Greyjoys are competent, can you imagine NSWRU managing a raid without all crashing into each other and sinking?

'Easy to throw stones': RA chairman hits back at mudslingers' 'hypocrisy' after calls for AGM board cleanout

When did Phil Waugh last visit any QLD clubs?
Let alone Vic or WA

We don’t all owe allegiance to NSW, you’re not the Lannisters.

'Easy to throw stones': RA chairman hits back at mudslingers' 'hypocrisy' after calls for AGM board cleanout

Hi Russ

Would you not think that’s a huge workload for a small interim board to get through in 1 year?

What’s the plan if it turns out to be too much, will the interim board stay on?

Yeah the more I watch replays this week the more his vision is becoming apparent

The Crusaders certainly seemed to think so too, but he looked solid enough to me.

How many did he miss?

He tackled pretty darn well on Saturday, he’s always been capable

Russ do you not consider that an overwhelming workload for a board to get through in one year?

What is to happen if timeframes aren’t met?

Not sure the bookies have been paying attention looking at that though – 1 win Saders so far ahead of the 5 from 8 Rebels?

Exactly, it’s like the problem isn’t that it’s jobs for the boys, just not the right boys.

Isn’t that the problem?

RugbyPass – it names itself.
App you download and pay a subscription for.
Hell there’s already NFL GamePass we could copy
Could even make an approach to the NRL and Superleague and televise league games too

I’m sure social media allowing every clown access to public comment had something to do with it too

And he’s a former Wallaby captain, AND a forward (ie intelligent).

Hard to imagine someone better qualified, really.

The cynic in me suggests that the huge amount of work to be done cannot be completed in 12 months, at which point – oh dear – the ‘interim’ board will just have to stay in place until it is. They made a commitment after all.
Seriously, that’s 4 or 5 year’s work for a board to my eye – even without accounting for how some projects can’t be begun properly until others are completed.

Yeah my concern is that all this worry that “the rugby community” have a voice, is really a worry that “the NSW rugby community” have all the say.
Maybe we need a US style electoral college

To put it bluntly that is a shedload of work for an interim board to get through in 12 months.

I don’t want to say it can’t be done, but realistically I don’t think it can.

What is the contingency?

Does the interim board stay in place until all these projects are completed?

Yes we need to all calm down a bit
Beale and Rodda had solid returns to the game.
Let’s leave it at that for now

I dunno if I’d forego making a tackle on the off chance of knocking the ball on and giving them a scrum.

Yeah it’s when your RWC campaign goes to pieces and you retroactively plan for it to be a building tournament instead of a smash and grab.

Well it’s already illegal to interfere with the half from the ruck, and 9s are already fair game once they pick the ball up – can’t see it being all that different.

Then it would be a penalty try yeah?

Possibly, I personally think it would only come up on the odd occasion of a three man overlap when an outnumbered defender makes a last ditch play at the ball.

Don’t forget either, unless he picks it up himself, it’s still play on, advantage, not necessarily a stoppage.

I’d rather scrums in a RWC final than it decided by yellow cards.

But I don’t work for World Rugby.

Check and mate

Everyone is envisioning a rugby field full of defenders getting between the attacking players, but really, that opens the field right up for the offence – I can’t see that happening.
