    There is a deafening silence from Rugby WA about the "Own the Force" initiative.

    Nothing to stop you putting your hand in your pocket Transiting.

    And the Rebels appear to feel that Private Ownership will save them, I'm not so confident.

    Let alone that fact that it is monumentally stupid to reduce the number of teams to four when the Force is just starting to see the benefit of their pathway growing and the Rebels are 5 years away from that!

    The powder Blue mob from over east are scared the Force in yrs to come( maybe 5 to 10 yrs time) are going to be whipping the arse of the Tahs if we are kept in the comp.. This is also posted by me in another post..There is a lot of people over east pointing the Gun at the force.. I spoke to someone on the group about this and why his answer was The NSWRFU top brass are lobbying that the WA team goes.. I asked this person honestly for a reason why and his answer was .. The NSWRFU think the growth of WA rugby has to potential to derail NSW and QLD as being a threat in providing great players to the national team and them loosing their MOJO..

    How is this going to happen when we can only get 2 selected for the Australian U20's?

    Interesting. Which "group" are you referring to? I have always thought that NSW people were anti-Force because they see our slice of the TV carve up is a pile of cash that could be going their way. Ridiculous but that is the way they talk. I'd never considered they see WA as a threat in terms of player depth.

    Shasta I posted this and on the WFT is with Australian Rugby FB page The NSW folk have this thing about informing everyone that the NSWRFU supply 90% of all super rugby players.. When I broke down the Force team and its origins It upset a few people that WA was producing local players... As soon as I mentioned this all the NSW brigade came out firing shots at why the Force should go..Many said that if the force go it would not disrupt the basis of the east coast teams as many would not come east and move back to SA or head north.. Which I think is true and very sad for Australian rugby.. If the Rebels or Ponies get canned or merged then they will have to find jobs for all the NSW and QLD players in these teams..
