I'm not sure why anyone gets a tremor when NZ boys are mentioned ....like there is some automatic better pot to piss in

Touring NZ Schoolboy teams over this way last year weren't all that matched up against the puny , lowly Aussie competition , and indeed , even touring AIC Teams have gone over in the last couple of years and been competitive ( awaiting on likely AIC Premiers for 2019 about to face Otago Boys High in the next day or two )

Anyway.......

Blue , Blue , Blue ...... I assume your lads will be quietly waiting on Ross come Round 8 ?

Big whoop .

Whilst Nudgee at Ross is to be respected it has no hold over these boys as they've never lost a game there as they have been coming through since U13. Composure won't be an issue. If anything the pressure is more on Nudgee to win against these guys at home

18 year olds ? Cool . There is a few in the BBC stable as well .

Just to add that fabulous BBC 15A team you mentioned also won the 16A's last year ( yes shared ) but effectively without their backline . That would say something quite obvious while the superficial spotlight is elsewhere directed. Two thirds of them were in Opens Rugby last year either starting or playing legit minutes so the whole thing about now being in Opens Rugby doesn't really apply

We have TSS at home ( Old Boys Day ) on August 24th and IGS and BSHS are also at home

You need to find another tree to bark up old mate ........maybe a Gum Tree at TSS in Round 1 , that if I were you , I would be more focused on in the initial instance ..........y'know seeing as though they have all those bad ass NZ boys and all

GT's Glen Vaihu and Pat Elekana both currently have a run with Colts 1 at Sunnybank, with Ed Hiley running around with Colts 2 at UQ.

Any other schoolboys warming up for the season ahead by running around in the Colts comp ?

It's not Otago BH you want to worry about, it's the Christchurch teams. Australian SBoys have not come within a bulls roar (closer last year) of the Kiwi teams over the last 6-7 years; so I welcome anyone from NZ to Australian schoolboys rugby. The only way to beat them is to become familiar with their play....and....well... beat them!

Partially agree Sage.

From what I have been exposed to and observed is that there is not much difference up until U15/16

But between 16 to 20 the gap becomes a canyon

I say this in all sincerity ( and as well meaning compliment ) school programs here that have excellence within them , as Nudgee have proven over time , would ( depending on who was who in the zoo in any given year ) fare well against the Top 5 to 8 nationally ranked teams

The perennials like St Kents , Hamilton Boys High , Christchurch Boys High

Anyone got news on early trial games, I know TSS played the other week.

My man at BGS tells me they have a game against a NZ team after their camp during the holidays

He also mentioned there look to be 1 or 2 new faces down at their preseason. Hopefully they can help a team that may dies not seem to have many 2018 players returning

Big weekend for the BBC boys
-Tom Banks MOM for Brumbies in win over Lions;
-Rhys Van Nyk MOM for Easts prem grade over Bond
-Carter Gordon 3 tries and MOM in Wests putting 70 on UQ

Why isnt RVN in Aussie under 20s?

And Isaac Henry getting 10 from 10 to round it off
Isaac was actually man of the match as awarded by the opposing team and announced after the game. Carter did play very well , impressed by his game management and defence, having Isaac outside would no doubt help.

For those of you who are interested there is a new series of The Season that started last week on Fox Sports

This latest series features last year’s Wellington Schools Champion , St Pats Silverstream - who ended up getting done by Napier Boys High in the Semi Finals of the Hurricanes Draw

TSS v New Plymouth 29 all draw. Combined TSS 2nds/16A team defeated NPBH 2nd by about six try's to nil. TSS appear to have very good depth. New 8 and I ( brothers I think) from NZ and another forward from Kebra Park add to the mix.

Looks like they might not have the luxury of a goal kicker of CP's ability.
