Good to see Kinross having fixtures against GPS Schools, despite the lopsided score,exposure to the playing strengths of GPS schools will push the Kinross Rugby standard to a higher level. Last year they played Newington in a full Saturday fixture. Again, although well Beaten (NC38 beat KWS7) Kinross was competitive. Kinross is one school where rugby is growing, is the preferred school for enrolments in the central west (Apologies to Stannies) and at time of declining rugby numbers, is growing against this trend.Kings 2s beat Kinross - 59-5
Kings 1s beat Kinross - 55-12
Hence, the lesson is that Country Independent School Schools, should be selectively targeted as a source for increased Rugby Numbers. Unfortunately, I suspect the National Body is neither interested nor able to promote the game in these schools. An investment in schools such as Central Coast Grammar, Newcastle Grammar, Hunter Valley Grammar, The Illawarra Grammar School and other Rugby Playing Country Schools, could offset the decline in their Urban based counter parts.
