QLD GPS Rugby 2019

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.




At BBC. The players are there, the culture is there, the coaching is there, and clearly the hunger is there too.

As usual though, that also applies (in spades) to TSS and NC.

TSS look like a team with no weaknesses at all, but those Southport players will have done the math and know in a small corner in the back of their minds that they can drop a game and still win or share the 1st XV title providing Nudgee can do the job at home.

Perhaps a sliver of an advantage mentally,

TSS may also be getting tired. They don't get a real bye this year (round 9).

Player vs player (and I don't really like to mention names), its not a uneven match-up on paper.

The occasion and pressure might get to the BBC team this weekend.

They have to be in the right mental place, forget about everything else, and just focus on the game in front of them. Leave it all out on the field at Miskin this Saturday. Win, lose or draw.

Yes, I personally will be cheering for BBC v TSS this weekend, as will the old man and most of Nudgee. I'll even wear a Boater hat if this helps the boys in green, white and black get across the line for the win. They need to play the game of their lives but I think they can beat TSS.

More than happy to share the premiership with BBC, but if they then go on to beat Nudgee the following weekend on Ross Oval, then I'll tip my hat to them.

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.



And the mind game begin.

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.

So what you are saying essentially is, do the opposite of what the Wallbies did on the weekend.

TSS are ripe for the taking in my view. This is a massive opportunity for BBC to ambush TSS. If they win this game, the premiership is theirs. Fire up BBC!!

Wishful thinking there , how things have changed when a Nudgee boy is cheering for a BBC win in the hope of a shared premiership.

Wallaby was compost not compose.

At least the 15 will catch the ball.

BBC really firming in my head now. They must be very confident at home with so many hardened club player. Look at TSS line up and cannot recall any impressing at club level - bit of a bubble they live in down there on glitter parade.

Agreed - this team isn’t like BBC team’s of the past. That is, dare I say it. Previous teams played the season out in their heads before a game was played. This years team knows how to win as proven over various dominating performances of its core in club and rep and they expect to win.

All I ask is for a great game of rugby and the result not to determined by the whistle like the infamous Jayden Ngamanu “knock-on” in 2015 that cost BBC a try and potential conversion. This game was decided by an after the whistle penalty shot that heart-breakingly fell short. Another year of what could’ve been.

IS THIS THE YEAR?!

My tips for Week 6
BBC in a close game
BSHS
IGS
GT (first win)

Have 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.

Little message for the Doubletake commentators who I assume will cover the BBC vs TSS game. Love your work, but if you don't mind please don't talk over the Bagpipes for BBC this weekend as the players walk down to the field. It took away from the occasion last Saturday for me. Cheers guys and keep up the great work.

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 season

For GT , not needing to score 30 points in the second half would be nice.

Put the poor start against BSHS down to the hangover from having had NC the week earlier.

Don't know what happened last week

A little of topic. but do TSS supporters ever post on here? In 6 years I have rarely seen a soul from the coast here.

yes we do-but I live in Brisbane so don't get to many games.
I will be thereon Saturday-I have allowed 2 hours to find a park. My personal view is that TSS have better forwards-but BBC have better backs.

Catch a train to Taringa and walk down. Will save you a lot of time.
