into the later years, some coincidentally with good rugby pedigrees). Last Saturday Barker for instance only put out three U-13 teams (Waverley had six teams with reserves for...

    NSW CAS Rugby 2020

    Completely unsubstantiated rumour but I heard someone say that one reason for Aloys peculiar weakness this year is that some players in the Athletics squad have decided to make that their priority over rugby, hence diluting the team. Anybody heard similar or is this just a bit of scurrilous...

    The bigger team won. Just ? Damning with faint praise there methinks. Another view could be 'Team that put 90 + on a team the week before fails to beat another team reduced to 14 players for a quarter of the game.' Anyway sound like a great game given the closeness of the scores regardless.

    CAS 2019

    To be fair, a pretty average game. Trinity had 2 YC, Waverley 1 and all in the first half so Trinity weren't chasing in the second half b/c of them. Injuries were a factor though. The Waverley YC was also part of a penalty try (very fair call), while the 2 Trinity YC were for not releasing...

    NSW AAGPS 2019

    Yes, 36-36. Waverley were behind 29-22, then came back to lead 36-29 and View scored on the bell. I know Waverley had some injuries/rested players and assume View took the opportunity to try some new combinations as well. Both sides gave it their all but the play wasn't smooth probably as a...

    CAS 2019

    I would actually say that weights and fitness is a bigger problem for cricket at Waverley than b'ball is (in the opens at least - agree that b'ball sucks out cricketers in the junior years). The number of talented cricketers who think preparing for the rugby season is preferable to bettering...

    NSW AAGPS 2018

    Aren't those two uniformed members of the constabulary to the right rear of the crowd ? Surely if there were assaults and kicking of prone players they would have picked it up, or at least concerned parents/school personnel would have reported it to them. As they say, the absence of evidence...

    CAS 2018

    Time for an anti-soccer rant. This year Waverley allowed the firsts soccer to play on QP1. I can probably accept that they need their day in the sun as well so they should be allowed on the hallowed turf. What I find difficult to accept is the fact that one soccer game requires two rugby games...
