    I get your point mate, but I don't think Twiggys playing the "keep paying till they say yes game" I think he's making offers they can't refuse in such a way that they will. This is great prizes for the cause in the first part and gold for the legal team in the second part. I assume the 50 mill carried a condition of having to be used for grass roots to flush out the lie that the savings will be spent on grass roots. This one carries the condition that clone must resign, well imho that will never happen, but it sure makes it obvious that this is now a face saving exercise. I say keep it in the news by hook or by crook.

    Surely such an offer has to be taken to the ARU board and not rejected out of hand by Clyne and the two other puppets that he has his hands up the arse of. That's right John Eales, you are nothing more than a puppet destroying Rugby these days.

    I texted Jono last night and said it's reached the point where it's personal between both Forrest and Clyne.

    I reckon Forrest could offer the ARU his entire fortune and Clyne would say no.

    That depends on how confident he is of being able to bully the rest of the board into following his lead. He has NSW in his pocket, because....well he's a Sydney W(b)anker, Qld through Eales the puppet and the rest don't count.

    I've served on committees where one player has that sort of power and they tend towards making increasingly outrageous statements and decisions, knowing that they have no accountability. This will only stop when the law intervenes, because Twiggy has been personally slighted (all the ridiculous comments about "where has he been", when he's been the silent support for the Force all along) and he's now got the bit between his teeth and will not let go until the process concludes.

    I would suggest, looking from the outside that Twiggy has a fuckload more business sense than Patsy Clone as well. He's playing the media like an orchestra at the moment and will keep doing so until this case is won in the court of public opinion, it won't need a court of law at that stage.

    Has anybody heard of the plans for a further legal action should this one fail? I would think that one more wait for a hearing and verdict will get the job done, SANZAaR will have to either cut somebody else or release a 16 team draw by the end of the month or they'll start running into serious scheduling issues.

    There is bound to be a number of cases from players and staff for mental health and suffering and I was wondering if we as members can bring a class action against them for the same?

    GIGS - my understanding is that there is no further avenue of appeal available in relation to the Alliance Agreement case. If we win, the ARU has nowhere to go; and vice versa. I could be wrong though as I'm not a lawyer!

    From everything i have read over the last few weeks i believe there is other legal cases which can be started as well (the "in good faith" case for one). All of which would more than likely be prefaced by injunctions to prevent us actually being cut.

    Wandered down to watch the Rugby league U/18's semi finals tonight because Westie Boy had a few school mates playing and in the major semi 1 v 2 North Beach played South Perth. South Perth started with 9 players and got an injury so game was called off before halftime with North Beach leading 48-nil and you think we've got problems. Another reason why the Force needs to survive.

    Not to hard to figure out why the SG Ball team didn't win a game all season then. If South Perth are struggling they are in deep do-do.

    I didn't realize until quite recently how much Rugby League had shrunk in WA since the 90's. Makes me worry about union to be honest. having said that, I've been pretty impressed with the Ellenbrook Rabbitohs - they've got two fields just down the road from me and on training nights they are pretty full.

    F@ck! With Westie's track record over this saga the coach is going to the Tahs to replace Gibson. You heard it here first.

    Thanks Westie,
    Is his decision based upon generic loyalty to the ideals upon which the Force was built or is there something tangible on it's way?

    Very, very symbolic vote in favour of our future if he stays - at least three of the EARU teams would be desperate to get him, if not all four of them.

    Would also help some undecided players I suspect. Hope you are right Westie!

    Wessels has just signed a 5 year contract to coach Wests Scarborough.

    RugbyWA will pay his wages.

    You heard it here first.
