    The answer to that is up to you X. It's only about a week since you declared yourself part of " us experts on the East Coast, you know the Shute Shield crowd -". I think you'd have to rescind your membership there. They are the loudest RA critics by a long chalk. Then stop reading every news outlet except the Telecrap and SMH. Then confine yourself to watching only the Fox Sports sycophants. That should do it.

    Oh, yeh: about JO'C. I think everyone will love him again when he actually walks the walk, no drama.

    Might be a while. They also have another ammo belt chock full of bullets marked Warner and pockets full of Smiths and Bancrofts. Plenty of which will be fired at Old Trafford next week.

    I get where you're coming from X, but jeez, James OConnor being part of the RWC? After doing the hard yards in Stupor Rugby for years, forgoing the big bucks and extravagant Euro lifestyle..NOT! That shows exactly what a broken corrupt system Rugby in Australia has become. As to JOC, the guy has done exactly NOTHING to earn anybody's respect. The last we heard (after the debacle at Perth Airport) was him getting arrested and charged with drug violations in France. Now he's welcomed back to Thornes squeaky clean Reds. Sheesh, what do you expect peoples reaction to be

    Well, at least this time they can't throw a match to keep us out of the semi-finals like they did in '92

    Latest Fox Sports Tripe lists JOC as a "shock ommission" from the Wallabies squad touring South Africa.......

    From a pariah to saviour in one signature

    To be fair we tried to return the favour in 1999.

    OK - First up - James O'Connor hasn't been selected for the RWC Squad - yet.

    And if he does get selected. Does that say more about the lack of talent here in Australia? Or is it all about James?

    Here is my problem/issue/complaint about today



    Once upon a time - TWF was shining light of Rugby goodness in a world where the forums were the home of positivity and glowing with goodness.

    Now-a-day the collective members of TWF - no I am not singling out you - we see a RA under every bed. A hidden message in every press statement and anyone who used to play for the Western Force and now has the audacity to play for another team is considered the Devil.

    I am a supporter of the Western Force, I am a supporter of the Wallabies. I love that my home town of Geraldton has a team in the Perth competition and that they are doing well. I love that my club here in Sydney is playing Rugby now for 128 years. I love the game of Rugby Union.

    The game of Rugby is bigger then a group of clueless suits that sit in a boardroom in Moore Park.

    Only one point of correction x

    JOC made himself the devil when he left the force so acrimoniously. I have had nothing but good things to say about some ex-forcemen.

    K-bomb, when he left for England for instance, I was devastated, but only had praise for a loyal servant.

    Michael Ruru is a more recent example, so disappointed that he's sitting behind a soulless hype merchant at the Rebs.

    Dont confuse the fact that I think he's a dick and he used to play for the force as causation

    Jeez X he hasn't been at the Force since 2011 !! He was very much appreciated here until Graham ruined the whole shebang. He's been a douche everywhere else since then. THATS what he is mostly judged on. Sure, his effort at abandoning ship was a sign of things to come, and made him pretty much the ONLY reviled ex Force player. He has never rectified those perceptions.

    And yes, RA is under every bed, because Clyne is a control freak and RA has become a complete farce, the worst run sporting organisation ever. And that's saying a lot, given both incarnations of soccer here, ZA rugby, Tennis Australia, the 87 America's Cup defence, English sport as a whole etc etc
