    Force are doing the same on 14 July, check your inbox for the invite if you were a Foundation Member.


    Neither my wife nor I have heard anything about this, have other people received invites?

    Good call, always expect the unexpected...... maybe you have discovered the reason those players are leaving - McGahan is off, because Wessells is in, Inman is off because Meakes is in, Deb is off because DHP is in.

    This is fun.

    I like how they mentioned it is 'desirable' for qualifications but doesn't mention particular experience being needed.

    Richard Graham is a shoe in, just drop the experience that may look poorly and he is good to go.

    It says you need 3 referees, and the way Graham used to bad-mouth them after a loss, due you think he can get three to support him?

    He is in Georgia at the moment right? A few bags of Georgian Lari will do the trick around those parts.

    They are all consipracy theories, very popular on this site, I don't involve myself in them. Rebels players leaving suggests it is a normal transfer to another club for more dough, possibly in concert with the fact they have been told for one reason or another- no future for you (individually) here. I agree with the OP, it's a chance. I suppose the fact that they have advertised the position is some form of "cunning plan"as well.

    I haven't received emails from RWA for a while now. I think the ARU has buggered up the email lists!

    Alison you couldnt be further from the truth, a professional organisation such as the ARU could not make such a mistake...

    Weird, we received the invitation to the Captain's run but that was in an email with stuff about the Nathan Sharpe medal and Hodgos shirt.

    I would be with Ali on this one, after they sent 33,000 invites to our Members Forum they have obviously messed around with their database and this could well be the result.

    Here is the RSVP link
