“dates were agreed with SA insisting on 6 weeks“

Badger you are talking absolute nonsense.. it was broadcasters that insisted on a 6 week double header format. It’s over deal with it.

Underdone Argentina postpone Waratahs game

In a pandemic Manu it’s not arrogant to put welfare ahead of money, and lets face facts the Los Pumas are only playing because of money and not some fantasy about honor.

Underdone Argentina postpone Waratahs game

This makes sense especially since their entire squad is still not able to train together which is strange as the whole reason why the competition was moved to NSW was so that the entire squads could be placed in team bubbles. Obviously that was fake news or the RA was lying about their team quarantine facilities…
Now we have a situation where the Los Pumas European players are in hotels not able to interact with their teams or even train…
And people wonder why the Boks pulled out. Maybe they found out about the team bubble quarantine deception.

Underdone Argentina postpone Waratahs game

There were two legs holding up SANZAAR and it was NZR that unilaterally decided to amputate the Super Rugby leg. That was a fatal blow and it is only a matter of time before we see the other leg get hacked off. I am waiting for the next SANZAAR executive meeting to see the fireworks show. Going light will not help anything and lets hope so.

The quick questions: Blame games and compensation claims

Well he is SANZAAR and he gave the 48 hour extension, so by reason the original date for a decision was given as 48 hours before the extension. No surprise here.

Perhaps, but it could easily have been zero and even it is 50% of the original deal it’s better than nothing. He also knew about the conditions and seemingly accepted it anyway, so I don’t know why he is surprised that conditions for participation were not met.

Ok so you do know about the other SANZAAR company and you are spot on saying that one of the owners will logically insist on taking cuts on future earnings. My bad.

The quick questions: Blame games and compensation claims

You seem to know much about the SANZAAR company based in Sydney, how about the one based in Luxembourg? Read up about what they do, the collective agreements, who the owners are, etc.

The quick questions: Blame games and compensation claims

He is totally clueless. I bet he doesn’t even know how many SANZAAR companies there are or what they even do.

The quick questions: Blame games and compensation claims

“It will cost us quite a lot of money but we’ll find a way through it,” McLennan said.

Maybe he should read the minutes. RA were only entitled to host 3 matches as per the RC agreement. They are hosting 6 matches. He should stop deceiving the public and tell it as it is as per the minutes and not his notes.

So think of it. You are one-third owner of company selling broadcast rights and signing up sponsors collecting revenue etc.
Then you put all of that revenue in a pot and share it equally amongst the other owners. Now you sold something and the revenue is in the pot, after renegotiations obviously. Do you think that as one-third owner you are not entitled to the dividends.
Now guess what one of the owners of the company just so happens to be called SA Rugby, not SARU. So yeah they still get their share, maybe they will not get their share of gate takings but that’s a small loss.

The quick questions: Blame games and compensation claims

No they sold their souls to the devil for money. They are not angels stop kidding yourself.

The quick questions: Blame games and compensation claims

Or how about a team of retired veterans. Let’s start with the 10 infamous captains, Campo, Eroni Clarke, Read, McCaw, Gregan and Eales to name a few.

The quick questions: Blame games and compensation claims

Bobby the contract states that each nations gets to host 3 home matches guaranteed. So logically this is not the agreed to competition as per the contract. Get it..

The quick questions: Blame games and compensation claims

It’s been nearly a week now and surely that’s more than enough time for people to go through the seven stages of grief to get to acceptance.

Now that that’s out of the way it is time to get to understanding. This competition may be called the RC but it is not. It is some makeshift competition loosely agreed to by parties based on certain caveats. Read the notes people. Read McLennan’s notes for understanding and have your 3N and be content with it.

The quick questions: Blame games and compensation claims

What are you saying. If teams wear dazzle camouflage then they will somehow confuse match officials more that what they already are? Genius!

How Dave Rennie’s words came back to haunt him at Eden Park

Perhaps but here you have a confused Aussie ref who spent some weeks blowing to their elv law interpretations unable to show his competence and professionalism, and you have confused Aussie players not adapting from their elv experiment.
.. Is it a wonder that the Boks opted out of that circus show.

How Dave Rennie’s words came back to haunt him at Eden Park

No look again. This was interference or as refs say cynical play before Tuipolutu got in the way.

How Dave Rennie’s words came back to haunt him at Eden Park

In this instance, Patrick Tuipolutu makes a dominant hit on Matt To’omua and gets in the way on the first Australian support player, James Slipper
In the second video notice how the AB player (no 12) slows Slipper down on his way to the ruck. That split second off the ball play is enough to ensure turn over ruck ball.

This brutal 9.5 month schedule does not take into account squad rotation which is common practice in the Top14. But anyway let’s call it 9.5 months of non stop rugby.

Let’s then also invite Hooper. I’ll make sure that there are some cashew nuts on the table.

The Wrap: Player welfare no concern as All Blacks take it up a notch in Auckland

Well obviously as you can see the Boks don’t care either. You should have taken note of the caveats attached to the deal instead spending the time talking about Canes Christmas lunch or the minute notes.

The Wrap: Player welfare no concern as All Blacks take it up a notch in Auckland

I read that they are about to secure a new broadcast deal. Although more than a year after SAR and NZR secured theirs. Better than late than never or just in time would you not say.

Andy I’ll direct you you the official SA Rugby statement or the dozens of articles in the mainstream media that explains in great detail everything

I’ll invite you for some whine and cheese.
