    The "Wallatahs" have become a reality that seems awfully close to the age-old cricket joke of NSW players getting their baggy green in a paper bag when they make their Sheffield Shield debut.
    That's not a volley, it's a smash!

    There is going to be a compromise with the times as Twiggy is keen on Fiji for obvious reasons.

    Boy over the past two days I have seen some dumb comments from Tahs fans in particular on the Roar and G&G. They are suggesting that the Brumbies, Rabble and Force be restricted to the NRC and feed in to the Reds and Tahs so they can play a three match series as a test trial. They also think that the rest of the country will get behind these two teams. Those ideas are worse than the RA's recent decisions. Absolutely deluded. No way will Brumbies fans and players tolerate their side being used as a feeder for the Tahs and they will never support them.

    Even worse, as has been extensively proven at the rebels, you can take virtually an entire starting team from a club which has an incredible culture an put them in a compromised environment, he players trend towards the environment, not the other way around.

    The tahs can't fix Aussie rugby because of the prevailing culture that suggests that all they need to do is be loved by the media and they're the best players in the world.

    If they are so short of money who is paying for the so-called statue of Mr Nobody????

    Queensland rugby foundation, a funding body created to promote rugby for the grass roots. Obviously qld clubs have no greater need than a statue honouring the man who assisted in the total breakdown of the game.

    That doesn't look anywhere near 15k attendance.. infact is this there lowest ever crowd? It is pathetic. So not even the $15,000 incentive could do anything to bring back the fans..

    Probably about 12,000 there. 4pm on a Sunday is a terrible time for a match.

    Good to see Godwin run in to space and show off his passing game. How much of his injury problems were due to running in to contact on the crash.

    The Meninga Stand looks pretty full. The idea of playing a day match is to play in the day not an hour under lights.

    The AFL tried 4pm twilight matches in Melbourne the fans hated it.

    Both sides of the stand where the camera faces are completly empty & both end stands are pretty much empty too.

    So basically...

    One of the main stands is about 4/5th full
    The opposite stand is about 2/5ths full
    Both end stands are pretty much empty.

    The stand you are looking at on the tv is the Gregan Larkham stand which has a lot of corporate seats. Some of the seats in front of the boxes belong to corporate box holders.
