    Mining magnate Andrew Forrest won’t stop fighting for Western Force

    Mining magnate Andrew Forrest said the battle against the injustice of axing of Western Force from Super Rugby had only just started.
    Forrest, the man behind the radical Word Series Rugby and the re-born Force, told supporters at today’s fan day that he would continue to defend the sport in WA.
    “We all suffered last year with some really serious injustice,” Forrest said.
    “You know how tough it is when you see real injustice.
    “The problem with injustice is that it’s almost impossible to stand up against.
    “To do so you have to really fight.
    “We have really fought and we are here and we are going to be back stronger than ever.
    “We’ve come together to fight an injustice, to defend and advance our state, to defend and love our sport and get behind our magnificent players.”

    Thank you Twiggy for standing up for the injustice committed by the ARU (governing body of the sport) against fellow Australians.

    Contrast with sponsors reaction to actions of just 3 individual Australian cricket players against a team from another country.

    I think Magellan appointed one of the ARU directors as director of Magellan. Qantas and others were silent on the actions of the ARU.

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-03-2...ncroft/9600470

    Magellan's co-founder and chief executive Hamish Douglass said the ball-tampering in South Africa was "so inconsistent with our values that we are left with no option but to terminate our ongoing partnership with Cricket Australia".

    Qantas, whose logo is prominent on the Australian team's shirts, said today it would continue its sponsorship, despite CEO Alan Joyce saying on Tuesday he was, "very disappointed" with the incident.

    John Eales is on the Magellan Board.

    So how can they have such high values?

    Maybe ARU anti Twiggy propaganda?

    I am really enjoying seeing pictures on facebook of massive "be the Force" adverts appearing in Perth train stations and that rugby development officers have visited 18 schools in WA recently. I am starting to think that the marketing professionals Twiggy has employed are going to teach the ARU a thing or two about promoting rugby in the coming months and years.

    I can't really remember these sorts of large poster ads being around when the Force were in Super Rugby, I really like seeing them around, puts a skip in your step. Quite ironic, most people who knew nothing of the Force during Super Rugby will get more exposure to them now that they're out of the competition.
