Yeah Merryman, my spies in your club keep telling me the same thing. Hopefully there will be enough teams for 2 divisions. And then even more hopefully the gradings will be respected, and the ego's kept in the bottom drawer. I'd guess the Auburn 18's will join us . . . hopefully a few more teams as well. Not long now . . . .
May be more teams joining 21's, hearing no U18s comp due not enough teams.
With the reduction in size of GDSFA, this was always on the cards. But they should do whatever they can to remove the bye from first division. From the talk last year, this 21s comp is made up of younger teams. My boys are mostly 18 and 19, and I know PCFC, Pendo and Ermo are also around the same age. So the transition for any 2016 u/18 teams won't be too hard. Hopefully, enough come up so we can have a 2nd divison. Has anyone had a trial game yet ?
Draw is up. I hope no one is colour blind with all the black, white. red, blue teams etc
You beat me to it, BJ. I was gonna say Merrylands has more colours than a traffic light
The landscape has definitely changed . . . but what the heck. The season is nearly here, let's make the most of it. At least we will work out some wicked short cuts to Merrylands. Jokes aside . . . It's a good thing there are still a few strong clubs like Merrylands and Pendo still in our comp. Otherwise the numbers would look pretty sad.

Hey 2017, We are back on the draw again. I think it was a time/field change. Nothing sinister. So let's throw in the fishin tips as well.
Lidcombe Waratah vs Merry Green. LW colours are Red and White. Merrylands colours are Red, Green and White. So logically, LW jerseys are more aerodynamic ( less colours . . . . And it is common knowledge that Green has a high drag co-efficient ), therefore we will run faster. And score more goals.
Merry Red vs Greystanes White. Hmmmm. Red and White make pink. In today's new age world, pink is the colour of acceptance and equality. This game is a draw. We don't want any winners or losers now, do we ?
Greystanes Black vs Pendo White. Black is usually better than white. But this white has a good black in front of it, but I don't know if this black is any better than it's white. This is the battle of the Maltese heartlands. A quick tally showed the Greystanes team had 643 relatives named Mary, overcoming the 624 from Pendo. A Greystanes win here.
Pendo Black vs Ermo. A rare clash of the clubs who's name can be shortened with an O. Not many left now that Baulko and Winsto have buggered off. Can't ignore the trophy. Pendo to get the bikkies here.
Parra City vs Merry Black. Like the Roosters V Souths in the NRL, this match kicks off the season yet again. A slow start from the mighty Parra last year saw them have to dig deep to overcome Merry Blacks. Merrylands have Castle Hill-esque player numbers turn up for grading, so who knows what sort of powerhouse they have built. In fearless fashion, I boldly tip a draw . . . but I'll go even further and call it as 2-2.
And there you have it. I've never tipped well, and can't see why this will be any different. Good luck to all the teams !!
