How about U18 boys

I think we have read before Qld south will be the team to beat. Will Tas stand up liek they did here last year? Will Vics respond after poor efforts last year. I think WA Met will be there abouts again. Very well coached.

pretty sure qld south will just be too strong. WA met will do well I think but I reckon the Vics will be dissapointing again, probably 4-6

No doubt Qld Sth are loaded with talent but they were at 16's two years ago and finished 3rd.

WA Metro are also pretty talented but finished 4th in 2005.

Vic Country beat Vic Metro in the 2005 final but neither team had the most talent. How did they do it?? Played good team basketball thats how.

Other than those four NSW Metro are the only other team that could challenge as they have some size and talent but will they play together??

The two Vic teams with average talent may well play off again!!

With the numbers the Vics choose from how could they not ever have the talent? How do you recon NT, Tas, ACT, WA Country feel?

What do you mean, anon? Same old? They lost by 10 (in a reportedly close match) to a stacked team (6 AIS kids), who are favoured to take the championship out?

Wouldn't that be a positive start to the week?

The Vic teams made the final, BECAUSE they had the most talent..

Not because they had just had good coaches. Thats dumb as. They clearly had better players.

You guys are crazy.

Oi- Dont forget NSW U18 MM won the 2011 National and probably 2012 too.

About half of NSW U18 2011 winning Team were all bottom age boys who also won the U16 2010 National. VIC, QLD South and our boys will face them again at WA 2012. The NSW U18 MM 2012 will be virtually the U16 NS MM 2010, now much bigger stronger and talented

NSW metro will almost certainly win u/18 nationals again next year...
Mark Watkins going for the 3pete
anything other than gold would be a failure seeing as mentioned above half the group was bottom age and they won convincingly in u/16s

VIC U16 MM Big men were outplayed by NSW U16 MM big boys though. This year NSW MM is crap we should be able to win over them easily
