Merrylands also decided to parachute the fuck out of the comp with 2 weeks to go - forfeit last week against Mac uni and this week Canterbury, who will win the club championship by default

UnfortuneatlyI've had reports of poor behaviour in this thread. Having a look at the posts there is grounds to ban mambers on rule six

6. Play the ball not the man / No personal abuse of forum members, players, officials and public figures. Personal comments will be deleted and you'll get a card or ban.
This also applies to comments about players, coaches, Referees and other public figures. Feel free to criticize their play and decisions with reasoning, but not slander them as a person.
"Like last weekend, he's always seagulling and it gives me the shits" is OK.
"He's a f*ckwit who'll never amount to anything" is not.
Only a complete knob jockey resorts to personal insults anyway.

And rule ten.

10. If another poster does not understand or agree with your point after 3 or 4 attempts, LET IT GO, WALK AWAY. It is very boring for other posters when the thread gets hijacked by two people having an argument. Let this be your guide:

Brothers 2nd grade looking to set a new benchmark loss today.

The 134-0 effort against HAC from 2018 could be under threat.

They’d need to turn up first.

I know mate. I felt awful when I rocked up and saw what was happening.

I knew we wouldn't have the numbers, as I said yesterday. If it was up to me, you guys would've been told as much days ago.

Apologies. What a shit show

Terrible off field incident today at Kerlie Park for Savers v Raptors. Ball being kicked into touch from penalty strikes unsited Savers stalwart on top of head rendering unconscious. In hospital with potential spinal injuries. Not good.

What an absolutely disgraceful turnout by the Brothers Club today - hang your collective heads in shame!

Its time for the Brothers club to be relegated to the Halligans social comp I say. They don't offer anything to the Subbies comp - multiple forfeits throughout the season (both 3rds and 2nds today as an example) - and once again, one of their islander/ Fijian blow-ins was yellow carded (in 1st grade - according to Fusesport) for an illegal tackle (either a head high or without any arms in the tackle - take your pick...).

Subbies Rugby can do without this lot - go back to "old mans"/ social rugby (the Halligans Cup), thats where this lot belong...

Subbies needs more of the new age clubs like ROBs...

Get rid of the old "has-been drift wood" I say...

Thank you mate. The skipper is the one and only ball runner and if you get up and whack him they have zero go forward. They were honestly losing yards with the pill against us. Its all side to side, block play, block play rubbish.

They concede penalty tries from scrums on the regular and they also remain the only team I've ever played who have gone uncontested in 1st grade from kickoff.

I'm not saying we are great - we're shit and getting deservedly relegated (long overdue), but we can beat ROBs while teams better than us can't?

Maybe its a size thing. From memory, (although not this year) the other team that has success against them against form is Valley who have a few big boppers.

Maybe they also don't rate us so they try and run the ball where they may kick against better sides, because they do have a very good kicking game.

Blacktown for the win this week, surrrrrrely. Let the madness end.

I honestly need a headcheck, can't believe I've just posted a tactical analysis of div 3 subbies. Is anyone hiring?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So it appears ROBs put the sword to Blacktown today in 1st grade - just like I said they would earlier in the week... so much for BTown being dominant in the forwards and in the scrums...

Blacktown will self-implode in the semis - also as I predicted...

Good on ROBs - they will take out this division, and they will put the sword to all of the 'pretenders' - like B'town...

Subbies needs the 'old'/ 'has been' clubs (and there is plenty of them out there - you know who you are...) to be well and truly put out to pasture, and new-age teams like ROBs to be grown, encouraged, and fostered into Subbies rugby - thats how Subbies rugby will survive into the future and be prosperous moving forward...

Looks like they "dogged" it... what a sorry state of affairs the Brothers club must currently be in for that to happen... quite shameful if you ask me...

Not to far off for you there Pfitzy.
I notice you had a 1st grade Shute shield player from west’s harbour this year? What’s the process for clearance.
I think it’s great that these players come and give a boost to their local or junior clubs.
Genuinely Interest in the process though.

He retired after being yellow carded on Saturday against Beecroft

He is now playing lawn bowls with Ernie Clonk and the rest of the 'blue rinsed' hair brigade..

I'd like to announce my comeback for Redfield Old Boys next season. I've already souvernered myself a jersey.

She's a bit tight but apparently I'm the 3rd grade 13?

Attended the bobs vs forest game at Melwood. As a club they have the infra, player numbers and facilities to be in div 1 should they go up. They get a good crowd too. They have some big forwards and some pace out wide but not a lot of flair and creativity to threaten div 1 teams.
I understand subbies want 10 clubs in div 1. Assuming Balmain drop to div 3 or lower, them the loss of 3 clubs will see a loss in strength in div 2. Apart from Robs, which clubs would want to go up?

Time for a shake up. Forest, Hunters Hill and St Pats to Div 1 to make it a 9 team comp featuring a bye round.

Balmain relegated to oblivion and I reckon Knox could do with some rebuilding and is invited into Div 2. ROBs and Newport also up invited up to a DIv 2.

Canterbury and harlequins up to DIv 3. Brothers and a northern Saints merge to close out DIv 3.

Div 1
Mosman
Forest
Mountains
Colleagues
Petersham
Hunters Hill
St Pats
Drummoyne
Waverley

Div 2
Hills
Lindfield
Newport
ROBS
BOBs
Epping
Unsw
Knox

Div 3
Brother Saints
Canterbury
Blacktown
Iggies
Beecroft
HAC
Hawkesbury Valley
Sydney Harlequins.

Geographically it works pretty well and DIV 1 in particular is filled with local derbies to help them build crowds.

Only problem is DIV 4 and below would be in disarray. But they basically are anyway.
