Ash came back when the yr 11s came on. Strange composition favouring yr 12s in this team when the yr 11 cohort is far more talented. Young Xavier Howard (yr 10) is also the best inside centre at the school.FT at Villa park Villa beat Ash 19-15
Laurie’s - on track (again)What are everyone’s thoughts on the results of game week 1
Well here are my thoughts - i think a lot of us had said in the last few weeks it would be a pretty open comp. I still think any of Laurie’s, Villa, Padua or Marist can top the table, maybe Eddie’s as well? - it will likely be a shared premiership i reckon. The only surprising result was Iona falling away and being put to the sword. But then they had a couple of significant injuries in the trials. Pats , based on the drubbing they copped look like they are in for a tough year unless they can get up next week. But they play away against Villa.What are everyone’s thoughts on the results of game week 1
that's a very hot take in your opinion on Villa and the Pats. I struggle to believe it will be that close. Peters vs Laurie is a game on the round for me. A team coming from back-to-back premierships against a team that has nothing left to lose. if Peters brings on energy from their returning from injury 10 Wallace charlie the game is sent in another direction. I believe it will be a forwards-dominated game and the backline will rarely see the ball as that's been lauries play style for the past few years. If peters utilise their backline accordingly edge lauries will be in for a shockerPats to beat villa in a very close game
padua to thrash Marist
peters to upset lauries by 5+
hot take possible draw between eddies and iona
Great observation Brad, but unfortunately, only the first teams really count, and in this case, Villanova got over the top pretty well against Ashgrove.
So pretty much nothing has changed at Marist.Apart from the 1st XV, the results in the Opens and 10's were very good. The focus was on these age groups in the pre season. It's good to see Villa rugby getting stronger across all age groups. This wasn't the case a few years ago.
