Sydney Grammar have decided to forgo attending games and issued this book as compulsory reading for all students

Kings have sensibly left the Headmasters suite be after all the money a former Headmaster spent on it.

Shore have revealed their new plans for the replacement to the recent grandstand. Fund raising wont be too hard.

Hi there WLF,

With 13 boys returning from 2020. It Should be a good game at Death Valley and from what I’m hearing on the platform at stanmore station the boys cannot wait.

Forecast for Saturday 24th April is fine with a top 21 degrees so hopefully it should be a good day rugby.

All the best to both teams and may the best team win.

Cheers

Hi L2S,

I think we can all sense the expectation level for this years footy, after last years events.
Clearly New should be better placed this year with a more experienced player roster, and you would expect they are definitely in the mix against all comers.

As you know the first few games, for all teams, can be a bit scratchy/rusty as teams aren't finalised and typically don't have it all together, but I am sure they are all buzzing to get going after a lot of preseason training.

There are some great matchups in other games, eg Joeys v Knox etc, hope supporters post scores and thoughts.

Yep, the weather is looking really good for all games, and the grounds are also in tip top shape.
I can smell the BBQ's already! How good!

Sounds like you will be there? Is B&W a potential spectator?

Good luck to all teams.

Cheers WLF.[/quote]

Hi WLF,

Unfortunately I wont be at Death Valley this weekend as I'll be interstate for work this week.
I'm hoping that Black & White and Quick Hands or yourself will at the ground to keep those of us who can't be in attendance updated.

Cheers L2Scrum

The Joeys First XV game (versus Knox Grammar) will kick off at Bankwest Stadium at 5:20pm as a curtain raiser to the NSW Waratahs match. There will be plenty of Joeys lads there (boarders being bused in) along with day boys.


Hope all the boys from HH are recovering well from their Brutal experience in the country and are ready for this weekend.
Looking forward to the updates from Bankwest Stadium.

Proud to say that Joeys this year will be fielding a 14th XV.
The big issue is finding opposition. This weekend they play View 11ths.

I heard St Joseph's have a new number 12 coming from Waverley College and is a member of the Sydney Roosters squad. Will he be lining up on Saturday at Bankwest? That would incredible to see him in action! Someone let me know... thanks!

don't think so H4L - Joeys No12 is Jonnie Chan from last year's 2nds, the younger brother of Nick Chan who was Joeys No12 a couple of years ago (and part of the Aussie Schoolboys who beat NZ)

You are spot on H4L,

He is a wonderful lad and yes ex Waverley from last year 2020, wants to board, can no longer board at Waverley, like his dad did but Dad not an old JB, know him well.
Johnny Chan will be the no.12 in the 1s no doubt, but this boy is only in year 11, and can really play, he was in the Waves in the 15as age group in 2019 which defeated Joeys at Joeys on no 1, so a great pick up by Joeys, BUT I might add, NOT a scholarship, luv it! (sort of!)

It's a real shame Joeys and View aren't playing the Waves this year in the 1s, pretty sure these games would have pulled some serious crowds!

AAGPS Posters,

Just having a look at the Trials draws and noticed that Kings have a hell of a draw in their first 4 games.
It reads Scots, Joeys, View, then Waves!

Good luck to the Kings boys!

Ace, will the Joeys v Knox game be televised on Cluch TV etc?

Does anyone know?

My last son (yr 12) is now in the opens and tells me that the new kid from Waverley is playing 10 for the 1st XV.
He has heard he is fitting in well.
Della (who I picked as 1st XV 10) is playing fly-half for the seconds with my boy.
The seconds play Knox at Knox then bus straight to Bankwest.
NO CLUCH I'm told.
