    World Rugby Has anyone heard their take on the saga,,

    I have been looking thru some of the laws and requirements of how World Rugby works and what they can do to help WF in getting Twiggies League up and running,, I want to move forward and after chatting to a friend who was very high up in NZRU back in the early 2000 . His take on this debacle is that the new league has a good chance as he thinks the ARU have handled this in a very unprofessional manner, He said I should read articles from World Rugby re this ,, One thing that does stand out is the World Rugby,,, Spirit of Rugby,,,,http://www.worldrugby.org/spirit-of-rugby ...Also Interesting reading is the World rugby investment brochure,, file:///C:/Users/Tony/Downloads/World_Rugby_Investment_Programmes_brochure.pdf


    All in all I do think its time to move on and back Twiggy and let the others deal with the ECRU as I am sure World Rugby won't be impressed with the ARU present saga and how its been handled.

    One thing is for sure, World Rugby would not have turned up their nose at $50m. For that matter, not a single sport in the world would....except a bankrupt ARU

    I have written a letter to WORLD RUGBY.. I got an automated reply last Tuesday saying due to the large number of emails recieved it may take a while for a reply.. I am tempted to phone them to get direct email to Brett Gosper , Bill Beaumont.. and Brett Robinson.. I think they may have known about the Culling of the Force but I am not sure they know boths of the story.. Maybe Hansie could advise on this..

    Clyne and Gosper - both Melbourne old boys to be specific... But as Alison said, Bill Beaumont should keep impartiality in check.
