Hey buddy, keep it positive. Your sniping and petulant comments are getting tiresome. Let’s focus on the footy and what should be some cracking finals.

Fair call mate. I'm growing tiresome of me also to be fair. I only ever made an account on this thing after being sick and tired of reading the absolute rubbish written about my club from one source in particular. I've had my fun.

Engadine beat Collaroy 27-25. See-sawing game, Engadine behind 10-zip then came back to a handy lead and nearly got reeled in according to the app.

Yup, copped a red for a lifting tackle.

North Cronulla looked very good. Played at a much faster tempo.

Let's all keep our accounts and talk rugby.

We could all shitcan clubs we don't like(I can put shit on opposing clubs with the best of em) but let's talk about the good players paying subbies footy. I enjoy a good Saturday watching rugby, not so much the professional crap dished up on telly at present.

How was Yesterday Laura?

Confident you can get them in 2 weeks?

Noice Cup was won, which was a fantastic game of rugby.

Hopefully we can up our game and come back for the win in two weeks, but it all depends on if our guys come with the right attitude. Anything can happen! It was a good, hard game. I don’t expect anything less in two weeks.

Super tight game for you guys yesterday. Burra next week should be a good match.

Yup, I saw sure we were gone when they scored and converted from sideline to go 1 up.

Was a great day of rugby at David Phillips on Saturday with St Pats and Blue Mountains sharing the first spots in the grand finals. It's always a day of high drama and intensity with 7 clubs converging on the one ground with seasons on the line, but as Bopper touched on amongst all the carry on and stupidity at times of subbies crowds you shake hands at the end of the day and move on. Some interesting results across the board notably UNSW registering an upset win over Blueys in 4s, Blueys late charge in colts to give Lindfield a scare and Forest knocking off an in form Epping lineup in 2nds.

I had seen a bit of him throughout the year but fair dinkum the winger from Blue Mountains (jersey #11) 1st Grade can play. Can create something out of nothing and if he finds a bit of open field stop the fight because boy he can run! A real talent and a very handy player to have in any team. I was watching more of the Epping v Blueys game but saw/heard Forest v Pats game was a seesawing affair. Forest used their rolling maul and well drilled pack well and St Pats used their big tight 5 to barge over from close range. I feel that both Forest and St Pats can match Blueys in the forwards, its the back line where Blueys will have the advantage.

4th Grade
Hills v UNSW - Hills started well v St Pats but were blown off the park in the 2nd half. They have some very good individuals in the back line who should be able to control the UNSW boys. Hills by 10.

3rd Grade
Lindfield v Hills - Lindfield will be glad to see something other than a Blue Mountains jersey in front of them and I'm backing them to come away with the good and play Blueys for the 3rd time in 4 weeks at Concord.

Colts
Forest v Lindfield - First of the local derbys and both teams will be fired up to have a shot at St Pats in the GF. Forest will be keen to bounce back to their winning ways but Lindfield colts know how to get the job done at finals time. In a thriller I'm backing Forest in by 1.

2nd Grade
Lindfield v Forest - similar to 3s I think Lindfield will benefit from playing a different opposition but then again Forest are playing some very good rugby. I really can't pick which way this one will go but think Forest will just sneak through.

1st Grade
Forest v Blue Mountains - This match shapes up as an absolute cracker and I can't wait to see who comes out on top. Blueys probably are the form team in the comp but I have a good feeling about Forest. If Forest play smart, use their forwards well and avoid the Blueys back 3 they should be able to grind out a victory. I might be delusional but I think there will be twists and turns through the 80 minutes in what could almost be the match of the season.

Good luck to all involved!

Honestly.. how about that winger..

Don't mean to ruffle any feathers but had a look for this winger after the comments. The 14 was our outside centre from last year, what's more alarming is he absolutely played shute shield for parramatta in round 1 this year. Confirmed by Fusesport, it doesn't lie

Mind you I don't really know the rules, maybe that's OK?

If registered with Blueys before 30 June no problems at all.
Fair enough, I don't have an issue with it at all personally. Quite the opposite, I also have no issue with blokes being paid but that's another matter. I just thought when you filled out rego it asks about playing Shute in last 2 seasons and maybe that was a rule?

It is a rule somewhat, but if you get clearance from your Shute Shield club and subbies it is fine. It's a strange rule because I can't see why Subbies would stand in the way of a good player who is keen to play for a subbies club. Players change their mind all the time, maybe the training was too much, the ground too far away, the coach was a pest etc etc there is any number of reasons why they may jump ship and as far as I'm concerned the better quality players bring better quality rugby and competition.

Agreed. The more high quality players subbies can attract the better

I agree somewhat, but quantity kills when the players don’t have the respect to be financial members.
True, not fair to the players that do the right thing, but unfortunately the players know they have the clubs over a barrel re fielding teams... having said that, what we pay to play now does make you think twice about playing on and I know fees are substantially more at other clubs.
