What a game at Scots!

Best I had seen this season. Both teams belting the snot out of one another with no winner guaranteed even though the tipping ran heavily to the Joeys lads. A bumper crowd, an insane tunnel, some bloke without a shirt yelling something and both schools cheering very loudly. Great atmosphere and was well worth the illegal park made in the staff car park. (Good to know these old nooks and crannies)

From the onset both teams were like heavyweight boxers, not wanting to over commit and give the opposition an opening to exploit and hence kicking dominated for field position. #12 from Scots has the biggest kick I have seen this year and he played full back, switching with Fittler time to time. Joeys were having a hard time to make ground in the backs with the Joeys #13 well contained. Joeys eventually started to focus on the middle channel of the field and ground their way forward using the smaller forwards but staying low to the ground as much as possible so the Scots lads would wrap them up.. Fowler was very astute in his kicking, Joeys did score in the 32nd minute with a quick piece of thinking of the Joeys #7 who took a cheeky tap and dove over while the Scots lads were thinking of oranges. (For the record, he shook every hand before the game)

Second half was when both teams loosened their shoulders and really start to swing at one another. Scots unleashed "the beast" and #15 and #12 combined very well in the centres breaking tackles easily. Joeys in response released "the Kracken" and started to use the width and test the lateral movement of Scots. The smaller Joeys boys did everything they could to hang on. Joeys bravest was their #9 who must be considered the form halfback of the year. He tackled elephants, giants and kicked very well. Scots started to use their superior size and speed to wear Joeys down and the points soon came. Scots hit the lead with some excellent line out work (number 5 was incredible) and they converted their chances. Joeys at one stage lost 5 line outs against the throw as the "skylab" of Scots 5 was impossible to go over. The Joeys boys only try came from their one visit to the Scots 22m. It was brutal and had little style but the Joeys #1 only knows one way and he got the job done. The last 10 minutes were pulsating as Scots launched raid upon raid on the Joeys lads. They had all the ball. This was when the smaller cattle dogs started to shine. They were able to get to the breakdown quicker and they refused to let go of the ball like any good cattle dog would do, despite the size of the beast they brought down and those who were trying to smash them off the "carcass". Three penalties in a row hurt Scots as they had the ball in a scoring position with Joeys looking to go down but Scots couldn't get to the breakdown quick enough to support their mates and the ball was turned over. In the end two heavyweights still stood facing each other fittingly in the centre of the field.

Well done to both teams.
BBQ? Could do better but lovely service from a mum who's son I taught at Scots .
Nice to be welcomed again.

Finally, I had a very quick catch up with Subbie. Thanks for saying hello. Looking forward to next time.

No.12 Ollie Cummins did play well. His Dad will be half happy , ex Manly prop/coach Damien Cummins I believe and a proud Joeys old boy ????? I think ? Shame both Fittler and Cummins will be lost/return to NRL

After three games and a disappointing but deserving loss to Shore, Riverview seem to be playing a fair bit below the typical standard we've seen set in the past decade. Watching the game on clutch the sub-par service from View #9 put view behind the 8 ball early on, contributing to the ignatius forward pack losing the contact battle to the Shore. We rarely see a Shore side win a physicality battle but based off what I can see on the clutch Shore were able to march down field in a quick fashion. However, I will credit the Riverview kicking game from #15 relieved them from pressure throughout the match. It is with this vanilla brand of footy being played by Riverview I fear their results for the remainder of the season. Despite the atmosphere and spirit that is seen in the Joeys/View clash I question whether it will be enough to make the game a genuine contest. I sense that an inform strong Joeys side is going to dominate a disappointing/weak View side making the game at Leichhardt a one-sided affair.

It makes me think whether it's a culture change or whether the grade 12s have not been developed into a strong group.
After hearing the results of Shore's performance, would not be surprised if they did the same to Newington. Multiple reports suggest Shore 10 was outstanding, begs the question, should he have been picked for a GPS team.

View is disappointing, sounds like their backs have underperformed significantly . Sad to see such a previously strong rugby school struggle so much. Might be a long one against joeys this weekend.

I agree after watching the View vs Shore game on cluch, the #10 for Shore was outstanding. Continuously he was mounting pressure on the view side along with the Shore forward pack. After the #10's performance against View as well as Kings I do not understand how he did not make GPS selections. His performance was top class. If only there were further selections later in the year which he could push for.

I agree entirely LM. He was excellent around the park, giving great service and kicking excellently. He was always placing pressure on the entire View team, and definetly shows he should have been selected in a rep team. His drop goal was the moment of the match for me, slotting it from 40m out on the stroke of half time to take a handy lead into the break.

I don't think you could ever say Fittler has been lost to rugby, he was only ever a rugby tourist for educational purposes. Cummins is going to the Force.
 
Bit of new around Max Jorgenson, he is to start in the 2nd XV this weekend for joeys to ease his way back after his shoulder injury. Paul Kent also reported that he has been poached to league by the milk, the green machine (Canberra Raiders). I feel like this decision is a good one as he can be coached by one of rugby leagues greats sticky ricky and will give him a chance to show his abilty on the rugby league field.

This was brought up Saturday night. Apparently, the oval was 8m narrower than it normally is.
It was brought in because in a round prior to this weekend and boy was tackled and ended up landing on the walking path right near the very bottom end of the field closest to the temporary bridge. When you could still see the old marking it was clear it needed to be brought in on that side, not sure why it needed to be brought on the other side, where the away crowd sits.

Bit off topic here. Is there any talk about what the best players from this season are doing next year?. Would love to see some of these kids stay in the rugby union system rather than being poached by league.
Cheers, schoolboy specialist
this type of chat went down a stupid road. Start a new thread if you want to chat about that and just focus on this year's GPS comp here.

I think you have to ask Brian Smith why it was brought in on the other side and to what degree.

Hey everyone.

Still need a few more results and your feedback.

We are missing 9 results:
  • Shore v View - 15As, 15Bs, 14Bs
  • New v Kings - 15As, 15Bs, 14As, 14Bs, 13As, 13Bs
I understand one game was "cancelled" - whatever that means. We need to establish which team pulled out first so we can allocate "Bye" vs "Forfeit", otherwise it will be a 0-0 draw.

If you can help, please let us know asap.
