    He's 100% correct about the poor leadership of governing bodies.

    I believe this last line can be used by FUBARU and SNZAAFU to explain this apparent bout of clear thinking common sense

    SuperRugby is rapidly going to become extinct imo. And that is why the new competition that Twiggy's talking about could be an absolute master stroke. If it's planned and organised well (and by heck it will be given all the people Twiggy is bringing in to work on it) and doesn't try to run before it can walk, it will be perfectly placed to take the box seat in the new structure of elite rugby in this region of the Southern Hemisphere.

    I am no longer viewing our removal from SuperRugby as all bad. I think it might prove to be a blessing in disguise and I for one am hugely excited about what the next chapter in WA rugby is about to bring.

    Long live WA and long live rugby in WA

    Whilst I agree with everybody's comments about any proposed return to super rugby, I don't think that means continuing the legal fight is a waste of time.

    At the moment, the ARU are smugly avoiding the issue of Twiggys comp because they feel like they have the upper hand. If we finally get a court to agree that we were shafted, that will open up a legal avenue for us to turn up the heat.

    Once we get the truth out there in court, the ARU will begin to consider allowing it rather than paying us out on losses (18 million sounds like a reasonable number to go for)

    ARU abandons Perth

    If the WA Government cannot get out of funding the Bledisloe Test in Perth in 2019 and the Test does indeed go ahead, then it surely will be the last time that the Wallabies play in Perth for many years to come.

    As WA Premier McGowan has said, the ARU has well and truly dudded the WA Government and the WA Taxpayer, and it would take hard work on the part of the ARU to get a future WA Government to trust them again. John Edwards believes that the WA Rugby Community does not matter to the ARU, and so it is unlikely that the present ARU will make any effort to rebuild bridges with the WA Government and the WA Rugby Community.

    For the next decade or so, it will be politically impossible for a WA Government of any political complexion to spend taxpayers' money on something like a Wallabies test in Perth.

    Oh absolutely GiGS. The off field skullduggery that sees us in this position is a whole other story and a whole different battle front. The Senate inquiry and any potential legal proceedings that arise from that and from other investigations that are going on must also be a key focus for us.

    The ARU model has so many cracks in it that it can't survive. I'm calling Clyne Humpty Dumpty from now on

    The Perth Bledisloe will be a financial disaster for the WA Government.The Premier need to start legal action against the ARU

    Filled up with fuel today, wearing my Force guernsey walking from the bowser to the cash register two people stopped me just to say how terrible they felt about the Force being axed. Completely out of the blue, neither of them known to me.

    Reinforced for me how much support there is in the WA public and how important the media coverage of the situation has been for awareness of the issue in WA. Great to see how many people do care and recognise the injustice done to the Force. Let's hope it can help us transition successfully to a new competition.
