Out of interest...how valuable do people think these games are as selection trials?Think it’s around last play cas going for the 3 12-19
Do the selectors see these players so frequently at school and SJRU rep that they are no longer that relevant? If they are genuine selection trials (as opposed to matches that need to be won), then some aspects of the game are very odd. eg. Why take a conversion, when you could simply pass on the kick and get more game time. eg. Does kicking for touch and rolling a maul in for a try really tell a selector anything? Taking the 3 points at the end of the game, when you have outside backs who have only touched the ball a few times in the match??
