Scores from today?
Waverley lost 29-7 v shore and looked very sloppy, especially in the backline.
The forwards were alright against a pretty big pack and Waverley backs have the depth they just need to figure out how to use it. they should consider making some tough changes in the backline if they want to be successful, especially with the halves and centers.
Barker backs made many line breaks from within own half. IMO Sam Kirwan best of the backs. Vass strong running and kicking game but needs to learn to value possession and look to link up. McCoy similarly fast on the wing but wasn't always sure what to do when tackled (appeared to injure elbow late in the game). Williamson sound at 12. Cameron solid in the second row - Shore threw to back of line out so Barker couldn't capitalise on his height. Pollard, Galloway and Wilson played in 1sts - anyone know how they went?Barker 16As beat Shore

CAS 16s - who you would consider
1. O'Reilly (C) 1sts ?
2. Kennedy (K) 16A's ; based on last years form - sounds like
Knox have had some good wins this year without some of their star players/
F Spalding (A) 1sts - can both play prop
4. Cameron (B) 16A's - in good form
5. Wilson (B) 1sts - playing hooker for 1sts
6. Pollard (B) 1sts but playing front row / Molloy (W) if back from injury - outstanding player
7. Breden (K) - has he been playing ? Heard he was out with glandular fever
8. Ieramiah (T) 16A's ? would have been good to have Gratwicke back from NZ as well
9. T Smith (C) 1sts
10. Pollack (A) 1sts
11. Kirwan (B) 16A's
12. Rechner (K) -if back playing and fit/ S Spalding (A) 16a's - good combo with Pollack last yr and superb kicker
13.Galloway (B) 1sts
15. Vass (B) 16a's
Williamson (B)/Layton (T)/Weber (A) /Lamens (C)/Turner (B)/Vuki (T) - need another halfback/Ovenden (B) - can he play halfback/fullback as well?
I agree that Oscar Cheal would perform well at CAS level. Maybe a bench spot as there are many vying for the flanker positions (Wilson, Molloy, Pollard, Breden, Perego, etc). The question is whether Will Kablau has the necessary mongrel to keep the likes of Nick Jones under control.I've seen a fair bit of Kablau and Cheal. Cheal is a quality loose forward - athletic, strong, tough all over the park. Kablau has size and decent skills. I'd expect them both to play 1sts next year.
I've not heard of Ollie Evans before. Is he new?? Ollie Kourtout played in this position last year, whilst Ollie Griffiths played 14 and/or 15. Oliver clearly a popular name down Wahroonga way.G'day Fellas,
Im hearing alot of talk about these new CAS players and imported ect. I went and watched the U16 match between Knox and View and the Knox team were dominant the entire match; yes there were two Knock intercept tries from the Knox team but they had more than 80% possession and territory throughout the match. They didn't execute their set plays but when they did they made plenty of meters. Some boys that should seriously be considered for the CAS U16 team. 1.Will Kablau - 110Kg (Power Runner and a very smart front row who is fit and seems to play very well), 5. Olli Hughes (105kg, 6'5 and also a very fit and smart rugby player who has a good pass, run and play on him), 6/7/8 Oscar Cheal (85kg very fit and fast player who always dominates his opposite number) 9. Tom Constable (70kg, great pass on him and is very agile when he has a run with the ball, has good vision and box), 13. Ollie Evans (Very Quick with the ball and also great handling and allusive when he plays, scored the winning tries against riverview). These boys should seriously be up in the ranks, any thoughts on them?
