O'k this weekend (is starting soon!!) will be another showcase of Australian u20's rugby. During the week the announcement of the "wider" squad to travel to Georgia in June which raised some banter round the traps. This week we can keep our peeps on those chosen and hopefully gain an insight to their selection.
This afternoon we have the clash of the rebels v gen blue. This game will decide one of the finalists. Will Gen Blue, after watching Rocky I to IV (poor kids), eating raw eggs and meat, erase last weeks game and give it to the Rebels; or will the Rebels show that last years finals appearance wasn't a machination of mathematics?? The weather fine in Melbourne, slight breeze and we will have two teams going at it.
On Sunday we have this years favourites, the Reds, taking on the Young Brumbies (YB) at "marching" Park, Canberra. This match may reinforce the Reds selections, however we know that the YB will be wanting to dent their "grand slam" of wins in the competition. Pride v Stealth, hopefully the viewing punters are the winners.
To the tips this week, we have a new entrant Sideshowview (welcome) and some of the regulars. RugbyMum2 showed her cards early then redoubled when the cards looked bad. So far we have:
RugbyMum2 Gen Blue +28 Brumbies +1
HTC Gen Blue +5 Reds +30
SidelineShow Gen Blue +2 Reds +20 &
Me Rebels +7 Reds +19
So if you want to throw your hat in the ring (Linespeed, Farmer or Thebreakdown) you only have about 3 hours to do so.
