    Yep, Jim's son.

    Have to say that, in hindsight, the Jeeps (and Easts) Colts have made you look like a rugby savant DM. Just don't let it go to your head.... I thought that both of the 9's were fantastic - hard to split them - but Bas definitely won the battle of the 10's. The work rate of the Jeeps pack was...

    I can certainly see why 7's rugby would suit Floyd perfectly, his footwork is a good as anyone I've seen in recent years apart from Kalyn Ponga and he's far from a one trick pony, but it seem that once you go down that road it's difficult to come back to the 15 man game at Super Rugby level. Whatever...

    With Floyd Aubrey winning the Colts Player of the year, what are the thoughts about his future in the senior ranks? Floyd hasn't really put a foot wrong so far in his rugby career, at 18 he's still got plenty of time to develop further, but do people see him being a success at Super Rugby level...

    Great effort by Padua to win those lower age premierships, and it certainly does augur well for their First XV prospects over the next few years However, looking at the results of the Padua v MCA games in the 8A's, 9A's and 10 A's played at Padua no winning margin in those games was greater...

    Darcy Hammond, who might not be 18 yet, has the ability to develop into an Andrew Sheridan type LHP. He’s unusually tall but strong and aggressive and an awkward match up for most young THP’s. Hopefully the performance last week v Souths is a sign of a renaissance for the GPS Colts program...

    Has Jono Kent ever played 10 at any level? He played 15 at school, and can't remember him playing anywhere other than fullback or wing since he returned to Jeeps a few years ago.

    Yes, and yes, but not in a related manner. But please, I beg you, don't go down the 1980's rabbit hole involving MCA's possible admission to GPS in the 1980's, nothing good will come of it.....;) Perhaps more importantly, since the last of two votes back in the 80's there's never been any...

    When I saw the MCA team list for today I half expected Padua to win. I counted 5 guys who played First XV for MCA last year not playing today, and they would probably be the first 5 picked. Padua might have been in the same boat, either way I wouldn’t use today’s game as much of a guide for...

    I'm pretty sure that Downes started as prop for Jeeps in the Ressies GF in 2019, or at the very least came on as a reserve during that game. Even now Downes is only 19 and has only been playing in the front row for 3 years, plenty of time for him to develop into a good prosepct if he has the...

    George Gibson immediately springs to mind.

    I could be wrong, but my impression is that SLC has the largest senior cohort, with Iona's probably larger than MCAs? The fact that SLC is not involved in a single "A" final other than the First XV must be a bit of a concern for them.

    MCA v SPC would have been something like 43-12, Floyd Aubrey scored at least 3, maybe 4, tries.

    As a neutral that was either a penalty try or, at worst, a penalty right in front of the posts for clear obstruction. Terrible decision.
