Don't you love it though...he oh so subtle

Tell you what - the fishing is not good - I am not liking the discipline I am seeing from the GreenWhiteBlack even on this forum - it just smells like their year in 2019, too good to miss out and then of course the flood gates might open.

Wrong bait - we are in hibernation

On the 18 Academy games ....there might be more opportunity for U17 players in the inside backs given I can’t see the Brumbies aligned Pasitoa lining up for Reds - and who knows if Gordon is upstream in U20’s

Could be an U18 centric pack and an U17 centric backline

Note : There is a proposed GPS team ( Brisbane ) picked after round 7 , squaring off against a AAGPS ( Sydney ) team as a curtain raiser to U18 Reds v U18 Tahs in September

12 Terrace boys I'm told as the Red and Black coaching resolution continues

Not sure about Grammar ( but I was told there was no support for it a week ago unless something has now changed ) , but elsewhere , only 1 player from inside a GPS First XV squad participating

No Nudgee . No IGS . No BSHS. No Churchie. No BBC ( in effect ) No TGS . No TSS.

Only Terrace - in any meaningful way

Watch out Red and Black faithful ......MCA are the only AIC School not participating in the Schoolboy pathway , and are in fact , your guests at the GPS Festival of Rugby at Tennyson on July 13th when they are due to face off with TSS

Director of Rugby position is up for grabs but the 1st XV coach is news. A few decent Level 3 coaches floating around looking for a change. I’ll give them the heads up.

Is is? I thought he was acting as Director of Sport to cover someone on leave.

Some out there believe when a person gets to a certain age they are not worth listening to and that they don’t know what they are talking about. I don’t think there was a lot of support from GT administration for the for the rugby program in general and definitely not the support required for a successful first XV program.

Tom is a good coach with great experience. Tom is the sort of guy that needs to know that his colleagues have his back. Not a great experience at BBC a few years ago. I thought he was travelling okay at GT other than the usual shit.

Thoughts on this Nomad?

How do you know ? I thought you claimed to be Nudgee aligned ?

I mean ....ultimately it does come down to results doesn’t it ?

Bottom line is , over the last few years , is that Terrace overrated their teams and their recruitment and then had the double whammy of not getting the best out of what they had . The faithful will say it is more of the latter - but it’s both in equal measures if you look at it critically

And it was pretty much the same way back when

Should TB have sole responsibility at GT for who came in ? Probably not . But the buck probably does stop with him with continued under performance in the results ledger. They probably didn’t really have a winner in his time there but finishes up the table could have been better

GT may be having trouble with their rugby program but their cricket program appears to be working. Poor Churchie last week. GT 1/350.
