    Waratahs 2024

    Where is this better coach coming from? Also one genuine 2nd row, only 2 front rowers of real quality (when they are on the park) and the worst 5/8 out of the whole pack we had two years ago. We also have no depth in half backs, behind Gordon or any real line bending No.8. Go to Argentina, grab...

    NSW AAGPS 2024

    Auggies always has a fair bit of talent coming through, unfortunately a number of bigger schools use them as a breeding ground and a fair bit of that talent ends up on the north shore somewhere. For the boys who are serious about their footy i don' think the ISA comp is strong enough to keep...

    Plays for the Rats so not allowed to get picked. Im sure there is a 2nd grade hooker at Easts or Uni they will pull up.

    2024 Under 20 Rugby Champs all match discussion thread

    You can't play running rugby in a hurricane and we didnt pick a team for the conditions. The Argies played smart tight footy with a big pack, we had a lightweight backrow that didn't provide much punch (would be great on a dry flat pitch). In the right conditions I think that team would've...

    Knox has postponed their Gala day due to the weather prediction. Games against Joeys going ahead at this stage, although I expect they will try to protect the fields this early in the season.

    Wallabies 2024

    I think Kellaway is a lock for FB. He has the best rugby brain out of the candidates, is calm, more of a leader and less prone to errors. Schmidt picks players who stick to his game plan as well so i think someone like Pietsch may get a run, he is not the most talented but he runs straight, has...

    Shute Shield 2024

    Great day and solid game but geez Manly would it hurt to have a few more beer tents. 35 minute queues for warm beer and two portaloos. Club could have made another 10k. Also shame the game has received no coverage, the derby is the best rivalry in the comp and gets the best crowds but nothing in...

    Alatini played for the Rats and moved to Canberra with a large squad of NSW players like Johnno Ryan and Malakye Enasio. Massimo was from Qld then did time playing for Wests in the ACT before taking an offer from the Reds. Yes, Barrett has an academy contract but was in Fiji with the senior...

    Waratahs 2024

    A couple of years ago Edmed was ranked 3rd or fourth then Harrison got injured. Harrison has a better running, passing and kicking game but looks like will be cut in favour of Edmed and Bowen. We have a great back 5 but they never get the ball at the right time because the inside halves don't...

    Shute Shield 2024

    I believe Rats beat West, Gordon and Norths comfortably in grade trials, how'd they go in colts?

    Queensland Reds 2024

    Sorry if the tackler has bent his knees and hips to get into a tackling position and then the attacker drops his height into the defence that's not red. Head contact unavoidable but there is mitigation, yellow only. Compare that to Lachy Swinton's red last year.

    Australian Rugby / RA

    RA needs some genuine assets to support itself and grow in the future, they currently own nothing of value. NRL just bought another hotel pushing their asset register over $250m and the AFL asset register assures them of huge income. We rely on broadcast for everything and the tiny size of...

    Broadcast options for Australian Rugby

    Super round has nothing special about it. the promotion is poor/non-existent and doesnt explain why it is happening. Make it an ANZAC round or Pasific round or something and play u20s and women's games on the same day. One venue in Aust and one in NZ.

    The biggest issue is that when rugby dumped Fox, News Ltd black banned rugby. The amount of news articles, game coverage advertising etc is now a fraction of what it was so it is impossible to grow the game. The SMH does maybe one article per day. Unfortunately, by cutting out the country's...

    All schools do it, good luck to them, so this banned topic should be dropped or we will get shut down like the GPS page is right now. Is any school touring their teams in the holidays?

    Id say it is more to put a stronger body behind the props who got punished last week.

    On paper you would reckon Knox and Waves this year, but Knox forward pack is nothing like last years, the backs should dominate though, so if their forwards can gain parity they should go well. Barker could be a smokey, still some talent there but are also rebuilding. Last years Cranbrook...
