Cockatoo Run

Half time in 1sts
Joeys 26 - Knox 15
Joeys making do with only 25% possession. Knox with all the size and territory. Joeys backs the difference.

FT

28/14 to Barker.

Very scrappy game from both. View hung in with a much bigger team.

Great length the field try from Barker and an intercept end up being the difference.

Anyone know some junior results?

First half Knox had all the territory and possession, but Joeys burnt them on turnovers. Pat Broe at fullback was sensational and scored a first half hat trick.

Second half saw a frenetic arm wrestle and Knox hung in as Joeys threatened to run away with it, and the turning point came when Pat Broe came off with what looked like a bad knee injury with Joeys up 33-15.

As the Joeys emptied the subs bench they lost all defensive shape, had no talk at the back, and got the defensive numbers all wrong especially on the right side defence where the Knox left winger was brilliant in the last 10 with long range tries.

Knox were rewarded for keeping at it, cutting mistakes, and making no subs in the final 20 to maintain cohesion despite being tired. Their 8 was fantastic, and the 7, 3, 11 and 15 played very well.

For Joeys, losing their captain Pat Young at half time and Pat Broe in the second half changed everything in relation to talk, go forward and confidence. Hwi Sharples was terrific but couldn’t do it on his own.

Set piece will need a lot of work and game smarts and exiting their own end is a big work in progress. Two games running they have suffered from making mass substitutions. In the end, they were outsmarted and out-disciplined in the final 15mins and it cost them dearly when they were in a dominant position.

Bit of an upset at St Josephs. However very promising signs for this seasons 10 rounds. Despite the loss, the 15 and 7 were very strong for joeys. I was also very impressed with young Jonty Fowler as a 16 year old playing his first game in the 1st XV. Very classy skills a mirror image to his older brother.

My original, rationale for Joeys having a really good season was based on their depth, considering such a long 10 game competitive season. Perhaps I was wrong? Not that this is a definitive opinion.

Opinions right…

I think it will be a factor through the season. During the comp season you’re far less likely to ever make mass subs like a trial and you’ll only do it when injury occurs ideally so subbing 1 guy into a team has far less impact.

My take is a bit different, Knox got out of jail through 2 individual brilliant tries from 11 (who is U16’s age and a real talent). They also benefited from a couple of absolute howlers from the ref that changed momentum late in the game., that’s the way it goes sometimes. Joeys never help themselves with all the subs they throw on in trials but that’s what these games are for. Knox have a strong forward pack that is probably a bit underdone on fitness and their backline functioned much better after the swapped 15 out. For Joeys, apart from strong games from Young, Broe and Sharples I think Fowler looked great at 10.

The Front Rower

Any news out of Scott’s from there senior teams?

Aslo a close eye should be kept on Bartlet the school has been planning his move from 12/13 to second row for years. Quite excited to hear how he goes and handles the physicality.
Scots 1st won 83-12 Stannies gave up. Best on ground for Scots Zac Fittler and Leo Jacquaes were awesome. Best in forwards Will Guifoyle and Finn Bartlett had some massive post contact meters.

Should read Stannies never gave up! they played right to the death and should win a few this season.

Well done in dragging all those scores together. Not easily done with the different associations in the mix.
