I emailed the nswru about this exact point. I was told by Lisa Kane they are changing the page they are using and there is a delay. I have the full draw if anyone wants to give me there email. Im sure the clubs would have the full draw but most only put up the games involving there own clubs.

Anyone know where Rowan Perry from the Canberra Vikings will be playing - he has moved to Sydney so guessing a Shute side has picked him up - was also training with the Tahs this off-season.

Will be interesting to see how Warringah go looks like they have lost a whole back row(Ward, Cunningham to HK, Killingworth to 7's), one front rower + a bit of second grade depth (Stanley) & potentially Angus?

Harry Jones should be available more throughout this season and Tyson Davis has another year of experience.

A few players who played for NRC teams in 2014 beyond their "usual" club affiliations ended up playing 2015 Shute Shield for a club aligned with that cross-border NRC team.

Will Harry Jones remain with the Rats in 2016 or has he been "Playforded" and we will see him in Blue and Gold this year?

Any players changing clubs for 2016 based on off season NRC recruiting?

Whatever happened to another former Rat 9 who went to Manly in expectation of greatness and disappeared? Jack Rowntree. For a while there he was touted as the next Gregan by Manu Sutherland and his band of merry men making rockstars out of 14 year olds

Anyone got a list of the 2004/5/6 NTS (National Talent Squad which I think it was called then) members, and where they are now? They will be in their mid-late 20's now and should have reached their rugby "peak".

Historically less than 1/2 the Australian Schoolboys go on to pro Rugby.

Does the Koala Club have a better conversion rate?

I found a programme from 2004 State Champs buried in the Jarse Archives during a recent cleanup. Not many of the rockstars that were being developed by the Districts in 2004 have kicked on to pro rugby a decade later, let along Shute Shield First Grade.

It would seem that the cream will rise to the surface, despite the efforts of those charged with managing the process to help said cream to rise.

These were the supposed elite U18's chosen for ASRU duties in 2006. 10 seasons later, where are they now, and what have they achieved rugbywise in the intervening period*?

* Not every player selected for ASRU teams desires to make rugby their career, or even their main sporting priority post school.

Edit: It appears that the NTS concept only started in 2004. For a number of years there was also an AIS Development Squad of even more elite folk running in parallel with the NTS. The National Gold Squad (and Junior Gold Squad) package seems to have arrived on the scene around 2010 or so, replacing the NTS.

^^^That's only the draw for The Corporation and Randi-Wix.

Most Club Websites have a copy of the draw, as it pertains to them. So best to visit your aligned club web site to see how your winter is shaping up, travel wise.

Colts followers will have to assume that their draw is opposite to that of Grade, in terms of home and away teams for each round. Be aware that it has become popular of late for some clubs with two fields in close proximity to have The "Club Days" or "Super Saturdays" where both Grade and Colts play at the same venue. These don't seem to be highlighted as yet on the various club websites.

I've heard West Harbour have bolstered their backline with former Uni player Stefano Hunt and Canterbury Bulldogs forward David Minute.

Minute had his $90K contract terminated in 2015 by the Dogs for making harassing phone calls to a female coach. It's understood they are preparing him to play 12.

BTW, Wicks have announced Morgan Turinui will be Club Attack Coach and Jock Giacheri will be Club Set Piece Coach. Nick Ryan has signed on for another 2 years as Director of Rugby and Travis Partridge as Director of Colts. But no mention of the 1st grade coach o_O

The silence about the first grade coach is deafening - whilst rolling out cliches one can say that where there is smoke there is fire
