    All the best Pieter and well done on your work with the local rugby scene, only met once (I think) at but was a pleasure to chat. Good luck and I'm sure the Force will always be with you

    Why the decision to move if I may ask?
    Mate I got a transfer and with the current economical climate and employment uncertainties and limited opportunities in WA I thought it best to move when I was given the opportunity

    It has been a interesting 10 years lots of ups and downs; I did my fair share for the local rugby scene I served as club member of 2 great local clubs(Baysie And Roodogs), helped out as Junior and sometimes senior club coach for 8 of the 10 years I also did a stint as U15 State side junior manager,
    3 years on the WAJRU as executive member and development officer, I saw Junior rugby excel to in excess of 4600 players,
    I also served as Junior Club committee member at Wanneroo - the most successful junior rugby club in WA for as long as I can remember.
    Last but not least I also caused a fair bit of angst among a few( maybe more) rugby people in WA, but it all was done in the name of the game I never rated myself bigger than the game

    I am moving to Brisbane in February so this is causing a bit of an issue with my believes that you support local... If you go and search this forum you will find that apart from the tahs at no1 for disliking a rugby team I feel very much the same for the reds .. well I used to I will now need to change LOL
    The Force will always be my favourite team but the Reds will now have to take the no1 spot when it comes to wearing a rugby jumper does not make sense does it....

    On TWF I have or have used 2 names.. my real name and THEFORCEGUY(and the odd few extra names when I was really frustrated) most people know me by both those,the only reason I had to go stealth was during my time on the WAJRU.

    One thing is for sure I will still pop in here every now and again just to see how you all are going because there is nowhere better to talk about rugby with rugby people than here.
    Talk about pump your own tyres up.

    You missed the bits about causing so much grief at Baysie you bolted to Wanneroo only to ruffle the feathers there as well.

    Plus your track record on the wajru exec leading to major disputation , a failed coup and a 6 week ban from the judiciary for some pretty ordinary behavior at a junior game. Etc.

    Hope the new score board operator at kingsway can count past 30.

    A "moving back to Pretoria" thread would have me more excited.

    Well you'd assume one would be a dry heat. One is most certainly humid. Can't speak for Pretoria
