My tips today based on player changes for BBC in Xplorer and GT listed above are
TSS by 40
NC by 40
IGS by 10 - Mason Gordon and Jack Kelly on the bench. Maybe a tactical move
GT by 10 - David Vauhi at centre which is his preferred position

DV was at 12 v BSHS the big change this week is GV from 13 to 10
 
HT scores, BBC 22 IGS 14. Churchie 14 GT 0

A very impressive win by BBC. Their backs were by far superior over IGS. It’s the second week in a row I’ve seen Ipswich’s backline dominated. I think BBC are a realistic chance to beat TSS next week and if this happens they will almost certainly win the premiership (even if a loss to Nudgee).

Pasatoa had another cracker. A quieter performance by Nudgee but they need to keep something in the tank for BBC in two weeks. What a game this will be if BBC beat TSS.

I’m now a BBC supporter (even if just for a week)...

BBC left quite a few points on the field with their goal kicking though (8).

They eventually dominated in the forwards and backs as the IGS injury list might show.
IGS always looked dangerous with ball in hand though.

The BBC forwards,
without big boppers, ground the IGS pack down. BBC pack were pound for pound stronger, fitter, smarter and more aggressive.​

The backline outplayed IGS, drove them back at the gain line and showed superior tactical kicking. The speed at which BBC gets the ball to the outside is impressive. The 12 & 13 are dominating in attack and defense also.​

The squad have some great selection issues at the moment especially with two quality number 10s who can get the job done.​

Imagine having the luck to bring in quality rep players at this point to replace previously unbeaten players. Its usually the opposite for most teams, especially BBC in previous seasons.​

I am glad the IGS 10 is going to league. Plays like he belongs there.

Should be an great match next week with BBC vs TSS at Miskin.

If BBC don't beat TSS this Saturday, TSS won't lose a game this season.

I wouldn't be surprised to see some Nudgee supporters at BBC next Saturday.

I predicted BBC by 16 well it was 15 but they had 9 missed kickable points from 3 conversions and a penalty

Lots of tries missed by one out players trying to score and not sending wide

I prefer Mason Gordon at 10 in attack

But an impressive and skilful performance - a very fit side with huge depth on the bench - it’s a big ask to beat TSS on the weekend but if everything goes right for them you just never know.

I think they have to consider making room in the run on team for the former 10 for his goal kicking. Can't afford to miss those kicks.

Agreed - I though Claridge took in the line too often when he has two amazing centres out wide


He had a strong game though and they won. Both 10's have different styles and belong in the 1st XV, but you need to have a player that can kick points from inside the opposition 22, regardless of which position he plays, to beat TSS and NC.

let’s be honest it was an 8 point game until a try and conversion on the full time whistle.ipswich f’d up the last 15m when they missed scoring in prime field position.i would be passing on green white and black reacharounds .If they defend like that today against tss and nudgee they are still going to done up the blurt

Gross comment man. Read the posts. Nobody is saying they are favorites. And keep your mind on football rather than sex eh? It’s a schoolboy thread after all :)

Went to watch the 14A match at BBC - to see what all the fuss was about . Wow what a high quality exciting match . I thought BBC had it but an interception got IGS up 19-14
Good to see Lote Tuquiri and Brad Thorn there watching their boys for BBC .The IGS 8 was dominant.

Gee you were watching a different match . Were you at the ground ? BBC clearly dominated and bombed 3 tries in 1st xv minutes — and I am TSS supporter - so I like to think I am unbiased. BBC 12 and 13 are very good

I think Terry has a wee drinking problem or took a bad headknock back in the day!!

Yes not sure I get the above comments re IGS v BBC. It was a no contest. BBC’s backline were smarter, quicker, tougher and more in control. They were patient and had Ipswich’s measure.

I also agree with the comments re the IGS flyhalf. He’ll do well in rugby league but he’s being completely outclassed in the 1st XV games v players with rugby union pedigree. The BBC flyhalf read the game well and gave his outside backs the best opportunity to dominate the IGS outside backs.

Will be interesting to see how the BBC pack compete with TSS but I suspect TSS will be stronger there. I think they’ll win at least one of the games v Nudgee TSS.
