    League Targets

    Does anyone know how many of the current wallabies are on $800k a year out of interest. Feel for some of the team who have stuck strong to the game

    Wallabies 2024

    Would certainly look at Harry Hockings and Opeti Helu, both very physical players, we got sadly found out in the lock position with any form of physicality at the collision, Frost is ok at the lineout and support play, the rest he relies on the tight 5 to do the hard yards. Hockings will give...

    Maybe they could also "livestream" the handing out of Wallaby Jerseys at the GPS year 12 presentation nights to assist

    Shute Shield 2023

    At last recollection it was 40 total team points for Colts,100 for 1st grade ,60 points for 2nd grade , looks like Uni had a total of 41 points according to fuse sport. How the points are calculated someone may be able to supply the competition playbook.

    Waratahs 2021

    Agree it is difficult but 2-3 years of holding tackle pads and hardly any game time hits the confidence of the player, look at young Macauley for example, looking forward to seeing what he can achieve in a different setup. Would have liked to have seen him have a couple of solid years in Shute...

    Waratahs 2021

    This is also a great article, hits the nail on the head around player development and recruitment.2 years in shute shield should be a minimum, if they are good enough to get a contract at 19 let them prove themselves in a tough week in and week out environment...

    Ahhh, think the power has well and truly shifted from the North Shore to Eastern Sydney now...

    Under-20 Competitions including Oceania & World U20s

    His dad Steve is great mates with adrian thompson after running aus schools champs for the ARU. Feel so sad for the boys who busted their butts for the past 6 months only to be replaced by someone who turned their back on their country.

    Under-20 Competitions including Oceania & World U20s

    Would definitely replace the locks and 8 with Douglas, Wood, Harris who have done enough, have watched the others for some time and think there are better cattle around who will put in for the whole team (including work at the breakdown). Don't really care if they are contracted players, we need...

    Under-20 Competitions including Oceania & World U20s

    Will be great to see Douglas, Kibble & Donaldson all get a good run as rate them highly. Kibble and Mcreight could become the "Pooper "of the junior Wallabies. The lock and 6 positions are really up for grabs with neither of the super rugby contracted players impressing over the past 12 months...

    Under-20 Competitions including Oceania & World U20s

    Ahhh yes it is. If you dont believe Thompson is pulling the strings in the background just look. He was in coaching box on tv last year as well as in France.. Cron was not involved. Thommo will be there again

    Under-20 Competitions including Oceania & World U20s

    Have to disagree and results show it. Between Gilmore and Thompson they have not achieved anything of note over the past 3 years. The whole program is biased....wait until we see who is on the plane for argentina....no doubt they have a couple of queenslanders lurking in the background...

    Would really like to hear where the thinking is on the success (or lack thereof) in the 20s program. All the focus appears to be on the top jobs yet once again we appear to be ignoring the pathways. Great time to clear the cupboard and get some serious skills in this critical area. You only need...

    Reds 2019

    Seriously !!!! Stewart CRAP??? He and Maddocks are the 2 most talented 10s in the land, not sure which games you are watching. Hamish should be in England now, he is the future.

    QLD GPS Rugby 2018

    Maybe a couple of players called Mcreight and Kibble (Reds 20s) (who are both eligible for U20s next year) have had something to do with it rather than the "SIZE" excuse. Both are highly talented and have already been included in this years Under 20s Wallabies training squad. Should be...

    NRC RD2: Sydney Rays vs Canberra Vikings

    Thats why the tahs love him ..Foley MKII, kicks the ball seemlessly at every opportunity, did it at schoolboys and hasnt changed.Lots of other options playing shute shield...but you would have to look out side your comfort zone

    NRC RD2: Sydney Rays vs Canberra Vikings

    Could not even make 10 in his colts side..Lots of surprise Randwick selections bought in late.

    NSW teams 2018

    Please don't put ideas into their heads they might actually wake up to how many players walk away from the game or head overseas because of exactly this type of behaviour. However they can see no wrong with the current model....grassroots? loyalty to the game? pffft
