    What they need is quality RMC players not A Grade backups...they also need to be smart about which fringe Norths NSW Cup players they go for. No point getting the ones who won't play many games for them.

    good to see the draw finally up.

    Had a quick look at the draw. Go the Magpies! lol. I forgot that there were 3 Magpies teams in the comp.

    And good to see that Kingsgrove have set out their home grounds from now. Late year, some games of them were chosen at the ''last minute''. Good to have both Kogarah Oval and Hurstville Oval being involved.

    Also good to see Belmore Oval being used for 3 games for the Auburn club. I've been there many years ago as a child for soccer matches, but sadly not for Rugby League games, so this may be the best opportunity for me to attend a game here.

    Looking at the 1st week of the OAMPS cup I have noticed a lot of team changes.


    Kingsgrove have lost their two best players.

    Brett Manning - Cabra
    Petros Thanos - Asquith

    Wests have recruited well

    Rusty Bristow - Vulcans
    Junior Vaivai - Cutters
    Nu Akeripa - Retirement

    Kingsgrove again doing what they do best. lol

    Wests have a strong budget. Should be able to attract top level players due to that. Whether the culture is there to hold them is another aspect. Training 4dys a week puts a lot of players off pretty quickly.

    Could be tough year for Cabra this year from wot I've seen around the joint and their loss to Kingsgrove last week.
    Haven't seen one player from their GF win 3 years ago at training

    Beat Colts 44-24 rnd1, but I think it's fair to say that that is a poor result, as most top clubs have put 80+ on them in the past. Can't imagine Colts have improved that much in 2014.

    Some interesting results on the weekend.

    Cabra were tipped to account for Auburn - not even close

    Mounties tipped to easily deal with Workers - defense anyone?

    BNRU were tipped to get a close one against Colts - ouch! 0-3 and dead last!

    Magpies and Guilford only one that was close to prediction, but wrong way around - Wests with their budget SHOULD be better

    Wenty were tipped to run away with it against Asquith - Perhaps they forgot to pull their pants up first?

    ----

    Early days though. Anything can happen, I guess...

    Asquith were ahead until 8 minutes from full-time, when Wenty scored in a scrappy half filled with drop ball from the rain. Ended up getting another try on full-time after a lucky ricochet on a grubber kick. But Asquith more than held their own and maybe even unlucky not to get anything out of the game.

    Has anyone seen much of the Peninsula Seagulls play? They seem to be accounting for most Shield opposition quite comfortably. I wonder if, after a bit of recruitment, they're up for a move into Ron Massey next season?

    I have seen them play. Their defence, up until last weekend was their only problem. They have a very good back line which produces points. They lead 26-0 against Auburn and nearly let it slip. Definitely would compete with some of the weaker sides in RMC.

    Also heard former Balmain Tigers player Michael Withers is playing for Hills District. He would be about 38 years old. Dunno if its just a rumour.

    Asquith beat Kingsgrove tonight in the catch up round 2 match 36-6

    Hearing a few whispers about Peninsula possibly moving to RMC next season. Their coach Tim Gee believes that on their day they could compete with some NSW cup teams.

    Any predictions for finals contenders come September?
