Waverly lad was sensational and had to be a 10 our of 10 performance. Taking on the line at the right time, getting the ball to runners at good angles, kicking game was brilliant. I thought the Knox lad was overwhelmed by the occassion and some poor choices. Probably a bad day in the office.
seriously it wasnt that bad. Old boys just enjoying the moment when Knox seriously underimpresses aside from the big fella frost. Lots of reputations were left in tatters from Knox - esp given the investment they have made.
Stories from boys about selections which are bizarre, players dropped.
Barker were held up over the line a couple of times from memory - but agree had alot of possession v Waverly
Against Knox Barker dominated through all games excluding the thirds. Just felt that these local games bring out the best of the boys. Without being too critical i felt that the Knox.
One would hope that if the boys are competitive against gps or indeed win (can we dare to dream) that higher rep honours for more than one or two of our boys is possible! If not then CAS would have a right to have a whine
When you think about the skill level in CAS backrowers - there is a high number of solid backrowers - a number of them could be picked ahead of others on any given day - they all offer mobility ahead of size. So strategy has to be thought through.
You know at the end of the day congratulations to the boys selected. Despite us experts a lot of boys will be happy campers and one can assume that the selectors only judged the boys on merit. Well done all lads selected . Now go give it your best shot
