People in glass houses buddy .. the amount of bitter, ‘chips on their shoulders’ dripple going on over on the CAS forum atm .. Slagging off The GPS competition, posters accusing Joeys of pulling out of touring QLD because they “scared” to play Nudgee.. what a jokeLet this be a lesson to all parents. Monitor what your children do online.

Then you come over here and act all virtuous, pull the other one lol
what up and under posted is tame in comparison
Please ready my post again, if you are referring to my win & lost and post at no stage do I say they are better. Simply, that they are winning more than they are losing,regarding their A Teams. It is not a comparison between two particular schools. Rather, an overall summary of Newington's record for the games played in the GPS and I repeat only the A Teams. Results are there in Black & White, for every one to see, so please excuse my pun.Dont see how you can say newington have been better than Kings and Joeys. From 13-15s, newington didn’t beat either school once, and either won 0 or 1 game in 15A which was the last season before the strongest players moved up into opens for 16s, hence why they were stronger because they weren’t playing against the best from other schools.
Hello too little to late,Hi Black & White,
I’ve been a long time reader of the G&G and have really enjoyed your obvious passion for both the GPS and for Newington in particular.
I couldn’t agree more about the need for more boarders, it brings a great dynamic to the school to have boys from the country and creates terrific friendships both in and out of the boarding house.
I must disagree however on Newington not competing in the 3rd XV competition, it would be brilliant for the boys not in the senior squad, and give some definition about the season outside of the firsts and seconds. They might not be competitive in year one but over time I believe it will help raise all rugby at Newington.
Hello GoosestepHey mate, no stress,
I will say from an outsiders perspective, i always regarded newington as a strong sporting school, and relatives who went there who were all sporting mad .
Ill give it a crack, keep in mind I am a riverview old boy so don't know everyone but this is who I knosAnyone willing to predict a kings lineup ? Because I know I won’t be it’s to tough, boys who played 1s this year could even miss out.
Should be a good gameCommenting here, although it doesn't concern the GPS, I know everyone is missing rugby season and as such more than a few will be interested.
Barker VS Nudgee
To be played at Nudgee College on 10 September and streamed on Stan Sports.

Rugby n beers let me know if that is a good rough guess. They will defenitly be a good team.
Why doesn’t the the ISA and CAS combine then if it’s in the best interest of school rugby ? Still waiting on a response for that .. you guys are obsessed with the GPS, it lives in your head rent freeIt is perfectly valid to be frustrated at the GPS committee for ignoring what is best for the rugby community as a whole, purely because of "tradition." Are we not rugby fans?
Also did I not make clear that Joeys didn't hide or pull out of the contest? They were not invited. I wasn't the person speculating, hence I'm not the one you're mad at . I didn't make any hostile comments.
Also since when is it CAS vs GPS. Simmer down mate. Relax. Everyone is a footy fan here.

Move forward to what ? …How does that help Barker Knox and Waverley? They still smash all of the ISA schools (with the exception of Oakhill who is competitive sometimes and Augustines sometimes). However, everyone on the CAS forum is very happy to combine with the ISA in a tier system format in which the GPS, CAS and ISA compete together.
That is the only correct answer moving forward, and that can't happen until the GPS stop looking down on CAS and ISA schools. It is pretty easy to understand why we are frustrated with the GPS.
Don't apologise my friend. Your passion is well known and we all get a bit direct at times.Hello Goosestep
One of the issues being a passionate Old Boy on this site, is I tend to express myself in a direct manner. So please forgive for my lack of diplomacy. I also appreciate your comments on Newington's competitiveness as aGPS School.
