    $5 million

    So I've just read an article where Mark McGowan claims that it cost the state $5 million to bring Saturdays Wallabies Test to Western Australia.

    Obviously there is a contract in place to hold the 2019 Bledisloe Cup game in Perth but I would imagine after today there won't be a lot of Government assistance to help bring many more Tests to the state.

    PREMIER Mark McGowan hopes a rebel competition set up by mining billionaire Andrew Forrest will cause suffering for the Australian Rugby Union (ARU) after its treatment of WA taxpayers.

    The premier said he hoped Forrest carried out his threat to establish a six-team Indo-Pacific rugby tournament after the Western Force on Tuesday lost a court appeal to remain in Super Rugby.

    “If we’re not successful in keeping the team in, I hope Andrew carries out his threat and I hope it’s successful and I hope that the ARU suffers as a consequence,” the premier told 6PR radio.

    He claimed the ARU had treated fans and taxpayers poorly after the former state government spent more than $100 million providing a home for a WA team.

    SHEPHERD: ‘I’m embarrassed to be a Wallaby’

    “They’ve treated West Australians so badly, and we did so much for them and the taxpayers here put so much effort in, and there’s such a huge fan base, and then they go and dud us.

    “There needs to be consequences for those sorts of things.” Forrest has bankrolled the Force’s legal fight and is considering taking the case to the High Court.

    His previous offer of $50 million to the ARU for the Force’s survival was rejected.

    Meanwhile, Perth will host on Saturday’s Rugby Championship Test between Australia and South Africa at nib Stadium.

    The premier said his government was bound contractually to hold the event but admitted its $5 million price tag was too steep.

    The Premier should arrange for all the freebies and invitations to boxes anticipated by Barnett and his Lib. cronies, for handing out $5.m of taxpayers money, to be redistributed to volunteer entitled rough heads from the local rugby clubs and dozens of loud mouthed, aggressive drunks rounded up from East Perth pubs, so they can share the love with Pulver and his mates.

    Oh ....

    wait ....

    I mentioned this awhile back that if the government has forked out the 5 mill of taxpayers money then taxpayers should get in for free

    I'm too modest to say all, Gunny.

    Occasionally, but rarely, good judges even disagree with me.

    But the list of uninformed and biased judges who've disagreed with you is long and distinguished?

    There is no such thing as an uninformed and biased judge until he or she has retired.

    The only way I can be compared realistically to Rumpole is in respect of the girth of our waists.
