I think what the game showed was that if you want to beat eddies this year you should be praying for rain! I know that the referee shouldn't be criticised and how hard the job that they do is, having blew a few whistles myself back in the day! But unfortunately for eddies I believe that they got the wrong end of the stick on the weekend.but still eddies game away with the win. Maybe a reality check they need to get out of second gear perhaps ? Don't expect another game that close for the rest of the season.
Lastly the Eddies forward pack should be ashamed! They had a good 50-60kgs (if not more) on the Grammar pack and yet still couldn't come close to bullying them at set piece. Kudos to the Grammar boys who showed size doesn't matter.
Has there been any more word on the situation from the uni vs dara game? They seem to be unaffected judging by the score they put up against ADFA was the earlier post a wild exaggeration of actual events?
Was anyone actually at the game, or are people just getting reports from a secondary source. I would like to know what actually happened at that game.
On another note does anyone know what the changes to the draw (if any) are occurring. Speculation have arisen that 2 teams will drop out of div 1 into the div 2 competition. Does anyone know anything more to this?
Have yet to hear from someone actually at the game I must admit. However, there has obviously been some discipline issues as I've heard now from 3 sources of multiple red cards. If you have watched Uni-Norths play this year, you'd agree that the team is a mess. Each week they have new un-registered players, they swear, complain and fight. At the end of the day a harsh stance needs to be taken.
On the other note, yes that speculation is in fact true. The bottom 2 teams from division 1 will drop down to division 2 (ADFA and Vikings). This is to ensure a strong Division 1 competition. Unfortunately this week however, the ACT schoolboy representatives will not play for their clubs as they have the national championships. Not only is this bad planning, but because the ACTJRU did not put out the draw for a round 8 match to be scheduled this weekend a number of players may also be unavailable because they may be away. The round should be re-scheduled.
