NSW AAGPS 2022

Gotta say that New is held together by 3-4 very good players and offered nothing else today, broken play attack only. If Knox didn’t keep kicking to the New winger who was best on ground then they would have won by 20. New No.1 was outstanding and 6 dominated they last 20 but Knox were clearly better. Knox 8 is outstanding and 12 the linchpin of the team.

Knox 12 was very strong against Joeys last week

PLEASE, NO MORE SINGLING OUT NEGATIVE ASPECTS OF PLAYERS.

As someone who spent all of the 2021 season on the sideline (and close to being thrown out) for such an offense, the mods do not like this at all.
The patience of the moderators is not infinite so please let this be the final word on the subject.
Be aware you may spend sometime in the sin-bin (or red carded) if you continue.

Unless I missed something, the final score in SJ v TAS was 8-5. Both teams had one unconverted try apiece, SJ had a penalty goal. SJ scored a run-away try in the first half, with the score 5-0 at half time. Then in the second half TAS scored a try via pick and drive but failed to convert. TAS was attacking at full time; the game could have gone either way. In terms of standard, I think SJ had the better backs requiring ferocious tackling by TAS to stop SJ break-outs. TAS had the better of it in the forwards. Its big pack gave SJ all sorts of trouble. Overall, I thought that the SJ skill levels were a little higher, something that may reflect more games. Over recent years, TAS's pre-season experience has been less, with the team picking up as the season progresses.

I may be wrong, but I suspect that this game has determined the thirds premiership. That's on the basis of a feeling that that the other sides may struggle to beat either SJ or TAS.

In the seconds, TAS seconds playing a much lower level SJ team, was outclassed, unable to match SJ skill levels. It's a question of depth plus training. After the first half I thought that SJ would totally run away with the game, including a yellow carded TAS player, but the second half was much more contested. I wondered whether the TAS head was reffing.She is an international ref. She was pretty tough on both teams.

Was that a full strength TAS side ?

I was told Stirling Munsie, Fred Kearney and I think Eugene Campbell were to be in Sydney over the weekend after gaining selection in the Under 18's NSW Country squad.

Ollie Cummins from Scot’s made an error today, no need to have a go at his character. He is a great kid who had a mind fart, we move on…. Opposition attacking where he comes from, not on. Not excusing what was said, however I don’t think bagging him on this forum is necessary at all….. grow up
Ollie has consistent brain farts ,that’s the problem

I was at the Joeys game. The tackle completely knocked the Joeys boy out. It was a 180 degrees spear tackle. It was the same grade as Karl Lawton two weeks ago in the NRL for Manly and he got 4 weeks. The GPS judiciary if their is such a thing needs to think very long and hard on this one as it could set dangerous precedents going forward. On a positive note both 1st XV and 2nds were great games to watch and allot of good talent. Joeys side Jorgos good and Darling at No8 went well Young Fittler super tackle. The Scots forwards have a good balance pack as to Joeys. The 2nds was an exciting game which Joeys lead and Scots had a great second half comeback thanks to no 11 young Bartlett who scored a solo try and setup a second and could have got a 2nd try himself. The Joeys 2nd were very well drilled and the backs attacked from all over the park. Lets hope these boys go onto biger and better things in the future. Should be a cracking GPS 2022 season cant wait.

News from Leichardt.

View 24, Marker 14 at halftime.

Rod Skellet tells me that Barker is missing at least 3 players that played Joeys. Hooper, Katoa and another forward. Segala who played 13 is playing 10. "Barker looks crap"

For those who have a paid subscription, game is on here. https://nswrugby.tv/
Just watched the replay of the game. It seemed to be an incredible game of high-intensity rugby (hence the scrappiness). After watching view play at the mud bath which is their 1st field a couple of weeks ago when I went to watch my son play they looked like they have got things together big time since then. If they can produce performances like that on a more consistent basis they are most definitely going to be GPS title contenders. Barker(who only seemed to be missing Katoa) were a bit shaky in the first half but got their act together in the 2nd and played some outstanding footy. It was a lot more entertaining than the Kings and Augs game that's for sure! Will probably go down as one of the games of the year.

Good memories. Who was there in 2010 when Joeys won the game and "adjusted" the fence?

Context.

In 2010 Kings had 8 Australian Schoolboys in their team. Joeys had 0. This game was to be the 250th for legendary conditioner Mr John Healy AM who had been a key ingredient in many premierships going back to 1981. No one gave Joeys a chance. The paper on Friday said Joeys were facing probably the biggest defeat to Kings in history. It was going to be ugly.

But....as is the Joeys way, it is not the size of the dog in the fight but the fight inside the cattle dog. Sparked by an incredible 60m solo try just before halftime (see video), Joeys fought back and with a late penalty 1 minute from time won 21-20.



The Joeys 1st XV (after shaking hands, tunneling and cheering the TKS team off) ran over to the eastern touchline. The crowd surged forward and the fence buckled under the pressure of 900+ boys. Everyone was ok, the fence was repaired but one palling went missing. It has since resurfaced inside a certain bar located at Hunters Hill. Check it out soon.

Yes,2010 New fielded one of our Strongest 1st XV ever and we too beat that very talented Kings XV. Some months later, I was talking to a Kings Teacher. Although, talented Rugby Players, they as a player group, were unpleasant lot to coach. Full of themselves and really arrogant. Whereas, the Joeys and Newington Boys, had their feet firmly planted on the ground. Maybe not as talented, but a better attitude. We won the premiership and I still remember how pleasant and humble our boys were.They weren't just great players, they were excellent young gentlemen.

Great teams beat teams of great individuals almost always.

3rd XV Round 1 Report

It was a great opening round for the 3rd XV competition with some very close games.

Riverview 8 def Scots 7
I watched this one and it was a great game. Scots led 7-5 with a few minutes to go and Riverview scored a penalty goal right on full time. Scots conceded too many penalties in the second half and would be disappointed to lose. A great result for Riverview.

Kings 25 d Grammar 16
A really strong win to Kings on JS White Oval over the defending premiers. Kings are a real prospect this year and it was an excellent opening win. Grammar have some capable players but they will need to lift if they are to retain the Col Windon shield this year.

Shore 57 def High 0
As predicted it was an easy win to Shore against the High 1st XV who have already lost to TAS 50-0 as well. It could be a long season for them, while Shore continue to demonstrate that they will be one of the main contenders this year.

Joeys 8 def TAS 5
In what could prove to be one of the pivotal games of the competition, Joeys scored a close win against TAS in Armidale. One try each with only a penalty from Joeys separating the two teams. While Joeys will be very pleased to come away from Armidale with a victory, TAS will no doubt cause trouble for the other sides in this competition.

Next Week Round 2
Shore v Riverview
Joeys v High
Kings v TAS
Grammar v Scots
