I'm puzzled by the comment that Tristan Goodbody "didn’t get enough game time to edge the starters". As he was the only player to start every game for Randwick this year and was only replaced late in the match a couple of times this comment seems a bit harsh. Maybe he needed to play a few lower grade games every week as well as firsts ;)

Michael Kovacic has been outstanding all year, very industrious and effective.


Hope he keeps improving, and I hope he gets a shot at higher honours soon. Locally, preferably, so that we can keep him on the books. :cool:

The team originally picked is very close to the mark, definitely not this one

4. Barry
5. Peterson
6. Bergelin
7. Black
8. Holloway

14. Dargaville
15. Feltcher

16. Porecki
17. Gillespie
18. Talakai
19. Clyne
20. Boidin

Heard a whisper that Boidin (Uni) is off to France (Narbonne - I heard) very soon.

Pat Hodgetts (Wicks) is off to The Netherlands (Waterlands Club).

Considerate of the ARU to launch the NRC a couple of days before the premier rugby GFs in Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth and not even mention them. Watching the news last night you'd have thought there was no rugby being played before the start of the NRC other then the Bledisloe Cup on Saturday night.

Is there a Grand Final on this weekend?

Banter up lads.

I'm going for The Hobbits in a close match. They seem to have been able to rise for the big occasions when everyone else has written them off.

The Woodies seem to have copped too many injuries to a number of top flight players and this will impact on their ability to play their usual precision football.

One thing is certain and that is that they will not be ambushing the Woodies this weekend as they were able to in the semis.

Well the ARU are SO supportive of Premier Rugby these days!
