    NSW Rugby deserves to benefit from Super Rugby team being cut: Roger Davis

    http://www.smh.com.au/rugby-union/un...12-gvjlnd.html
    Yeah, today was the first time I'd seen that article as well via GAGR

    New South Wales Rugby Union and Waratahs chairman Roger Davis believes chopping a Super Rugby team is the right decision because it will give NSW the slice of revenue pie they deserve to put into grassroots.

    "I'm unequivocally selfish in this," Davis said. "Focusing on NSW and my colleagues to the north in Queensland, we've got 80 per cent of the players, 80 per cent of the Super players, they all come from NSW and Queensland and that's where we believe any community funding should be directed."



    Can you believe this guy - rhetorical question.. It's very easy to believe and this attitude is why Australian rugby is in the shit.

    Jo Hodgson has been pretty vocal on social media about the extra $2.5m that the Waratahs get to pay their players in the form of Wallaby Top up that do not come under the salary cap.

    As someone may have said, therein lays the problem with Australian Rugby at present. About 11 Tahs players are paid large sums of money to play for the Wallabies. Therefore the mindset at the Waratahs is that its just a warm up to the big dance later in the year.

    And I believe there is contractual pressure for Wallaby coaches to play or at least have in the squad, players who have been contracted by the ARU but who the coach would have never picked.

    What happens to Super Rugby if private investors are encouraged to come in and are allowed open-slather to buy and pay for any players they want, no salary caps or restrictions?

    This bullshit arrogant entitlement attitude is EXACTLY what is most wrong with rugby union in Australia and while it persists we will always play a minor role compared to sports that have adopted a more modern, national focus, e.g. AFL, soccer and now the NRL.

    These people are actually destroying the game they profess to love, not only does that speak to their insular arrogance, but surely also to a lack of basic bloody intellect.

    ...money should be given to NSW and Queensland given they are the heartbeat of rugby in Australia...

    can't have a heartbeat if you ain't got no heart - certainly didn't show much this year ..
