    I believe he will be a bulldog as he is close with the Gordon boys, but I believe there are some other brothers folk heading 'round the corner' though.

    GPS as per program for coaching staff at this stage. It'll be interesting to see if Mowen will still be at Easts in a years time with all of these promises of development...what's the market for him being in the Brumbies set up (not as Head Coach just yet) though when McKellar moves on at the...

    I also know Kelevi quite well from his playing days at GPS before he migrated to the filth. He isn't the type of guy who comes and goes, he invests well wherever he is. I look at how Brothers moved him around from 1st grade, back to colts, back to whatever his role would have been for next year...

    I'd love to know the real story at Wests as well, I do believe the Rebels infux caused issues with existing players. I'd also like to know who at Wests thought it would be a good idea to bring Elwee in? Don't get me wrong, his on field coaching and ability to recruit is a high level, but the...

    Consistency with maintaining your existing group is really important - we were quite fortunate with that this year and our larger number of 20 year olds, despite the previous merry-go-round of coaching staff, in saying that we also attracted some boys back from other programs through the new...

    I believe there is a 3 way series of games between two QLD u19 teams and a QLD country team that will see each team play 2 games, a couple of GPS lads have been selected, I'm not sure of the teams though. I imagine this is to help with future Aus 20s squad selections, should the tournament get...

    Sunnybank have just announced Brendan Underwood as their Colts 1 Head Coach. Undies is a great bloke and a passionate club man who was a great 9 for Sunnybank in the early 2000s. I'm not sure how he goes recruiting, but I do wish him well. Easts Colts coach is also the rugby manager at Easts...

    Really proud of our boys yesterday, I'll admit I was a bit worried leading in that perhaps they'd played their grand final v Brothers given how well they played, but they showed a lot of poise to come away with that win. I'm looking forward to seeing these boys graduate in grade next year. Both...

    One of the most dominant locks in Colts: Tane Riori One of the most influential 10s in Colts & Rebels contracted: Mason Gordon One of the most influential backs in colts & Rebels contracted: David Vaihu A 10/15 who played 1st grade in Wellington as an 18 year old: Jake Sargood At Colts level...

    LOL! I have to say as an outsider looking in at our west side clubs, I have had many questions around the environments/levels of coaching. I couldn't see Mick Heenan or Carl Marshall being overly happy with their potentially future 1st grade players development this year? The colts...

    Respectfully (and very biased) GPS backrow was pretty rock solid on saturday against Wests, who's big bodies seem to struggle in the big games. Make no mistake Wests have some really good players, which like UQ, begs the question how are they not in the top 4 given the cattle? I think there...

    It is a bit of a double edged, quality players are offered to you, if you miss out someone else will grab them. I understand the Rebels haven't been paying for these players to fly back, it is all at the clubs expense. We had DHP for a game, who I might add was terrific around the club, albeit...

    Very well said Whisperer! I am still crying about Saturday's penalty try on fulltime, an absolute heart breaker! Torko and Sio have done a great job, the boys whose 3rd year it is have had some proper adversity, having gone through a few coaches before this year, but they've stuck around and...

    I like whisperer's teams earlier and DM's u19 team, minus the Baker omission, he's an u18 year old standout. I'm not sure Waia has played for brothers this year, after being a standout for them last year? It's hard slog picking u19 teams from an u20 comp, but I see how it flows into u20...

    A heartbreaker yesterday with Easts v GPS. well done to Easts for getting over the line, but they really did get out of jail. A penalty kick for touch going dead and being awarded as a lineout which allowed Easts to score after the bell to win, and credit to them for being good enough to do so...
