NSW AAGPS 2020

I was also informed that view 4ths beat view 3rds in internal trials early in the season.
Both teams have been fluid, I don’t think that would happen now. View 3rds have a few boys who have played some 1st this year at some stage and for some misadventure or injury have landed there.

Apparently there is 4 U16 players in the thirds tomorrow. All of which I’m told played Gen Blue U15s last year. A pity the school doesn’t have them play U16s if they are not in 1st or 2nds. Would make a great 16As game.

3rd XV Competition - Round 6

With three rounds to play (including the deferred Round 3), Grammar and Joeys remain undefeated.

Last week's results:

Joeys 76 d Shore 0
Riverview 26 d High 20
Scots 17 d Kings 12
Grammar had a bye

This week's games:

Scots v Shore @ Bellevue Hill
Grammar v Riverview @ Rushcutters Bay
Newington v Kings @ Stanmore
Joeys v High @ Hunters Hill

Scots should be too strong for Shore who offered very little resistance to Joeys last week.
Grammar & Riverview will be a great contest. I think Grammar will remain undefeated here but it will be close.
Newington come into the comp replacing TAS. The match against Kings is very hard to pick and could go either way.
Joeys are coming off a big win, but High tested Riverview last week and will be coming to Hunters Hill to do the same again. Nevertheless I am expecting Joeys to remain undefeated. I will be watching this one at 12:00 noon on Clutch.

Cheers

Hi INP. it's not quite true to say Newington replaced TAS in the 3rds comp. TAS had to pull out because none of the Sydney schools would travel to Armidale. TAS was prepared to travel to Sydney for the away games so they were scheduled as "friendly" away games. Then when increased covid 19 restrictions prevented TAS travelling, Newington stepped in to take the vacant spots. They don't count for points, but its nice to see Newington back. I want the full thirds comp back! Having returned to Armidale I suddenly find myself bereft of GPS rugby. :(

This year's comp is Joeys V Grammar. That should be a real matchup. I have no idea how TAS would have gone. While there is a local comp I don't understand how it works nor have I seen any matches because of ground restriction, making TAS a blank slate. As a long term supporter of the minnows I want Grammar to win.

Via clutz TV I have partly seen Grammar play one match. I say partly because there were technical problems. I don't know when Grammar and Joey's are playing. I would live to watch it. Could someone provide a link prior to the event?

Agreed sentiments Joker. Congratulations to you and your son for the 15As. He's a big fella if he's the forward I am thinking of!

Hi Jim, Nice to hear from you. I apologise that I did not explain the full situation with regard to TAS playing in the competition this year. Indeed I was looking forward to TAS v Joeys at Hunters Hill in round 7 even though it would have been a "friendly" fixture as you note.

The Grammar v Joeys game was originally supposed to be Round 3 of the competition but was deferred due to the initial cancellation of AAGPS sport, and when they restarted the games, the round was deferred to 16 September. However it has moved again to 23 September - the Wednesday after the final scheduled round. (I think this is also because the Combined GPS games have been cancelled.)

In any case I am certain that Joker will be distributing the links for the rescheduled games.

Keep well in Beautiful Armidale.

Regards
INP

Is it just me, or does it sound like there plenty of View boys in the stand?
My boy was bused out 10 minutes after his game.
"Sounds" like View are allowing lads to hang around.

I hope that's not the case Joker, but don't know. Our boys were straight back in their boarding houses after their matches.

Some talk about 16s boys playing 3s, has the GPS changed the rules, I thought it used to be that boys could only play up in the 1sts and 2nds?
