    Australian Football. It's what makes our country great.

    Largely yes and I believe yes.

    It's hard to have any sympathy for them.

    Not quite correct.

    There were 9 players who played at the Penrith Rams the previous year and out of those there were 7 who had played junior footy together in the Blue Mountains and some since Auskick. Of those 7 there were 4 who were going to just walk away from AFL as they didn't enjoy their introduction to senior footy, well those 4 found a new club (and a new found enthusiasm for their footy). The other 3 from the mountains decided they wanted to play with their mates and moved on. Then the last 2 joined (totallying 9) and they were ex St Clair Crows juniors, traditionally St Clair junior boys would go to EC.

    After that and with social networking, players were asking these 9 where they were playing and it went from there.

    Not sure why Penrith have options on the Blue Mountains boys? In the old "feeder club" days, the Mountains boys were directed to Penrith or Campbelltown.

    Any forfeits this week? Hard to imagine a week these days without a team forfeiting.

    It's only Tuesday. If anyone's forfeiting already it's all over for them......

    The real truth is that the coach advised the players that Penrith were not intending to field a 19's team in 2016 which was just an outright lie, and engineered in October the previous year. Appears that many of these kids have lost their "enthusiasm" for the game after a year.

    Penrith are now the only "stand-alone" 19's club in Western Sydney if rumours are correct. I notice that the Blacktown Magic v Penno D1 19's match this weekend has now been adjusted into a "bye" for Penno

    Same bloke that applied for the Senior role at Bensons with the promise that he'd drag his whole 19s list up Castlereagh Rd. He was told not to bother....we hate Penrith but not that much!

    Approached Parra as well, but not happy with an "assistant" role.
