    QLD Premier Rugby 2021

    My mail today is that "no community sports" means no team training in any reconfigured format. Interestingly, there has been no clarification on this from Queensland Health to date that I am aware of because I suspect no-one wants to ask the question.

    ".....stripping of points"? What was the crime?

    QLD Premier Rugby 2021

    While it would be great to extend the season etc, there are just too many unknowns to make plans etc. Then there are the many player issues highlighted in the forum here. There is no way our Dr Young will permit any form of club / school sport until there is a zero/donut case day again. Add...

    QLD Premier Rugby 2021

    My mail is that the "issues" at Sunnybank run a lot deeper than the recruitment and retention of players. The cultural, management, financial and behavioural issues that are behind the demise have been happening for some time now. It is very sad for the local competition and those many great...

    QLD Colts 2021

    Love it! I think a root cause / issue is the school to Colts/U20 transition as pointed out by the followers. 20 years olds should not be playing Colts 4! I believe there is a strong case and precedent (in the ACT) for an Under 18's comp as recommended. I love the FOALS concept and...

    QLD Colts 2021

    The dropout rate from school rugby to Colts is alarming. I also am led to believe that the dropout rate from 1st XV to Colts is worse! The dropout rate in Colts into grades should be of major concern to clubs and game administrators. The fiasco that was/is the Colts 3 "competition" this year...

    QLD Colts 2021

    Excellent game analysis. That last sentence is spot on. The Colts situation at UQ this year has been very disappointing on a number of fronts. We can only hope some maturity and governance evolves for next year.

    QLD Colts 2021

    Can someone explain to me how clubs are able to parachute schoolboys players into their teams for cameo appearances at this time of year? What about player registration? It seems very poor form and competition management to me. I can't see how other Easts Colts players (particularly those in...

    Any updates on what has transpired since the Brothers v GPS Womens fiasco. What happened and the resulting national media coverage of it has done irreparable damage to our game. It was a sad day on many fronts.

    Sadly, I believe that the once mighty sub-districts competition in Brisbane is not so mighty any more. Credit to Redlands getting a very competitive Colts team together this year. I think it is important that the lower Colts team remain in the Brisbane area and playing on their club days...

    QLD Colts 2021

    The dysfunction got more dysfunctional last week in Colts 4 with a ridiculous 86 point win in Uni vs Brothers B and Brothers 4A with a 32 - 7 win over Redlands who were competition leaders. Clearly, some side stacking with Colts 3 players going on. Is there a QRU competition manager looking at...

    QLD Premier Rugby 2021

    Yes - it was a great club rugby day all round spoilt by these mindless idiots. Totally unacceptable, dangerous and a blight on the club supporters. I trust the GPS Management take this incident very seriously and the perpetrator/s are dealt with accordingly and that this sort of rubbish NEVER...

    QLD Colts 2021

    The dysfunction in the Colts 3/4/5 competition continues I hear. As noted previously, Colts 3 competition involves only 2 teams playing each weekend, leaving the remaining 3 teams on BYES which is resulting in many Colts 3 players playing Colts 4/5 to get a game of footy/win games for their...

    QLD Colts 2021

    Seeing/hearing that the lower Colts grade competition is somewhat "dysfunctional" at this point. Colts 3 competition has only 5 teams with only 2 those of those teams playing this weekend and last weekend. Other teams on BYE due to other clubs not having a Colts 3 team. As a consequence, games...
