Have Padua got a strong 16's?
Have Padua got a strong 16's?I know that their 15's went through undefeated and I've heard they have some pretty big boys. Pat's also have a strong under 15 age group but this year for some reason dropped off by a far distance. Ashgrove 15's came 2nd but when I saw them play and they had no big guys and none of their players stood out, and to win AIC you need a couple of big guys on your team. SEC who finished 3rd had a bad season compared to them coming 1st in yr 8 and yr 9, they have an effective forward pack but their back line cracks under pressure.
To be honest, I don't see why everyone is backing out Villanova.. They have the #10 who I thinks name is something like Kenric Rotscheid-Felu (who is starting for AIC 2 & made u15 QLD starting Fullback), as well as five other grade 11's which started in the 1st XV this year. I have seen previous people say they are generally a bottom team, in the 2011 season they managed to come 2nd with some big wins over Padua, Iona and Peters.
Next years competition should be a strong one, with the likes of Padua making an improvement, Iona coming off a premiership win in the 1st XV, St Laurence's coming off a 16A's premiership and Many other schools having huge improvements.
