QLD GPS: Ladder position not a true reflection of IGS’s worth

By ANT BRAND

Ipswich Grammar School’s current standings near the bottom of the table isn’t quashing their confidence ahead of Saturday’s must-win Round Four GPS First XV clash with Churchie.

IGS sit seventh of nine teams after three rounds, but it’s not a true reflection of their calibre after strong displays against competition leaders Nudgee College and Brisbane Boys Grammar in the past fortnight.

IGS lost those matches 21-0 and 49-20 respectively, but fared much better in their trials in overcoming Brisbane State High 26-0 and Brisbane Grammar School 50-15.

Add in their Round One 31-12 win over Toowoomba Grammar and it’s obvious IGS are of far better quality than their current ladder position suggests.
