    Not enough quality and some of the quality thought to be signed will not come to fruition but my guess is you already know this mate

    No mate, I haven't heard anything for a few months now re new signings or anything else for that matter, hence the question. But I agree, things aren't looking too good.

    Any news on recruitments on Northside QAFL? Very quite from Kedron and Oine Rivers. What's the gossip QAFL seeing you seem to be in the know around the traps?

    I only really know about the southside mate.

    But I've heard a few of Redcliffe's better players (are there any?) will be suiting up for Kedron, provided they get promoted as planned.

    also heard Pine Rivers have lost even more to Zillmere.

    heard nambour are dropping out of North does this mean anything for our comp? leaving north with only 6 teams surly they scrap the north and south qfa and have just a qfa ??

    6 sides in a comp is hardly worth it .

    I reckon they should demote some QFA Nth/Sth sides back to QAFA A and merge the QFA

    not sure if it will happen though. Or have a QFA A and QFA B of 8 teams each.

    Stop making sense. The only problem is that common sense is so uncommon. If the aflq want an even competition than a restructure must happen. My money is on they don't do anything and some clubs will struggle badly.
    The definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over again and expect a different result.

    When are you blokes going to realise that aflq don't give a rats about any comps below qafl level ? They didn't care 2 years ago when they did the last re-structure and they certainly don't care now.

    Be very ordinary if they drop Nambour back to our Comp? Image the trip from Carrara to Nambour?

    Be a great trip on the Pirate Bus? Few quite tubes on the way home. Nothing like a good bus trip. Even better when you win.

    Toowoomba were around 1999 -2000...from memory, Glasshouse were a 1 team club, Gympie came up for 1 year but but withdrew/forfeited the 2nd half of the season in the early 2000's... but Redcliffe (my perspective) won a flag in 2005 in a 'higher' division

    Toowoomba 98-2003 Gympie 2002, Glasshouse 2003-2004 two teams. Tigers won flag in 2002 and went up a division in 03 so you wouldn't have played Glasshouse

    Cheers mate, the old memory has certainly faded, didn't realise Toowoomba were in it that long and definitely didn't know about Glasshouse

    Yeah Toowoomba were hard to beat up there, not so good in the city. They wanted to stay but were forced back into the Darling Downs league to help prop them up they were down to 4 teams if memory serves me correctly

    They had a couple of very good onballers in 99/2000 and were a decent bunch of guys

    I am sure most clubs have submitted heaps of permission to interview forms but clearances can not be lodged until February . So it will only be gossip until then PI. From February I am sure we will start seeing how active teams have been in the player market.

    If what I am hearing is right there will be some quality players lining up in this competition. We are happy with our recruiting thus far at Pirates but we are always looking for more like most clubs.

    From where we finished last year we have to recruit well to improve and match it with the teams in the top 5.

    Is Warwick in that competition Karma?

    I am hearing they may struggle to field a side this year after winning premiership only a few years ago?
