What an awesome competition we have this year, Some great rugby been played during the trials. BBC look really strong, Howarth looks unstoppable in the midfield. The forwards look big and agile the likes of Romano and the 6,7,8 look strong I hear the 6 is only 16 and has been a titan in defence a player that’s turning heads, big for his age,One to watch for the future.

I watched the State High Vs Nudgee U16 game last Saturday. A high quality game. State High was fielding a heavy set of forwards vs the fast backs of Nudgee..... a lot of talent across the field.

School rugby is cyclical in nature with a variety of headmasters and heads of sport having different views on the value of certain sports etc etc. The schools that prove successful in producing wallabies are the ones that provide consistent levels of development across the grades without a particular focus on the 1st XV. That stuff sort of looks after itself in most years and every now and then you get a special year.

Good post. Traditionally , it was the Clubs that took these young men's development further after School. You look at one of the most successful periods in Australian Rugby through the 90's culminating in the 99 world cup and you are hard pressed to see many GPS boys as part of that mix. Fletcher Dyson was a John Paul College student , David Giffin a Redeemer College student , Damian Smith - Clairvaux, Dan Crowley , Mark Connors and Brendan Cannon all Lauries boys , John Eales and Dan Herbert - Marist Ashgrove , Ben Tune went to St Pauls at Bald Hills , Sam Scott Young - Townsville Grammar, Matt Cockbain was Country NSW (Coffs) as was Chris Latham (Narrabri) and then of course you had Tim Horan,Brett Robinson and Garrick Morgan from Downlands. Totai Kefu from Coorparoo High.

I am sure there may be others but the only guys I can think of off the top of my head that were part of the core from that era who were GPS lads were David Wilson (BSHS/IGS) and Jason Little (TGS)

But their real development and consequent opportunities came out of kick ass strong Clubs - Souths and Brothers especially through the late 80's into the early to mid 90's

I Expect BBC will continue to improve and become more succinct as the weeks progress, leading up to TSS. They have suffered some minor setbacks with the loss of 3(Petit), 12(Harry MP (Moana Pasifika)) and 5(Milne). This is nowhere near as detrimental as the loss of the assumed starting ten during pre-season. David Meng is expected to return for the clash against Nudgee. He broke his hand during practice when reserve prop Angus Ward fell onto him, and a scuffle between teammates ensued. This created a divide within the team leading up to the trial game against Churchie. However it was reassured that BBC would remain the team to beat with their concise win over AGS, reaffirmed by the commanding win against Terrace. This week's game against Grammer is going to be an excellent display of BBC's true potential
