    Qld Premier Rugby 2022

    As has been said on this forum previously, I don't get how the Magpies can be doing so well in reggies and other grades and Prems just suck.

    Qld Premier Rugby 2022

    Parking at Sylvan Road is a nightmare on any playing day let alone a finals. GPS not much better. Trust the clubs will have a "plan" to appease the locals, the police, players and spectators alike!! Prelims @ Bond Uni - seriously?

    Qld Premier Rugby 2022

    It's not a simple and easy process according to my microbiol and medical mates. TBH - any club that agrees to play there with this an issue are taking a huge player health risk. All sorts of legal ramifications I suspect. In the olde days, it would be off the Ballymore. What's the option...

    Qld GPS Rugby 2022

    The "divided" competition was an agenda item on the GPS Headmasters forum a few years back when the "arms race" of GPS had Nudgee, TSS and BCC in the race at full throttle . It would be a tragedy if Qld went down the path of Sydney GPS rugby.

    Qld GPS Rugby 2022

    You have to wonder if this sort of "designed dominance" is going to be the undoing of the rugby program in time. Nudgee certainly don't figure as strongly academically.

    Qld Premier Rugby 2022

    I am struggling a bit to understand why Souths Prems are "strugglers" and yet the Magpies are at the top of the table in Reggies and Third grade. Seems like there is a problem with "self selection" or grade stacking to win premierships or something else in the senior grades??

    QLD Colts 2022

    It's not what has gone wrong at GPS, it is more how good the UQ Colts were with many of them stepping up and playing their guts out and for each other. Too many big mouths in the GPS teams who were more intent in trying to pick fights and argue with the referees. The disrespect shown on the...

    Qld Premier Rugby 2022

    Scored 2 tries and won the game for the Tigers. Timely 3rd grade comeback in an important game for both teams. Smells of side stacking to me.

    Call it for what it is......side stacking to win important games.

    Qld Premier Rugby 2022

    The disrespect (and that's putting it lightly) being given to our refs by players and coaches has got out of hand in my view across all teams. Quite simply, it has to stop now and the QRU and clubs need to step up and support our officials to ensure we can continue to play the game we all love...

    Is the Rugby Game Days/Explorer app helping address the side stacking and eligibility issues??

    QLD Colts 2022

    "I just think it was hard for any team to score points on such a greasy deck" - really??? What was the score in Premier Grade again??? Let me think back...51-15.

    QLD Colts 2022

    Hardly call a 17-14 win for Easts convincing. A penalty goal the difference between the Red Heavies and the Tigers.

    Good on him for having a crack and getting some playing time. Good on Norths for getting him in. I hope Lodge gets plenty of support and Norths attract some good crowds and sell a truckload of XXXX Gold. Norths need all the help they can get, so let's give them our support. There might be a...

    QLD Colts 2022

    Agreed - the Uni scrum really dominated. Impressive forward pack. Wests battled hard but were simply outgunned. The UQ backs looks good at times but I think combinations are still a work in progress. UQ Colts had a good day with all teams winning over the doggies. Long way to go though....
