    I haven't been on Roar for 4-6 months and enjoyed Spiro's article and some of the comments until I saw TWAS comments..no more roar for another 4-5 months I think.

    Ditto. I don't look at Roar or GAGR unless someone here links something. I can see why he frustrates some of our members who go there regularly. But I cant work out why they bother with him?? He's pretty obviously a passively aggressive troll. Any attention he gets is exactly what he thrives on.

    On the thrust of the article, it looks as though just about every journo in the country and quite a few from outside it, are calling for heads to roll. Except for the Rats Arse website "journo" and their anointed mouth pieces at the SMH and the Telecrap.

    But still they keep on keeping on. Podcast of Papworth's regular Monday phone-in to 2sm in might be worth a listen after that performance at Twickenham. Or not.

    Loved this opening salvo from Spiro

    I have written about Australian rugby since the early 1980s. I would call this the worst chairman and most uninformed board that has governed the rugby game here in that time.

    A fish rots from the head. We have in Australia a board and a chairman obsessed about political correctness and ignorant about rugby correctness.

    It is a board that is absolutely secretive, to the point where no one outside of the board has a clue about what it is doing and deciding, or whether it is even deciding or doing anything.

    Not only that diver, apparently no one INSIDE the board has a clue about what it is doing or deciding....apart from Clyne and Robinson.

    And it was revealed that Sherry (I think) has missed every other board meeting!

    You don’t have to look far to see what Broderick was up to last year while the house was burning.

    Enough is enough: Cannon fires up at Rugby Australia
    But the hooker, who played for NSW and Queensland
    So Ms Robinson is this not the same Mr Cannon that played for the Western Force. Seems not according to your story.
    Another great example of Eastern States rugby journalism.

    Just need this swell of momentum to keep going. I think the Chieka allure has worn off and he has probably told RA that he won't quit, they will have to sack him (could even picture him saying it). He is certifiably delusional at the moment.

    If (when) he goes their will be some very worried players....

    Smells like he has lost the locker room and no one pays any attention to Hooper....smacks of two sets of standards.
