UQ put thier team up on the website. I dont recognise a few names from nationals rosters etc, so i am gonna assume they are seppoes, but by the quality of their aussie players it looks like a hell of a team. Should be very very tough to beat. Its nice that they are coming this year....i wonder if the Gold Coast will be the extent of their travels in future considering its gonna be there evey 2 years and they can feild squads like that.

Missing last year certainly wasn't an intentional decision on UQ's behalf... there was a few things affecting the lack of a team, of which I think the two biggest were: a) an expensive Nationals campaign (Perth + Canberra) coming up for some players, and b) changing of the leadership guard, as Bretty (the man who really drove our Uni Games push) was no longer with us...

I'm out in a few months, so won't be part of things n future years... but I'd like to think that we can get ourselves better organised and driven so we're sending competitive teams both near and far... it's a bit elitist and snobby to just sit tight and only play when it's down the road, and we'd like to think neither of those adjectives apply to us :-)


As for this year: bring it.

As I said on the UQ website. That team is unbelievable.

I can only count 4 players on the list that I don't recognise as Aussies. But they might be because I haven't really seen the players this year.

John hit the nail on the head with those reasons for not going last year along with the option of playing at mixed nats instead which was in Brisbane and UQ entered a team at. Last year was sort of a changeover year between the older stalwart leading players not being around and the newer leadership finding their feet. Seems to be nicely in balance now and it would be sad if they did just keep playing gold coast tournies.

Go team.

So are UQ using those same horrendous uniforms as 07 or will you have a new kit designed to match up with silver accessories?

Look out for a new suufa dark strip at uni games, unveiled for the first time. It's quite simplisitic...rather a different approach from the UQ lovers.

Any news on these team sizes? Hopefully it all comes out for the better.

Im sure ANU is in the same situation as most of the unis; we really want to let people book flights etc as early as possible. Also, we are booked into the 'Moorings on Cavill'... Anybody stayed there before or are there this year? The first place we tried was all booked out by Newcastle.

Also, Shenanigans details are up for this year, see the other thread for details, but it would be great to get the uni teams down to canberra for the weekend. B squads are encouraged as well.

Ps. ANU just picked up a 6'6 seppo plus some returning alumni Grin, looking alot stronger for AUGs than EUGs!

Simon Talbot  ***ATTENTION ALL UNI ULTIMATE FOLK*** Squad size increase to 18 has been approved. More details to come via email tomorrow.

from Facebook

for the Unis that have already picked their teams of 16, will you be adding to your team size? Monash picked their team two weeks ago and will be facing a similar dilemma (as we had to cut about 6 guys and a girl)

Macquarie haven't selected a team, so I guess we're cutting less dudes now.

Yeah organisational lethargy - way to really pay off!

Also those of you who have selected your teams, put up your team lists! (on AFDA, or on here)

Let's get this board back where it belongs - frivolous gossip and baseless speculation about where everyone will finish.

I've heard that Tiger smells. And that mac's team is going to be made up entirely of one armed robots.

Nah man that strip was sick, the light blue number with the wings on the back? I was a big fan...original and interesting.

Frank loved that outfit. I heard he traded for one to wear at Mardi Gras that year.....

I was happy not to trade. I prefer frisbee shirts that don't make me look like a raging homo.

Not that there's anything wrong with that...

I've posted BUUF's team on the AFDA rego site.

I'm not sure if BUUF is going to pick extra players. A couple of folk we cut are signing up for other sports. We might cross-register one or two. I dunno - absolutely none of this is up to me.


By the way, when talking to your uni sports people about the squad size change, tell them that the Sports Specific Rules will be updated this week and will be noted in their next AUS Operations Memo.
