    NRL ex players having a go at Super Rugby

    This takes the cake, Newscorp stoop to new low ( bearing mind their interest in NRL) pop this article about NRL players trashing the super comp with limited facts and telling us off how bad it is.

    The usual ignorance and arrogance. They got one thing right though - the ARU has been an extremely poor guardian of the game.

    The fact that we are even talking about chopping one franchise says to me that the ARU has failed miserably. The entire Board and executive should be thoroughly ashamed. They have been shown up by every rival code, and revealed to be the gormeless, ball-less puppets of the Sydney rugby network that they are.

    Not sure Mark Geyer or Matty Johns are the thoughtful, considered spokespersons upon whose opinion things should be relied upon.

    Matt Johns says the western force is losing heaps of money and the rebels are getting Pummelled continually?

    Do they even do any research? The rebels were reasonably successful last year and the force were getting rodgered and the force are possibly on the best financial ticket in aussie rugby (certainly will be if own the force meets expectations)

    OMG they are getting worse and worse..... Paul Cully is an absolute muppet! With his ridiculous philosophy we might as well go down to only a couple of teams Tahs and Reds and we would then suddenly be world beaters like the All Blacks are and regain the Bledisloe.

    They are so interested in themselves that they fail to realise that they are responsible for their own failures and poor recruitment.

    Bloody ignorant Mungos!

    Funny thing is these dribbling neanderthals are saying the same things as a shedload of intelligent, well educated ex-Wallabies from their neck of the woods. Weird or what?

    You call Papworth intelligent? I guess in relation to Matt Johns he is, but that isn't a high bar.

    If getting beaten by big scores and losing buckets of money then both of John's former NRL clubs (Knights and Sharks) would have been cut a while ago.
