Gordon's 2nd grade colts prevailed in a nail biter: 25-24. Sydney Uni too strong in colts 1s and 3s but Gordon more competitive in both of those games than the score lines might suggest.
Yep heard the scores. Promising for our guys although the expectations are now higher after the last few seasons and they would be disappointed.
Club is very excited about these guys coming through especially a lot of local players which I think will have a longer lifespan as a grade player hopefully than some of the other clubs who recruit in from other areas.
Anyway back to Sydney Uni in first grade I don't think they have fully recovered yet from the franchises limiting only Waratah players to appearances in the Shute Shield. Each year over the last few seasons they seem to be starting off again with a very new team but still obviously are always near the top.
I do seem to notice Uni have a few interesting scenarios.
Reasonably high turnover of players who don't make professional rugby and don't want too take on the most demanding training schedule in grade rugby.
Not the absolute first choice of every schoolboy player now with the emergence of the other tertiary linked programs.
