What is the rule in relation to uncontested scrums. I thought at one stage it was a forfeit but I think Tuggies went uncontested a couple of weeks ago and had to drop a player off from the point they called it uncontested. I can't see Tuggies getting past Wests this week.
I always thought the rule was if you started a game with uncontested scrums it was an automatic forfeit but if during the game you do not have capability to continue with a contested scrum you were able to go to uncontested without it impacting the result of the game.
I believe this is correct. As long as you start the game with contested scrums it doesn't impact the game. It's probably happened a few times but I know Gungahlin went uncontested against tuggies earlier in the year and it didn't mean gungahlin had to forfeit.
I do have concerns about the depth at prop at tuggeranong. Presuming Wagner is no good this week, Mcgrath probably comes in at tight-head from what i understand it's not his preferred side (whatever that means haha). If he or Taula get injured i think the next man up is probably cushan in colts? And he got worked by the gungahlin colts front row on the weekend.
Could be trouble.
From what I can see Adam is well-respected and I don't think he needs to move on - what I saw from the Whites First Grade side this year is that they were just a bit one dimensional - always close to being that really dynamic side they were last year but just a bit of the mark.
I think bringing Mosely into first grade from Colts was the right move - when in form he was arguably the best 10 running around in 1st grade at different points of the season - I can see him becoming a Brumby - very much a "New Zealand" style 10 - can control the game well.
Saying that though they dragged him from the game - prob about 15 mins into the 2nd half - and he was NOT happy about it.
I predict the Vikings will get a flood of fatties next year from aspiring front rowers from all over the country, who have visited this thread.
Not sure if it's true but did Ryan Jones start for Queanbeyan second grade today. He was named in the stampede. If I'm not wrong he started in first grade grade last week against Wests. If this is the case we have serious a problem with final qualifications in the competition.
So you think it's fair No8? Jones played first grade last week and you think it's ok for him to play 2nd grade in the grand final. If the valley did that there would be an uproar.Jones didn't end up playing today - he's been out for most of the season and maybe played 2-3 2nd grade games and 2-3 1st grade games - def has not been a perm member of the 1st grade side this year. He will more than likely play next week I'd say due to Qbns No.8 sustaining a knee injury.
Unsure sure what the issue is here?
I'd understand if they had named Penca.

Not reading into it like you say, but it should not be allowed. If He played first he can't go back to seconds.There have been prob 5-6 guys in the 2nd grade side that have played 1st or 2nd grade throughout the season - Jones this year has been apart of the 1st and 2nd grade sides - not a perm member of 1st grade.
Still don't get the issue?? He's a 1st/2nd grade player - playing 2nd grade?
As mentioned I'd understand if a perm 1st grader was named like Penca.
I think you're reading into this a bit to much haha.
