I know in the past there has been re-selection leading into CAS 1st XV game 2 be interested to hear possible changes to the original team from game 1. I have heard many say that version 1 had a tough night due to conditions and it was hard to get any go forward especially at set piece , but...
Slack Smith blue card on Saturday so will be missing this week and probably from CAS selection.
I also agree the dominant pack being Waverley should be rewarded with bulk selections and stand by my earlier team predictions.
I was fortunate enough to find a car park a 10min walk away from QP which was a good start to the afternoon. Watched the warm up of Knox 1st XV and was impressed by the size and athleticism crisp ball handling and hard contact on pads. Unfortunately that was about the best I would see of them...
A little bit of research through the archives and info from a reliable source tells us this. Snort you are correct in saying the game of the round will be at QP tomorrow afternoon. My research tells me that the 9 CAS spot should be locked in with Thorn the winner by a country mile. He is in the...
Will chime in here with my 2 cents although probably not even worth that. My selection is picked from players ( year 11 ) in the 2020 merit team and then select current form around them.
1 Smith (W)
2 Obaseki (C)
3 Black (K)
4 Halaholo (W)
5 Tavana (W)
6 Slack Smith (B)
7 Kardash (B)
CAS rep team you would probably start with the 2020 merit team and fill the spaces of the year 12 boys that have moved on.
would the Barker and Waverley 10’s NRL contracts impede their possible selections ?
On another note I hear Waverley had an opposed session against Randwick 1st colts with...
I just seen the highlights of Kings v Waverley and wow. Everything I have been reading and hearing about the Waverley forwards seems to be true. From 1 through to 8 are very skilful ball players big , hard and fast on both sides of the ball. I believe 5 of the 8 are returnees from 2020. Outside...
2020 Waverley 1st played Randwick 1st colts and came away with I believe 4 tries v wicks 2 tries. This set the tone for their CAS campaign becoming as we know premiers. I hear that Waves are of to the nations capital to play Ed’s this week.
News out of QP is if the trail against Riverview was to take place this weekend that the double V were going to start a centre that could bear lay make the 3XV last season ! I hope this guy has gotten better in the off season. The forward pack seems on paper seems like the should be one of the...
WLF My apologises I was not aware that your son was in contention for a backline spot. My selection was purely on returning 1st players and some who were injured last season. Given that most of 2020 2nd XV have now left QP then selections would be made from the next best team incoming 16As. It’s...
Would like to chip in. I agree trials will determine final selection for round 1 CAS and a great opportunity to gauge where players are at including those on the fringes. Elder should secure a back row spot along with King which leaves open 1 spot and I suggest a battle between Hogget and...
A few outside the box selections here.
Tight 5 pick themselves , as do second row. 6 & 7 will be between 3 contenders in Hogget , Alex Elder and Halakatoa the latter still needs to improve but should be handy from the pine.
Worthington to play at 10 with Nick Quinn and Dimovitch at 12 & 13...
CAS fans are there any updates on your 1st XV teams or possible wild card selections ?
I like what I am hearing coming out of QP as I’m told Waverley are deep into pre season and are building a strong group.
As followers know there will be a good number of 1st returning and fringe players from...
Hahaha fake news Coyote !!!! As you may or may not know I am a fan of both Waverley and Randwick rugby .Randwick outplayed Camden all over the field. I’m not sure what game you were at but from what I seen (footage attached ) in the Randwick front row there was only 1 player from 1st XV that I...

What a CAS season one never to be forgotten for many reasons. Congratulations to deserved winners Waverley who in my mind are outright opens champions 16 As ( share title ) 3XV (7th title in a row ) 2nd XV (4th in a row ) 1st XV (3rd title in the last 5 years ) just shows that their rugby...
Would you know the Waverley starting line up. ? Let’s hope there forward pack remains the same as they have been a real highlight of the season ( how many of them will return 2021 )
Volkman has been the star of the backline 9 times out of 10 he will make something happen.
Will there be a CAS...
