  1. bring back rucking

    CAS Rugby 2023

    Yeah it’s A… 2 gps, a few isa and then 1 round of CAS…. So 10 games in total (plus a trial in the last week of Easter holidays)
  2. bring back rucking

    Wallabies 2023

    Swinton will be there assuming he’s fit. Rennie is a noted fan and he is the best lineout exponent out of our backrow stocks particularly at 2. I don’t think we will take a 6th lock with Holloway and Ned providing cover.
  3. bring back rucking

    CAS Rugby 2023

    Sorry just to clarify - 2 against GPS, 5 against various ISA and then one comp round of 5 against the other CAS schools?. Given the GPS is doing the 10 game 2 round format I assume the 2 games against gps would need to happen prior to that (although GPS comp has traditionally started 1 week...

    CAS Rugby 2023

    Has anyone had any information as to whether CAS will revert to home and away for 2023? Not a question as to whether that’s the right or wrong thing to do, more interested in whether there has been any decisions made - the CAS website is never a great source of up to date information
  5. bring back rucking

    CAS Rugby 2022

    Knox took their best players from the field very early in the second half. Not only were the majority of 2nds players on the field there were also a couple of 16s getting an opportunity to play for the first time this year…. Towards the end it was 13 on 15. If they kept their best players on the...

    CAS Rugby 2022

    Rugby League, Cranbrook appear to the on the up? I only saw them once this year but they had a few players in the rep program and impressed on the scoreboard in some of their games. Can you give any insight? I know they always rise for waves but how is the program in general? What’s your thoughts on...

    NSW AAGPS 2022

    but I bet he plays his heart out to get that triple bar… so the point stands. These kids are not only competing for a triple bar but also gps selection and further rep honours which all happens on the back of this “trial” period given (as I mentioned earlier) those teams are selected 30mins...

  9. bring back rucking

    NSW AAGPS 2022

    I think the adults on this forum would toss a coin… I’ve seen them both at full strength and they are both great sides… you would get a different result more often than not… and importantly, both sides would be trying their best to win… the “we don’t take trials as seriously as you do” rubbish...
  10. bring back rucking

    NSW AAGPS 2022

    So just to confirm there’s 3-4 trials (some internal some external holiday games) followed by another 6 trials (as you put it) in which only one association take seriously for 5 of those games whist the other association doesn’t take seriously or include their best players… then 30 minutes after...

    CAS Rugby 2022

    These numbers are deceiving. It really should be about senior school numbers for rugby. The Knox numbers include the large Knox Prep which is 750 kids plus Wahroonga prep which is a co-ed k-6 school under the Knox umbrella which has 260 and 2100 in the senior school
  12. bring back rucking

    NSW AAGPS 2022

    The only logic that you can apply is that the last 5 years have shown that on any Saturday 3 of the 6 CAS sides and 5 of the 9 GPS sides can, and do, beat each other regularly. (And with the recent resurgence of shore that may be 6 if the next few years follow the same trajectory) in your...

    CAS Rugby 2022

    Knox goes to 8ths with enough players to go to 10ths but can’t get games for that many boys so a loaded bench of 7s and 8s less injuries / absences
  14. bring back rucking

    CAS Rugby 2022

    I’d agree with that. And with alloys withdrawing from 14a and 15a and only fielding 9 teams in total it makes it very difficult to find games for teams (amplified now with the removal of GPS for the entire season)… during the CAS rounds this year a couple of knox age group teams had a “bye” due...
  15. bring back rucking

    CAS Rugby 2022

    So has the 2 rounds actually been tabled by CAS or has the news of GPS reverting to home and away caught them by surprise?
  16. bring back rucking

    CAS Rugby 2023

    So what does season 2023 look like with the news that GPS is understood to be reverting to the 10 round home and away draw?
  17. bring back rucking

    CAS Rugby 2022

    That’s a concern. Do we think CAS subsequently reverts to 2 rounds as well? Difficult scheduling with Alloys not playing in the 14 or 15a’s rounds this year and fielding 9 teams in total

    CAS Rugby 2022

    Yes it was run by McCrindle who sent it out online with answers anonymous
  19. bring back rucking

    CAS Rugby 2022

    Is that confirmed? That is frustrating. I’ve enjoyed the inter association games and from a Knox perspective it has been quite rewarding with multiple victories over GPS schools in the firsts… the crowds have also been great
  20. bring back rucking

    CAS Rugby 2022

    Surely something comes of the CAS survey that was done a couple of months ago. A lot of the questions had an underlying rugby theme. I assume they don’t commission a consulting firm for the fun of it. I still don’t know which schools were the drivers behind this and what changes they are...
