I remember most of the Terrace 1st XV showing up to support BBC vs NC in the early 90's (at Ross) during their last round bye. BBC were well out of the race, but if they won GT would have won the comp. The GT captain came out with the kicking tee for BBC at one close point in the game. Oh.yeh BBC lost, but only by 12.

1991. GT v NC drew in the penultimate game. GT had the bye last round so needed BBC to claim the premiership. They didn't and we didn't (undefeated runners up).

And it wasn't the skipper (Nick Stiles) who ran the kicking tee sand out. Twas me. The Nudgee lads started cheering "bring on the terrace sand boy". Was quite funny.

Yup. I remember clearly now. I played in the 3rd XV all that year. You were ripping it up on the openside in the 1sts and your 6-4 win at Tennyson was a great game with Flanagan scoring the winning try off a scrum. Good game.

v BBC? I may have played loose but was Tight Head Prop not openside. Fanning was the tryscorer off the scrum.

Ok...I am a little mixed up I guess. I remember the blonde haired GT flanker coming on with the sand at Ross. That was you?

I am a little confused here - NC won the premiership 1991 correct? - and GT and NC drew - GT must have lost a game or they would have been joint premiers. Who beat GT that year?

EDIT: - Ahhh GT drew another game??? With who?

A shame that GT and BGS won't be able to be viewed this weekend

GT with the class edge in the backs but I reckon BGS will get the edge on them upfront

Even if it is a draw - BGS would still finish over the top of GT this season ( noting that GT have TSS , IGS and Bye and in this scenario BGS's 2 x draws win over GT's 1 )

TGS with a convincing win over BSHS up on the Range

IGS in a canter over Churchie

BBC over TSS in a thriller

God bless you FairPlay. Very cool that you are still a passionate and committed Old Boy that talks fondly of his experience as a 3rds player and connectivity to the entire experience of being a schoolboy Rugby player albeit if it was another time and place

Good stories above re the Terrace lads and the Sand Boy and Terrace supporting BBC on Ross! That's what it's all about and I don't feel so bad now cheering for BBC this weekend v TSS!

I still think TSS are the top team this year and so BBC really need to play the game of their lives to beat them. If this happens, the BBC v Nudgee game on Ross will be reminiscent of the end of season Grammar Nudgee game on Ross where Grammar won the premiership.

Any views on the BBC set piece v TSS? This is the area I think BBC might find the most challenging.

Tipping sheet for this week is HERE

If Terrace don't win this week I'll be crying myself to sleep on Saturday night.

Terrace have averaged 28 points a game so far for their winless season, on the flip side Grammar rate at 7 points per game for their efforts - being kept to zip twice. Get the Kleenex ready Jets, I reckon the red and black will find a way to lose this one as well. TSS Defence will stifle the BBC backs, BSHS will struggle at altitude and ultimately get run down by TGS and Ippy will put a ton on the well partied Churchie ( it was only one win boys).

Absolutely zero chance Terrace will lose to Grammar. They are a very good side, almost beat Nudgee on Ross (an 80 minute game might have got them home as they were on the charge toward the end of the game), and have been strong against most sides so far.

Agree with you on all games. You might be right about Southport’s defense but the difference is more in the attack with Southport scoring an extra 3 tries a game. Southport’s wings and fullback have scored 14 tries to BBC’s 4 and the Centres are 9 tries to 4 in Southport’s favour
