    For mine, because I think most folk hope the GRR might become something better than just a feeder competition. If so and it reaches the level of a SR, then the gap back to club rugby will be...

    What I mean though, is even if they decided they wanted it, I can't really see any value in it for WA. Would a Cott or Perth really want to try going professional? Would the attempt really be in the...

    Depending on which way they go, RA may more than do their part too. I can't really see anything in a Club Championship worth anything to WA, so in practice the GRR could easily expand into the space...

    Yep, the code spent so much time looking backwards and at its own feet, it walked into a wall. Hard to see how they can realistically come back TBH, not that there is any real evidence that they...

    If nothing else comes out of this competition, I hope it gives all the other locations a profile and visibility such that someone starts investing in them. But especially the Islands.

    Pity...thought the might have tried using it as an extended engagement with Singapore.

    Agreed, it is not a technical issue, merely a cost. Their other deals for content would be seen as a bit of jam on top of someone else's deal, for this they would be seen as the anchor contract and...

    I think it is more that in this deal they would be expected to cover the cost if it (either directly or indirectly) whereas normally they just piggyback on the content generated by others.

    I have to say, it is this sort of stuff that makes me wish someone had decided a couple of years ago to properly fund a Future Falcons. Maybe even a Future Something or other in Newcastle, although...

    If that is where they are heading, I seriously think the rest of the states should say thanks but no thanks. Keep the NRC going, see if Samoa wants a side, five teams home and away, then really work...

    As I would read it, the NRC is gone and what replaces it is the SS, playing as now at the same time as SR and GRR. Whether the Force would be putting out a full second team, or would even be asked to...

    Might as well get a look at what's likely to replace the NRC, I guess. Hope the Force sticks a ton on them, get them complaining that WA isn't amateur enough to take part in the comp supporting SR...

    If they don't want to go cold turkey, wonder if they'd like to show GRR... ;)

    All up though, doesn't bode well for the NRC which would be a genuine shame.

    I find the approach taken with Seven's coverage odd. Was channel surfing on the weekend and came across NITV covering the South Australian comp. Wonder how much they would be paying...?

    I can certainly understand that Ali, and suspect a lot of folks are in the same boat. But if so, we can't complain if the Force is ignored by the Wallabies selectors. If it isn't SR standard, it will...

    Add a couple of Japanese teams, that starts to look like a genuinely sustainable comp with real potential. The partnering concept is interesting; wonder if a European presence might be possible.

    TBH, always thought McArdle was the least worst of them. Makes you wonder what they've got planned, not that it matters to me much.
