Who cares about the tennis - It’s a one way street. Pretty boring. On the opposite end of the spectrum, what a race to the finish line the 2019 Rugby season has set up to be.
The battle for the wooden spoon is intensifying, I’m tipping Terrace to claim honours. TSS and Ippy await them - yikes!
And yes, what a spectacle this weekend will be at Miskin Street. IS THIS THE YEAR?!
Old Boys’ Day and the word is spreading that a win this weekend will put one hand on the trophy. Numbers will be large, good luck finding a park.
Final team listings will be interesting with some great match-ups potentially.
Back to the rugby. I can’t wait for the TSS v BBC matchup this weekend and I’m tipping a boil over, particularly after TSS are coming in off an easy run and BBC back on Miskin after a good hit out with Ippy. BBC for the premiership!
I predict there will be predictions and I am hearing that things are being heardGO tell us your predictions for the rest of the season. Always good insight.
All of Nudgee will be cheering for BBC this weekend. Nudgee have a rest then a warm up v BGS and then battle BBC on Ross oval. Could well be a 3 team premiership.
I will say this for this BBC Team - which is quite a bit different to BBC Teams of years past
A number of these boys that have been here for some time have won Club Premierships ( Rugby and League ) , undefeated and/or Top of the Table School Seasons and been part of undefeated State Championship winning teams and dominant QLD Teams coming through their on their journey
This core I refer to are used to winning and more importantly have made significant contributions to what and where they have won - and they expect to win in their mentality. They aren't phased by the pressure.
If they don't win I guarantee it won't be because of the foreign feeling of not knowing how.
Mental toughness will play a large part on Saturday at Miskin. If BBC can put away their impetuous nature for a half, then I believe (predict) they will finish the stronger.
If they play the compose game build the scoreboard pressure and defend like the demon, they will be in with the shot at the title. Pressure arrive when you look at the score at half time and you cannot imagine how to play the second half and your coach is sounding like the panic one.
Hope this isn't the case but I like the look of TSS props in open v BBC D.
My tips for Week 6
BBC in a close game
GT (first win)
I don’t think BGS have the ability to smack them in the mouth early like Churchie did , however , BGS set piece is far superior to GT so you never know. When the set piece is getting owned better be prepared for a heavy day of defense and winning the ball back on the ground - where GT have also been poor this seasonHave you watch them play Taipan? They have to be the biggest disappointment of the year. They have some quality kids and coaches but it all isn't working. Maybe the decision to let kids play for QLD is backfiring, as a few of those kids are playing 2nd XV. They should have BGS covered in the battle of the Hill, but I thought they'd have ACGS covered too.
