FOR Pirates number 6 Jimmy Schwager, the 2019 Central North season has been an education on and off the field.

The Year 12 Calrossy student has been a regular starter in his debut first-grade season, but has also received tutoring off the field from teachers-turned-teammates Conrad Starr and Bart Leach.

"To have those guys around, both at the club and at school, has been massive for me," Schwager told the Leader.

"I am really wanting to get the textbook stuff a number 6 does down pat and those guys have been awesome in helping me do that."

Playing 100 games for a club is a special milestone and for Narrabri's James, Daniel and Sam Kahl it is an honour they now all share.

Against Inverell on Saturday, Sam became the latest Blue Boar to inscribe their name on the 100-game honour board.

In doing so he joined his father (and current club president) James (154) and brother Daniel (107*) in the annals of the club's history.

They are the third father and son centurions for the club following Jack (231) and Luke Findley (155*), and Peter (147) and Matt McDonnell (136*).

Daniel reached 100 games last year against Pirates.

Hi friends, I suppose most have heard that I have stood aside for the election following public disclosure of a post I made on a Port Arthur conspiracy site on FB, 8 months ago. The Greens found it difficult to refute in this stage of the election which I understand. I really do apologise to all of you who have helped me get this far.

It appears I was targeted by a journo from The Australian using a firm who does handle searches on social media etc, not sure who they are. I really don't think the tragedies of the past need rehashing like this in public view and it must grieve families and survivors of the tragedy to see it being discussed like some political football. I also apologise to those people who are affected in this way, very much.
