    It depends on how ‘executive’ the Chair wants to be I think. Clyne wanted full control when Chair and so both Pulver and Raelene had their wings well and truly clipped. Pulver was not up to the job...

    Yep, a derr moment for those of us who have been pushing the five team barrow up a steep hill for the past nearly four years!!!

    He went back for a family matter just before the start of the season I think and then got stuck there when COVID hit and our border was closed.

    I don’t think Mark would be interested in either role to be honest - not enough of a challenge for him. I imagine he’ll return to the UK permanently.

    My personal view is that GRR has run its course for now. I think the Force will join either an RA comp or an NZRU comp next year - whichever one is best for WA rugby.

    They wouldn’t want to be just CEO, they would want the role of Chair.

    I just hope this doesn’t mean Rob Clarke gets a tilt at the job permanently. Mind you, he has said having the role only on a...

    Tim North. Two words that are enough to make me want to pick up the phone to Andrew Forrest to tell him NOT to do any business with RA and to stay right away from Super Rugby AU post 2020.

    Has the parachuting-in of “names” been a success? I personally don’t really think so. It’s upset the balance in the centres - made worse by the loss of Prior and his quick ball and metronomic place...

    Lace didn’t have a great game last week.
    Wagner has a hamstring niggle unfortunately. I think he has been a standout, especially given that he is so young.
    Not sure about Brache. I personally...

    Baden Stephenson also doesn’t seem to quite get that Clarke is just the CEO, not the Chairman. Unless Clarke and McLennon also have a “special relationship”, Clarke does NOT have the last say.

    RA is between a rock and a hard place. NSW and QLD are “untouchable”, WA has a billionaire backer, ACT has the most successful AU team, and VIC can expose a lot of secrets that certain people would...

    Shame for Holmes. Bloody great opportunity for Dom Hardman though! What a fairytale journey he’s had in WA.

    I’m with you, Shasta! McLennan has to get NSW and Vic to eat shit before anything will really change.

    And if he keeps Clarke on as CEO, all bets are off!
