i believe its fair to say Scots are frontrunners at the moment and has been the only team as of yet to string together consecutive performances that demonstrate premiership potential. First game against Newington was an eye opener for the potential of what Scots are capable of putting together when they are fully polished. the amount of opportunities created by the blue and gold demonstrate they have the skillset to score from Mauls, scrum set piece, and in general play, had these been executed the scoreline would have been very different. Of course one could argue the same for Newington but I think its safe to say Scots had more opportunities created, just couldn't execute on the day.

Their second trial against barker was a cracker of a game to watch. Barker were the favourites leading up to the game however Scots seemed to have the upper hand for the majority of the game. they saw improvements in execution as well as discipline, as well as a much greater defensive performance. They played smart field position when needed, and had a pretty sizeable barker pack on the ropes often at scrum time. Scots forwards pack seem to be the most dominant pack in the competition from what we know so far, however it is still early days. The backline looks to have seen frequent changes amongst 10,12 and 13, possibly some injuries or just a case of rest. a combination of the dominance that Scots provide at set piece paired with the flair and skills in the backs pose a seriously challenging threat for the rest of the GPS.

another dominant win on Saturday against Stannies saw their ability to put up a big scoreline against a competent country side, however i didn't watch the game so I cant comment on anything other than the score. the second XV look to be filled with lots of depth and young talent with the likes of Fittler and co. Overall Scots look to be the team to beat at the moment, very intrigued for the upcoming fixtures against Kings and Joeys, should be a spectacle of GPS schoolboy rugby.

Let me know any of your thoughts!

TIPPING ROUND 2.
Please message me (preferred) your tips as I am able to have an easily accessible record for them.
Tips will be made public on Saturday 21 May for all to see.

Good luck.

This round will be tricky as there are no real certainties. (Maybe Newington but Waverley seem to lift)

Match of the round? Scots v Kings being played at the Death Star.

BTW. The tipping competition is closed.


All those who are regular AAGPS thread contributors and lurkers were given time to enter last week.
Those who are not on my list and send me tips will be ignored. I cannot keep adding people and those who wish to be a nuisance.


Here are this weeks games. Team on the left in each pair is the home team.

Knox play Joeys 3s according to AAGPS so assume it’s Knox 2s
I will be able to confirm all matches later this week.
These inter association matches strive to match teams up of equal ability.
This does not always work when a schools' A team is way better than another schools C/D or E team.
This is all hit and miss,.
Not many schools can match all grades with one another.

I heard that it was some of the Firsts as well, I hope Stannies catches them and sends them to Cranbrook ...............
The best way to approach this matter, is for Scots to cancel all sporting contacts, with Stannies indefinitely. If Stannies run out of schools to play, they will get the message. Additionally, if other schools are aware of Stannies Boys behaviour they think twice about adding them to their fixture list.

Lets wait to hear the full story. Sounds terrible. Maybe locks on change rooms will help. I know some schools have a staff member on watch outside the visitors rooms just in case. All it takes is a couple of rotten kids to ruin a relationship. Stannies will be making enquiries.

Tip of the Week for those heading to Riverview this season.

If your ever thinking of sitting in the Visitor's Pavilion (known as the Old Pavilion) behind the First Fields try line and its been raining prior to OR on the day, pack yourself some sturdy gum boots.

Right the way around the structure was a continuous deep mud bowl. Teams were leaving the change rooms (I was sitting there from noon) trying to stay upright to access the field below. Trudging thru all the mud back up to the road was an effort. You couldn't get around it.

Surely the school is well cashed up to install some 'weather proof' concrete stairs or staggered concrete walkway linking it to the access road above as well as a similar safe passage from the Pavilion to the First Field below (any boy could of rolled an ankle).

Come on View....its time to 'spread the wealth'.



Predicted 2022 last home game....heading from the 'Old Pav' up to the roadway.

Love that old grandstand. Sat there decades ago watching View win the 1980 rugby premiership when they beat Joeys 15-3. Rained heavily from the Thursday before the match. Six games were played on the No. 1 field prior to the first grade fixture so that the surface was a quagmire well before the main game started. NO tries were scored that game. Penalties? 17-4 View.
