    How? That is exactly the same argument as "The Force should only have been created once WA was producing lots of SR players". The players happen when there is a feasible pathway, otherwise anyone...

    Just toeing the party line, I would imagine. NSW and Q'ld bitch that other teams take players from their states, but there is no way they'd ever want that to change. The only way the other states...

    I am surprised they get nothing from NSWRU, but I suppose if they can afford to pay players all their lower grades and juniors must already have everything they need with money left over.

    But I...

    As an analogy, the actual grass roots all the juniors and subbies teams across the country, and equate to primary schooling through to year 10. It culminates in the Premier rugby competitions, which...

    All a bit of a rambling mess for mine. Not sure what the point of it was.

    The only way they could make things worse than they are now would be to put the whole code in the hands of an AFL type commission, run by the same idiots as now, but with no actual responsibility to...

    Wasn't going to bother saying anything, but have to echo Boof. Said it after the first game, but the team lacks penetration and everyone has worked out the pick and drive. For mine it is all...

    But read the comments, and everyone still sees in them what they want to see. Nonetheless, it is an angle that I think should be seen more.

    If they go down that path, will be interesting to see whether their fans and stakeholders are more flexible and accepting than Union's. My guess would be yes, in line with a more professional...

    With the NRC gone, player development is likely to go backward rather than forward. It is too big a gap, and academies are only part of the solution rather than the whole answer. I expect that, just...

    Probably the last time the Force didn't have a salary cap. Which apparently changes next year, so likely the reason for all the one year contracts.

    Seems a bit late to still be pulling a list together; anyone know if he will actually make it onto the field this season, or whether it's a longer term signing? Not that there seems to be much...

    Pretty much agree with what you say, but would note that Val said reffed, not penalised. If only one side were being penalised for offside, they can absolutely take a step back. That will stop them...

    Sorry X, but by inspection that is not logical. If two teams are evenly balanced, then if the ref only focuses on one side, or decides one side is entirely at fault in a major aspect of the game like...

    Maybe they should give Barry Cable a call. Even today he could probably teach them a thing or twenty about drop kicking a ball.

    Well, the Brumbies would have lost if they hadn't scored three tries. Force will need both some penetration and some discipline, so hopefully they've been working on both after the first two weeks...

    The PI teams might look to a trans-Tasman, but they would need to be competitive. Based on the standard of their teams, I would see GRR as a much more natural fit for both them and any Japanese...
