    Third question, would you go if RA gets a slice of the profits

    Maybe, depends on the deal

    Probably if it was in Perth

    No freaking way. That's why I didn't say definitely to the previous question

    Lets just assume that RA get sweet FA. I would expect that any of these proposed fixtures will involve Minderoo having to foot the bill. They are not going to come racing all the way over here to play the Force at their own expense now ae they?

    Hmmm to watch The Western Force players and coach in another jersey, one they didnt actively choose but was foisted on them, to have our team ripped from us and then have them come to Perth to rub it in our faces.

    Id rather we versed other teams, this seems too soon

    It would be a hard one to win. Normally that would not be sufficient reason not to play, however I am not interested in giving RA any reason to say they did the right thing. No No No.

    Anyone from other countries is probably fine, including the Sunwolves. But playing any Australian team would be a strategic blunder for mine.

    I would like some clarification as to who exactly is going to Melbourne tomorrow. Is it people from RugbyWA or is it people from Minderoo? They are two separate entities with separate agendas.

    As I understand it, RugbyWA is looking after community rugby, the Force Foundation and the NRC team. Minderoo is dealing with getting a professional team back up and running in WA. If the aim is for the Rebels to play an exhibition game against the Force Mark II in June, then I see that as a Minderoo matter. So, why is the media saying the Chair of RugbyWA and the ex-Western Force CEO will be in Baden's box tomorrow night? Surely they mean Minderoo staff???

    I am confused!!

    Yes. And I would go to the match if I was in Perth.

    We are bigger than bitterness. We don't want to be the jaded ex-boyfriend/girlfriend. We want to be the transformed hottie that does not care what the others do/did and are happy with how things are going for us. We want to be big enough that the Rebels are just another team. Given the choice of flexing the Western Force's muscles against a Super Rugby team, I would take that choice. Whether it is the Rebels or someone else- no matter.

    It is what is best for WA rugby.

    If the Melbourne came to Perth the only thing it would be good for is to rob the kit manager and have a nice bonfire of the hideous rag that is the Melbourne Rebels jersey.

    If we destroy them utterly on the paddock, I might consider some forgiveness. I'd even be ok if our team consists of a majority of foreign marquees.

    At this moment in time NO,NO,NO! Maybe in time and when we see what the Fd Up Rats Arse do and even then it will be painful looking at our team playing against us!
