Colleagues are actually the Convicts.Div 5 Preview!
Colleagues vs George’s River
The new boys George’s River gave a good account of themselves last week against a strong Sea Lice side whilst Colleagues were run over by Buraneer. If the River Boys travel they should get the win by 10 in this one. Building for the grudge match vs Oatley in a couple of weeks.
River Boys by 10.
Kings vs Canterbury
Canterbury were desperately unlucky to go down after the bell last week but with Kings having the bye I’m expecting them to be fresh and to run the bigger Berries pack around.
Kings in a close one by 3.
Oatley vs Maccabi
Always a tough road trip down to Oatley at the best of time but coming off not fielding a side last week this could be a blow out, fingers crossed the Maccabi boys can get into the season . Oatley to make it 2 from 2 in this one. Oatley by 30
Blacktown vs Balmain
Normally this would be my match if the round but hard to go past the Sea Lice blockbuster. A fresh Blacktown take on last gasp winners in Balmain. Blacktown looked strong in the preseason and with new leadership things are looking up after a tough 2022. After just getting home Last week I’m tipping the Laurie Fisher magic to wear off this week and Blacktown to get up in this one.
Blacktown by 1.
North Cronulla vs Burraneer
Match of the round across all divisions for me. Great to see this game being under lights at Forshaw. Sea Lice looking strong again as always with a win over the River Boys last week. But with out there NRL import I am tipping the Burra boys to get the upset in this one and stamp there tittle claims early on this year. A try in it late.
Burraneer by 5
Good to see the Colts boys not afraid to play a grade side either this week. Although after seeing them on Saturday - they seemed to be as big as most grade sides anywayAnother Forfeit with Hawkesbury colts not making the trip to Soldiers Memorial Park tomorrow.
I don’t know which club you are affiliated to but that way of thinking about an hour in the schedule is fairly backwards.Its deadset all happening, forfeits everywhere....
Next thing for subbies to sort out will be this Womens 7s stuff. My club's about to be bitten in a bum by it 2 weeks in a row, with massive gaps between our games to accommodate these additional games that we aren't a part of. All of us want to make the Womens game successful, but making the length of time between 3s and 2s on game day even longer helps no one.

Have seen a number of these games so far and there is significant interest from all at the ground and the guys love it. It tidies up the sideline crap and the girls buy into the club with a likely result more players at the club, more sponsorship and more players attending functions. Hopefully more clubs enter teams next year and rugby grows
Manly Savers have forfeited both first and second grade according to fusesport…
Colleagues are actually the Convicts.
Typo in draw.

I'm all for it, there just has to be a better way than how it's currently being done.
