Has the Oz public on tenterhooks.

Super Rugby Grand Final teams: 'Talisman' rushed back for Blues, Chiefs dig deep into hooker stocks

I went to the same school as Donaldson and would like him to be the 10 but Noah is way better at the moment . I was also the first person on the Roar to predict Donaldson as a wallaby at the howls of Twas and other Roarers.

'Ardie Savea to the Tahs', and Aussies should 'win a few games': Chair's bizarre fix for Super Rugby bin fire

Yeah where is this pot of gold coming from, the lions tickets I suppose?

It’s dead as a competition, alive as a selection trials. So make it shorter and fairer , everyone plays each other once during Super summer season at night.

What is Super Rugby actually for: Do we want it to be the sport's equivalent of the NRL and AFL - or just its Sheffield Shield?

Cook is at the end , good buy by the dragons but his best days were yesteryear.

Noah is the best by a mile but he definitely needs some sprint training. He has no zip zip

Eddie truly leaves his mark on the wallabies for at least a decade. First time he depowered the scrum, the 2nd stint he sacrificed the youth in the over the top like world war 1 suicidal mission – smash and burn that left the wallabies severely mentally scarred. The exodus of youth. Just imagine we lose to Georgia and Wales. Then we will have reached rock bottom . Thanks Eddie RA through remuneration thought you did a fantastic job.

I suppose it only takes three years for any NZer to become a wallaby. It is the only way the Bledisloe Cup will come back to Australia. All blacks vs leftovers in gold jerseys.

Yeah it is too long. The quality is there but

'Ardie Savea to the Tahs', and Aussies should 'win a few games': Chair's bizarre fix for Super Rugby bin fire

Super is the most convoluted, unfair , expensive. supporter unfriendly competition in the world. It is dead set ridiculous. the whole NSW public get two home games a month yet the players get paid equivalent to th the PANTHERS. The players and administrators are taking the scmeichel. No output but plenty of mula. I thought super was a. Selection. Trials so why bring in Ardie and other NZers. No point winning if the Tahs are full of ABS

'Ardie Savea to the Tahs', and Aussies should 'win a few games': Chair's bizarre fix for Super Rugby bin fire

Twiggy in RA out.. you can’t have a following in NSW where there is 2 games a month in the biggest state and half of those games are against opposition of no tribal importance. Now Ardie is going to save Oz rugby. Tell us your plan PHIL. First Eddie then Scmidty now Ardie. Ffs

'Ardie Savea to the Tahs', and Aussies should 'win a few games': Chair's bizarre fix for Super Rugby bin fire

Yeah blame the rugby supporters and grassroots but give the Rebels an indefinite supply of debt. No logic

The Wrap: The sublime and the disappointingly familiar crash head-on in Super Rugby’s semi-final weekend

Geoff’s answer is to keep to the Status quo. No change just pump up players and coaches wages.

The Wrap: The sublime and the disappointingly familiar crash head-on in Super Rugby’s semi-final weekend

Tahs for instance has the most players and supporters gets two games a month . There is no marketing and no tribalism as not many care about this corporate entity . Clubs will bring tribalism back and more Sydney teams will mean more income and less costs. This idea of expansion has been a huge costly experiment. Geoff and Twas arguments are ridiculous and haven’t worked.

I know this is a wild idea but how about put teams in and focus on where the players and supporters of rugby are. Revolutionary idea where Geoff and co reckon we need teams in every area apart from where the players and spectators are. How about revitalising Brisbane and Sydney to get the fans and pathways going.

The Wrap: The sublime and the disappointingly familiar crash head-on in Super Rugby’s semi-final weekend

The clubs would pay for the majority of funds with say Ra paying about $5mill . Lot cheaper than super with triple the crowds at triple the games. Super provides one game every two weeks for the state of NSW. Ridiculous how are you meant to get support or interest.

The Wrap: The sublime and the disappointingly familiar crash head-on in Super Rugby’s semi-final weekend

Where have all Eddie’s psychologists gone.

The Wrap: The sublime and the disappointingly familiar crash head-on in Super Rugby’s semi-final weekend

All comes down to no supporters, no money, huge debt due to extremely over exorbitant wages for players and coaches. Total incompetence.

'Insidious and arrogant': A diehard Melbourne supporter on what really killed the Rebels

You Geoff now have to see That Super ain’t cutting it, people ie grassroots aren’t interested. It should be reduced to10 rounds. Clubs arE the answer. Not 10 but a 20 club national comp. NZ could develop the NRC or have their own 12 super comp. You can’t every year Geoff say Super is the answer when no one watches it. Super must be run at a huge loss like your glorified Rebels illustrated. Business as usual that you suggest is no longer a valid argument.
