Need to check this but I think New 14Bs are playing Kings Cs, and Kings 14Bs are playing Knox.TABLE CLARIFICATION
Eyes and ears has sent me this message.
"Your tables are going to be thrown into chaos this week as I believe Riverview 16As are playing Grammar 16As."
as the saying goes, we can only play what's in front of us!
If Shore choose not to put their 16As up against Riverview, then by definition they forfeit and View gets the 2 points - simple.
No chaos, but a huge disappointment for Shore rugby, I would have thought.
It would be strange since Joeys only beat Shore 40-31 and Kings lost 15-17 to Riverview in R1, then Kings only beat Shore 17-5 in R2.
So it's not like Shore are getting flogged and would not be up for the View game - they're competitive.
Please note that for the purposes of this competition, only the top two divisions of each age group from Opens to U13 of the "official" 6 schools are considered. If a school chooses not to put their As or Bs up against the corresponding teams from the other school, for whatever reason, then that team will be considered to have "forfeited", and the opposing team will be awarded a "bye" and 2 competition points.
There is no shame or blame attached to this action, and teams that choose to play down often do so for good reason to do with player welfare when there is a perceived mismatch or safety issue.
Incidentally, there may be confusion as to which team forfeited if, say, View 16Bs play Grammar 16As and Shore 16Bs play some other mob.
Who pulled out - did they both forfeit? If it can't be established who pulled out first then it will be deemed that the away team is the forfeit.
We depend on the honesty and goodwill of our forum score reporters to help us sort this s#@t out if it happens!
