    Sure, although their version of that is as likely to be to insist that the GRR fund a team in each of the SR cities so the Force doesn't have an advantage...:meh:

    Whether it could be done would largely depend on what Andrew Forrest would be prepared to fund. If it was done as an expanded squad putting out teams in two comps I think it could work out very well....

    They assume the two teams the Kiwis are interested in aren't the Force and Brumbies... :sarcastic:

    Perhaps, but it was the bit where he was blethering on about paying players 35K, what a difficult transition it is between Shute Shield and the professional game, how the solution was for them to...

    Probably not, but was more irritated to hear him blather about making the SS semi-professional. They clearly haven't given it a moments thought, but what did they think the NRC was leading toward if...

    Honestly can't see how they are any realistic chance when they (JO'N) were very clear about why it simply wasn't feasible for Australia to bid for either 2015/19. None of those reasons have...

    I was thinking more the assumption that RA could somehow talk NZ into four teams (even though that is what they have now and suck), and that the Force would be one. I was picturing what would happen...

    I can't see how there would be any value to Forrest in picking up all the expense of a SR team. I could see some if he were prepared to underwrite it however, in conjunction with the GRR team.

    I've always thought of Kirup Syrup as the definitive goon, although to call it wine might be a little generous. $2 for a 2L flagon when I was a young scrote, although it was usually a plastic bottle...

    That is the problem with one big overarching organisation responsible for being all things to everyone (especially NSW). Those sort of structures get large and unwieldy, with overlapping...

    It sounds like that may be something not lost on the Japanese. When times are tough and assets distressed, that is the time to buy if you are sure of your future. The Japanese seem to be in the...

    That is fine if the money and standard in GRR were better than SR, but that is unrealistic anytime soon. Treating SR as a seconds would be fine if they are still competitive and win more than at...

    I don't think there is any reason the Force couldn't play both, and the relative standard would be irrelevant. Could even be quite interesting, in that it might give a lot of scope for squad...

    Speaking of other sites, and despite all the antique articles still listed, the article about the Force joining the pseudo-SR has already disappeared from The Roar after only four days. Maybe felt...

    I assume it is a replay, but when did NTV start showing "Rugby WA Premier League"?

    TBH, I suspect it is pretty common anytime you sell something that is paid for in an overseas currency. Not hedging is just as fraught if the AUD goes north and your revenues shrink accordingly.
