    Another great episode.

    Did anyone else do a double take when Stooke said that the reason why he was recused from ARU board discussions was because they had been monitoring Mark Sinderberry’s emails and saw one from Stooke saying that he and his family had bought shares in the Own the Force initiative?

    That the ARU was monitoring Sinderberry’s emails without his knowledge is shocking in the extreme!

    What a despicable organisation they are.

    Yes. But was I shocked? No.

    Not after those bullshitters sat in the Senate Enquiry and denied knowledge of all the other bastardry involved. Some of which was also ridiculously hilarious - like the magically appearing copy of the ARU/Rugby WA alliance on North's desk. it showed to anyone interested that they were prepared to say and/or do anything to cover their tracks - and didn't give a second's thought to the reputational damage they were self-inflicting.

    reputational damage?

    Like setting yourself up for lengthy stints as a well paid executive with no KPIs? I'd happily suffer some of that kind of damage

    No I was not shocked either, after I re-read all those Nick Taylor articles a few days ago. I am sure Stooke could tell a lot more ARU dirty tricks stories, but he is too much of rugby lover and wants to move on and rebuild rugby in Australia. You will notice that he never dumps on individuals, even in that email monitoring story.
