    $1250/hour to promote road safety - seems like a good deal to me!

    A good start to the season. Hopefully on field results will follow suit.

    I though the 1200 hours sounded like quite a bit extra of time for the team outside of rugby. But with ~ 40 players and coaches, its 30 hours per person. Not a too onerous deal over a season\year. Plus it will get the Western Force name out and about in the wider community for a bit of free advertising.

    Yes, my thoughts as well. Very much a win/win for the Force. I really don't see this as anything much to do with an election cash splash. That would be pretty much trying to convert the already converted.

    Hmm ... Wests will have to do some maintenance on those cars they've been handing out ...

    Whatever can be grabbed from this government's dying, rigour mortis ravaged fingers is a good thing.

    Better have the cheque in hand before March though.

    Oh, and I think the incoming administration may just pardon the lads from their Community Service Orders.

    I wouldn't read TOO much into the "biggest deal in aussie rugby" line either. It's posted as the biggest 12 month deal.... Not sure that it has very many to compete against.

    Does anybody in the know have an idea how it competes with all the current deals on a per-year basis?

    I wasn't so much thinking of it as an election cash splash - more that had they not got it signed off before the start of caretaker mode, they would not have been able to get it done until after the election as the caretaker convention would not have allowed it. And if we have a new government post 11 March, they might not have wanted to use the road safety budget on sponsoring rugby union! Timing is everything!

    No. But another poster hinted at that.

    "Political rivals slam $1.5m RugbyWA deal

    The Barnett Government has thrown Western Force a lifeline after striking a $1.5 million sponsorship deal with RugbyWA to promote road safety. But former Liberal turned independent Rob Johnson has blasted the deal, warning that vital road safety funds were being used to prop up an ailing rugby team.

    In one of the Barnett Government’s last acts before issuing the election writs, Deputy Premier Liza Harvey announced a 12-month deal for the Road Safety Commission to partner with RugbyWA.

    etc"

    Welcome to modern politics. The newspapers must begin preparing headlines as soon as either party makes an announcement. "so-and-so slams whatever the other guy said"
