Although the AIC 1 team will mainly be filled with Ashgrove, Peters, Pats and Padua boys i still expect to see some Villa, Lauries and Iona boys in there like Brant Quinn, Clem Beaverson, Rani Robin, Joel Sherry, Patrick Agnew and Jarrod Cameron
Villa vs. Padua
Coming off two very impressive home games, the Villa pack will be out in force to try and shutdown the aggressive Padua forwards. The predicted wet weather will only help Villa and if they play with confidence, spectators could be left witnessing a close & exciting game.
With such strong rivalry between the schools i believe it will be a cracker game between Villa and Lauries in the 2nd XV.
Villa 1ST XV could win this week if they enter the game with the right team and mentality.
How have Villa seconds been pumped? As an Ashgrove parent i was very impressed by their efforts against our boys and i believe they got the best score against us, out of the whole school. You must be a bias Lauries father. Smh....
Watching the Padua and Marist game first hand i noticed multiple things.
How green the grass is on Marist playing fields
How good it is hearing the names of players over the loud speaker
How teams like Villa and Iona could beat these teams if they showed true heart and courage
Considering Iona are looking for a definite bottom 4 finish, i fail to see how you believe Iona will "Easily account for Villa in the last game of the season". If Villa sort out their issue they will definitely be competitive in their final 3 games of the season.
The Villanova team has an obvious underlying issue, and i'm sure it will come to air soon enough. But i still believe they can win a handful of games this season. In round 4 they face Lauries and as always i believe it will be a tough game
