    School sporting scholarships/recruitment

    In other words, you have no proof! So are you saying that there is a list of Rugby scholarships printed in blue and white on the website? I don't think so. Are you familiar with the Yallari program? Maybe investigate what that is before you start throwing mud. I can easily list all of the...

    I don't think he was because that is actually against GPS byelaws - Coaches are required to be in the technical area on the sideline. They are not allowed to take up a position away from this - although having said that lots of coaches seem to ignore it and stand on the deadball line...

    Can you give any specific names Random... As far as i know View are pretty clean on the scholarship count.

    NTS/Gold Squads

    JGS happens on weekends so Joeys boys can attend... NGS happens during the week so generally they are not allowed to go. From what i am told Brth Boyd is fairly anti the NGS.

    CAS Rugby 2011

    They wear their respective away kits - Knox play in Black at Cbrook and Brook play in red when they travel up the highway.

    NSW AAGPS Rugby 2012

    GPS 2012 rugby competition is to take place totally in Term 3 - meaning yes that rep sides will be picked solely from trial observations. Doesn't bode well, seeing how wrong they have got it the last couple of years with more games to watch! The only good thing about it is that the comp will run...

    Ahem..... have a look here http://austschools.rugbynet.com.au/default.asp?id=186098 for the revised group for the NZ fixtures... Seems like someone involved with the schoolboys set up finally realised that you need props who can scrummage rather than props who are ball players. At least they...

    I must have been watching a different game to you, or maybe i just didn't have the same benefit of the Stanmore tinted black and white glasses that you did. I'm not going to bag the bloke but lets just say that there were a lot of line breaks made in his defensive channel... I think he was...

    At least you admitted it :-) Joeys are on the slide in general. Have a look at their results over the past decade - i don't know and i'm sure a Joeys anorak will correct me or come up with the stats - but has the last 10 years been one of their leanest periods in history in terms of 1st XV...

    Dear Joey2012 - sorry i have upset you with my forthright comments. In case you hadn't noticed this is a public forum... where people post their thoughts and opinions. The whole idea is that you can write and say what you want. I quite enjoy winding people up - but generally i write what i...

    NSW AAGPS Rugby 2011

    You're dreaming Knight. Scots backrow were good but i think a bit of an overstatement above. On the 4 or 5 occassions i saw them play they were good when the going was easy... But what happened when they came up against a decent forward pack - i.e. View? They all went missing. Miller gave away 3...

    Lee - again being careful not to mention the "s" word, but if enough "new" players decide to go to a school, it stands to reason that their 2nd team will also get much stronger. I think the reason the difference between 1s and 2s was less this year than in previous is largely due to the bigger...

    School sporting scholarships/recruitment

    Pretty simple answer to that one Kiwi... Because Sports scholarships are not allowed!!! So they get called all rounder scholarships, or boarding bursary or some other bs title, but everyone knows that the boy is only there to play rugby. Very damaging to the cultural fabric of the school when...

    NSW AAGPS Rugby 2011

    This is my take on it: A number of things have happened that have had an impact on Joeys Rugby and as a result, they are not as dominant now, and possibly won't ever return to their dominance of old. Firstly - the competition being made strictly U18 has had a big impact on a number of...

    As Smartchild said... Who cares. The 1st and 2nd XV competitions are the only ones that there is a trophy for! In regard to another school that matches their standards in regard to win lose, you could counter that by saying name another school that puts as much emphasis on training especially...

    Only if the sides contain a large number of Yr 11 or Yr 10 boys. Do you know how many players Riverview will have returning from the 1st 2nd and 3rd XVs? And even then it doesn't really guarantee success - just look at Newington this year. 9 players back from a Championship winning side in 2010...

    Waratah Shield 2011

    Given that the best Newington can finish in the GPS this year is 3rd, and that is if they win both their remaining games against Kings and Joeys, which is no gaurantee, you would have thought that they would have put out their best side possible to try and salvage something from a disappointing...
