    Jones is a grub. Having him on your cause will do you far worse in the court of public opinion than if he never got involved.

    Not overly sure how plausible a Japanese team would be considering the recent restructure of the league set up that will come into effect in 2020. Perhaps some kind of post season Cup competition...

    Has anyone been keeping or know where some stats around line outs per game could be found for the exhibition series so far. At least anecdotally it appears to me to be roughly a halving of the...

    I think you should read that again. The 23k is for overseas matches most notably those played in the middle of the night in SA when factored into the ratings. Often not involving Aus teams. Not some...

    It is from a development point of view. Even after paying out the £355m ($649 AUD)annually to the participating teams that would have still left around £155m ($283m AUD) into smaller nations which...

    No. The numbers have been crunched on G&GR which has been tracking the ratings season long and apparently the Aus games are up 10%. They were performing strongly prior to both the AFL and NRL kicking...

    I think Andy is referencing why these guys aren't being picked up by the likes of South China and the Dragons more so than exclusively the Force.

    I posted this above but if RA were to cut the SR teams to three I would like it to coincide with RA and Minderoo looking to work a lot more closely together in order to benefit all parties. You...

    Frankly, RA should look to merge the Brumbies and Rebels and split the games. Might make their games more of an occasion for both sets of fans. But if they were to go down this path I would want RA...

    And just another thought here on the potential of a Sth Australian squad. If RA were to do away with the Rebels and go to three it could open up the ability for RA to effectively contract much of the...

    It would depend on the level of investment. If they had the level right and there was the desire for a 2nd Aus team they could do it by importing talent while setting up the local academy systems and...

    I'm not going to argue development because it's certainly something RA has failed to do at any real adequate level but let's be 100% realistic here. We have the current 5 teams drawing primarily from...

    I agree. Might be a little too far to start. A bit far fetched here. But the Sth American Pro League is kicking off next year. Could be a future link in with that in say a Cup competition.
