Not looking promising for the rest of the season, feel so sorry for all of the boys
I imagine it’ll be like every other year.
They’ll carefully study hours of video and form and statistics..
then pick 60% GPS, 30% CAS, 9% ‘other’, plus a token lad from CHS to make it look like there’s a process.
Snort I am guessing, and can't confirm sorry, but I wouldn't be surprised if they were Tane Edmed, Trinity, and Grant Lodge, Cranbrook.OK, so someone at Barker came through with the 2020 scores, which is really helpful.
Confirms my suspicion that Mitch Wheals may have set a new CAS record: he scored 30 points (two tries, 10 goals) against St Aloysius, which is the most by an individual in a match that I have found so far. I should qualify this by saying that I have about ten years to go, and those years include Ryan Cross who, I suspect, set all sorts of records. Anyway, two players (one from Trinity, one from Cranbrook) scored 29 points in a match, and I'll fall off my chair if anyone can name both of them.

Maybe some old boys from these schools could help.
WLF, well done - nailed Grant Lodge. The other was a Trinity winger named Graham Rolleston back in 1961. Lodge and Rolleston each scored four tries, so if you adjusted their efforts for contemporary scoring, Rolleston would have scored 37 points and Lodge 33. Unfortunately St Aloysius was on the receiving end on each occasion.
I'll finish these records once lockdown ends and I can get to the State library. The years I'm missing include Ryan Cross' time in the Waverley 1st XV, and from memory he scored enormous numbers of tries, so I expect there are a few records lurking there.
Snort, how funny, Grant is a mate of mine, it was a guess but he was a terrific player.
I have asked my footy contacts at Waverley the question about Ryan.
Will let you know, cheers!
P.S.Ryan could also play a bit, a long with cricket.
