    Absolutely terrible advert. Just as bad as the old "save it for the game" ones that did pretty much nothing to promote the sport.

    I sometimes wonder why they didnt do some adverts of some high octane adrenaline fueled rugby highlights put together in an advert to show all the AFL and Non-rugby fans what our sport can produce. Instead we got the crap above which does nothing to promote non rugby playing fans. We certainly missed a huge opportunity during our super rugby days.

    Great memories, awesome commercial, sensational players.

    I still run into David Pusey about the place and he always has time for a chat, and AJ, what a cult figure back in the day, thanks Coach

    Save it for the Game was an awesome campaign.

    Ahhh the days when the RA actually had money to promote Rugby

    Yeah good find Boss. I used to get a chuckle out of the "What Would AJ Wally Do" comments on here. We had some fun around here for a long time. Just hoping things turn around for the game in WA so we can get back to all that banter. DEAD SET!

    One trip to Sydney I saw a NSW Waratahs campaign with the "Save it for Game" promotion so I assume that came from RA and they just used local players from each state.

    'nother vid I found - although there are probably other copies out there. The infamous not-try against the saders ...

    Absolutely terrible media campaign. Subsequently members and fans dropped off like flies over those 3 or 4 years during that run of adverts to the point they couldnt even get 20k at the new NIB stadium when they finally moved there.

    Sounds like you should be joining RugbyAustralia in helping to sabotage future WA growth prospects.. you would most definitely know what sort of adverts to put together to drive away the last remnants of the WA rugby fanbase

    Hey dingus, they dropped off because we were continuously shit for years with no hope for the future. Absolutely nothing about a few advertising campaigns, I had never even seen this one for example.

    I saw the 'Save it for the Game' ones coz they were great. But you don't like them either soooooo yeah, make you're own advert I suppose.

    My personal opinion is that attendances fell off partly because the Force didn't seem to progress, partly because it became increasingly obvious just how differently the Force was going to be treated by the ARU than anyone else, and a lot because it was all overlaid by a coincident campaign telling everyone that watching rugby was shit at Subiaco

    I think you are on the mark Andy. But what's the coincident campaign you refer to?

    Solid advertising campaigns are meant to try and stop that from happening. Showing the general public what good quality rugby looks like in a non rugby playing state should have been the priority. The save it for the game adverts totally missed the mark. The one in the opening post would have had absolutely no hope of attracting new fans. The media campaign back then was absolutely hopeless.
