    Tommy....Tommy..chill man. I was alluding to the way these big private schools that are lavished at the expense of our kids' and for PR purposes give scholarships to minorities. Anyway, this is a racist country. You should be far more concerned for our Indigenes.

      Perhaps some schools do throw around token scholarships to be me too. I know many schools that have the right attitude of creating an opportunity. I’ve spoken first hand with some Scots boys on such scholarships. Education creates opportunities for Leaders to change beliefs and history.

      I’d feel you’d learn much from a conversation with Angus Crichton

        You simply cannot make a comment or provide a piece of prose sans the political injustice that beats loud within you. You seem tortured.

        Hope you get something nice from our "racist" country somehow, and indeed find solace in the time and effort you donate to an Easts footy forum.

        Bleat on young man.

          With the reported transfer or ‘stop your bitchy crying’ fee souffs are getting, what do you lot think they will spend their $50ish k on?
          Drink some hand sanitizer and inject some disinfectant. Problem solved!

            Maybe they'll finally pay someone to clean their toilets

The fact is that lads and gals can't leave school before they are 17 these days - the youth unemployment figures are an embarrassment.
              Where is he at? The King's School on a "scholarship"? No way heavily invested - token islander.
              Looks like the only one needing some education is the one pointing fingers.

              Does your bigotry make the salty tears of losing the best teenager in Rugby League taste any better? Or are we still pretending you’re not a Souths fan? The first stage of grief is always denial, we’re all here for you...

                This is good news. Glad the drama with the Rabble is over.

                Here is to the future of the tri colours - very bright indeed!
                MRR or Rabid

                Some people believe supporting the Roosters
                is a matter of life and death, I am very disappointed
                with that attitude. I can assure you it is
                much, much more important than that.

                  I thought I read somewhere that he didn't play a game for Kings' 1st XV this year. Go figure... I'm guessing he's played 1sts since the age of 13/14 and they're basically resigned to the fact he's there for his HSC now (while training full-time as a professional league player). So like, he's literally just there to study (doesn't even play yawnion for them - GPS parents would probably complain it was too dangerous for their coddled up kids or some shyte if he took to the field... they'd probably need adequate insurance to cover any injuries to a professional player too).

                      Ism you should go watch a GPS firsts rugby match and see how coddled up those boys are - then after watching it with your eyes open hopefully you can make any comment you like about the nature of the participants.

                        Surely one of the biggest LOL@SOUFFS in history. When you think about the song and dance they made about securing him in the first place. All the media about trying to get the NRL to let him play early and fending off the ARU. Then acting like children and not wanting to release him. After all that he doesn't even play a game for those losers.

                        Now onto the kid himself, who has been unfairly portrayed by Souffs friends in the media as greedy and spoilt. It's garbage. He is coming to us for a lot less money because he is excited about the development he can have in our club- compared to the dead-end at Souffs.

                        They can have Latrell and his bung hamstring that will now keep on blowing out. We have the real prize and they are devastated about it.

                          They didn't give him a scholarship for PR. They gave it to win football games.

                            Hahaha mate my GPS rugby days are over. I get what you're saying (there's some quality athletes...etc and my coach won a Super Rugby premiership later on as coach). However, unless it's changed significantly:
                            - Grammar and Sydney Boys are selective, academic schools that don't give a rats. There's always a pretty big disparity between Kings/Joeys and the rest.
                            - There's always mummy and daddy's picks. ALWAYS... lotsa political selections, so you get softies who you can target.
                            - Teams will have 1 or 2 imported strike weapons, but that's about it.
                            - A guy this sorta size would have a bunch of overly protective parents complaining that they're over 18 or shouldn't be allowed to play because they are professional. No doubt parents have been complaining since he started playing 1st XV aged ~14.

                            Fun story, in my year we won the GPS basketball comp. I was removed from the court because a bloke whose dad had a major stake in the Hong Kong Bank ran into me, fell over and broke his arm. I was brought into their principal's office for a 'please explain' the next week (accompanied by the kid's parents and lawyers... all in suits and stuff). They demanded my birth certificate (kept challenging its authenticity as I was born in Italy), made up claims I'd made racist comments throughout, said I'd called their son fat (okay I did say 'I'VE GOT THE FAT GUY' at some point before rejecting one of his stupid, loopy shots + it triggered him big time). The whole thing went on rah rah rah with them demanding our school forfeit our title or be sued & for me to be expelled immediately so that I couldn't do my HSC. His parents then left and their principal begged ours to throw the result... like literally begged... coz this guy donated $$$ to their school and was gonna pull out. I later saw the guy at an inter-school function with a '[year] basketball champions' patch on his jacket (whole team had them) so I dunno what happened once I left. However, that's my lasting image of GPS sports.

                              All my much younger cousins went to Cranbrook and Joeys...they are all soft carnts. I think some probably wished they went to Trinity where they were making wooden dildos and jamming other students with them

                                The point is Axe that the PR impresses most people but the reality is that if that serious money was diverted from the already wealthy and spent on the schools which serve the majority of our kids there would be no need to extend opportunity to just the fortunate few who get sports "scholarships". The amount of taxpayer money spent on the wealthy is scandalous and is growing and you can see, just by looking, how poorly resourced our kids' schools are. Meanwhile, Cranbrook is now in the process of excavating a large chunk of Bellevue Hill largely, no doubt, at our expense.
                                I could be mistaken but I don't think Gus was a "scholarship" lad. Maybe your regular boarder off a country property - "Angus" (like Hamish, Duncan and Dougal) is a name you don't hear too much out Mt. Druitt way but, then again, Scots is infamous for buying their football teams. It's a big selling point for the nouveau riche who care more about that sort of thing having, most of them, left school in Year 10 or may as well have. The academic record there and in most GPS is nothing to write home about.
