    Wonder what that penetrating insight cost them, and no doubt it'll be bonuses all 'round. Odd that the don't address the reasons why the Aus A program stopped in 2008 though, and what is different...

    They can overhaul the team all they like, it is just the same thing tried again with no reason to expect a different outcome. It seems pretty obvious that there is something key missing, and my guess...

    And you can probably count on them being a damn sight less if they expect people to watch from 40m away on a flat field. If they are going to do that, the state government should eat the fee for...

    Where the players come from matters not at all compared to the game plan. And I just can't see the Force winning much when they have so poor a kicking game. Putting aside the uncontested...

    I hear that Andrew, and agree with most of it. But my concern would be that it ignores thirteen years of history in Super Rugby. Even with the enforced break, the Force has never shown or been able...

    Pretty shit article. Obviously, if RA is top-heavy and needs to change, swapping Johnson for another administrator won't fix things. Not unless there are a bunch of other people also being sacked to...

    I'd be deeply sceptical. If there was even the remotest possibility, RA would have long since leaked it and they'd already be wheeling out the team song.

    I wouldn't go as far as inexcusable with 7 minutes to go, but subsequently kicking away all possession in fairly aimless fashion certainly was. The kicking all night was bad, out of hand perhaps even...

    Lots of contributing factors, but ultimately a long slow death due to pushing residents out of the city centre.

    If I had to guess, I'd put my money on the Force sending (were obliged to send?) the press release to RA before they could issue, and it landed on the SMH desk 30 seconds later. Which to me would...

    A couple of notable shambles spring to mind though...interviewing Chieka then suddenly signing Foley (not that that was necessarily bad, just badly managed), and the whole 'team song' saga. Foley,...

    Agree with that, he seems to slow and even stop going into contact. He also starts standing still, but that is as much or more on the passer than on him...slow passes to static players, gee, wonder...

    Does seem OTT, but it is player led I suppose. Just hope there is a strong underlying reason and it isn't being driven by a few strong personalities. If not and players are going along too cautious...

    I think it realistically needs to include at least a couple of Japanese clubs. We are not alone in needing player development opportunities, and it would make for a much more stable organisation.

    No doubt; leopards don't often change their shorts. Doesn't make it the right call for everyone though, or mean everyone has to sing off the same songsheet.

    To be honest, I suspect RA would be looking at the number of 1 year deals at the moment and sweating bullets. Contracts brought over for more than 2 years are probably being met at the door and...

    Typical Kiwi, always doing things the hard way. Like most Aussies, I have long committed to having a bottle in front of me. Same destination, better journey.
