    Cheika's pay linked to crowd sizes?

    The rugby rumour mill can lead you down weird and wonderful paths, but I came across one recently that, for the sake of New South Wales Waratahs fans and Australia, I really hope is true.

    The mail around bonuses in the contract of new Tahs coach Michael Cheika is they are not based on a win/loss record, as it customary, but are instead based on how many people turn up to watch games.

    If that's true, and I hope it is, it is a stroke of genius. What such a move could do is remove the "fear of losing" factor for Cheika, which has stifled far too many people at NSW Rugby in recent times.

    It could give Cheika the licence to bring in a brand of rugby that puts bums on seats, and we've heard promising talk from within the camp already that points to some open, exciting rugby from the Waratahs in 2013.

    If it is not right, then it ought to be. The Waratahs desperately need to bring that brand of rugby in 2013, for two reasons. It is a) the best way to win rugby games and b) bring back fans.

    Yep. A convent player to have become available just after signing a coaching contract containing that among your KPIs.

    So do we expect these kinds of schemes from Cheika this year?

    Well we all know the NSW WaraTart fans only go when they are (a) winning and (b) playing interesting games....1st game is a let off as everyone wants to go to the 1st game of the season, so i'll pencil in a decent crowd, then it will go downhill there after, cheika will continue on his good work like he did with PSG and get them 'almost' relegated. I dont see it being any different with the Waratarts. by the end of the season they will be playing out of North Sydney oval or Sydney Uni practice grounds as the crowds will be HUGE....

    Captain sarcasim.

    If he's paid based upon crowd numbers, what sort of massive brain fart made him name Dave Dennis as captain? I can't think of a more uninteresting gimp!

    It won't matter what his contract says, the board will start to meddle about round four, either he won't be winning enou, or he won't be using enough players from Randwick or he won't be playing pretty enough rugby or he won't be valuing the set piece.

    After that, the rest is déjà Vu.

    Not everyone has the opportunity to pick and choose the Force games they wish to attend.

    I will be attending, and wearing my Force gear with pride and getting drunk for the 2 hour train ride home. Nothing like a full bladder and no place to pee for 2 hours.
