Sydney Subbies 2022

Knox have forfeited all senior grades against Blue Mountains this Saturday. The games were at Lofberg. They are only able able to put a colts team out there this week.

Just wondering if anyone from Knox is on here??? How do you go from fielding 5 grades - Round 1 and having fresh reserves in fourth grade, to not being able to field first grade by seasons end?

Never seen anything like this before. Extremely disappointing.

This is beyond farcical. I feel for the Blueys lads this weekend - it’s not fair.

Now that this has become a recurring trend and not just a ‘one-off’ occurrence I think Knox ought to be disqualified from the Division for the remainder of 2022, which includes their Colts. They plainly have not met the requirements of the Division and have clearly lied to Subbies somewhere along the line. It’s also disrespectful to the 9 other clubs who have to put up with their nonsense whilst many of them battle to fill their team sheets week in week out.

Possibly, but @Cranky Penguin 's question is valid though. They had heaps of numbers at the start of the season - where did they all go?

I agree champion it is not fair that they keep doing this to other clubs and still stay in the finals race for colts. If they don’t get disqualified from the competition then I really don’t know what subbies is thinking

Lol. Only able to score 44 against a Petersham that almost lost to Knox and 27 against St Pats who dont have a backline. Hope you have a few new recruits with that chat. I think we will be ok!
EastCoast is on the bongs again…

If the subbies administration had any backbone they’d throw them out of all comps for the remainder of the year. They’ll get a slap on the wrists and get a 10th lifeline in div2 next year. Should be sent to div 3/4 like brothers were a few years back. The club is rabble.

I have heard they are headed for Div 4 next year. It might have just been speculation. Of course, everyone will be unhappy if they are too good for Div 4.

Speculation? In Subbies land? In **this** thread?

Only game of relevance in DIv 2 is the Breakers vs HV clash.

UNSW will destroy Briars with a bonus point and can force themselves into a top 2 position where they get the week off and then they can run their 1sts around in 4th grade next week.

HV need to win or come away with 2 bonus points to secure a week off, Newport need to win or come away with 1 bonus point to secure the week off.

With fine weather forecast it will be the biggest crowd seen in years for subbies. Get there for some first class footy with all games going to go to the wire.

Not my place to discuss this one. Best to leave this be.


Results went as they should over the weekend in Div 1. Interesting to see Waverley could only put up 28 points against a depleted Knox side. Would be happy to keep a clean sheet though. Waverley may be the ones taking home Kentwell. So big
Since the coach just got effectively an 18 month ban, perhaps not just best to leave this be.

Just a query on the Knox situation. Where does Colts sit in regards to forfeiting 1st Grade. I thought that if a club forfeited 1st grade, then all grades below are taking to be a forfeit regardless of if they were played or not. Is there a different rule because it is colts?

Grose Cup: Merrylands drew away from Chatswood after an early tussle.

Turned up just as Redfield v Savers was getting underway. Redfield three tries before Savers could get their hands on the pill. Final result reflected a competitive second half.

McLean Cup: Redfield currently pounding Merrylands 27-0 but I'm watching Jeffrey Cup at the moment where Menai lead Irish 26-19 with about 10 to go.

Got to Boronia today as well to watch the home team get up in Third Grade. They got close wins in 2nd and 1st Grade as well so good day for them with the sponsors on the sideline and one gent running out for his 400th in Thirds.
