Depends on how you're putting it together. The newport 9 was really good, but a lot of his stuff only comes off because the guys in the team know it's coming, mostly because they've played together for a long time. If you pick the newport 9 and 10 pretty much the rest of the backline has to be from Newport, thats the only way it works.hahahahahah Only two from the Premiers who lost one game all year?
9 has to be Seb Allen, 10. Jeremy Allen and Sam Groom who was Div 2's best has to be at fullback where he won his award. Probaly argue for 3 or 4 from Newport in the forwards too.
No goss to give here. Enjoying some time away from rugby gearing up 2023. A lot of things to work on and hopefully make a big statement next season to shut the haters up
couldnt find a spot for any Rouse Hill boys.
Sorry Pfitzy - Couldnt fit a spot for the Renegades boys,There is no Rouse Hill. Only Renegades Rugby
I was basically just going to say: as many Oysters as you need, throw in the McLean Medal winner and some Epping boys, as well as some Savers in the Tight Five as their scrum was pretty solid.
lol all good - we put in some decent work at times but a lot of those teams above us had real qualitySorry Pfitzy - Couldnt fit a spot for the Renegades boys,
Thanks for the challenge there, @Eastcoast. The top three teams were definitely dominant in the competition, so they will make up the majority of the Division 4 team. Given my club allegiances and some bias, I am going to limit myself to five players from any team. With that, here is my Division 4 team of the year:Boring day at work - So thought Id help out Div 4
This was based mainly off the handful of the final games I saw and stealing some names off FuseSport.
Happy to have your take on these. A few Epping lads but couldnt find a spot for any Rouse Hill boys.
I would have done Div 5 -But couldnt pick 14 Menai players and Curtis Scott.

The Savers front row are amazing, both in the set piece and around the park. Could have added Haeffell there.
The second row are a pair of toilers. You won't see them do the flashy things but they get through a lot of work.
The back row is interchangeable and dynamic. Tempone was quiet against us, but I've seen him do amazing things. Byrnes is very rightly the McLean Medallist and a game breaker. McClelland is an amazing leader and great all-round player - has been for a long time.
A great lineout with Forrest, Byrnes, McClelland and Tempone all capable jumpers.
Halfback - I can't split Harrison and my own runt, TNM. Both have great vision and passes.
The combo between Remond and Stubbs I couldn't break. Bushell is a line breaking freak. Arias was a fantastic addition to the Savers team at the back end of the season, given his professional 7s and 15s experience. McKenzie was a solid comtributor for a very good Redfield team, who were a bit unlucky not to have more players listed and Marshall is a tryscoring freak. For a little guy, he packs a hell of a punch, is tough in contact and doesn't give an inch.

What are peoples thoughts on the viability of localised mid-week 10 a side comps through summer, maybe 5-10 week comp in the early months of the year depending on club numbers.
Obviously another big commitment for volunteers, and ground availability an issue, but might keep players engaged in the club through the off season.
Interested to hear everyone’s thoughts on the make up of next seasons divisions
Bring on the subbies 2023 thread @Pfitzy
Great Analysis -
Anyone on here from Div 5 to give it a crack?
No one else had a shot at Div 1 either - Surely the @The Waverley Walrus could have a shot?
When do we start the shit talk for 2023?
what excuse will subbies have for not relegating Drummoyne? Petersham and Knox all but confirmed.
been taking some time out from the forum, or as I call it Pfitzy’s memoirs.
If this is true how would a team like Petersham fair in Div 2? What is the gap between divisions at the upper end
