    Is there a possibility of keeping RA snouts out of the mix? I can just imagine their eyes lighting up at getting access to more cash. Would imagine Twiggy being a driving force behind WA Govís bid.

    There would need to be a significant building program for WA to host the World Cup on its own, but McGowan has been promising to do stuff to support the construction industry

    THey would need to build a 100,000 seat stadium for a start, preferably a new one, not an extension of Optus

    Even then, you can't run a World Cup with three venues (Optus, HBF, WACA) they would need at least one more

    Hosting a Final in Perth is better for SA, European and Japanese audiences. Thatís where the main viewing audiences are. Hosting the tournament in NZ was a big mistake. Some of the games were on at 4:30 in Europe like Ireland v Italy. Neither support base could watch the match at that hour. The stadiums were appalling. Ireland filled out Wembley against Romania in 2015. The games in Newcastle sold out. Thatís why NZ should never host it again. They canít compete against that.

    That RWC is one of the reasons why the exorbitant bid fee was brought in.

    Good to see some things never change. Tahs still suck. Kearns is still a dick, spending half the match bitching about Nick Berry's officiating. Bad to see Australian players still making schoolboy execution errors after having months to practice.

    Got to remember most have been practicing on their own which probably makes them onanists!

    And the fitness level of the Tahs was atrocious, they stuffed after the first 15 minutes.
