    Does the senate enquiry have that power! I wish they could. I am so livid with this situation and the fact for the first time I haven't even checked what time the wallabies are playing. I' just don't care and I'm so sad that this is the case..

    For the Rebelsto be competitive they need
    Pek, Jermaine, Heath, Adam, Matt, Ross, Isi, Ben Mac, Ryan, Curtis, Chance, Dane plus afew other and a Coach.

    So if they cant afford both Adam and Dane then this whole exercise has been for nought.

    Tahs thought they were getting Coleman....they got Simmonds hehe

    Sooo, why didn't the rest of the players, you know the ones at Rebels going to be ousted by the far superior Pek, Jermaine, Heath, Adam, Matt, Ross, Isi, Ben Mac, Ryan, Curtis, Chance, Dane kick up a stink? 'coz they are bloody stupid that's why. 5 into 4 doesn't fit.

    That's were I thought RUPA would have taken a bigger stance on this issue .. I thought they represent the player,, So they also have no problem with player going overseas

    After having emailed Julie Bishop some weeks ago, have received this reply:

    Dear Valerie

    Thank you for your email regarding the Western Force.

    I understand that there will be a Senate inquiry into the future of rugby union in Australia in a motion led by Senator the Hon Linda Reynolds, Liberal Senator for Western Australia. The Community Affairs References Committee will put rugby union under the microscope and report by 13 November 2017.

    The termination of the Western Force’s participation in the Super Rugby competition is a loss for Western Australia. Sport is a fundamental part of the Western Australian way of life bringing both revenue and community engagement to our State.

    Thank you for writing to me about this important issue.

    Best wishes

    Julie

    The Hon Julie Bishop MP
    Federal Member for Curtin
    Deputy Leader of the Liberal Party
    Minister for Foreign Affairs

    Perth 08 9388 0288 | Canberra 02 6277 7500
    www.juliebishop.com.au
    www.foreignminister.gov.au

    Am hoping that not only the Senate inquiry but also some Wa Gov pressure will be applied.

    You can listen live via the Parliament website Lou. Not sure what the format is for an initial hearing.

    I'm two minds as to attend or not. I'm sure a senate hearing will be as exciting as watching paint dry whilst at a dentist appointment, on the other side of the coin it gets me out of work for the morning...

    Lucky I'm not in charge of the format. I'd make it a firing squad.

    that is awesome. I was going to head in to hear Pulver's lies but now the people in the office will just have to listen to me saying 'Bastard' and W^nk@r for no apparent reason.
