ISA 2018

Tough day in the office for the boys in black...

Actually, a tough season overall so far. What was predicted to be a formidable team to carry on the momentum of last year's surprising 1st XV has copped quite a few setbacks to hinder this. Injuries throughout the whole Opens has stretched the depth of this side (14 injuries if I recall correctly from one of the parents) as a result of the gruelling pre season draw.

It is for that reason alone that I see the main risk of a prolonged pre season and a one round comp...

Pats 1sts, 2nds and 16A's play Knox this coming break, on the last Saturday of the break.
Kudos to the rugby master for rebooting the traditional fixture! I wonder how they'll fare with the usual favourites this year?

Any other holiday fixtures for the other schools?

I don't believe Stannies have any games over the break.
ISA 1sts are going to have a tough game tomorrow against CAS just watched the game against GPS and CAS looked very strong.
Good luck to all the ISA boys playing over the weekend

HB just got the score from the CAS forum, Tom Hooper 4 was playing for ISA not sure how he went, they must have played well though seeing as though CAS got the better of GPS the other day.
Hopefully there will be some video come through in the next couple of days.

Rod Skellet on the CAS thread you can see has posted that Tom Hooper played well. He is one to keep an eye on. Thanks for responding CB!!

Would have loved to be down watching the games today, they have some seriously good players to choose from this year for the NSW sides. Will definitely get down to Riverview for the Championships.

Tom Hooper played well. He had some very strong carries. Best for ISA was Freeman. I think he will be openside flanker for NSW1 with Reimer and Moretti. Wilson was equal with Edmed in the 10 dept. CAS wingers were definately better both on defense and offense. Your 15 Danial Ala needed to get more involved. He has speed and skills. Preston Simpson was on hand to score 2 tries but much of the credit was to others for setting him up. The ISA scrum was not balanced and the CAS tight 5 got the upper hand as the match progressed. CAS always looked more threatening and were probably a 2 try better side than the score suggests.

Anyone have any scores from the 16s games today.
ISA 2s (gold) had a heavy loss to GPS 1 first up then had a tough fought 20 all draw against Aices and got through on first try scored after both teams scored equal number of tries
ISA 1 (black) went down 10-5 to GPS 2 in a great game. Had a few chances to get over the line towards the end with one try borderline held up and one ball lost over the line. Their last game against CCC was called off after one of the CCC lads fell awkwardly in a tackle and an ambulance was called. CCC were up 10-0 at the time so the game was awarded to them.
Tomorrow the blacks play Aices and the golds play CCC

Thanks Ball in Hand much appreciated.

ISA blacks lost to Aices 25-15 A few tough calls went against them including their flanker getting red carded for a dangerous tackle and several deliberate knockdowns from Aices slipping through as ok. ISA gold went down 20-0 or thereabouts to CCC. Don’t think the score line was an accurate reflection of the game. Overall I think the loss of a lot of key players through injury and maybe a lack of depth/numbers in this age group took its toll and made this a tough year for the boys. That said there was some talent on show from our boys Just hope the selectors agree
