    NSW AAGPS 2020

    Just watching NRL Sunday Night and they are creaming themselves over Joseph Suaalii. Well done Kings (et al) in promoting the NRL code while ringing the death knell for union. Hope you are proud of your premierships. (Hmmm riddle me this, where did Luke Keary and Bayley Simonson go to school -...

    NSW AAGPS 2019

    Here endeth the lesson. Fun fact - 8 boys from my son's Shore 1st 15 ended up playing 1st grade Shute Shield and 2 went onto Super. How many of the premiership winning New team of 2013 went onto play 1st grade (NRL doesn't count)? Check out the gentleman in my avatar - they stood up against a...

    School sporting scholarships/recruitment

    WOW! BTW Sir, your grammar could do with a bit of touching up. Cheers PS A mate of was on your council for many years and he was quite unapologetic about the real purpose of your all-rounder scholarships.

    School sporting scholarships/recruitment

    Anyone here who supports using poor kids to advance their enrollments and endowments needs to visit the room of mirrors, pull their pants down, bend over, and have good hard look at themselves. https://thespinoff.co.nz/society/08-12-2018/who-actually-benefits-from-school-rugby-player-poaching/

    School sporting scholarships/recruitment

    They missed their opportunity in 2013 when a certain school had a bunch of professional league players in an amateur schoolboys competition. And that school will be filth forever more. Anyone attending that school on an “all-rounders bursary/scholarship” is tainted with the same brush. Did any...

    School sporting scholarships/recruitment

    I doubt the heads of the AAGPS would ever have the moral gumption to do the same thing. https://www.nzherald.co.nz/rugby/news/article.cfm?c_id=80&objectid=12171645&ref=NZH_fb&fbclid=IwAR0I4B_FD5m_BmdTFOY0YF3B2gdfW2XuPIwYdN1VCJkPybMElBv4mUUkmQc

    Sydney Subbies 2019

    MP, it is my assumption that he is being paid - Lindfield is a pretty well-off club. (And I think their good behaviour bond of $10,000 may have been refunded by now). They have a strong list of sponsors http://lindfieldrugby.com/the-club/sponsors/ - and get good crowds for the ladies/back-to...

    Sydney Subbies 2019

    I would be happy if just a few Lindfield (and Roseville) juniors came back home.

    Sydney Subbies 2019

    Lindfield have appointed David Zwart as 1st grade coach for 2019 (big CV at subbies level and more recently asst coach at Gordon 1sts). May be able to grab a few Gordon (amateur) players that do not fit into Coleman's plans. Should be a force in the ones next year, which, given depth of club...

    NRC SYDNEY RAYS vs NSW COUNTRY EAGLES (RND 1)

    Unfortunately a cripple fight (I am one so can use the expression you plums).

    Where do you think I found the link you plum. Cognitive reasoning not your strong suit?

    NSW AAGPS 2019

    This is excellent - have no association with schools but great to watch. Food for thought? https://www.facebook.com/DoubleTakeSports.AU/videos/696083210757922/

    Shute Shield 2018

    You are a miserable old sod. Four different clubs won today with the prospect of two different clubs winning tomorrow. Majority of SU players came through colts (all except Wilkin and O'Regan) and yes, despite your continuous protestations, some from juniors.
