    Probably time for the 2017 thread, but Steve Mafi said to be off to France after this year.

    That article also gives the first 8 weeks of free-to-air games to be shown on One. In those eight weeks, the Waratahs and Brumbies are featured 4 times, the Reds twice and us and the Rebels once each (and at least the Rebels is against a NZ team, our match is vs the Brumbies so if they use the Fox commentators, the Brumbies will be the 'home' team)

    Not a surprise they are going with the successful sides from last year as the televised sides for most of the first 8 weeks.

    You really need to stop shooting down these conspiracy theories with logic. Get with the seige mentality or get out of the way.

    Mafi will be a big loss for us but can't blame him for going to France.

    Also noticed in that article that RugbyHQ is no more and will be replaced by a Weds evening show hosted by Greg Martin and Rod Kafer. I defs won't be tuning in for that show!!

    Sorry to see Mafi looking elsewhere as he is the type of player we like here, full of heart.

    Lock stocks will really be low after this need to lock in Adam pretty quickly now.

    We also need to remember Mafi is a marquee player and ARU could have been influential in the decision obviously not to our benefit.

    If I remember correctly a marquee player can only be signed for 2 years so not to take up spots for aus players.

    Album the exception the Force applied for dispensation to sign him again.

    I'll take it that that is correct. I'm supposing it's because he plays for Tonga. But how can a bloke who was born in, went to school in and progressed through the Rugby pathways of NSW be ineligible to play Super Rugby in Australia other than as a marquee? Does not make a lot of sense to me. Restraint of trade?

    If that is all that is pushing him back to the NH it's sad. He's exactly the type of player any team wants - hard as, uncompromising and gives his best every time he puts on a shirt.

    I hope we are able to get a good replacement for the next two years. We have a couple of promising youngsters coming through but they won't be ready for another 2 or 3.

    Remember Adam Byrne? Born and raised in Sydney, played for the Reds and Rebels until he played for Russia in the 2011 RWC. Then became a foreign international, and so would need to be a marquee to be signed.
