CAS 2019

Milford ... Waverley first choice 13....coming back from injury...so unless he is picked in 1s, and has a blinder, can’t see him in cas 1s

Wlf opinion better than mine ... as he is closer to action

To be pushing for cas 1s from Waverley

4... rice
8 ... moretti
10... volkman
12... Lathan hutch-Walters

Now that is probably being tough ... but others are all injured or have been

Def more looking at cas 2s

After last weekend, I think people are starting to doubt Brook. Yes, they did go down to Barker by 9 but I think that came from a lack of strong trial matchups as we can all agree. Coming off a tough loss from Barker, I really think the boys from Bellevue Hill will give it to Knox both through the backs and forwards. I think we might be looking at the Red, White and Blue by 8. Lock it in!
P.S. I think the 2nds will also be a great game to watch. Both teams with a lot of skill yet also coming off tough loses last week, they'll be looking for redemption.

Couldn't agree more Schooey, Cranners are a dark horse in my eyes and are not to be taken lightly. I hold the boys from Bellevue Hill in the highest regard and believe they are immense along the edges and on Friday, that is where the game will be won and lost.

Definitely agree that Cranbrook were a couple of hard games short of being ready last weekend.

However, I'm also lead to believe that the Barker coaching staff were all mic'd up during the game, giving real time instructions to the boys on the field. (not sure that's allowed?) That, imo is a significant advantage to 16-18 year old boys.

Hopefully the Barker game has stirred the Red White & Blue mongrel spirit, and they step it up against Knox.

For Cranbrook North (11), White (14) and Smith (9) can create a bit of mischief. Slick players, quick and evasive. Will give the Knox backline a bit of a try out but as commented previously the Knox forwards will be a handful.

Seems like you back the boys from Bellevue Hill. Looking forward to watching the game on Friday as Ill be the one in a tahs hat with a beer in hand, hopefully you can come introduce yourself.

For what it's worth, here is my guess at CAS 1s for 2019.
  1. Hawkes (T)
  2. Pollard (B)
  3. Hayman (C)
  4. Rice (W)
  5. Cameron (B)
  6. Gratwicke (K)
  7. Breden (K)
  8. O'Reilly (C)
  9. Smith (C)
  10. Vuki (T)
  11. Swann (W)
  12. Rechner (K)
  13. Milford (W)
  14. Galloway (B)
  15. Griffiths (K)
Unfortunately, couldn't find a place for an Aloy's player, though Allen and Spalding will go close.

Not as strong as 2018, but I think the same applies for GPS. So, CAS, with home ground advantage, could make it three in a row.

SSMM,
Couldn't agree more, I think cranners will be extremely fired up for this supposed 'David vs Goliath' clash. Brook will come in with plenty of passion and serve a real threat to Knox that may become to complacent in their approach. If not, there is always couple of drinks with good mates to keep the rugby enthusiast entertained.

from what ive seen i think the Cranbrook 13 and the Trinity 9 will go close, particularly the Trinity 9 ( and no i am not from Trinity)

There is a suspicious amount of new accounts on the forums, I am starting to suspect that we have schoolboys amongst us, mocking us and our insightful views. I believe that Michael Pooper and HaynePlane420 are mimicking the nuances of our speech as a means to ridicule our great interest in the future of Australian rugby. This behaviour is not acceptable on the forums and I will be contacting the moderators.

All the best,

Rugby League

Well said Rugby League. I myself can also sense that we have some schoolboys amongst us, this should be dealt with ASAP>

Too true MP (Moana Pasifika)! Especially that last bit! Exactly a year ago people were commenting on how Barker ran over Brook, with Brook not being ready for Knox the week after. Come Saturday 5pm David had taken down Goliath, decently as well. I'm backing Brook all the way for this matchup along with Waverley over Aloys and Barker over Trinity. Will we see an upset in those other 2 matchups?

Miked-up coaches? Disgraceful. Never would have happened in my day. Then they just yelled. I played at Sydney University when Dave Brockhoff was still around and you could hear Brock anywhere in the ground. Actually his instructions were always the same - if you were a back, “kick it!” and if you were a forward, your body height needed to be 14 inches lower.

The coaches may have been miked to each other but no sign of the players, watch the video

Is it just me or do CAS get minuscule crowds compared to GPS, is the footy really that low quality or do the students just not care?

I too have noticed these discrepancies in crowd turnouts. Must be the conversion to soccer by many of Sydney's inferior private schools
