    Though I won't be there, I'm warming to the concept of a halftime walk out!
    1. Players know they were supported
    2. Media get their footage
    3. ARU see the 1/4 full stadium in the second half

    Sounds good...perhaps we can track down a genset, projector & screen and watch the remainder outside the stadium, or head over to the Brissy to watch & enjoy a bevvie

    You can't always get what you want.............

    Andrew Forrest initially spent a lot of money on legal battles trying and get the Big Iron Ore Miners to let him lease capacity on their Pilbara railway lines. He had a part victory but not what he needed to get things really moving. I reckon that's what he referenced when he said he knows what bullies look like. Did he quit or did he build his own railway and then go on to be the most efficient and cost effective producer? A Pyrrhic victory for the Two big producers IMO. Had they been more reasonable they could probably have effectively limited FMG's overall impact due to railway capacity saturation factors. Though he'd likely have solved that problem as well eventually.

    With his contacts and personal savvy in matters Asian a pro Rugby set up should not prove any more difficult.

    I have thought a bit about why we are so disappointed with the events of the past six months. I realised we have actually been disappointed with the ARU's treatment since about 2007. Most of us saw a long time ago that Super Rugby is on a downwards slide. Personally I'm well over it already. I feel like my only real disappointment is not being able to see how far this excellent group of players and coaches could have gone. It's inevitable that we will lose a lot of them. I wish them well. How many Rugby WA (or whoever runs the team) can keep will depend on what further acts of bastardry the current ARU are prepared to land on them.

    I still want to see those treacherous bastards questioned under oath. Most in the East will move on pretty quickly from this so I hope Clyne, Eales and Robinson in particular get their names dragged through the mud in public to the extent their positions become untenable. Clyne was once again arrogantly bullish about the strength of his position today. Sure doesn't forget bombing out out on a job interview easily.

    I'm still never watching Super Rugby any more. Nor Wallaby Tests - for the foreseeable future, while the current liars are still stinking up their new offices anyway. I'm feeling good about what might develop for WA Rugby though, and will be a supporter and hopefully a member again.

    I'm done, after being involved in Rugby in WA from the time I arrived in WA in 1977, as a player (club and state), coach (club and state) and parent of rugby playing children I will not watch the Wallabies play against anyone other than my country of birth. I will also never watch an Australian team play Super Rugby unless it is against the team I have supported since Super Rugby started.

    Boycott the Bledisloe in 2019

    It sounds like the WA Government is contractually bound to fund the Bledisloe Cup test in Perth in 2019 to the tune of $5,000,000, in spite of the perfidious and unconscionable treatment meted out by the EARU to the government and to the people of WA.

    I would imagine however that 2019 will be the last time for many years that we will see a Wallabies side play a test in Perth, even if the present rage against the EARU is not maintained. It will be a long time before any WA government of any political complexion is able to trust the EARU again.

    People in WA can be great haters, with long memories, especially of anything which shows an Eastern States bias.

    "Boycott the Bledisloe" in 2019 has a nice ring to it, don't you think?

    This will be the last Wallabies game I attend. I will be in Blue and will cheer on the Boks! I will probably also cheer every time a Force player touches the ball, clears out or makes a great tackle. It will be hard.
    What I would like to see is the whole stadium empty at half time! This is not a slight at the players but to show the FUARU in what contempt they are held.

    I got tickets from a workmate who'd purchased them earlier but can't go anymore - that eases my conscience RE tipping money into ARU coffers.

    I'll be wearing blue obviously - will sing the anthem but not sure after that.

    So what is the GO for the game, aside from wearing blue & chanting..are we planning a walk out (of the stadium or onto the field), turn our backs or start clapping at a certain time in the game?? Should we all arrive at NIB at 5 and start a protest and walk in after the siren has sounded for kick off.....We should cement our position and get everyone on board to get maximum effect...

    Perhaps repeat what we did at the last Force game which is plan to do something at the 7 minute mark??? General consensus?
