    I don't think that would help our case; but I really do feel like telling F U ARU!

    This decision has been made. We are only going along on the ride now. I no longer care if they decide we stay or go (yes I do want to stay), the point is that this miss management of the game we love has to stop!! We can't go through this again in 2020 if we stay. We need change!

    There is more potential in melb and perth for the growth of rugby , and that is where the Brumbies and the Rebels need to merg and maybe save the Force
    Im not sure where i said i was a Pulver fanboy. I've been very vocal on GAGR on what a shamozzle the ARU have turned this into and have called for the removal of the CEO and the ARU board due to their incompetence on this matter. Not to denegrate this forum but to do the same here would be akin to preaching to the choir. The east coast needs to hear what we think and GAGR is where ive been posting my thoughts aswell as in emails to the ARU, Foxtel and the journos who push the anti Force rhetoric.

    Rugby - Cutting team won't solve Australian woes: ex-ARU boss

    MELBOURNE (Reuters) - The Australian Rugby Union must protect the nation's five Super Rugby teams even if it means forging a new competition with sides from New Zealand and Asia and limiting South Africa's involvement, former ARU Chairman Peter McGrath has told Reuters.

    "It appears that the statement put out by the ARU on the 28/3/2017 in regards to Super Rugby future is not entirely honest and designed to mislead the rugby following public. According to journalist Jamie Pandaram of The Daily Telegraph "A TOP SECRET proposal has been drafted by the ARU that summarises how a 15-team Super Rugby tournament would work next year, and it does not involve the Western Force". I am disappointed and disillusioned that the ARU has decided to support the interests of rugby in other countries, such as Japan, Argentina and South Africa over the needs of Australian rugby.

    The ARU needs to follow up and make a definitive statement that says regardless of the decision in South Africa, Australia will not be cutting a Super Rugby Team. To not do so will only prove that the ARU and it's Board's action in this matter is duplicitous."


    I don't suppose it will do any good, but I feel better for doing so.
    It has now been over a week and I have not got any reply to my email from the ARU other than an acknowledgement of it's receipt. Today is the perfect opportunity for them to say that they are not going to wait for the Soutrh African Government or SARU to make any announcements on Super Rugby as they have had plenty of time and that Australia will be keeping all five of it's Super Teams. It appears the ARU thought process is if we ignore it then the problem will go away.

    It should be noted that the article scribe wrote that. It wasn't by Peter McGrath, who is pro-5 teams (in the article at least). He even mentioned a study earlier in life, suggesting jettisoning South Africa and having a competition in the region (Aus, NZ and Asian teams).

    Make then A4, easier to handle

    I can't think of a professional printer who would be able to do one in time.
