They'd just come off winning 3 CAS premierships in the prior 5 years.in fairness, this was when Barker were an average rugby school, before they started importing their 1stXV
A lot of talent finished in 2013/14 and the next round of very good players were about 1-2 years behind.
The depth of players is reducing each year as the demographics of Sydney change. Rugby was compulsory in year 5 and I think year 6 up until about 2015. These days there seems like almost more sport choices than kids at school.
