Well then, every GPS school has broken the rules somewhere a long the way. Everyone should be ashamed
Just a differing perspective, I was talking to the last Rugby Master at Newington one time and told me that in Ireland, the schoolboy Rugby is run by by the National Body. They set the rules, the matches and rules of eligibility. As such their focus is on producing the best outcome for Irish Rugby right up to the National Team. I wouldn't see this changing in the NSW GPS System as they would lose control of the game.
But from a management and leadership outlook it does make sense. Again, such a setup would be resisted over parochial interests, the killing of scared cows and a lost of status, indeed lost of jobs for some Rugby Masters and Coaches.
But if administered with tact, diplomacy and respect for tradition there could be something in it for the future of schoolboy at certain levels.
So I invite intelligent and rational discussion how Australian Schoolboy, Rugby could incorporated into a system where other bodies might contribute to management of the game.
Also, thanks to Joker and others for your support in seeking an objective and sensibly standard of debate. I know from one of my posts you disliked my idea that GPS Rugby should be considered more like US College Football. But, we see things differently in a respectful manner, no name calling. As clearly, one post has more to do with a certain individual's state of mind.
