    Got there just as The Boss finished talkind pre game. What did he say about W Sydney?

    Edit: Just saw Spartans post. Can we have a Western Force AND a Western Sydney Force? Ex will be in heaven.
    For the record.

    I will always support the Force.

    I will probably attend Western Sydney WSR matches tho.

    I will definitely contact Mideroo to see if I can remain a member of the Western Force yet get seats to Western Sydney home matches.

    My biggest concern is the support of the Penrith Emus by Andrew Forrest. The Penrith Emus are a basket case. Whilst they did have money problems. The biggest issue was their inablity to meet the Shute Shield Players Requirments. That is putting 7 teams on the paddock (4 seniors and 3 Colts teams) week in and week out. The Big teams of the Shute Shield. Randwick, Sydney Uni et al continually poach any player from Penrith that looks like they can play.

    Yeah great presser.
    It's hard to hear Nick Taylor's questions (I assume it's him) but there is one classic, asking Ian how he can talk so much without taking a breath. Brilliant. Anyone who has spoken with our captain knows exactly what he was on about. Tim has a laugh too.

    It will not be the Emus. Nick Taylor in The West story says it will be a side from Tonga and Samoa with some local talent. The Emus will be a feeder side to our WSR side.

    Getting close to a tautology there.

    I have a gut feeling it will be the Rams the make up of the side is up Twiggy and the people he has involved.

    I hope they aren't losing sight of the original ethos of WSR. The intent as first espoused was that it would be a new approach, tying the professional team to development in the local game across all of men's, women's and sevens rugby. Not sure how any of that is going to happen if an Islands team is located in Sydney and the local amateur side is aligned somewhere else completely.

    That's a good point, and I wonder whether they could secure World Rugby funding if the team doesn't play in the islands?

    My comment above re tautology was not entirely smart-arsery. The PI population in Western Sydney is huge. The Mungos are having tremendous success with their PI teams with almost all players based in NRL or State Cup teams. There is a load of talk about raising the Tonga team to Tier 1 status. They are hugely popular in the islands too. WSR can for sure include some Island domiciled players but obviously they would need to base in Sydney for the season. I get the part about development in the PI. But the big opportunity AF is looking at is in Western Sydney and the possibility of redirecting some kids there away from Rugby League into WSR.

    I thought Penrith was going to be sponsored by F45 the gym franchise owners not Minderoo

    As predicted - an absolute cracker of a game.
    Is this just a hint of things to come in 2019?

    Some fantastic camera work.
    Enjoying the change of angles and close-ups.

    Correct. I would be interested to see if Twiggy is planning on rolling out Rugby Roos in the area. If so and it is successful that will put the cat amongst the pigeons.
