Shammies have recruited their top 3 teams from overseas this year.
Completely different from last years teams which were also recruited.
Good on them but it makes a mockery of Subbies 4 import rule.
Why even have that rule if you're not going to enforce it.
Chit chat among Division 1 Clubs is that every single one of them that I have spoken to will be happy to see the back of St Pats.
St Pats have disintegrated since the no-payment rule came in, although they did play (play not pay) L Windon who came across mid-Season from West Harbour last year...
Chit chat that Waverley is in disarray.
1st grade coach & former welsh prop left to play for Parra in Shute Shield. Took a number of his recruits with him.
Colts have lost all their players after 5 red cards handed out for fighting. The rest of the players left when their mates were kicked...
Do you know if J Barry is Jared Barry? I'm not so sure you can tell from FuseSport.
Eg. The legendary Mosman & Rep hooker Danny Farrell was thought retired until he turned up on St Pats Kentwell team sheet as #2. D Farrell. I've since discovered he is a different D Farrell.
Team A needs to have 2 more players than Team B in the rep team to postpone the match.
Balmain had 3, Colleagues had 4 = differential of 1. Therefor it was not possible for either team to postpone the game.
Not cool to take your own beer to any home ground mate. Canteens are the lifeblood of Subbies rugby & although it might cost you $2 more a beer than if you bought yourself at least its cold & you know you are supporting grass roots along the way
I am interested to know who are these other 4/5 Clubs that are paying players in Div 1 & 2.
Aside from clubs pointing the finger with very little evidence what else is there that these 'players & officials' provided that would shed light?
Prodigy, it appears that Colleagues hadn't uploaded their correct team sheets when you looked a few days ago.
They now include 2015 USA International Toby L'Estrange & 2014 NRC rep & 2015 Sydney Uni player James McMahon.
I really don't get all these HQ law changes if teams can still pull this...
