    The trouble with Mr Fitzsimon's argument is that the ARU will not take a dollar of Andrew's money, nor will they entertain a merger really.

    No, the trouble with Mr fitzsimons argument is that it is backed up by exactly zero cogent thought.

    Can't name five teams in the indo-pacific region.

    We'll people have been doing it for weeks, but I'll have a crack.

    Fiji, Samoa, Tonga, Singapore, Hong Kong, China, the 14 professional teams playing in Japan, Korea (south and for the jokes terse north)

    Is that 5?

    The Force players won't stay around for the comp? Well according to recent reports the last thing they will do is play for the rebwls

    So what are they going to do?

    A merger between the eels and the force, funded by Twiggys infamous 50 mill?

    I wouldn't go to the games on principle now, and I would think Twiggys money is firmly off the table anyhow.

    I agree that Australian Rugby can't afford a costly civil war. The problem is, the ARU are the ones who are broke and they've started a war with the 6th richest man in the country. They don't have the huevos to roll with him and they don't have the common sense to apologise.

    Peter Fitzsimons helps nothing by spouting the ignorance of a man who gets his information from the Daily Telegraph

    In his own book, his own words, he describes how he wrongly attacked certain players in "The Rugby War"

    Well Fitz where the fuck was your call for unity when the ARU wanted to kill off a State... oh wait you also when it comes ro rugby in Aus cant look past NSW let alone Sydney.

    It doesnt have to be in competition but complimentary to Aus Rugby. You know WA 3rd highest playing base in Australia. (Hint its near where the batavia sunk)

    Pull your head out of your arse.

    Peter Fitzsimmons did his best work on the original Back Page hosted by the great Mike Gibson. Week after week Fitzsimons tried to dominate the discussion, talking over guest panelists, spouting his opinions on anything and everything he knew bugger all about then eventually turning the topic to Rugby. But the highlight was always watching Gibbo's wry smile as Billy Bermingham relentlessly took the piss. All the while with Fitzsimmons being so busy thinking what to interrupt with next, that it all flew well over his big head. Great entertainment.

    "My view is that in the face of a documented disaster looming, the board of the ARU simply had to prune a Super Rugby franchise and after going through all the figures came to the highly reluctant conclusion that the Force were the one*who had to go."

    Seriously, the man cannot be that nave????


    "The ARU, urgently, must look again at a Rebels/Force merger, to be named, yes, as I've previously floated, "the Rebel Force",*but here's the kicker. All of NSW, Queensland and Brumbies would for the good of rugby agree to cede their home games to the new team, meaning that both Perth and Melbourne could have half-a-dozen home games each..."

    Ohh... he is!

    It's just that Aussie Pete doesn't recognize the non-colonial inhabitants of the indo - pacific region, what with Kokoda, and the fall of Singapore, aaaaargh the flashbacks, it's Malaya all over again. After this breathless announcement Fitzsimons stumbled into the ARU, mortally wounded - his last words - Light Blue jumper good, dark blue jumper baad, got to stop them - shute shield, it's the only waaay, his red doilie fell off his head, revealing the remnants of 20 or so botched plug transplants, a tattood map showing the way to Coogee Oval, and the massive spreadsheet everyone had been looking for.

    Fitzy would be calling for unity and handing out a bouquet even as the enemy were throwing grenades at him

    He's big noting, condescending and uninformed. I hope Twiggy gives him the boot on the life story project.

    I'm a bit fed up with a few people in suits from NSW dictating what's best for "Australian Rugby". What Twiggy is proposing is far bigger than just Australian Rugby, it's for the good of the game for the whole region and indeed internationally. It is what's needed, and the idea of incorporating women's rugby and sevens as a package deal is just brilliant, and future proofing the game.

    This is all far bigger than the traditional narrow minded approach, which quite frankly is no longer acceptable and needs to change.
