And Wynnum MM beat a Gold Coast 17s development side. 17s put up a good fight playing against older players.

Big E was looking very anxious at training last night (Mudgee) because he's not allowed to train with us until after the 1st MM game, Emry has been well protected in the past over indiscretions on & off the field & this is where he needs to repay the people who have faith in him....

I have 2 tips, Green by 10 & Emry won't run anywhere near E :thumbsup:

I'd be very surprised if Ethan plays... surely his knee isn't 100%.. big risk for game one. They would be better off resting then they have the bye and then using him on the trip to melbourne

i really need to get down to some local games. can you enlightened ones tell me where the good stuff is at?

I played for mudgee in its foundation under 12 team in 1992 (Fullback extraordinaire, long before it was popular), and made a comeback in 2007 odd as a 27 year old winger, in the last year before they became hinterland storm. played A grade, won a derby against Nerang, and scored a couple of Meatie's versus Currumbin.

so Mudgee is close to the heart. tell me when and where.

That's good news for Whites. Definitely add some starch to the forward pack. I wonder how Keanu went with judiciary last night. The forward battle of this MM game is going to be epic. To very powerful and skillful forward packs.

I think the difference in the two sides will be GL.

Also very surprised Konrad Edwards wasn't name for CC White.

Whites won in both games.
CC white was 20-20 with a couple minutes to go. Whites scored to win.

MM White Won 19-16. No Ethan for whites. And no GL or AJ Brimson for Green.

Tyrone Davis was good for Whites as was Sam Elliott. For Green Caleb Williams was good. Very scrappy game in MM lots of penalties.

It was a solid game but too many penalties from dumb play mm Green have poor disapline giving away stupid penalties all game they also lost Vito after about 5 minutes & Brent Woolf took it upon himself to try & win it on his own & they wouldn't have scored a point without him but in the 2nd half he got too much "White line Fever" which is the worst part of his game, agree 100% with Renegades best players on the park, Williams speed is awesome when he runs that back line play.

Sam Elliot & Tyson were very good for the whites & Sam Clark who played the last 20 was very saving a certain try late in the 2nd half.

Both teams will be much better for the run

Ethan hurt his knee at training & luckily for him he was found out before warm up & taken out of the squad

RenegadeGC
28-02-15, 11:20 PM
Seeing Caleb Williams in full flight was awesome. The try off the scrum was something short of amazing. He does remind me of a miniature Greg Inglis.

Hopefully we will see highlights from game as we did in the trial.

Thanks for the clip mate Api is looking very strong & i've seen him play for about the past 3 or 4 years when he went to Burliegh where he was always a centre..how times have changed for him but from the highlights Jai Whitbread looked really strong, he will make it barring injuries , also thought AJ played the best i've ever seen of him.

They were supposed to be in the nsw Harold mats and sg ball comp but it fell through. So rather than not let them play. Nrl and qrl included them in their comp so as to further their development.
