I think Knox have bigger issues. They have always had talent but their style of footy is rubbish and based on forward power alone. Most decent teams last year such as Barker just absorbed the pressure and waited for the knox forwards to tire.
Look at how many points they leaked in the second half of games, Barker and Newington being great examples.
They need a clean out of the rugby admin, it has been there for over 10 years for only 1 premiership, and that was on the back of Nick Frost's dominance. I still believe last years 1st XV deserved to do a lot better than they did in the end, a great group of players.

I believe Trinity are the dark horse for 2020. Lots of returning players in key positions as well as a few good individuals coming through from 2nds and 16A leaves them as a smoky for the coming season. Pending injuries as well as team bonds and connections, the boys in green could well cause a few upsets this year. A new director of rugby should shape up their playing style as well as the training for the Trinity boys. The upcoming players from 16As seem a bit weak going of their performances last year, but thats what happens when you can't field more than one team. One outside chance to make the 1st XV is Prop Jordan Stojceski who is said to be training the house down in pre-season. Overall, i can see this team going all the way in the right circumstances, however I can also envision them finishing 4/5th.

Predicted XV

1. Jackson (1st XV)
2. Alcock (16A)/Blades (2nd XV)
3. Hawkes (1st XV)
4. Buchanan (1st XV)
5. Eid (1st XV)
6. Foley (2nd XV)
7. Marshall (2nd XV/1st XV)
8. Mooney (2nd XV/1st XV)
9. Willoughby (1st XV)
10. Hannoford (16A/1st XV)
11. Taale (1st XV)
12. Roberts (16 A)
13. Meagher (1st XV)
14. Wilson/White (16 A)
15. Dennis (2nd XV)

Wonderful to hear RR, the idea and hope that all teams can win is super healthy for all comps, and gives all boys/parents/old boys etc something to believe in and come and support their school.
THE BIGGER THE CROWD THE BETTER, PARTICULARLY for the younger boys who attend, that is a real way combat soccer etc, and focus on the REAL GAME IN TOWN!
I agree there are some very good footy boys in your nominated team, who have some grunt, Trinity may well be the Dark Horse! I am sure my ol mate SNORT will be busting to ad comment.

This sounds really good by ASRU! Has anyone heard Peter Cosgrove speak before?

Agree Axe, should this go the right way, it may well be the initial tipping point where Rugby gets its act together, and understands part of the missing pieces, along with grass roots support!

Fingers crossed.

IPW, A few things on this lunch.

I went last year on a Waves table, this year we will probably grab 2 tables. (10 per table)
Sir Peter is a very passionate rugby fan, a Waves old boy, and he comes to our games whenever he can, I am sure some posters here may remember him coming over the last few years, and he addresses BOTH teams at half time!
That's the type of guy he is, and it wasn't lost on anyone.
He is, as he appears, very down-to-earth and approachable, and as you can imagine has many important and interesting truths and stories, so yes I highly recommend attendance.
Just being in the presence of a pretty special bloke is reason enough imo.
Last year several schools had good representation and many OPENS boys were in attendance, representing their schools as raffle ticket sellers for the tables, and to have a chat to the people on the tables.They all acquitted themselves very well.

The event is also a chance to help support our school boy rugby program, which has been hard hit by reduced investment over many years by the ARU. I am not having a shot at the ARU but their ability to support has dwindled for lots of known reasons.

If you are interested I highly recommend you attend, organize a table, it is a great day, and you can bet you will bump into someone unexpected!

Like most Old Waverlians Sir Peter is a genuine good guy, and a great credit to his Alma Mater.

I should also mention that to add a bit of spice to luncheon proceedings, Gordon Bray is a Knox parent.

Nice touch Peabody,

I would assume Gordon is aware of Peter's background and therefore attempts some banter, as I am sure Peter will return serve.

Barker vs Scots will be interesting. Any early tips for this game?

Are barker as strong as last year?

I believe scots will blowout Barker in the lower divisions, but the first xv will be a tough game.

Hey there mate, I believe scots are set to bolster their backline and attack this year (something i believed they lacked a bit last year). Hearing from some old boys that the forward pack will remain strong with the likes of Dylan Hansen, Darcy Clifton and Nick Wiggan (all key players last year) revising their spots in 1st for the new season. I think this will be a cracker game, keen to know more about Barker team comming into the 2020 trial season, they have always seemed to field some great 1st teams over the past years. Does anyone happen to know if this will be played at Scots or Barker?

Hey Guys,
Seen a lot of talk surrounding the Waverley, Barker, Knox squads etc.
Just wondering if anyone can have a crack at a potential Aloys, Cranbrook or Trinity squad?

Define proper. Overall the differences between the 1 and 2's across the schools are little. They play each other. Not quite getting the point.

As in a trophy?

On the CAS website it doesn’t have a page for 2nds trophy or the previous winners.

I think the Waverley love on here is a bit overrated, most of the boys played for the Randwick 16A's at club (won by
Lindfield) and for Randwick at state (won by Warringah) this year where they finished no where .

NSW 1's were easily beaten by QLD 1's at the JRC, and NSW 2's had a cricket score put on them by the QLD in the
pool game. Sadly Gen Blue selection is still a boys club.



You may have to update the team as both Miles and Matt Chapman have left Waverley
