    I rung ARU office yesterday to be told everyone is in Meetings.. I reckon they all in meetings with future employers as I think in the next 2 months they all could be looking for new jobs.. I was going to be smart and asked the receptionist for te CEO job application form.. She may not have got the joke lol

    Give them a call on 02 8005 5555.. and ask if anyone there needs a hug... or a friend to talk to ...

    Are the ARU actually saying anything anymore?

    I wonder if we called the office would anyone actually answer and or speak my mental picture is they are so gaged that it resembles the set of 50 shades of grey at St Leonard's.

    Sorry rambling posts.
    With all the legal action that's about to rain down on them they've probably all been gagged for fear of prejudicing the ARU's case!

    A tad late for that? Didn't Alan Jones harass the Chairman into spilling a few of their beans?

    They will arrive with 30 pieces of silver. The question is will Rugby WA hold?

    THE Western Force are growing more confident of remaining in Super Rugby after advice from lawyers, and will likely meet the ARU next week to present their case.

    However, the fact remains that if Melbourne Rebels owner Andrew Cox refuses to sell his licence, legally the ARU cannot remove them, leaving the Force as the only option.

    What the Force are banking on is a backflip from SANZAAR on the 15-team competition, to restore it to the 18 teams it has now.

    Perth officials believe they can exhaust enough money and time through legal avenues that the ARU will cave on their decision to remove a team, and they believe their South African counterparts in similar situations will do the same.

    But remaining with 18 teams and the same format, identified as financially suicidal by SANZAAR, would kill much of the already dwindling interest in Super Rugby now it has become clear that officials think it is second rate.

    Does anyone else get the feeling that the East Coast franchises and their media mouth-pieces are totally bewildered by the Western Force's unwillingness to "take one for the team"?

    I highly doubt Pandaram talked to any Perth Officials. He is trying to make a case to defend his own cheerleading on the EARUs assumed demise of the Force. He thinks if its repeated enough, more people will believe it.

    I really do wonder if they genuinely thought we were a bunch of halfwits over here who wouldn't get what the ARU bag carriers were telling us and would roll over after bowing to their obviously superior intelligence! 🙄
