The perceived roughness of the sport is one of my pet peeves. The injury count in the other sports are just as high.
And also off topic a bit, am I the only one who thinks that in removing the old fashioned rucking they have made the game more dangerous. Players stayed on their feet.
Knox 26 def View 19. Half time View was ahead. Knox probably won it in the forwards. A good open game with both sides moving the ball and having good defense. Knox looked a little lethargic at times and lost concentration which was dutifully taken advantage by View.
Knox won the 2nds 19-12
Knox 45 defeated St Pats 21 (7 tries to 3). The halftime score was 21 - 14 to St Pats. Knox looked to be shifting sides - a lot of 3rds in the 2nds and 2nds in the 1sts. They also looked to missing a couple of players. Knox ran the ball a bit and looked to be more backs orientated than.
Has Pulver resigned yet?
I wish I had his KPI's. 100% bonuses for just getting my name right 75% of the time.
The whole process has been shoddy, inept and contemptuous towards the people who actually like rugby.
A bloody disgrace.
Shocking, sad and tragic. My thoughts, wishes and hope to his family.
He was a legend, success and one of us. We can quote John Donne -'No man is an island..', but DV was really above us and one of us. Last year I saw him having a breakfast at Cammeray. My Saturday's revolve around meeting.
The season resumes. Whilst at the beginning it seemed too short, it now has a feeling that it has gone on forever. It will be interesting to see how the break has affected team's fitness, form and enthusiasm.
I think Cranbrook should account for St Aloysius. They are at home and would have.
Sounds like a challenge. There should be a nominated obscure word each week and a prize awarded for its best use in a match review etc.
When the Shute Shield was on the ABC the commentators there often dropped in a word they had chosen in their consumption of the preliminary game bottle of red.
If nothing else if they were played at Knox the last game is on at a bit friendlier time for those who have to work.
However the pies may not be as good - though the cafeteria in the new building is quite promising in its fare.
With the prospect of another wet on the weekend, the weather may stop some blowouts.
Though I am quite sure the main oval at Knox can handle bad weather. I think the wet will play more into the relative comparative advantages/ strengths to Cranbrook. That is, their forwards are closer to Knox.
