    The RA spoke a lot of bs about them being unable to axe the Rebels but Nick Taylor sourced the emails where the RA engineered the $1 sale to the VRU instead of paying the dollar themselves which would have give them the licence. Still no one has bothered to find their books to see how much debt they are in.

    How did you know that!

    Yes, its in a hexagonal chocolate tin with a picture of Santa Clause on it. One of those from the very early '50's. My mum was very sentimental when it came to her lovely baby boy.

    But it's more than just a lock, it's a veritable whole curly shock of auburn.

    I was a big disappointment to her in my later years.

    I'm hoping to have it transplanted back on when the technology is more advanced.

    You know how it is with Italian boys and their mothers.

    O’Neill promised them dollars and short travel times when he first pitched a fourth side but couldn’t get it through before he went to Soccer.

    South Africa was in favour of Perth, break up the long-range journey with a stopover; New Zealand in favour of Melbourne, closer back and forth over the ditch during the rest of the season.

    Same here. Was going to buy tickets for Mrs Jedi's birthday but she didn't want to give $$$ to RA so I'm having to slum it in a corporate box too.

    Jeez. How can you blokes live with yourselves. Being seen to support RA's team is tantamount to treason: (Translates to "I'm bloody envious of you bastards swanning around The Craypot with free booze and nibbles!"). Have to console ourselves with scoring comps from FMG for Friday - membership games used up.

    I too didnt get tickets for a few reasons, 1. RA can gone fark themselves, 2. I saw all of the finals in NZ at the RWC so you cant really beat that experience for seeing the AB's.
    But I have managed to score a ticket as one of the chaperones for the Perth-Baysie U6s as we are headed out on the pitch before the game. So thankfully I didnt cough up cash to feed the RA lies machine and am still going. So glad Perth-Baysie wear black

    It will be obvious how much support the Wallabies really have. After this game wraps up we can expect to see sub 20k crowds again for all other Wallaby fixtures in the future. Raelene and RA will try and use this game to push their sloppy agenda that Rugby is alive and kicking again in WA and that somehow this is a reflection of us all forgiving RA for their sins when its just a case of everyone wanting to see the All Blacks play and quite simply nothing to do with the Wallabies and Rugby Australia.

    Cant wait for the next load of dribble from Tom Decent and that other spacker Georgina Robinson who have their heads shoved so far up Clyne and Raelenes asshole that they have totally misread the Australian Rugby publics views, attiutude and resentment towards them and this attrocious governing body representing our sport.

    This will probably be the only Bledisloe to be held in Perth. Watching the All Blacks live is a one off . The rest doesn’t really matter..... wear Blue.

    A scab who holds his nose is still a scab, Ecky.
