Really don’t see the fuss over IGS. Backs are lethal, yes. BBC forward pack will be too good and run over the IGS pack. BBC by 12



I am sure that will be the plan -starve their backs ala Wallabies.
Big call bringing in the injured 10 now recovered- when the young 10 they had was playing superbly.

Agreed. Although the new 10 is a very strong defensive player. Could be a smart move with IGS (Walker) and TSS coming up. Bowyer and Wald also back into the team for their first game of the season - retuning from injury.

IGS have the best back-line in the comp IMO. However, I predict they won’t get the amount of ball they need as BBC forwards will be too good for their counterparts. BBC by 8.

I reckon they know what they are doing - proof will be in the pudding plus Tierney back too - I think first half will be close but BBC fitness and ball speed will run away with it in the end BBC by 16

Yep -agreed. Ruru back as well for his first game of the season in the seconds. Will be interesting to see what pack is rolled out next week. Hopefully no injuries this weekend and BBC won’t be able to play the blame game.

Sorry everyone, work is getting in the way of managing the tipping comps, it's very rude of them.

The form for this week is HERE

I'll update the table this morning and post it too, always takes longer when I have a terrible round.

It’s a hard round to pick again. Two games you would put your house on and two games that despite all our friendly banter and opinions are very hard to decide. Any word on the GT front row issue? Churchie aren’t big or flashy but their set piece seems reliable.

That's right. ACGS have an average to above average scrum that has bested so called contenders whereas Terrace don't have one full stop. ACGS are more committed in defense and on the ground which is why I have them for the win despite reports of internal issues

I agree, but they also don't really have any really outstanding linebreakers (so far), in the forwards or the backs. Intriguing matchup.

Disagree. Their 8 is capable . And their 13 is capable . The Sword Brothers. I like their replacement 12 who busted Grammar open last week too ( yeah ok it was only Grammar ) but he was doing it in the 2nds and looks like he has had some transference of this capacity in Firsts. Good player.

Hate to bearer of bad news but both of the backs who you speak are not in the firsts along with a winger who has been dropped. There are some bad vibes coming out of Churchie at the moment. If anything could have been made worse Churchie somehow have managed it with the team they have for GT.

TBH ....I was a bit whateves on the 8 but the 13 was ripping it up through the trial season and I was expecting big things from him this season.

I wonder whether the I'm all out of love Air Supply situation you allude to co-incides with the previous Coach who recruited them from Corinda High not being there anymore ? Isn't he at State High now ?

But I am not surprised at suggestions of issues as I couldn't believe that Aaron Prosser was playing 2nds in R1 and what ? Sam Farrar was running at 15 ?

Yep BSHS now after leaving to a roll at Easts.
Don't really know but Churchie is getting slow ball from the inside backs. From memory the wingers only got the ball 4 times and I dont believe that was from backline movement. Look the forwards are doing a workman like job and can secure 50% of the ball. but that where it ends. No communication poor options and in their wisdom they drop other players instead of fixing the problem.

Yeah I understand the frustration. Scrum looks serviceable and on ball game is solid with Aidan King always being strong here , and I was surprised he didn't complete his transition to 7 this year and thought LDD may have completed the back row with Sword Senior and then the bloke that started the season as 2nds 12 - being your starter from the get go.

With a stable scrum and a committed on ball game with AK in a more natural position and the steadiness of Prosser and McGovern in the halves - then your centres - especially Sword Junior may have been able to function a bit better . I also note the internal wraps on your winger HC

Y'know when you really take a long hard look this team really shouldn't have been that far off the pace from last year's team. I don't know that I would have had them Top 4 but they were definitely capable of leading what was left of the rest

Good luck in sorting it out in the back half of the season and getting it together. There is player capability there.
