    Class of 2017 - Where are they going?

    Would be good to get Rorke back who was a powerhouse for View assuming he is injury free.

    Class of 2017 - Where are they going?

    Just curious but I can't seem to find out how Charlie Rorke is going for the Raiders? Is he a chance to play NRL soon or is he injured? Apart from Creighton and Cam Murray who are a little bit older, and now Billy Smith, it doesn't sound like rugby has lost too many recently to league and if...

    NSW AAGPS 2019

    Spoke to some Kings supporters who may have been just being cagey but there was talk that Sualli has hurt his shoulder and could be out for the season but this should not be taken as gospel that's for sure. Peninsini out last Saturday due to playing in NSW Rugby League Under 18s side -...

    NSW AAGPS 2019

    Luck yes but it was far more than that. Joeys had a real belief always that they could win the comp just like they thought they could the previous year when they lost 2 games by 3 points despite being regarded by many as having few talented players in both years. Yes Kings beat them last year...

    NSW AAGPS 2019

    I think you'll find a trend that is slowly skewing from rugby back to league. I could be wrong but from 2017 Rorke was a classic example even if he was an exception. Smith and Crichton I'm pretty sure were from a union background not to mention Tepai, Lussick & others although I'm sure Lussick...

    NSW AAGPS 2019

    I think you will also find that quite a few of 2018 have gone to league. RA has typically dropped the ball with very little follow up and when they have, a reactive last minute clutch to keep some higher profile schoolboys in the mix at substantial cost. Whatever happened to the 'Generation X'...

    NSW AAGPS 2018

    View are up for this don't worry about that. With the confidence of 3 reps selected, each game from here is a grand final if they are to win the comp. In particular Bell and Duitallis are without peer in the GPS, are all class and the side's win against Barker was no fluke even though only a...

    Australian Schoolboys & National Championships 2018

    What a load of rubbish. Accusations of politics and hidden agendas (would you like me to quote the posts?), just show up the puerile content when somebody doesn’t get their way and it’s downright disrespectful to the kids who made it.

    Australian Schoolboys & National Championships 2018

    I have no problem with that but 'unbiased'??? Have a look at the posts! As for not criticising that's the pot calling the kettle black. The amount of whining that went on when certain players weren't picked for NSW etc is a criticism of selectors so I suggest some of the posters in this forum...

    Australian Schoolboys & National Championships 2018

    Just sick of hearing the same old thing - accept the selections and move on. It happens! Yes I was at the game - and others before and since in which Bryden played. Good player but plenty of others good as or better and the selectors got it right.

    Australian Schoolboys & National Championships 2018

    I have never seen someone promote the one player Bryden so much in so many of their posts! Fair player but nowhere near the likes of Tricks or Duitallis let alone the many other wingers on show last week. Honestly, if you keep pumping his tyres up that much they may burst. I suspect there would...

    Australian Schoolboys & National Championships 2018

    Wow what a comeback. Things seemed to change when the reserves were brought on as an afterthought with 7 minutes to go and the game seemingly completely lost. Bell was crucial with 2 tries and I see why Joeys rate Scolari so highly when he gets a chance and he can tackle alright. 20 points in...

    NSW AAGPS 2018

    I totally agree. The querying about selections has been and always will be a bone of contention. How about just letting the selectors do their job. Surely they are the best placed and would be looking at many things and not just with rose coloured glasses on. Some of the GPS selections this year...

    OK - fair enough. Hopefully if there have been some selection errors ideally they will come out in the wash.

    CAS 2018

    You obviously have some selection issues and should take your goggles off a bit. If they (CS) happen to play well good and get selected for further honours good on them I say - the negative cry poor theme is becoming very boring to be quite frank. Everyone has a hard luck story somewhere - about...

    CAS 2018

    Yes they are a formidable couple but they will be up against some very classy players also don't worry about that (I'm sure QLD etc will have some very talented wingers too). If you look at the amount of tries and number of tackles some of the others have done over the season, it's going to be a...

    Only a rumour - not trying to stir things up. I will let someone from the school confirm or deny - if correct have heard they are very handy.

    NSW AAGPS 2018

    View will build their team around Dom Easy, Angus Bell and forwards such as Max Moore. Should cause problems for a number of sides this year. My tips in order: Scots - great forward pack returning, 2 new strong centres NRL contracted with Roosters I understand? - too good in each...

    NSW AAGPS 2017

    Joeys will be favourites but I am tipping an upset by 2 points in a thriller: Joeys may have the edge with a bigger tight 5 although people like McClennan won't take a backward step but Riverview will counter this with a slightly bigger & stronger back 3 who are on fire particularly with...

    NSW AAGPS 2017

    That's some pretty big changes/gamble - moving a flanker onto the wing. He'll need to be quick & understand the position or could be made a fool of. View will be pleased (not in a bad sense) about some of Scots' injuries - all class players. Given the Blue & White's form in the first round a...
