    My bet would be UNSW and Randwick. It is an interesting situation with the Waratahs new base being at UNSW and i think John Morrison used to coach both UNSW and Randwick. Dont see how it benefits Randwick except with possibly the access to facilities (Playing and Admin)

    If lockdown is continued for another 4 weeks surely that will mean finishing the season is impossible? I feel for everyone involved. Having been stuck in the various lockdowns in London over the last 18 months and not being able to get back to Oz to see family it's been a tough time, but not...

    Fairly fair wrap so far. For Old Barker it certainly seems like okay at home and not so good on the road. I certainly agree that relegation is on the cards for us. It will be interesting to see if Beecroft/Div 3 champs will want to come up. With Knox being in the same boat in terms of club...

    Very pleased for BOBs with the results over UNSW. I have watched the games on clutch and in most grades UNSW had the size advantage. Bobs had big leads in all 3 grades and nearly got run down. Gosh I wish i could get on a plane from London right now and be on the sidelines. Certainly going to...

    I watched the last 10 minutes of The Newport/Hills clash on clutch last night. The great escape is the perfect description. But well done to Newport on a good day of results!

    Has the Valley/HAC clash been postponed due to recent flooding?

    A few things of interest so far: * Redfield listed in Div 4 * No sign of Sydney Irish, are they running around in 2021? * Kings Old Boys listed in a full time comp not sure if you would call it Div 5 or 6 I certainly hope Raptors make a go of Div 3. It is amazing to see the make up of Div...

    Sydney Subbies 2020

    A couple of cracking games coming up this weekend in Div 2. Undefeated Hills away to St Pats is going to be great. Hills have to play St Pats and HH in the last two rounds which will provide a great run into the finals. Old Barker vs UNSW. This game decides both teams chances of making the...

    Sydney Subbies 2020

    I've got to say the whole promotion thing is a tricky one. In 2018 BOBs were celebrating 50 years. That brought some players out of retirement to have a run in 3rd grade. A club championship , 1st Grade minor premiers and runners up and colts and 3rd grade premierships. Seems like a stable base...

    Well done to Bobs on the win I think it’s the first time we have beaten St Pats in 1st grade! Very impressed that St Pats can attract the quality of players they do!

    I saw that St Pats have two colts sides and are entering a side in the Radford (???) Cup competition. Could they fill the gap???

    Updated draws from the top 2 divisions on the subbies website. Glad to see things are moving quickly!

    Sydney Subbies 2020

    I see they have the draws for the top 3 divisions live on the subbies sites. At this stage they have the draw for the first 2 rounds for 4th division which looks like it will be a 7 team competition. Balmain starting with a home clash against Sydney Irish will certainly be an interesting clash!

    I know that Bobs had a team last year and they plan to continue that in 2020. In fact to reflect that they have updated the clubs name to Old Barker Rugby Club.

    Based on that map they really should be targeting the South West of Sydney for serious rugby growth. I do remember that Liverpool and Campbelltown used to be giants of Sydney subbies. I also believe their should be a club from Bankstown (I know they previously had a club in the mid 2000's. Of...

    Pfitzy! It will be very interesting to see what happens in 2020. I notice that you have Quins and Canterbury in Div 3 replacing Brothers and Newport who you have promoted to Div 2 over Redfield. I think the main thing subbies have to get right in 2020 is the number of grades per division. Is...

    Mate unlucky with the way things turned out on Saturday. Your first grade team had a big turn around after the first few rounds to fly through to the grand final. To win second grade and 4th grade and have four teams in the grand final would suggest HH have had a great season after being...

    Congratulations to Forest. I've seen the video on the Waratahs facebook page of the final kick. Very exciting. I am sure Pats and HH will be frustrated they couldn't win the big one. I think HH lost the final in 17 against HAC so they have now lost a couple in the last 3 years. I still think...

    Shute Shield 2019

    My question in all of this is: What do the Two Blues and the Pirates need to be competitive? Is it money, management resources, players, coaches, volunteers? If say John Singleton walked into 2 Blues headquarters and said here's a cheque for $2 million make it work. Would it help? I hear...

    I think the beauty of promoting Pats, HH and Forest is that you are promoting 3 teams who have a similar level of playing strength. I think the difficulty in the past with promotion from Div 2 to Div 1 has been clubs crashing back the next season due to the difference between the divisions...
