    Not surprised.

    TWAS has come up with this deluded gem on a Roar article about the RWC vote

    http://www.theroar.com.au/2017/11/16...omment-6025575

    'The federal government wonít care what past admins may have done with past profits.

    If they see an economic and reputation benefit for Australia, they will consider funding.

    If they donít, they wonít consider funding.

    They arenít going to just hold petty grudges like you. Theyíll make a decision on what suits the Aus government and people, regardless of Rugby Australia.

    Given our already committed stadia expansion and likely position in 2027 itís a possibility, as it will bring huge economic benefit and wonít require much stadia outlay as we will have upgraded ANZ, Alliance and Parramatta, as well as Suncorp, New Perth Stadium, MCG & AAMI Park in Melbourne, potential upgrades done in Canberra and Adelaide Oval plus Gold Coast.'

    Yup, by 2027 the good rugby people of WA, after a decade in IPRC, will almost have forgotten the RatsArse enough to actually go to the Craypot for a rugby international. Some might even support the WallaTahrds

    I can't decide whether TWAS (a.k.a. Joel a.k.a. several other sock puppets) is paid to write his drivel, or whether he has some bizarre form of Stockholm Syndrome.

    If the IPRC goes well (and the indications are that it is already well supported in our region) then the prospects of a shared 2027 World Cup would increase enormously. That would have good financial, media and spectator interest. The though of a world cup hosted across multiple countries in our timezone is very tasty, especially if Perth got games

    Really? I thought AUS + NZ have shared in the past.

    Edit: answering my own question - 1987 Aus + NZ, 1991 England, Wales, France, Ireland, Scotland

    To paraphrase TWAT:
    ...Given our already committed stadia expansion and likely position in 2027 itís a possibility, as it will bring huge economic benefit and wonít require much stadia outlay as we will have upgraded Craypot, Singers, Honkers, Shanghers, Galle and Tokyo .'

    That's changed due to the horsetrading of games to other unions and the farce surrounding NZ's behaviour towards RWCL in 2003.

    I have just written this to the RA

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    I am writing to express my disgust at the ARU's behaviour towards Rugby in Western Australia and the findings coming out of the recent Senate Inquiry in to the Future of Rugby Union in Australia.

    Before I get started If I get a response from a secretary or personal assistant you should also resign as having such a dishonest organisation that has been rightfully shamed on your resume is not a good look. This also be suggested to your 'Chairman' who more correctly should be titled 'Dictator and demolition SME for the game of Rugby in Australia.'

    You appoint board members from the 'boys club' belonging to the Friends of Sydney University Football Club and the nominations committee is an absolute joke.

    The fact that the then so called ARU had a member of the Friends boys club conduct one of the 13 reviews is an absolute farce and not independent at all.

    Mr Pulver's behaviour publicly towards the Western Force and in front of the Senate Committee is an absolute disgrace to the game of Rugby in Australia. This is from an individual who has already resigned and should have been put out on garden leave for doing such a horrendous job.

    Apart from seeking legal costs from Rugby WA which your disgraceful organisation put them in that position to fight for their survival and sacking staff in that organisation you have not provided a solution for the future survival of the game there. I mean survival as you can't administrate a game when you have skeleton staff and in voluntary administration.

    I have already suggested to people inside Rugby WA who are by miracle are still there due to the fact that they haven't been sacked by your shameful organisation that they succeed from the poorly named Rugby Australia as they no longer represent them as custodians of the game.

    On top of this I have also suggested to the WA Government to take you to town in court. Rugby in WA is going to go down due to your reckless behaviour and malpractice so you should go down too.

    You claim to be struggling financially however you managed to waste money on a re-branding and using taxpayer funds to move to a new facility opposite your mates at the Waratahs.

    Just resign and wind yourselves up so Rugby in Australia can start again with a more honest crew representing the best interests of the game in this country.

    Regards

    What was just said on 6PR? I switched it on and they were talking about the test match squad for the Gabba and Adelaide.

    This is the cherry on top of the ARU double scoop chocolate sundae.

    They must be so pleased at RA HQ. Probably sitting in their board room as we speak watching all the live social media streams light up on the wall of 100 inch Samsung 4K screens, their laughter absorbed by the mahogany lined room. The senior RA executive stating "job well done boys as he passes round a box of Cohiba Behike Cuban cigars whilst lovingly patting their pet Tasmanian Tiger, brought back through a RA funded cloning program concealed in the RA Financial Statements as "Stationery".

    While looking at pictures of John Eales.

    Tom Decent has got an article out about Rugby WA nothing about the Senate Inquiry. Funny about that.

    I decided to call him out on it...

    Replying to @tomdecent
    Hey Tom, did yourself and the rest of the SMH team forget to report on the findings handed down from the senate inquiry on Wednesday, or did it not fit your narrative? What do we need to do to get some DECENT coverage of the ARU's underhanded dealings?
