    Not necessarily a bad thing Alison

    But it means we definitely lose our star players and coaches and run a rather second rate competition as a result. All I'm seeing so far is more big wins for the ARU and SANZAAR

    I may be wrong...but I highly doubt it, because I'm an Alison

    Pretty pissweak, I don't think Twiggy read the room. Having a player play for the Rebels then play a short spell with us if they don't make the Wallabies isn't good enough. We still have no proper rugby from February to August. Couldn't give a toss about the Wallabies and their strength in the future.

    Even with ARU recognition we won't have many Wallaby rep's singing on if that's the case. Have to say I'm a little disappointed by that.

    What do the players do from January to May? Work in Twiggy's mines?

    Did Twiggy cut a deal with Clyne?

    I was not expecting much better than that! It is a new comp, you cant expect it to be anywhere close to Super Rugby level. We will lose our stars but will still have a pathway for our young players to make it to the top.
    I don't like the negative vibes at the moment; we have lost our force now and need to get over it.

    Going by what a few people are texting me at the moment it sounds like a glorified feeder competition.

    The bottom line is without ARU and World Rugby imprimatur it won't start

    I'm waiting on the full round up.

    I would have liked to see a new competition, based around the +8gmt timezone. Perth, Tokyo, Singers, Honkers, Beijing, Seoul, Columbo plus a Pacific Island team, Australian Country, NZ Maori for ten teams.

    The only way I see to make it attractive to top players is to throw heaps of money at them and allow dual IPRC/Super Rugby contracts like happens with the Japanese Top League.

    The Wallabies players would obviously be out due to test commitments.

    Be good to find out "which force players" have signed / expressed interest with contracts drawn up -- as according to media reports.
