    The WA Women's team would have to be pretty strong in that comp wouldn't it?

    Would WA 7s need help?

    Unlike a certain National sports administrative body who I'm sure is already taking calls about refunds for sold tickets to a game being played this weekend.

    So where are we going to be burning our Wallaby gear? Should have fire pits in front of all gates to dispose of unwanted and tainted products!

    The gate that Cameron Clyne is most likely to enter through.

    Some interesting discussion points from the judge:

    Wonder if the ARU are implementing a scorched earth policy?

    I added content of appeal findings to first post here: http://twf.com.au/showthread.php?t=39340

    F@#K Super Rugby, I'm now a supporter of the new Indo-Pacific comp. I expect we will lose some of our top-tier talent...but we took 12 years to develop the Force into the club it is and we can do it again with the new comp.

    Damn hard watching Hodgo tear up as he spoke, my wife and I were both also in tears watching him speak. Someone as tough as he is breaking down shows just how hard this has been for the players and their families.

    Off buying tickets for this saturday's test purely for the protest value, don't really want to go, but now seeing it as another opportunity to show our support for the Force.

    PS, all our Force gear plus a black armband will probably be the dress code (as suggested by Hodgo)

    Shit I hope AF can get China involved in the new comp, that might secure it financially and places like Fiji and Tonga would ensure great entertainment value
