    That'll be because Western Australia can't receive less help than that already given by RA (ie, 2/5ths of f***-all!)

    Did he find out how much we paid for that? I'm assuming that's it's less than $5 million, because I assume that the Bledisloe game sells at a premium. But if we can fill (or close to fill) Optus...

    The story by Nick Taylor mentioned a Wallabies v South Africa match on August 29th next year (although I'm struggling to find any mention of it elsewhere). I wonder how much that cost West...

    They could have done a lot worse when they moved the HQ, than move it to Adelaide. It's the most central capital, and would show that RA won't be controlled by any one state.

    32 game competition? 10 rounds of 3 games each, plus a play-off between the top two sides, makes 31. Where's the extra game?

    That's not the rules which apply in soccer, where this is a more frequent issue. If a 'new' nation is formed (eg, Kosovo) then players who have played for the other countries can decide to play for...

    A man who seems to be mainly connected to Victoria and NSW giving money specifically to the Queensland branch of a political party does seem a touch shady, I'll admit!

    One who will continue to siphon money towards NSW, Queensland, and especially Victoria, ignore the 'little people' (aka grassroots), and will pay lip-service to club rugby.

    Perth, Fiji, Samoa, Singapore, Hong Kong, and with KL (Malaysia Valke) having the inside track on the 6th franchise.

    Wow - 5 coaches for the Waratahs (plus various assistants, etc).

    Didn't the ARU prevent the Force from having a head coach, backs coach and forwards coach, because 3 was too many?
