CHS I were monsters compared to the ISA I's.The games on Tuesday are at Knox 1, Friday is at Curagul, Saturday and Sunday are at Knox 1.
Was anyone at the Opens trials today? In particular the CHS v ISA 1sts game?
ISA 1s 45v CHS 1s 20, Isa 2s 38 v CCC 38
But I agree, should forget about Origin this year and concentrate on the Union.The problem though Newbie is the $$$$ Involved in being selected in the State of Origin and yes agree he has to make his Decision as I don't think NSWSRU will say play and we will catch you later. His League Club will also be putting pressure onto him to play.
I agree with Sideline Eye's recount of the score.
I might have been distracted but my notes only show 1 missed PK by the CHS kicker (#12 Cook).
Sideline may be referring to a/several decision/s by CHS to kick for touch instead of taking a PK for goal. / snip /
A fitting final game to a great day of footy (under 16 and Opens) at Rat Park.
GPS Should Win well against CHS, What about Predictions as well for ISA v CAS, especially after ISAs Great Win over CHS ??That's correct. Thought for sure they would have taken one on offer in second half that was very doable, but went for touch instead.
Agree it was an entertaining game and a good afternoon overall.
Any predictions for nexV t week? CHS had a hard day in the office today, but GPS are always another step up. Based on the team selections I've seen, they won't disappoint.

CHS I were monsters compared to the ISA I's.
ISA I's ran ragged in backline. 7 tries 3 conversions to 4 tries 1 conversion.
While smaller the ISA forwards were not intimidated and "escaped" without being totally owned.
#7 CHS was a standout but the Hyena pack that was #6, #17 and #7 for ISA comprehensively outplayed their larger 6, 7, 8 opponents and set the platform for the victory.
The ISA (largly Augies) backs run like the wind, and completely bamboozeld the bigger CHS boys.
Arthur Currie #12 ISA who I have never seen before but have heard a lot about,and believe is a #8 (by trade), played a very mature game as #12 without any real evidence that he is a piggie. We should try to keep this boy in our game, as I understand that the Mungos are keen on him.
As you say, the ISA were dwarfed by the CHS pack.I thought pretty much the entire ISA pack played tremendously.But I don't think any ISA forwards comprehensively won their "head to head"
Had the ISA backline played behind the CHS piggies,it would have been a huge win IMO.
If the form hold up, it should be a good win against CAS.
