    I dont think RA had much choice as the NRC is an RA sactioned comp. I think Robinson is hypocritical in saying youngsters need their heroes in view, what about the kids in WA who have had their heroes taken away from them!

    Some might argue that, after their earlier intransigence, it was disingenuous for RA to brief a journalist with information implying it was Mindaroo delaying agreement.

    Agree absolutely. You can imagine the scene.
    Castle: Forrest says he doesn't need us. What are you going to do about it Cameron.
    Clyne: Robbo get onto this. Make same nice noises but don't be condescending.
    Robinson: Wayne mate. Got a good story for you. It's exclusive.
    Clyne: Good job Robbo. That will shut the mongrels up in the west for a while. Now how do we get that $70 million.

    What a shitshow. All that farting around just to get to the realisation that Australian players should be allowed to represent Australia. Slow clap for Clown and Co.

    So they have said they support the IPRC - not. Wallaby eligibility for a comp they havenít sanctioned - more of the same.

    This is great news. The big challenge now though will be ensuring the other teams are all strong enough to be at the same level as the Force otherwise it will hold no interest.

    They will need to sign the likes of Dan Carter or South Africans or Aussies who might not care about playing for the Wallabies.

Hodge is not the answer he is too stiff with his passing and muscle bound to play 10. Shifting some of that off my affect his ball running which is his strength.

    Having one 10 long term in match day squads is not going to work.
    Cheika has an abundance of 10s in Australia.

    Three more tens will play Super Rugby this year than he believes he needs.

Whether playing for the Force or one of the other teams in the IPRC the players will be seen on free to air tv and rugby can finally emerge out of the FOXTEL shadow.
    Maybe, maybe not. We must remember, Cheika has been loyal to a select number of players regardless of their capability or performance for the entirety of their career. I can't imagine that will change just because some players are sick of trying to qualify for a position where the KPI is that your name is Bernard Foley and you are still breathing. The same exists in various positions but Foley is the most glaring one, He can play like stale piss and still be locked in for every match he's fit. If Cheika could clone him, he would.

    Seeing as nobody want QC it would be ironic if he ended up playing for the IPRC a whilst being paid by the FURA to stay fit until IPRC find him a team which would have to be the Force if the Clown 🤡 wants him in the Wallabies!

    Apart from the parasite de Clyne what has Sydney Uni got to do with that announcement?

    As for Wayne he does come out with stuff but still hits the mark.

    Lance who is supposed to be off to Worcester come August? Then you have Hawera the unqualified Kiwi, Leiliifano struggling with his general play kicking, Foley won't get dropped and Debcrezeini who was apparently let go by the Rabble.

    Huh? I mean the Robinson whoís the Deputy Chair of Ratís Arse & who Wayne got his info from in the article at the start of this thread. Wayne made it sound as though it was all systems go on the IPRC front and that RA had removed the roadblocks. But itís obvious from the article on the RAís own site (that I posted a link to above) that nothing has changed.
