I’m not quite sure how you can say ojs defence is better than perkins when it is one of ojs biggest liabilities and Perkins strength. This just shows how deluded some joe boys areFowler should of been in 1s for me Oscar Jorgenson as well had done more than enough to play GPS 1s Archie Campbell on the reserves is too low for him as well
Oscar would 100% be better than Perkins no disrespect to him but offers more in defence and attack as there is more to rugby than pure speed that Perkins offers
I just feel Jorgenson is a better fit when you already have a speedster on one wing, just brings a new dynamic to the team with a bigger winger and good ball carrying abilityI’m not quite sure how you can say ojs defence is better than perkins when it is one of ojs biggest liabilities and Perkins strength.

Yellow card was for questioning the ref’s decision. 15 thought he had won a pilfer - referee didn’t agree. 15 questioned ref - ref made it clear who was in charge.Was at Northbridge to watch Shore v Joeys. Joeys outclassed Shore in both backs and forwards. The Joeys forwards set the platform for their backs with physical carries and quick ball. Joeys backs were strong and fast and made metres easily and scored some classy tries. Standout players for me were Joeys (13) with his physical defence and big ball running, I’m tipping him for GPS 1s. Joeys (4) and (7) were in everything as well in attack and defence. Joeys (10) had a great kicking game and put in a excellent kick for joeys first try and as usual Joeys (15) had a great all round game, however does anyone know why he was sent off early in the match?
Happy to do it for Scots. Team results are usually published for scots sometime on Monday or TuesdayHere is a proposal
Due to previously expressed interest in lower age teams' performance, why don't we publish a comp table for 13As & Bs, 14As & Bs, 15As & Bs and 16As & Bs, beginning with this 1st round? What say you?
A good friend is very happy to put it together for us. This then will be shared right here,
What is needed for this to work is a "champion" from every school (do we include High and Grammar?) who can send me the results for the weekends game.
The sad fact is that newsletters with weekend results are not public information anymore at most GPS schools websites. Joeys still has public access to results last time I checked. Any others?
If you would like to nominate yourself to reliably report the results each (comp) week from your school, please let me know.
What are your thoughts?
NOTE: Doing it for any grades lower than As & Bs might be a bit pointless due to not all schools fielding teams consistently.
Heard today the “nicotine ninths” had a strong win over Shore 7ths I expect big things from this “social team” also heard there are some impressive players on this team that could of pushed for spots in 3rds and 4ths but chose to play with their mates for last year of school footyYou’ll never smoke alone
Congratulations to "All things footy" who correctly picked the back line excluding #9 . Maybe not in order but close enough.GPS 1’s GPS 2’s GPS 3’s
All based on personal opinion, no hate all the players in the GPS are playing great and whoever gets picked, the GPS will have a great team!

Hello secondrowerarespeedyNewington seemed to be getting flogged in the lower grades losing 64-0 in the 14as but the 1st XV was incredibly close with Newington coming out on top 28-27
