    ROAD SAFETY WESTERN FORCE STATEMENT

    By David Berrie on Mon 10th April 17


    The RugbyWA Board had an unsatisfactory meeting with Australian Rugby Union (ARU) management representatives today that highlighted that the terms of the assessment and process being used to evaluate ourselves and the Rebels were inconsistent and inequitable.

    Discussions also failed to address the responsibilities that exist in the Alliance Agreement between RugbyWA and the ARU and we felt in order to protect our position it was necessary to issue legal proceedings to protect our rights under the Alliance Agreement.

    Initially we had particular concerns about the 72-hour deadline to respond, however we have now been advised that we will have further time to present our business case.

    Today further highlighted the importance of the Own the Force campaign to strengthen our negotiating position with the Australian Rugby Union to ultimately secure the Road Safety Western Force in Perth.

    We urge all supporters who pledged their commitment to now consider becoming a shareholder of the Western Force Owners Ltd.

    In the meantime, we will work with our partners, staff and Government to develop the best possible business case to take to the ARU.

    I can see a bunny recall here .. Were is Andrew denton??? I was right behind him and the bunnies back in the 90s when they got dropped and fought to be reinstated in the courts.. This really red faced the ARL as it was then.. They had to negotiate with the NRL to put them back in.. and they were awarded millions in compensation by the courts..

    When did the premier say that? Was it today?

    Your Board are angry and we will fight to protect our players, refs, community and fans. You have asked us to do that.

    The one who's going to benefit the most in this would probably be Cox, wouldn't it be a strategy to join forces with him and give him an offer that the Force can join him, combining resources to make stand that saves both teams! Surely the ARU board won't be left standing after this week. Kudos Geoff Stoke for speaking up for what's right!

    The government has some meat in this game - $1.5mil for current sponsorship yet to be paid.
