The Season - Nudgee College - Episode 2

By RugbyPass

A look at one of Australia’s most prestigious rugby schools as the First XV navigate their way through the 2017 GPS Premiership Season. Nudgee College is one of Queensland’s powerhouse rugby nurseries with 40 GPS rugby premierships to its name, but an impressive legacy is no guarantee of success and viewers are taken inside the previously inaccessible environment of First XV rugby to witness the day to day challenges of the Nudgee First XV as they attempt to hoist the premiership trophy for the 41st time.

In this second episode: with the first GPS game only days away, the boys partake in pre-match Nudgee traditions including the school Cheer Practice and War Cry. With the coaching staff reminding the team to keep a ‘blue head’ in the biggest game of the year, the pressure of a 10,000 strong crowd and a commanding display from brother school Gregory Terrace, affects the team discipline and the cracks begin to appear.

Jean de Villiers' three word response to 'best in the world' debate

This ‘raging’ debate is only happenning in media circles and has never been a topic in Ireland (although SA media are interested). It makes the media companies money I guess. SA are RWC champions and #1 ranked team although Ireland are back within a point there. The facts point to SA. For a lot of 2021 France beat ALL their rivals and Ireland similar in 2022-2023. It is not wrong to say that on such form either can be deemed to be the current best team if they have beaten all their rivals and ranked #1. The ‘have to have won a world cup’ stipulation is nonsense. The world cup draw and scheduling has been tailored to the traditional big teams since the start. The scheduling also which sees the big teams sheltered from playing a hard pool match the week before has also been a constant. It is extraordinary that for example France have made so many finals. Ireland who were realistically only contenders in 2023 were in a Pool with two other top 5 teams and had to play one of them 7 days before a quarter final against France or New Zealand. Always going to be a coin toss. Scotland’s situation was worse. New Zealand had great chances in 1995, 1999, 2007 but they could not win a tight RWC match. The first tight match they ever won was versus France in the 2011 final, literally they lost every other tight match before that. Some of those NZ teams around that era were #1 surely?
