In relation to doublev's comments, he spot on. Yes, been a Waverley supporter, it goes without saying I may be biased. For next year, 16A's and B's. A talented age group rising through the ranks and this has displayed through their performances and the talent been fielded in the 1st XV. 16A's losses, a close loss which I witnessed, appalling referee by any schools standards (except Alloys), even heard some banter from some of the lower grade 16's players about how biased he was. The A's second encounter against Barker at Barker. Conditions were poor, torrential rain had battered down the previous night and conditions were wet and ball control and security from both teams was poor. Waverley lead until last 5 minutes until a lucky chip kick and regather saw the Barker 10, score under the posts with minutes to go. First encounter at Knox, at Knox, Waves played average and Knox made them pay, alot. Second encounter at Death Valley was not so close with Knox leading and a last play knock-on by Waves after a certain try scoring break, which would certainly have secured the game for Waves. The B's a high intensity game at Barker at Barker lost 7-0 after another lucky chip kick, and a close loss at Knox at Knox 13-5.
The way I see it next year in the 1st XV.
Henry Plume Shield 1st: Knox
2nd: Waverley closely contended by Barker for 3rd or vice versa
6th: Trinity (absolutely dominated in the 16's)
I see the 4th, 5th and 6th positions set in concrete, but 1st, 2nd and 3rd is up for grabs by Waves, Barker or Knox.
