    Injunction / Appeal hearing - Rugby vs ARU! 23.08.2017

    Time for a new thread? Biggest day in our short history?

    Like Hodgo my love for the greatest game on earth is waning.

    I know the fight is not completely over if it goes against us...... but, FFS we deserve a win.

    May the rugby gods favour us today

    Got to say, I like Hodgo, have pretty much lost the last bit of love! If today doesn't give us a win I hope the WA government goes in all guns blazing in total bankrupt's the FUARU and the whole frigging AU Super 4 collapse because the silence coming from the other teams and players has been bloody deafening!

    I love the game, but at present I am not sure that I would like to see Australian rugby controlled by the ARU in Perth again, I reckon the WF games will be watched very closely by officials and we will reffed out of games.. I am all for the move to bring Asian games to Perth.. I have no trust in the management of rugby in Australia

    Force sweat out decision on axing appeal
    Justin Chadwick
    Wednesday, 23 August 2017 1:37AM

    The ARU are set to be on the receiving end of a fresh wave of criticism after knocking back a mind-blowing financial offer from billionaire Andrew Forrest.
    Forrest offered the ARU tens of millions of dollars to pump into Australian rugby, but on one condition - they reverse their decision to axe the Force.
    But the governing body is refusing to budge, with the matter now set to be decided in the courts.

    RugbyWA, backed by Forrest, will find out on Wednesday whether their right to appeal the axing in the NSW Supreme Court will be granted.
    If it is, the appeal itself is set to be heard on the same day, with a final decision expected to be handed down by next week.

    RugbyWA will argue the ARU had no right to axe the Force under the terms of the alignment deal that was struck last year.
    In that deal, which was effectively a takeover, the ARU guaranteed the Force's future until at least the end of the broadcast deal in 2020.
    But the ARU successfully argued in arbitration that the broadcast deal has since been renegotiated, given the competition will go from 18 teams down to 15.
    With the broadcast deal tweaked because of the fewer number of teams, the ARU claim they were within their rights to axe the Force.
    The Cheetahs and Kings were also axed as part of the shake-up, with the South African franchises joining Europe's Pro14 competition.
    The size of Forrest's offer to the ARU has stunned the rugby public. Some quote the figure as being as much as $50 million.
    Forrest also guaranteed to bankroll any potential future losses by the Force.
    But the ARU said they couldn't reinstate the Force because SANZAAR had already eliminated a 16-team Super competition for a number of reasons.
    "These factors included the extensive cost and limited appeal of a 16-team round-robin competition, player welfare issues due to extra travel requirements, and the loss of popular home and away 'derbies' in each country," ARU chairman Cameron Clyne said.
    "We were genuinely appreciative of Andrew's generous offer to back the Western Force and Australian Rugby.
    "However, given the position we are in, we are unable to work towards retaining five teams in Super Rugby."
    If the Force's appeal is unsuccessful, Forrest has pledged to start up a new international rugby competition that will see the Force compete with teams from Asia.

    I've gotta say, winning this appeal and getting back to rugby would be nice, ut the vindictive sangroper in me kind of hopes that we lose the appeal and have a reason to rain hell fire down upon those arseholes from the east!

    So why were none of these considerations when they expanded to 18 teams?

    The irony is Geoff Stook opposed the expansion and was steamrolled.

    Western Force win right to appeal axing
    Mark Russell
    Wednesday, 23 August 2017 8:35AM

    A NSW Supreme Court judge has granted the Western Force the right to appeal the Australian Rugby Union's decision to axe the team from the Super Rugby competition.
    Justice David Hammerschlag said on Wednesday he had read written submissions from both the Force and the ARU and he believed an appeal should be heard.
    The judge said he would go straight into hearing the appeal on Wednesday.
