I think it is set in stone
BBC #13 - howarth best player in the GPS comp
BBC#7 - Hough is the best and most dynamic forward in the GPS for a second year in a row
What grade is Hough in? Quite an amazing player and a mate said he thought he is still only in year 11
I was sitting behind Dave Rennie and Matt Taylor ( wallabies defence coach ) at TSS yesterday Rennie said who are green 13 , Red 10 and green 8 ?
Taylor said “ they are all going to league “
Rennie said “ I gotta take a leak “
Well, I guess a few of them are really on loan from league when you think about it. Lol. I think Gordon clearly took the points in the battle of the tens today. Obviously helped to have a dominant pack, but jeez the out of hand kicking from BBC was on point.
If there is a Queensland team selected for this year, how do you think it would shape up at this point?
I am unapologetically a BBC fan but I reckon they could have half a dozen in the side. Romano, Gordon, Howarth, Hoff, Annan, probably favorites in their positions. A few others knocking on the door. Thoughts on potential rep selections at this point in the season?
I agree with you in that mason definitely took the points for fly half honours,Helped by a dominant forward pack. Same as Annan Howarth and Romano. Hoff is a great player and can break the line just needs an offload I reckon, a few times yesterday where if he took contact and offloaded there were opportunities.
I reckon a few more boys in that team will be knocking on higher honours selection. I believe both Harry and Dimitrius have been selected into the reds u16 elite camp.
Apart from those 2 I reckon the winger Honan? Will be pressing for higher honours as well. So going on This year alone with what we have seen what would be your Queensland school rep players be?
I haven't watched enough of the other schools to do a full 1-15 lineup. I am thinking there are only two things that can stop BBC this year, Nudgee College and Corona Virus.
I think BBC are the best team. Having said that I think Nudgee have the ability to do the following:
Their flyhalf has been perfect all season and is very under rated. I think he’s been the form flyhalf this season and so I think he can outplay Gordon;
Their centers have the ability to outplay the BBC centers both in attack and defense;
The Nudgee wings are probably stronger than the BBC wings;
The Nudgee front row will not be pushed around like the TSS front row.
If there is one team who will have the ability to pull apart BBC it is Nudgee.
Time will tell both teams continue to form their combinations. Last week you thought BBC defence a weakness, they just held TSS tryless which I imagine has not happened in a long time.
The BBC front row totally dominated as did their lineout, their loose forwards were also much stronger and great attacking weapons but backs need to better understand retaining and protecting ball in broken play without turning it over or giving penalties away.
BBC line speed was super fast on sat that could be an opportunity for NC but Drahm will have a different game plan I believe dominate through forwards I suspect. Also worth recalling TSS shredded your backs at will in last 15 mins so not sure why you rate them so highly.
It’s going to be a cracking game that’s for sure - you can never underestimate BLUE WHITE - especially in a GF.
