    Well that is expected when they don't know the definitions of insolvency and debt.

    Either way, Perth locals should keep an eye out for Twiggy's breakaway competition in 2018."[/QUOTE]

    Just had a look at the remnants of the playing roster and by my calculations there will be the grand sum total of one player on that list playing rugby in Perth.
    A few going to Japan, a few trying to get Europe contracts and a couple still trying to get gigs in Super rugby so even if this comp does get off the ground does anyone know who exactly will play in it because I don't.

    Wests Scarborough 1st Grade juggernaut has played finals rugby each and every year since its inception and continues this remarkable feat yet again this season and unbelievably it's still rolling on.

    Don't know what you mean, B and B posted the article on previous page and I went through the 2018 contracted Force roster and arrived at the one player in total off my own bat.

    In regards to the IPRC things will be different in 2019 as the player market will start to open up. There are suggestions that Japan are looking at postponing the Top League due to the RWC, the Force players that have signed EPS or one year contracts will have the option of moving back to Perth (Verity Amm, Mees Erasmus, Naisairani), players often have their contracts end in RWC years and France will have tougher foreign player restrictions (they are talking about fines and points reductions) so players will look to move.

    Brexit will be getting closer so that will close off Kolpak which is an EU law.

    IMHO, Apart from the skull duggery involved in getting rid of the Force the greatest mismanagement in Australian sport is the ARU's piss poor planning for when a team was gone.

    Glad someone in the media has actually identified this. Wish others would actually pick up on it and hold the ARU to account.

    Pretty sure those rankings are in no way official or scientific - there would be Top League teams better than the Sunwolves.

    I get more than the single player.

    While the IPRC or whatever gets going the following players have not committed elsewhere and surely will be looking for some game time:

    Ian Prior )
    Marcell Brache ) These 3 have been very vocal in their support of the IPRC
    Peter Grant )

    Pekahou Cowan )
    Heath Tessman ) Have made no comments about going elsewhere.

    I believe it’s only short term, he’s a fillin as they’re short on 9s. And Pek will be staying, possibly a position with IPRC. Wife’s just had a baby, so I think they would prefer to stay.
    BTW, an article in West today that John Langoulant threatening legal action against Papalia for refusing to cough up info on Barnett deal with the Force.I wonder if this has ties to the Senate inquiry?

    Probably to do with the Government wanting documents for their potential legal action?
