Thanks S&M, do you have any times and are they to played at New or Trinity, would be much appreciated.


Very sorry - I saw the soccer fixtures and assumed that the rugby ones hadn't been posted. Just read

"There will be no rugby on the last Saturday of the holidays (July 21st) against Trinity College.
Training will commence on the first day of term 3 with the first fixture back against St Joseph's College at Hunters Hill on July 28th."
Odd.

Not a problem,SM,as it was I thought choosing Trinity would be a poor choice, in terms of opposition for some of the New A Teams. 14As 91-0 win in the full trial some weeks ago teaches neither New or Trinity teams about Rugby. It would be more benefical to play Joeys, Kings or View in A team trials. Equally, these schools would find New a highly competitive opponents. Only, our improving 15As would be perceived as a very beatable side and even then, I would rule out a surprise upset against these strong sides.

Joeys are in Coffs Harbour on their annual training camp this week.
They take a squad of 40 players including the recent Schoolboy rep players
(poor buggers don't get much of a break)
They train but do not play any other schools. In the past they have had training runs against local colts teams.
While there they may try the legendary K'Pane Artisan Bakery. Best pies in town.

Is traditionally a very effective camp, if my memory serves me correctly, Joeys have recently got better results in the second 'half' of the season (post Coffs) than they have before it.

Happy to be corrected. Are you spying or enjoying the Village Bakery? We were there recently ourselves at "SALT".

Well done to the Shore Boys with two good wins against Cranbrook

Damn! Well done Shore.
A Cranbrook mate of mine who has a son in the 2nds said they were confident of getting a GPS scalp against Shore.
He said they would struggle in the 2nds but the 1st Xv coach was "kiwi cocky" ?? of a win. Think he was a teacher at Scots once.
Well done the Shoremen. Build from here and maybe, just maybe cause an upset or two.
Whatever recipe it was today, keep using it.

Looks like 2 solid wins.

Cranbrook have been very competitive in their trials. So good result.

Up The Guts, did you see the game? Any observations?

Savala didn't get much of a look in today

He seems very talented but a bit like strang, has good and not so good days

I'd suggest he might be a chance for final 6. at least in my estimation

Either him or the st augustines 10, Harry Wilson


Charlie is a wonderful footballer however I believe there are a few No 10''s are in front of him 2 of which are Minogue and Creagh . Charlie has a great forward pack in front of him paving the way, I don't see enough breaks from him ,kicks and setting up breaks good luck to him with the good team he has around him but I would like to see how he would perform with a less the forward pack he has had in front of him the last couple of years, having said that I think Edmed is a step up in class from them all including Donaldson and Harrison from last year

I didn’t get out to the game but I have heard that it was a pretty pleasing performance as Shore had a couple out including the fullback Dight who was injured in the warmup and they had to call on the 3s fullback to fill in. The 2s are a good side and that result would have been expected.

Shore have put been putting in some long shifts during the holidays, a bit of a training camp without going away like Joeys did. They should have a bit more confidence with that win, the good first half against Joeys and the near win over a good Trinity side.

Andrew Cleverly?
Was in charge of the Scots rugby program until Blackburn took over.
I think he coaches CAS 1sts. A good rugby brain and forwards coach.

keenas, I too watched Edmed and his was very very good. Not sure re your comparison v Harrison and Donaldson, I can only assume you mean nearly as good, certainly re running the footy, not as good, those boys were true running players who could not only kick but were prolific try scorers and try makers.

I don't really like to compare players, as this year is the one that counts, but colts next year really does sort them all out.
Let's just focus on this year school boy rugby for now.

I like Edmed as a 10 and as a good team player, however at this point in time I wouldn't agree his all round game is as good as Gordon, Donaldson or Harrison, but having said that I hope he continues to develop as a footballer.
