    Faith? Mine's all used up.

    I wouldn't stress too much. Players will come and go. At this stage, the Force is at NRC level. There are plenty of players who will see the Force as a good opportunity to get paid full-time and develop their game to take to the next level.

    It is what it is. We'll still see plenty of good talent wear the jersey. The three boys who came over to play for the Force in NRC are all chasing full-time contracts.

    After GRR gets a footprint, then you'll see the Force's stocks grow. Who knows, when foxtel re-shapes what rugby program they think they can make money out of, you may see a hybrid GRR/Super Rugby format.

    That’s why Will Miller signed with the Brumbies.

    It is a shame there is no proper structure to the NRC though; it will be galling to see him run out for Melbourne next year. But that said, a proper structure probably would have had him playing for one of the NSW teams while with us anyway.
    Ive always thought NRC should of been a bit of a state of origin thing. Would of been good to see how each state was tracking, NSW could of had extra teams since they are the supposed heartland. Then bitched like the Vics did when West Coast first started for being "practically a state team"

    If only NSW could got over the Shute shield they would of nationalised the comp with a majority of teams in their backyard and just been like the VFL I mean AFL

    They use to run a state wide comp and it was complete shit. It was the Australian Rugby Shield. The Australian Rugby Championship [ARC] Born from the vision of Gary Flowers and later morphing into the NRC is what many believe is exactly what Australia needs and is the perfect breeding ground for Auatralian talent. If only NSW took it more seriously, the NSW RUGBY Union are a rugby cesspit.

    The difference with the ARS was it being, pretty much, for amateur players. Basically, old skool style rep teams selected from the club comps in each region.

    It's expensive to run a national comp on that basis for unsigned talent. They did recreate a cut-down version of ARS last year called The Emerging States Championship (most teams weren't states so the name was a bit naff) but it is to give non-NRC unions a comp to participate in.

    With NRC/ARC, a fair chunk - probably the majority - of players are contracted. So it's a more targeted development path.
