I'm backing UQ for 4th at ECC... no comment on AUGs until I know the team.

I think any team with jMc on its line up has to be respected.

as for UQ's team at uni games it will be solid even missing their big ticket players. However i think a number of teams may be down a couple of players due to worlds money drain syndrome.

Agreed, but it'll show the other uni's what UQ has been building up behind the scenes Cheesy

Quick question, does anyone know the best way to get from Melbourne to Woomera on a Friday afternoon/evening? Being from Brisbane I have no idea and need to do this on the last day of unigames, preferably after the final. Maybe even very early Saturday morning?

Fly to Adelaide and work your way from there. Bus or train perhaps.

We're getting very excited about AUG's over here in the West. We did some heavy recruiting at UWA at the start of this year and numbers and people wanting to play this year are way up from last year.

That sounds promising....

Sadly newcastle participation was kinda apathetic. Nobody really wanted to play AUG's for some reason.... Something I must file away for next year so i can push harder to get people in to play Cheesy .

you guys looked very much like you had a team on the weekend...i assume you are talking about last year.

Also, on th topic of uni ultimate, newcastle IV was awesome fun - great job daniel, had everything that was needed, no gripes at all, prizes appropriate - goon which will be consumed enmasse as a team next week, results were Suufa winning over Newcastle in an even tussle 9-8. Suufa also won spirit...dont really know how, but i believe its probably due to the clerical error of our estemed captain michael tarn not handing in our spirit scores until seconds before the final result was anounced...and who could be bothered to do th maths on the fly).

As for simmo's earlier predictions, from what i saw on the weekend newcastle will definately be a tough team to beat at ECC and should not be written off at all....i excpect the only team with no realistic shot at ECC will be UTS (sorry henry/tom/suj...you know its true though...definately in with a shot for winning the party Smiley )

Maple, although UTS may not win ECC's, but don't go into a game against them thinking you'll smash them. They have the talent on the team to take it to all of the teams coming to ECC's and I would not be suprised if they picked up a "shock" victory during the tourney!!
Much like CSU, UTS seem to not be able to carry intensity through multiple games, and therefore lose what momentum. But I am hoping on an upset during the tourney Smiley

It'll be a great week, looking at draw possibilities at the moment. I can confirm 2 fields for the 6 teams, at least 6 games for each team over the 3 days!!

Cheers mate.

I did the maths on the fly.... As SUUFA and only one other were in the running, I saw what score was given to the other and that wasn't enough. Suufa got the goon. All the teams told me you played with a high level of spirit (hence, the numbers) and I have no qualms about giving a team the prize for both spirit and tourny champs. Thats the way is should be. Anyway, i'm looking forward to an upset at ECC.  Grin Provided I can stop tarny smoking me up the line  Grin

I am actually talking about this year with the participation. We have a short list....  Cry Hopefully we don't have any injuries.

Oh, and on the topic of UTS.... Any one that writes them off is in trouble. The team that came to the IV had alot of "raw parts", lots of individual talent (especially the recievers), but the team didn't really gel on the day. If UTS make it to the final, I won't be surprised at all.

Definition of Irony: UTS beating Suufa to face Newcastle in the ECC final.  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Grin

Southern Intervarsity wrapped up this arvo. Bloody awful weather conditions - huge cross winds made anything flashy difficult so it was good solid ultimate with no room for mistakes.

1. Melbourne Uni
Not even full strength. Missing a few Worlds players, and Freise was only about for two games on Tuesday arvo. Incredible depth - no obvious weak areas.

2. RMIT
Don't get too excited - this was pretty much a pickup team, with 5 out of 10 being RMIT students. Still, the pickups weren't superstars, and the RMIT contingent showed plenty of promise.

3. Latrobe
On paper, they had the potential to win it, but never seemed to switch on. They know what to work on for AUG.

4. Ballarat
A new look BUUF, with only 4 returning players. Had trouble adjusting to a style that didn't include a deep hucking threat like the previous 3 years. Bit of work to do before AUG.

5. Deakin
Had the skills and the know-how, just lacked the experience and the legs. Played savage or close to all tournament. Upset Melbourne on day 1, so they are capable of ruffling some feathers.

Spirit winners - Ballarat
MVPs - Jason Gibson (Deakin), Mandy Fung (RMIT/Ballarat/whichever team happened to be short on girls each round).

Monash withdrew from the tournament on Tuesday morning because they couldn't field a team, causing some TD to be fucking furious about it having spent all the money to make a 6 team tourney happen.

It'll happen first round first day. Deakin rolled Melbourne at the Southern IV in Round 1, and I've seen similar upsets at other uni tournaments. It happens because a higher team is prepared for several games over several days, and don't expect a contest against a lower team, while the lower team just comes out all guns blazing.

Yep can happen we shocked UQ last year we probably had the biggest lead of any team against them going up 4-0 then we lost 15-4  Grin

It's often the case in other sports that the lower ranked teams can actually decided the make up of the top teams. Everyone is expected to beat a certain team but one or two teams slipping up against them can make the difference between 1st or 3rd for example. It also makes a difference in terms of the points difference. Even if everyone does beat UTS, the difference between making the finals and not can be the fact that team X only beat them by 3 or 4 whilst team Y beat them by 7 or 8.

To adapt a quote from the world of theatre: "There are no small games, only small players."
