Well Round 5 done and dusted !

Congrats to Churchie on getting their 1st win - notable game from the #9, Henry Wilson ,who really set the tone early - and get this ( according to Double Take ) 45 tackles after 4 rounds to lead his team defensively. Unbelievable effort from a #9 , however , and not to take anything away from the achievement - but Churchie have certainly had plenty of tackling opportunity. Good to see #6 , Aidan King amongst the action with some on ball pressure leading to turnovers and a smart try assist to #7 George Stoddart. For Terrace ......well , they still have Grammar coming up .......so they've got that going for them.

And speaking of Grammar sounds like a tough day for them down on the Coast. They've still got Terrace coming up .......so they've got that going for them.

BBC were very very good v Ipswich. Ball movement looks good and is creating plenty of scoring opportunities for a whole host of options. Ipswich really seemed to struggle with the width ( as they did last week when Nudgee stretched them down the stretch ) but undoubtedly have class in key positions. It is worth noting however they did play 20 minutes of the game without a player on the ground - one of whom is their best player ( #9 Kalani Thomas ) A bit of the prior chat in the last few posts on #10 Sam Walker is a bit unfair IMO. He more than showed his chops yesterday and absolutely kept Ipswich in the game ( with Thomas ) with key line breaks that led to points - even if BBC always seemed to just have the upper hand. One side comment I will make though - I think young guys that play Rugby and League do appreciate the 10 metre rule in League ( especially a play maker like Walker ) and don't always adjust as well in tighter , more cramped situations through the midfield. But good competitive game all round and just the ticket for the BBC lads heading into the toughest games in the run home.

Nudgee never really looked troubled against TGS but interestingly ( and ominously ) they found another gear at around the 50 minute mark and put on 20 something points in 7 or 8 minutes like it was nothing . I have noted a bit of negative chat in the early part of the season around #10, Reesjan Pasitoa , which by now is making it seem a bit silly. He be balling right now. Jock Thompson with another whale of a game in attack and defense and Mitch Lowrie putting a ton of pressure on the ball , and trapping guys behind the game line with Thompson. Great game by Nudgee - looking good - and exactly the follow up game they needed after putting Ipswich to the sword last week.

Bring on Grammar v Terrace at Grammar in Round 6

Hey that’s just me though.



That center combination is too on fire right now IMO at the moment to mess around with.

Goal kicking on Saturday might have been a case of the yips, but they really, need an inform sniper (not literally) next week vs TSS (who are looking unstoppable).

BBC will have good bench depth, and will "potentially" have a team with a chance to match TSS, whomever they pick to start.

Little lapses of concentration have cost BBC in defense this year.

Can't do that against TSS.

Can't see TSS "having a bad day" this year.

BBC players need to play a perfect game next Saturday to take down the Coastal Colossus this year.

In my humble opinion
Downlands 15 and IGS 9 are the 2 best players I have seen this year .I hope Reds have them

Couple of things from yesterday’s game st Toowong
1) surely the BBC 12 and 13 are the best in the comp - and certainly the best defensive pair
2) I thought the BBC line out was poor and TSS have the tallest/ best line out in the comp - and best scrum .
Better hold the ball !

BBC 14 - IGS 19 14A

5 wins from 5

Lets go IGS 14As

Well done, but even you'd have to admit that was a get out of jail free card. BBC were the better team, and the disallowed try in the corner off the lineout when the ref was unsighted would have pushed the score out to 19-12 to BBC with conversion to come. And it appears the naysayers on the BBC scrum were well off the mark. They contested the whole game, and although dismantled in an early scrum never took the easy option, and if anything were gaining the upper hand at the end. Congats to all boys who played, it was an engrossing battle and you did everyone associated with you proud.

FYI, I am not affiliated with either school and was impartial, knowing boys on both teams.

Even more 'impressive' when you consider they don't have a B team at all.

I wondered what the hell was going on when BSHS played 14 Bs and TSS 14 Cs. Same in under 15.
Surely that is not sustainable.
I see the IGS 15 A got pumped-but to be fair their 14 A team is very good.
Great match-like it should be- minimal licking -loads of running.Number 8s on both teams very impressive.

Meh

They’ll be done by U15/U16 and be mid table by Opens

Rinse and Repeat

Nothing new to see here . Move along


I'd be interested to read your take on BSHS 15A's. Are they in the rinse and repeat basket as well, or are they genuine contenders against NC and TSS come opens?

Don't have a B team ? GPS rugby, come back to term 2 where you belong, despite sharing the term with soccer, most AIC ( esp Ash Lauries ) lower teams always looking to play someone else instead of the same team 3 times a year. Rugbys mission should be numbers ( as well as ) quality.
 
Nudgee lost a game v TGS on the weekend ie the 14 Bs. A clean sheet otherwise. The 13Es managed to put on 53 points on the BBC Ds. It must be because of all the scholarship students who are 18 that I keep reading rather than the rugby culture..

It’s really disappointing to see that schools such as IGS, State High, Grammar etc place such a low value on rugby by fielding so few teams. Such a regressive situation.

So terribly sorry for all our shortcomings -we will try and improve and continue to make you look good.
In the interim can you help us:
1) NC has no /nil/zip under 15 tennis teams-every else has 4. Can you assist with culture:?
2) in 2016 Nudgee came stone motherless LAST in swimming-yet this year they won with a record score. That would be the improvement in coaching no doubt-please pass on your expertise.
How do we get on your level and still maintain your fantastic academic results?

^ Yep plenty would put their hand for some of NC's sporting wins , couldn't see anyone wanting to swap them academic achievements.

They were good against Nudgee 15a and definitely will continue to develop and threaten, pretty sure not many from BSHS catchment. Depth might be an issue in opens. But good team, quality players well coached I thought.

Well KFC its interesting. There are new Sherrifs in town on Merivale St who are great gets for the long term health of the State High program.​
And from what I hear changes are intended. Targets , Style and Structure need to change and if these guys go the distance it probably will. For the better.​
So yeah , over time , it will be interesting to check back on State High in 3 to 4 years​
