Have Padua got a strong 16's?
I have watched this age group (U16 2013) for a long time now and the early top teams were Iona, Padua, Lauries and Ashgrove.
Eddies stepped up in 2011 and won two consecutive premierships with what I assume was the addition of Isiah Perese because they came dead last in 2010 but since he left for ACGS this year and the likes of Clifton Setu moving up to the firsts, they under-performed this year.
Padua and Iona both dropped dramatically in 2011, leaving the title for the years to come as a contest between Ashgrove, Lauries and Eddies.
Peters have remained around the middle of the ladder and Villa and Pats have remained on the bottom. While Padua did very poorly this year, you can expect that with a full strength side they will become a force to be reckoned with once more.
Be aware that previous years can often be a poor indicator of how a team performs once it reaches Opens. U18 players, U16 players and new coaching staff can often cause a lot of upsets, shown this year when Ashgrove came out and lost three games for the first time in over a decade.
