    That would save a bye in both comps.

    What's the higher standard... This league or Qafa A reserves?

    This league is significantly superior to QAFA A Reserves.

    The top 2 or 3 teams in this comp would push for finals in QAFA Seniors, but there are 2 distinct 'pools' in this comp. Top 5 or 6 sides are competitive, then it drops away very quickly.

    Although the standard dropped a bit in 2015 from 2014 at the top end, there was more depth in this comp this year than ever.

    I'm expecting massive things from jimboomba next year. New era of Redbacks look like it is coming through. plus keeping Guise and Watson. Also news is a few old faces coming back to the club, and 1 really big signing aswell. Watch this space...

    Jimboomba have always wanted to go up in devision, but numbers has always been the problem. Hopefully with Yarrabilba (housing estate) growing at a crazy rate there might be 22 ex Victorians in there somewhere.

    The boomba only needed 2-3 solid players to challenge for the premiership so if what you say is true and with Kedron looking to move on they are in the box seat.

    That being said, if Woodsmen get a few of their injured guys back and retain most of the list they won't be push overs either.

    Many months to go before the ball is bounced though so let the rumours and slandering continue until then!!

    Given it's the Redbacks, it'd have to be Ryan Crowley wouldn't it?

    I guess you can only be judged by your last performance. But I see good things in 2016. Change of coaching staff and better team leadership will go a long way.

    So I've googled this Wayne Carey fella, and it appears he may have been mates with Mrs Stevens more than Mr. ;)

    (how are you BTW outandabout? Off-season is a b!tch for staying in touch, isn't it? How's the club going? All good signs for 2016?)

    The boys are training next week. Hopefully will have enough numbers for two teams. Only time will tell. There was a bloke who played for swans and Southport in my day. His wife was very friendly with his teammates as well. Really enjoyed sledging him about it. Probably out of line but he really was a tosser.

    Who is in the comp this year. I hear whispers of a split comp! Any new coaching or player recruitments?

    I have heard the same thing. But how would you split it? Would it be based on location, ladder position in 2015, something else? And is 2 divs of 7 teams each better than a 14 team comp?

    Here's my (uneducated) take on a possible split:

    Coorparoo
    Jimboomba
    Morningside (assumption - Kedron moving back up)
    Sandgate
    University of Queensland
    Woodsmen
    Zillmere


    Collingwood Park
    Ferny Grove
    Ipswich Cats
    Ipswich Eagles
    Kenmore
    Mayne
    Yeronga

    Are there other teams looking to enter? Or could a merge of one of the north/south comps into central work?
