Thanks, I'll check and correct.
Snort, I have been locked out for quite a while, I kept asking for a new password (don't know why the old 1 didn't work as per previous), and the mods never sent me an email with a way to change the password, anyway, I have fixed it with a new email address.
My take guys so far from 2 games. The Waves have a long way to go, beaten by Shore (this is a GOOD Shore side! and it would be great for Shore if they could win the GPS this year!) Clearly Joeys will, as usual, be the major hurdle I would think.
Have heard that Scots will be solid as always, and Newington should be strong (they were a young side last year).
Don't know much about View except that they, like the Waves, have lost their opening 2 games.
Neither Waves or View are anywhere near as strong as last year.
IMO, both would have won their respective comps last years had they finished.
Waves also lost to Kings at Death Valley last Sat 15 - 0, Waves had their chances but the better side won, Kings are also a well drilled side, with a big fast backline, and Kings will threaten this year. It will be interesting to see how they go this Sat v Joeys at Kings, whilst a trial, it will still be telling.
(Everyone wants to win every game, Trials is a loose term, imo, every 1st XV team goes out to win! ).
Barker look the clear favs in the CAS this year, followed by Knox. Don't know much about Cranbrook ( but suspect their side isn't as good as last year), know nothing about Trinity and Aloys, but suspect they will do their best.
Waves could surprise, they look good on paper, but so far , not good on grass!
I agree with Handspank's choices this weekend.
Snort, I am VERY interested to see your historical work, how do we access/can we, as yet, access your material?
