Good tough game with red & yellow card against St.Pats.Scores at St Patrick’s, Strathfield
Stannies 28 over St Patrick’s 5
Some who watched the Greg's game said they left a few tries out there as well. Bodes well for next week as Greg's were missing a few of there more experienced players as well...A couple of interesting scores in the first round. Oakhill hot favourites after that result but a big win to St Greg’s travelling to Orange to win in the cold has opened it up. Stannies continuing on their quiet way with several players missing from the pack.

It appears to be the game of the round with both teams having good wins whilst missing several of their more experienced players. Several of the more experienced stannies boys will be missing due to injury including their captain.
Oakhill and Auggies are looking to strong in their games against St Pius and Kinross.
Games this weekend
St Gregs v Stannies at Gregs.
St Pius v Oakhill at Pius
Auggies V Kinross at Auggies.
Any other results from the weekend? And where do they post the ISA rep team lists?
1st15 Oakhill 57 Pius 8
2nd 15 Oakhill 80 - 0 (Oaks dropped numbers for last 10 or so minutes)
3rd 15 Oakhill 60 - 0 ( game called early)
Admire the spirit that Pius showed on Saturday and again the same as against Auggies Oakhill really only ran away with it in the last 20 minutes. First points were a Pius penalty after 15 minutes.
Events sound interesting in the Gregs v Stannys game.
Respect works both ways. You do not walk off and tell a coach him and his team are a disgrace. The guy in the stands that he red carded yelled out, " You cant say that", when the referee told the Stannies 16s captain that this is a contact sport, this was after a Stannies player copped a high shot. All respect for referees, but this guy wanted to make a statement, and that he did! He stood and watched whilst 2 Gregs players laid into the red headed fellow from Stannies. Only after the crowd yelled at him did he put his flag up. Like I said, respect works both ways!!Not sure what the issue with the AR was. If by putting his flag up when someone was out, then maybe he did cost them a try. But I can't remember counting 4 of them. I think there was a Stannies yellow card for a tip tackle, but apart from that I didn't see too much more in the game. A couple of passes that were line ball by both teams but that's it.
2nd XV was a big Stannies win & finished a bit early with a neck injury at the tackle late in the game. Waited an hour for the ambo's to get there while the 1st XV game was moved to the #2 field. Greg's got up in the 16A's & from what i saw they were fairly dominant. As for the refereeing, if you can't respect the referee (players, coaches & spectators alike), save yourself the petrol money & just stay home.. Hard enough to be in the middle without others trying to wreck your weekend.
Super impressed with the Stannies media unit who I think broadcast live 4 games of football on Facebook (complete with half time interviews) from what i saw.
