Any results from the nursery? Joeys v knox 16as. 15as? Waverley v newington 16as, 15as?
I know the knox coach (Williams?) cops a bit of stick , but tell you what he has done an excellent job with this years team . Talk about well drilled. At the breakdown they are excellent. They were very courageous against auggies to clinch a draw on the bell, and today smoked a disjointed joeys outfit.
And the team does a good job helping referee in unison
I thought last years knox team was going to be hard to beat . With try scoring machine widders-lee (2) and Connor Watson in centres..
However this team looks even better . The best would be big hitting number 6 (swinton?), and high work rate number 8, the number 13, and pacey winger
Front row might of been monstered by auggies, but don't think any cas front row will be capable of that
So hard to see where this team can be beaten . Maybe weaker on one edge, and maybe dim unitive fullback might struggle under high ball
It will take a minor miracle, to beat this team
Either that or a mild mannered maths teacher from the east . But wouldn't bet my house on it
Williams cops a bit of stick because he's employed as a professional rugby coach presumably to win the competition. If he doesn't achieve this then it is right to ask why people's hard-earned money is being spent to pay a professional coach who is unable to better amateur, part-time coaches.
Knox from 16s upwards look strong. There will be a number of good years ahead for Knox rugby. I am just not certain that it's the coach or a bunch of strong year cohorts . Or both. I can see 2015-2017 being great years ahead. The trials this weekend at Knox 1 are interesting however as joeys were missing a ton of players and knox were missing 6 due to cadet camps. That just demonstrates the depth at knox to draw upon .
Yes very strong years coming through. Training all summer, big commitment in the weight room etc. Knox will dominate. Some might say they will win this year in spite of the coach. Still amazed they managed to lose last year with such a strong side (points differential of +304!)
