Another GPS softie when it comes to real rugby.
He went to Knox, actually.
Knox is more GPS, than the GPS
I'd argue that some of the CAS schools (Cranbrook, Knox, Barker etc) are softer and more twatish than their GPS counterparts. Waverly was probably the exception to the rule.

When I was at school in Sydney, Cranbrook were generally considered to be the softish, most stuck-up pricks in the city. They looked down at most GPS students for being a bit rough and poor.

Yeah. There’s that old gag..

‘If you can’t get a girl, get a Cranbrook boy’

Ha ha…ha

With all the new money in the Eastern suburbs now, them and Scots have become de rigeur. The old money aspect has died away a bit
The old money prefer to get into Grammar or Shore now.

I wouldn't know. I am the product of the public system. They're all toffs to me.

He went to Fort Street, where he no doubt spending his High School years writing poetry, banging smart left-leaning artsy girls and taking LSD. Or am I just stereotyping?

Mini KG is at Barker (yr12) - Mirco KG goes next yr (first yr fully co-Ed).

Not sure at the league scholarships nor the nouveau riche. Barker is a very different school from other ones around here - especially Knox, PLC, Abbotsleigh and Ravenswood. Obviously that is my perception.

Shore is def the tough one to get into and most selective ...

Shore are shit at rugby though.

The last wallabies squad had more players from Manly Selective than Shore.
