    Clyne & Pulver have already stated this is the first opportunity they've had to cut a franchise, because the broadcaster will allow it under the current deal (signed 2015) that expires in 2020.

    I don't see how they could have come to a decision that is adverse to their broadcast contract without first discussing it with the broadcaster.

    ARU are sweet with that and decide The Force have to go.
    Force say "But what about our agreement! We're calling in the lawyers!"
    ARU are all "Oh no! Now what? No plan B!"
    Exactly.

    It's a case of dumb & dumberer meeting beavis & butt-head.

    ARU thought, easy one. Cut the franchise we currently hold the license for, broadcaster keeps paying same amount, and we have extra cash.

    Hold a 72hr decision period for PR to cover the decision that had already been made.

    But forget to ask the lawyers, forget to check to accounts (off all franchises), forget to check state registration numbers, forget to talk to state governments, and forget to remember the rugby community know a little bit about the rugby community.

    The funny thing is that Ep with all the threats and bluster that Cox was blowing about his rights, he's been strangely quiet on carrying through with suing the ARU. Either he's waiting for the dust to settle or he gave Puller an ultimatum to sort it out and thinks it's under control.
