Over and greenandgold they are reporting that RA have a package of around 400 games to sell.

He’s a dirty Kiwi spy dressed in a woke exterior, sent to live among us in order to destabilize rugby and NFL here in the West. 😱

Welcome back – where ya been?

Apparently over on rugbyheaven, SU stalwart “Mortimer” is a favorite as the next RA chairman.
What do you know of him?

it might be better to let the clubs have a go and then build a gateway from clubs to Super rugby
Seriously? I can see friends of SU, the most parochial inward looking set up in the game, going all out to promote the game country wide.

Just a thought. I seem to remember back in the old days when a cricket test match was not broadcast live in the city the test was playing.
What about only a delayed telecast by let’s say 12 hours being broadcast in the home town? If you want to see and support your team then get off your rotund rear and go watch them live.
The way things are going we may as well set up a “studio” somewhere and stream all the games from there. Just imagine the savings on stadia costs etc. You then brand it with a nice red Netflix original logo.

100% agree.

They beat the Tahs so why not axe them as well?

The Wrap: The Sunwolves and Super Rugby’s shame file

Not sure I can feel any shame for hating the conference system, its proved unpopular with the fans and further weakened Australian Super Rugby teams.

Continually playing derbies robs us of the chance of playing better opponents and learning from the experience. Brumbies looked great until last weekend against a weakened team from NZ which has also been the case in years past for other Aussie teams.

Axing the most popular team in SR (by way of fans who front up) is just ludicrous, considering as you suggest that our future may lie to the North. SA rugby wrecks the joint and then leaves to party elsewhere, however AUS/NZ are also part of SANZAR and they are collectively to blame for this decision.

utter failure with Fiji showing all the super sides / nrc sides up

So how is it they didn’t win the comp?

National club comp lacking a grassroots perspective

A lot has been said about the lack of “ownership” from supporters for NRC sides. It doesn’t help that RA keeps changing and tinkering with teams and competition every second year. For the entire West coast there is definitely a “tribal” connection to the Force as it is now our only connection to a national competition. Cutting the NRC would be a big mistake, the CC will not replace it as a pathway to the professional game.

Perhaps an “Eastern” club competition (lets not call it national because it wont be) would help to fuel support and the much vaunted “tribal” aspect if the clubs were truly aligned with an NRC team.

I’m sure the irony is not lost on most that RA has now hitched its wagon to the Shute shield and amateur rugby, a competition it once derided, as it’s savior. RA is now relying on the largess of all the volunteers that keep club land running, a group for which is has previously shown scant regard and treated with disdain, to pull it out of a mess of its own making.

Lets wait until they play a decent team.

Why Warren Gatland is winning the battle of the basics

Did you think that one up all by yourself – so clever, such profundity.

The woke Waratahs need some resilience to become winners

And yet it’s that bland vanilla homogenized sameness that bores us all stupid.

The woke Waratahs need some resilience to become winners

Really?? Big crowds, world cup wins, etc all came about during “Spiro’s generation”. You exhibit exactly the problem being discussed – always someone else’s fault.
Competition has never distorted the development of sport, in fact the healthy competition you deride (in all areas of life) is what drives us all to greater achievement.

And the three answers shall be “more of the same”, “more of the same” and “more of the same”.

Wise choice: Scott Wisemantel new attack coach as Wallabies confirm multiple appointments

Things will never change while the NSW/QLD voting block at board level remains the same. A complete change to the structure and voting system at RA is required but lets face it – “tell him he’s dreamen”.
