    QLD GPS Rugby 2021

    Scholarships when paid for by external sources don't increase fees, that much is undeniable. But in a situation where a school is otherwise fully enrolled, and allocates places to students who are not paying fees, then fees for all other students rise. If you think there are no adverse impacts...

    Seriously? What school did you go to; so I don’t send my kids there.

    Reds 2021

    I agree with Reg, he hasn't played 13. Stewart started at 10 for every single Qld Country match in 2017 and 2018 except one, round 9 2017 vs Perth where he started at 12. He started at 12 in every single match in 2019. I don't see why he would come into consideration at 13 for the Reds unless...

    I don't disagree, but the obvious retort is that scholarships push up the fees for all other parents, including those who are making significant sacrifices to send their kids to a prestigious school. I think ultimately the exact situation you describe is what most people/parents are supportive...

    Rebels 2021

    The Vaihu brothers went to a day school, they didn’t board up here so I think the family moved at some point. On Rugby Heaven last night Dave Wessels was talking about both the Vaihu brothers and made a specific point that Glen was born in Melbourne but didn’t make mention of David. Regardless...

    Rested with a left calf injury apparently Ready's partner is about to give birth, and Thrush will start the season late due to recent surgery - no idea what the surgery was.

    Not according to this article - https://www.theaustralian.com.au/business/aviation/reds-flying-high-with-new-alliance-union/news-story/0caacce16bebb47ac2a71a7cfd729676 “St George Bank would continue as the Reds’ major sponsor as the team heads into the 2021 Super Rugby season.“

    Broadcast options for Australian Rugby

    In April I threatened to pull the pin and the price dropped from about $100 to $40 a month. A mate worked at foxtel and advised me to say you're calling to cancel, the retention team has a lot of leeway to move prices/packages that other help desks don't.

    Reds 2020

    So we can exclude games that we don’t like? Then by my reckoning the Reds won 8 from 9, only losing the final. Pretty good year if you ask me.

    Wallabies 2020

    The argument he makes is that the Wallabies will be playing 8 tests in 10 weeks, which is more demanding than a World Cup, so Hooper will potentially be rested for a match or two.

    I wasn’t there but heard similar things to what you’ve relayed here. Carter Gordon was the starting 10 for wests, and I was told his going off injured was the biggest turning point in the match.

    Chibba says he was a prop in the 1st XV in grade 11 here (if I'm honest I probably just want to link to a video of Terrace beating Nudgee) https://youtu.be/F0IkCYHdbqs?t=70 For what its worth, I think the move by Nasser is a good one.

    Yes, its very unlike the Reds to groom a young flyhalf, throw him in at the deep end, blame him for a loss, and then discard him for the next new shiny thing.
