    Relatively speaking, not a bad effort for Harris. He only got one thing wrong, although it was the fundamental premise of the article in it's entirety.

    The additional teams were introduced to try...

    I'd see it as a bit of a project. Wouldn't be immediate, or necessarily even real soon, as I'd hope they would learn the lesson from the past. Maybe start with an expanded academy offering...

    But my point is that is not an accident, the establishment has steadfastly refused to do anything that might change that situation. Just dropping a professional team in a location without making any...

    Sounds pretty good and the sort of thing a new professional organisation could usefully get behind and support, rather than either try to take over or duplicate. Some assistance and encouragement...

    Essentially, the issue for Australian rugby has always come down to "But we just don't have the base to support more than 3 pro sides that are at the required level to be competitive in SR while...

    Enjoyed the game. Throw a half dozen real marquee players into each team and they would be a serious handful. But it is a pity if they can't keep that Samoan team together until next year. The big...

    Would be happy if Samoa and Hawaii shared an umbrella organisation, with Samoa in GRR and Hawaii in an American comp. That could be a potentially useful link to foster given the two competitions...

    They ought to, but they won't. The last upgrade to NIB pretty much telegraphed that there won't be any more, and there is no real case for increasing it anyway. They don't have the luxury of other...

    Can't see how that can be helpful in any way! When next year still doesn't seem locked in, telling everyone involved you might only be treating GRR as a placeholder can't possibly be a good thing....

    Anyone know whether it is just the Valke, or whether there is something making them "Malaysian"? I can't say I'd see much value in simply having a SA team transplanted to Malaysia, but a strong joint...

    But it would have to be government with consent, and I really can't see that ever happening. Or it would have to happen without NSW, and possibly even Q'ld. And if they came along due to a lack of...

    If RA folded, NSWRU would simply step in, claim primacy, say it is a short term temporary measure only, cancel the NRC, punt the Brumbies and Rebels, choose the Wallabies side, and then decide how...

    Didn't see all of it, but what I saw looked good. Put three or four international marquee level players in, and it would have been huge.

    Interesting listen. Good to hear they are continuing with the community involvement requirements, and hopefully that will flow forward into the other teams. Very interesting to listen to the general...

    Seems a bit surprising when they are showing the Fiji/Samoa game, but I assume there must be some rationale. Well looking forward to the game this weekend though!

    Still remains to be seen what 'GRR' looks like this year and what teams might be playing in it, let alone who controls and/or pays for what. Without that, anything is speculation at best, shit...

    Maybe I'm missing something, but not really getting that from the article. It mentions WA, axing the Force, and was generally nice about some RugbyWA officials and GRR. It is not like they claimed he...

    As ad-hoc and up-in-the-air as it all feels at the moment, have to say how good it is to see these games on free-to-air. Would be nice to think it reflected some underlying interest, but enjoying it...

    Comes across as "GRR would never act the way SR did" though, which is a big line in the sand. A few teams seem obvious, but there still seems to be all sorts of rubbish flying around as to who else....

    Jones is only interested in any angle at having a go at RA. I don't think he necessarily means anything he says, just that it is a useful crowbar.

    The lot of them are journalists. No-one goes to...
