    Ten bucks for two games in the upper tier behind the goals in the South Stand! Can't wait, pulling out the old Western Reds jersey and a France XIII one for good measure!

    Not a bad idea. Hope I don't have to wait that long to exhume my Wallabies gear. Still fighting off the urge to burn them at the stake.

    Speaking of Mungo's; I reckon the IRB will gain some ectra impetus to facilitate the IPRC from the RLWC. The improvement in the PI teams performances will not go unnoticed. Too many Rugby boys going to NRL. Tonga and Fiji in particular have the potential to knock out one of the big 3. Tonga v NZ on Saturday is going to be huge.

    I am actually curious, looking at the Pacific Islands sides, one could make a compelling case that league is now bigger than union, especially looking at Tonga. Certainly, allowing heritage players helps. One wonders what would happen if the Olympic committees of these countries said "RL guys can be included in our Olympic 7s squads"

    Of course, Hayne would still miss out

    Even the rugby league guys say rugby union is still significantly bigger on the islands. Tell you what though, if rugby is not careful, give it 10 years and it could be a different story.

    Thing is ATM there are lots of pro contracts closer to home in NRL as opposed to Super Rugby. BUT with 6 IPRC franchises (to start) there will be more opportunities closer to home. I'm sure the IRB has sussed this out. The current FUARU, OTOH, with their constant reviewing of strategic options as new scenarios open up, are probably gaming ways to scupper it.

    That's rugby league's strength in this region, along with the large uptake of the sport by the Pacific Island diaspora in Australia.

    I would recommend putting up some banners to tell the public what you think of the ARU. The leaguies will give you plenty of sympathy as they don't like the ARU either and it will be on FTA tv with an international feed.
