Any reports from Forshaw Park today?

I was expecting a better showing from the Norths machine, who have been impressive in the two's and had two prior victories over The Corporation in the 1's.

Manly managed to get some ones regarded to 2's, but they did play better, uni second half was a cracker. The wicks will test the corporation next week,( after today's win) and be too too strong in twos.

Southern put in a stern effort against the wicks today. Their 6 was outstanding and they gave it everything against a very fine Wicks side.
Wicks look good with the ball going wide and their 13 had a very good game as did The Wicks half back who passes well from the base.
Both second rowers had solid games and were good at the lineout, though Sths had the better of many scrums.
Wicks had patches a brilliance coupled with some very lazy play and were lucky not to have got more penalties against them for offside due in main to laziness.
They will have to work a lot harder for the full eighty next week.

Anyone give the Wicks a chance of tumbling the Corporation?
After The Corporation demolished their nemesis from Northern Suburbs, compared to the Wicks stagger across the line against the Hobbits, it is going to be a huge upset if the Wicks can strangle the Students to grab the chocolates. The Wicks will have to play a possession game in the piggies and keep the ball in close, away from the Uni speedsters like Narracort and Yassmin who are dangerous from 70 metres out.

Colts 2: Manly trashed the Unbeaten Minor Premiers last week to qualify. Finals footy is about desperation and taking chances. Manly did that last week and should trouble the Students but more than pride and passion is going to be needed to counter the superior S&C and preparation of The Camperdown Mob.

Colts 3. Uni should canter in, although the Hobbits gave them a good scare last week. This close result may not have been in the best interests of Manly as there is unlikely to be any complacency or gaps left in the preparation of The Corporation for the MMM to exploit.

A Uni trifecta is a distinct probability. One imagines that the majority of the crowd will be barracking for MMM or the Wicks, regardless of their "usual" tribal affiliation.

forecast for tomorrow is lots of rain. I wonder how foreshaw holds up and how the wet will effect playing styles. Go Uni! Good luck to Rats and Marlins.

A very wet paddock being dried out by pump greeted the First Grade Colts from Wicks and Uni. There was three lots of colour and all sorts of dress in the stands as it seemed Souths , Wicks and Uni's grade players were sharing 'Mad Sunday' and cheering for their Colts. This provided a great atmosphere.
Wicks started in sensational form with a well worked backline move to score 7 after seven minutes. Uni replied with a penalty but missed which put Wicks back on attack to score another try outwide after many hands and good passing to lead 12-0 after thirteen minutes.
Uni had not got into gear, but as they took stock they managed to break the Wicks line to score quite an easy 5. The Uni forwards set about their task and after some great arial skills from the 11 they were in again.
12-10 with both sides hard at it. Wicks had early dominance in the scrum but loose lineouts and any over throw was immediately snapped up by Uni.
The ebb and flow in the first half had both sides on the ropes but desperation kept each other at bay and halftime saw the score remain at 12-10.
Again in the second half the Wicks started the better and after two penalties in front of the posts they led 15-10 then 18-10 with thirty to go.
One had the distinct impression that the ferocious tackling by Wicks was getting the team slowly on top. The Uni team dug deep and slowly their scrum got the better of the Wicks scrum and it seemed they were on their way back. A couple of mistakes by them and the Wicks were in again to be 23-10 with sixteen to go.
Uni went all out in attack and looked to score but dropped the ball on the line. They were on the Wicks line for six or seven minutes and it was the Wicks turn to summon the depths of their courage. They held and got away from their line but gave the ball to Uni with six minutes to go. Uni got the overlap and managed a sixty metre try and the score was 23-17 with only 4 minutes to go.
They had got out of a loss in the final seconds in 2nd grade and won third grade 3-0 so the crowd was tense- could they do it again.

Uni from their own 25mtre line had a crack and got their 11 in space only to be tapped by a desperate dive from his opposite number and so they could not get the win.
Final score 23-17 to the Wicks.
Well done to all the players - a terrific spectacle played with intensity.
Uni's 11 looks very good.
Wicks all looked good and played for the full eighty as a team - well done.

Thanks to the vocal Souths supporters who helped drown out Uni's calls.

Colts deserve better than Forshaw for finals - any particular reason all final/s are played there? By the look of it, water polo or surf boat rowing may have been a better alternative than rugby yesterday.

I reckon nearly all ovals in Sydney would have been in a similar condition.

I think Forshaw Park is controlled by other than Council, and therefore was "open for business" yesterday.

Most Council controlled ovals would have been closed yesterday.

The mud and rain was a great leveller with a total of only 10 points separating the Premiers and Runner Up across three games of rugby. IIRC only 5 tries were scored in the 3 games.
