    I thought the whole point of changing the quarantine restrictions ahead of the two NZ Bledisloes was to allow the earlier date, so that the whole RC could be brought forward. The two extra countries...

    Whether there is an extended aquad for SR or not, that is the main reason I hope they keep GRR going too. Training alongside top players might be useful, but they have to have somewhere to play as...

    Having GRR as the development comp for WA would probably address concerns about competitive standards. That might change pretty quickly as the various start-ups find their feet, but that would be a...

    The problem is, every time RA says that, it only invites reflection on the last time they said exactly the same thing. Times and faces may have changed, but I hope no-one that matters forgets that...

    Why would they - RA has always had their back. Same was true here, until it was obvious that they didn't. That is when the rubber hit the road here and Andrew Forrest stepped up, but it usually takes...

    Don't know about target players, but I'm well and truly over players that run straight at the opposition. Maybe it is the influence of League, but aimless hit ups have long characterised Australian...

    I would agree that is a pretty good summary of where everyone thought things were at. Right up until Matt Hodgson was directly quoted as saying “There are many things to go through. Obviously if we...

    Wouldn't think so. Mind you, if a proper job had been done of the NRC, we might have some idea where things were at by way of progress. Certainly would have been interesting to see.

    Just saying, they probably couldn't have picked a more inflammatory option though. If next year involves separate competitions again, it materially undermines RA's negotiations with potential...

    I have to say, I am surprised the Force has opened the box. They have been so careful not to rock the boat with GRR, yet going off and playing in NZ would be a huge flipping of the bird to RA. Even...

    I thought there was some merit to the idea the JFRU floated for involvement with the SH. Much of the attraction to GRR was the development of the game in Asia, but I'm not sure Japan has any real...

    That is kind of what I am hoping. With RA looking like they're going to walk away from any sort of development tier, GRR in some respects could be the most important element for WA. As demonstrated...

    Put like that, it probably is a legitimate question whether there is a point to being in Super Rugby. If all the last three years means is a return to exactly the way things were before, except with...

    No surprise, been waiting for the shoes to start dropping after the pay cut deal. Good opportunity for them, and those mentioned so far are unlikely to be the last. Likelihood is that they'll only be...
