    They should have walked out like Stooke did so blood is on their hands. Eales is the only other board member with some credibility as he resigned, faced fans in WA in person and responded to angry fans.

    Gillard got the Labor leadership by stabbing Rudd in the back so Rudd went out for revenge and lied to the Australian public about the Carbon Tax. She was an awful public speaker and made the education system worse.

    Castle didnít have the guts to sack Cheika. The argument that the RA said that they couldnít afford which was bs as they paid out Scott Johnsonís Scottish contract and have now wasted ridiculous money on lawyers. The RA allowed Cheika to throw Larkham under the bus and moved him sideways which lasted three months.

    Donít get me started on Cheika taking 51 people to Johannesburg for an extra week.

    I know people here have little time for Raelene Castle. But I can tell you all that she displays none of those traits and if only people took the time, they would come to respect her as highly as I have come to respect her.

    Now is time for a female Chair of Rugby Australia.

    This is not me being anti-men in any way at all. I just believe that women often make better leaders.


    Previous CEO's got things done. Raelene refuses to be a real CEO and hides in Cameron Clynes shadow pretending she has no aurhority to do anything. If she was such a good leader then she should be able to pursuade the board to get things done, the chairmen doesnt have the ultimate say on everything they just bring it to a vote via the board. She is nothing like O'Neil and nothing like Flowers, Flowers pursuaded the board to get the ARC started which was a phenomenal feat. It didnt last but atleast he did something for the sport. Raelene has literally done nothing for Rugby and even worse nothing for WA. And woman dont make better leaders. Especially ones that dont have any say or influence to change policy or bring anything new to the board to change the direction of the sport for the better. I personally dont like John O'neil but I have 10x more respect for him than Raelene. Can you tell me the last time O'Neil or Flowers hid behind their Chairman? If woman are such "better" leaders and Raelene was such a good CEO she should be able to convince the largest number of female representation on an RA board in their entire history and then she would only need a few of the men to get on board to have a majority vote and say and get things done. But she cant because even the woman on her board dont seem to respect her enough to change anything RA are doing for the better. The sport has been in terminal decline since she came onboard.

    Flowers also had an open tender which allowed the Force to enter in to Super Rugby.

    Agreed that they donít make better leaders the Palaschuk Government in Qld case in point. Jackie Trad the Deputy Premier has dominated her and got in to trouble recently. A strong leader would have pushed for Trad to resign.

    The ARU was in decline before Castle came on board. She hasn't had much (any?) success in turning it around, though.
