    No way known that Cameron is going anywhere before his junket to Japan later in the year.

    I know; sadly his first interest is himself and what rugby can do for him.

    Under the constitution I think he can re-nominate for another 3 years. The max he can serve is 9 years all up and I reckon he’ll want to do that.

    Impossible. Rugby won't survive that long under his tenure.

    Somehow I don't think Cameron Clyne cares what Alan Jones thinks of him.

    Castle and Clyne along with the rest of those clowns in the ivory tower get together and convince each other that they are doing a great job. The usual language .... best for the job in challenging times blah blah blah ....... look what we’ve achieved.....blah blah blah . Sorted that pesky religious nut Folau...blah blah blah ....meanwhile rugby goes down the tubes with one massive cock up after another. FFS !

    And further to that; I agree with RA's stance on Folau. Because he broke his word in blatantly contravening the code of conduct and then inflicting ever increasing damage to the game. What I don't get is how JO'C can have punitive clauses put in his contract but somehow Folau could not have had the same - according to RA and RUPA.

    The star observer photo explained. Folau only too happy to take the money and do the shoot.. hypocrite or just a fool?


    Rugby: Editor reveals how Israel Folau became a gay pin-up boy

    26 Jul, 2019 4:00pm 3 minutes to read

    Elias Jahshan, who edited the Star Observer from 2013 to 2016, has revealed how Israel Folau ended up on the cover of the gay magazine.

    The August 2014 issue has been recirculated regularly since the ex-Wallabies star was sacked by Rugby Australia for posting messages to social media that included homophobic language.

    His willingness to pose in support of a gay rugby tournament five years ago seems a head-scratcher and Jahshan — in a piece discussing his time at the magazine, which is celebrating its 40th birthday — has revealed "Folau was never my first choice".

    "We initially wanted David Pocock — arguably rugby union's most visible and vocal straight ally for the LGBTQI community (and all-round dream boat) — but he wasn't available. He was also playing for the ACT Brumbies, and I remember the Bingham Cup media team being keen on giving us Waratahs players since Sydney was hosting the event," Jahshan wrote

    "We couldn't interview Folau, but we quoted a Bingham Cup spokesman saying he was against all forms of discrimination. I heard later that Folau had been keen to be part of the photo shoot and had put on a Bingham Cup singlet with enthusiasm. There were genuinely no signs of Folau's homophobia at the time. But perhaps we were all naive.

    Hey Israel Folau – remember when we used to be friends? ��

    Having said that, had I known Folau held these views, I would've asked the Bingham Cup to find someone else to be on the cover. The way we couldn't obtain quotes from Folau directly should've been a red flag. But I can honestly say no one saw this coming. The Bingham Cup organisers never hid what they're all about, so Folau definitely would've known what he was signing up for with the photo shoot.

    "It has come to a point where I feel smug each time this front page keeps coming back to bite him. It makes Folau look hypocritical and opportunistic. Someone who cared more about his ego, rather than his beliefs. And until he genuinely redeems himself, I trust that Star Observer cover will continue to be used to highlight that hypocrisy."

    Folau addressed the cover in a piece for the Players Voice last year. "Since my social media posts were publicised, it has been suggested that I am homophobic and bigoted and that I have a problem with gay people. This could not be further from the truth," he wrote.

    "I fronted the cover of the Star Observer magazine to show my support for the Bingham Cup, which is an international gay rugby competition for both men and women. I believe in inclusion. In my heart, I know I do not have any phobia towards anyone."

    I doubt he "signed up" for the shoot. Like most things in the contract he was just sent there for PR.
