    Castle is in Japan for a few more weeks attending SANZAAR and World Rugby meetings and will work to establish the terms of the review."


    It is reassuring to know that in spite of the Wallabies' failure at the RWC, the Moet and the caviar canapés will continue to sustain the ARU/RA's hard working C-Suite in Japan. One assumes that Ms Castle et al. will, as compensation for staying on, have best seats for the forthcoming RWC semi-finals and the RWC Grand Final.

    It's a tough job, but somebody 's got to do it.
    Moet? More like 1959 Dom Perignon for that lot.

    Rugby Australia chief executive Raelene Castle was left visibly upset after a heated verbal stoush with Wallabies coach Michael Cheika at a cocktail function at the Australian embassy in Tokyo during the World Cup.

    In an incident that was symptomatic of the degenerating relationship between two of Australia's highest-ranking rugby officials, multiple sources have told the Herald that former Wallaby Morgan Turinui was forced to intervene to stop Cheika and Castle tearing into each other in front of dozens of guests at the embassy in Tokyo's Azabu Juban district.

    I fail to understand the amazement at the outcome. Appointing persons known to have dual code affiliations is a recipe for disaster.
