ACT 22-5 over NSW JRU. Go the brumbies.
Approx half the boys in the team today are from the u18’s Brumbies squad which played a trial against Melb Rebels last Saturday in Canberra and the previous week against the Western Force. Both were very brutal physical games.Last game NSW 1 22 - 7 over Qld II.
My son reports that ACT looked the most impressive today - I wonder if that is the Brumbies academy team or a 2nd XV as NSW has done.
Yes and Latham is at South Coogee (Randwicks ground). Not a huge fan of synthetic fields, mind you technology is getting better, but they are terrific when the weather is poor, as per current, otherwise there would be 0 games played.There aren't many but there is a multi purpose field at Blackman Park in Lane Cove where rugby is sometimes played and Randwick has 1 synthetic field at Latham.
my take on this (and it may be wrong) is that it dawned on Rugby Australia and its associated state junior rugby unions that it was patently unfair on kids who had left school, yet were in the same age demographic as current school kids, who missed out on selection in the prestigious Australian Schoolboys teams of yesterday (with the associated perks - touring, prestige etc). Also World Rugby changed from U19 and U21 global competitions to just U20 in 2008. So kids playing club rugby who could previously have qualified for U19 now had to compete with kids a year older.is it just me or is the national schools carnival a lot less interesting now that the best school players are not available as they are on Gen Blue duties. I assume it is the same for other states. The pathways have become complex, I imagine a lot of money is wasted in duplication and the whole thing feels a bit odd. Can anyone explain how the delineation between NSW schools and Gen Blue came about and what the rationale is?
