BGS are a absolute joke. Since 2012 they have been the laughing stocks of the comp. BGS are clinging onto their victory in 2012 to hide behind. They will lose every game this year I am calling it now. They would easily come last in AIC. So they have zero chance in GPS.
They need to have a complete culture change.
I 100% agree. Whilst the primary goal of a school is academics, the GPS is primarily a sporting institution. You need to be in the GPS to be considered the best at sport, but you don't need to be in the GPS to be the best at academics.
Their basketball program is an absolute joke as well, they are an easy beat for every single team for years now. For reference, last year they lost to IGS (second last on the ladder) 107-45. For those who don't know basketball, a win margin of this size in unheard of (unless you're playing BGS). BGS season was headlined by a 164 - 44 loss against Churchie (the largest losing margin in GPS history). A regular Joe-blow state school would beat their First V basketball program.
I think BGS really need to pull their finger out sporting wise, they're doing a disservice starving their students from being able to go and watch the First XV on the weekend, and them actually being competitive, or having a chance to win. It will never happen, but my vote is that the bottom school in rugby gets dropped out each year, and the top from the AIC comes in. Whilst there is still a huge gap between GPS and AIC, we'd at least see some more competitive games.
But hey, BGS could make the same case against other schools for their academics. Including Nudgee (who's OP results weren't even in the top 100 in the State in 2019)
