Having attended the last 2 BGS matches :
1) IGS are much better than I thought-high skill level;
2) BBC not as good as I thought -lower skill level than last year;
3) BBC very fit-their front row was still going strong at 70 mins.BGS 1 and 3 blew out after half time;
4) BBC 15 A team red-hot-(is that Tuquiri's boy on left wing?=jet shoes).Their match against NC will be a beauty.
BGS showed how to stop Howath.ON BBC ball the BGS 8 and 6 went into defence on him.But gee he runs HARD.
Great moment after match as both teams came together in a circle=hats off to both coaches.
Had a chat to Totai Kefu-what a gentleman-he thought BGS were more enthusiastic.
IGS can win comp if lack of depth does not come back to haunt them.
Good comment. I think there is an expected lack of cohesion across all the teams to varying degrees. I imagine rugby camps and other bonding events were cancelled.
BGS did well to compete, but I doubt the BBC coaches will be too happy with that performance. I don't know how bad the wind was at Northgate but the goal kicking for BBC does not bode well. They need to sort that out asap. Fortunately they have a couple of weeks to work on it. BBC prop Romano was very good and should be pushing for further rep honors if he keeps it up. When the other prop Petite comes back that's going to be a pretty hand front row.
IGS do look like a confident, strong all-around team. Genuine contenders at this early stage and this weekends game against Nudgee could be the match of the round.
