Norths were a huge step up today after their dissapointing effort against Brothers last week. They simply bashed Bond out of the game, scrum was good, lineout was good, defence was outstanding esp 6. Bond to be honest were average, maybe they thought like Sports Bet that they were a sure thing, paying $1.02. Final score was about 35-21 with Bond scoring late. The 12, the whole front row, no 6 and no 9 all had outstanding games for Norths. Bond average across the board and would be very dissapointed with their effort.

We will get a good indication of Wests 2016 chances with this matchup with the Tigers who on last week's effort are bound for mid table at best.
Very perceptive prediction there Bulldog.
Smith is a class player.
Easts will struggle this year, they seem to lack cohesion.

Uni were in front 19-3 at half time. Bros then fought back with two late tries.
The Students are very tough to beat at home. But Brothers did win premier colts.

Congratulations to your boys, SX & Bulldog.

Yes Pauly on yesterday's effort the Tigers are in for a tough year but looking at their backline I think Hagan was the only one who played Prems in 2015, and their forwards looked down on 2015 also. Where was Brandon, White, Gordon?

Just on the Reds for one minute - why did they take Ready off with 2 minutes to play? Mafi's lineout throwing is not renowned and he stuffs that throw and invites the Blues down town. Why the Reds let Hanson go is beyond me - Chibba Hanson will be in the Wallaby 23 by year end.

Watched the students play the Filth on Saturday and really enjoyed it. Haven't watched a Premeir grade game for a while and it was great to be so close to the action. Some good young talent for the students but they seemed to come in and out of the match, Uni backrow was very good when it was required.

What's the rule re throwing punches in Premier grade? I thought it was meant to be an automatic red card but the Wests#16 on Saturday was only (thankfully) given a yellow.

Reg the gist of my comment was more around Mafi - a Bros premier grade player - not being up to Super Rugby at this stage of his development.


well it seemed like a comment on the REDS game and a decision made by the REDS coaches on a REDS player.

Premier grade is the only grade where punching and stomping are not automatic red cards. It's up to the officials discretion as to the severity of punishment.

Easts will have Matt Gordon back in a few weeks. That should strengthen the backline. But the Tigs will miss Mullins, Brandon & Ready. Mind you Mack Mason will be a handy addition in the latter part of the season.

Are Easts capable of making the finals?
Tigers Tale told us ad nauseam about how Easts are perennial underdogs and should never be written off. Even though TT was clueless 90% of the time, especially about Brothers, there certainly is some merit in the above statement.

Bulldog - how'd your scrum go on the weekend? There was a lot of contention about who won the scrum battle last year between the respective clubs.

Was waiting to hear when the announcement made, I agree 2 years is not much time, but all in all how much time do we need?? I think it good actually gives next year to do serious recruiting , too long I doubt we would hold players!
