so can the boys in the nsw under18s academy still make aus schoolboys
The short answer - No.

It is picked exclusively from those who play in tournament at Knox.

This basically means that the best 23 (or around that) in Aus make Australia Under 18, then the next best 50 or so players make no national team, then those sitting around the 70-100 in Australia make Australia A and tour Japan.

Go figure!

This is what AUS has ro fix. Pathways for the next best 50 cause this is were the strength and depth of Aus rugby comes from. Who's to say all 23 "best"players stay with rugby and don't go to league ? Then your looking for the others and they may not be there. A plan, as previously suggested is to scholarship them off overseas ( NZ, SA, Europe ) for 2-3 years. Play and get coached by good quality people, study and then hopefully come back and fill in the spots thst could be available for senior AUS teams.
Can't afford to lose them.

Sorry for my ignorance. Can someone explain how it works? The players in Gen Blue NSWRU U18 boys are considered the best players but they don't play in the Australian Schools Rugby Championship? Instead they play the Reds Academy etc. Is it from this group that the Australian U18 are selected? Then if you're good enough to make Gen Blue - but not good enough to make Australia - you cannot play for Australia. But if you are not good enough to make Gen Blue but make NSW I or NSW II you can then be selected in Aus Schoolboys? Then is Aus Schoolboys lower than Australian U18.
Also are NSW I and NSW II selected on merit (IE is NSW I considered a better team than NSW II)

I believe that there is no longer "Australian Schools" - it has been amalgamated with U18 and called "Australian Schools and U18".

The pathway system is confusing, more like a garden path. The Riverview tournament has been devalued by precluding those boys still at school, but selected in Gen Blue. So the NSW1 and NSW2 Schools teams have no Gen Blue players.

And yes, NSW1 is selected ahead of NSW2, meaning they theoretically have the better players. Doesn't always work, of course. NSW2 can and do beat NSW1 occasionally.

Hi All

Just because it's a cracking day and I like reminiscing,

Had another look at the last 4 mins of Scots v New. Scots leading 27-21 way on Cluch.

Off the kick off, New played a perfect ( hence scoring under the posts and converting ) game. Patience and determined running was the key. From 69.33, from the New line out, there was 10 phases before the try. on phase 6 New spread it and took the right option to not overplay their hand and come back towards the posts. Memories of the 21 phases it took to beat View on the bell at Stanmore a few years back.
This New team has IT. They just need to play smart. Well done boys.
Back to the hand cream.
