    I'm not an accountant, but:

    it looks like the ARU spent $5.5m buying the Rebels and have committed a further $3m by way of a loan to them for 2013/14 (Note 19f on page 25 of the financial statements)

    The payments made to each of the unions were (as per Note 18 on page 24 of the financial statements):

    Qld - $1,782,000
    NSW - $1,050,000 PLUS $1,819,00 for "community rugby in NSW"
    Vic - $585,000
    ACT & Southern NSW (?) - $244,000
    NT - $272,000
    SA - $260,000
    TAS - $85,000
    WA - $200,000

    My question for the ARU - why is WA getting so little compared to the other jurisdictions? Even on a per head of population basis it's way short.

    Any answers anyone?

    I actually asked Greg Clark about this Community Rugby deal when Waratahs Rugby announced it a few weeks back and his answer was "When Waratahs Rugby was set up a few years ago the deal was to bankroll NSW Community Rugby for "X" amount annually".

    However this year they only announced that they had given $1 million, wonder where the other $819,000 has gone? More ground hire fees this year?? Is that what they pay Izzy to go visit the school kids???

    Why don't we do the same, bankroll WA Community Rugby and get the ARU to pay for it, works well over east by the looks.

    Any answers anyone??

    The last time VRU got a "limited guarantee loan" was for the ARC. They used all bar 10 cents of the 3 mill!

    Wests Scarborough 1st Grade juggernaut has played finals rugby each and every year since its inception and continues this remarkable feat yet again this season and unbelievably it's still rolling on.

    They need to find 1.8million bucks to fund NSWRU community rugby

    Probably because the ARU will be broke again next year as the the only reason they returned a profit was due to the Lions series.
