He inspired me!…?

Though I was merely interpreting a prophet from the book of “Roy and HG” 😂

The Wrap: Giteau’s Law must survive, but with a twist

Thanks GP. aBJ still at it? When does he stop banging his drum?
btw, I have no opinion re law for Gits
I dont consider Picone pack as gits:
– counting four so far
– I think more will leave
– As it is widely accepted. You join an organisation
– …but you leave the boss
The problem is, imo, as you mentioned as a principle, is at home
Same for especially the state of the game ie the local market:
– RARA needs to grow it properly
– Especially Qld NSW
– And explain how they are going to do that
– Then the exodus would stymie
Meantime Gits law etc and other stop gaps etc wont have meaningful impact. Unless were banging on the international game again, like aBJ
As HG Nelson infamously said. “The Wallabies are the most corporatised team in Australia” (or something like it). Means the essence of our sport has been reduced to money, sponsors, contracts… and agents who purvey it.

– BB is Biltong Bek. Corne’s original online name
– CLBG is Company Limited by Guarantee
– RARA. you will have to guess that one, if youre in the mood
I hope it made your day!

Reds trio refuse to take pay cut, stood down by QRU

haha

Thanks BeeMc

Footy in July. Yaaay! Next year? Too far to figure.

Unless you’re a genius like SANZAAR and the POTUS

SANZAAR fighting a losing Super Rugby battle on two fronts

100% BB. RARA, starting from the days of Castle:
– havent planned this from the players perspective
– This started with confrontation with RUPA (which is a member of RA themselves)
– This is what happens when you ask hard nosed corporate types to run a CLBG
This is an example of our ineptitude. Compounded by a stupid / one-sided / one-eyed announcement. Theres is obviously two or more sides of this story:
– which will obviously come out
– Instead RA, rolling yet another coach (like BT v QC) to present this issue as a loyalty / culture issue
– As opposed to a contract / financial matter that involves the QRU and BT… again
QC, Samu K, Rodda gone. Then two more budding greats. Meanwhile were stuck with BT loyalists the likes of Hamish Steward and CFS!
QRU and RA portrays this as selfish betrayal which sounds like a powerful sound bite… for a day or so. Looks like quite a few here have been baited, which is a reasonable response given the context of the announcement.
I hope there aren’t any more egg faces or worse ala Izzy and QC:
– All involved are Queenslanders
– Sheer coincidence!?

We would call it the cold tub club

The Wrap: Cauliflower Club a shining light in Australian rugby

Thanks GP. Looks like fun. Are ex-RARA CEOs invited?

Queensland should have one. Wonder what we should call it?

you may be right in the end. Nick

Though for me, I’ll wait til they announce the team. whenever that is!

Why Nic White should be the next Wallabies captain

its exactly two MrChook!

Why Nic White should be the next Wallabies captain

haha. Its a running commentary about the two failed ROAR journalists
They are based in Aus. MrChook knows who they are
He trained them personally 😂

Why Nic White should be the next Wallabies captain

At least you’re not a #failedjournalist

Why Nic White should be the next Wallabies captain

No specific name yet Nick. Lost / losing track who’s left after the post RWC shuffle

Why Nic White should be the next Wallabies captain

Thanks for the article. Overly central management is the reason many things are a mess in this world. Rugby in Australia is just another example.

There is no way someone in Mosman will be able to know whats happening in Central Highlands Junior RU in Emerland and many like it. Getting RARA to allocate / manage their budgets will be a disaster

The objective should be to strengthen then empower the states, esp Qld and NSW districts.

To save Aussie rugby we must scrap the states

Thank Nick. I like White. Hes certainly one of the leaders.

But Im not sure he will captain the WBs

I think our captain should be a forward.

Thanks AJ

The siege on Castle in review

Lol. good one

If the Ricoh Cup is still in the Ballymore cupboard. then its probably by itself haha. So dont touch it! Otherwise we got nothing!
So Castle is Robert Baratheon?
– Wiggs and Carroll is Cersei and Jamie Lannister?
Eleven 10 captains are the Stark family
– FOX / NEWS are the white walkers (quite literally?)
– NSW is Westeros
– Queesland is Dorne
– Twiggy is Daenerys. Khal Drogo is Izzy

WTW (Worse than Wuhan)

The Wrap: Overreach stops Rugby Australia coup dead in its tracks

Thanks GP. Interesting read.
“NSW” won, then lost this campaign. But cockroaches survive nuclear blasts, then come back in droves! Wait for it!

The Wrap: Overreach stops Rugby Australia coup dead in its tracks

inlaws should be outlawed

Which laws of rugby union need changing?

Thanks James. Good grief 76 match unbeaten run. Id be happy with 7 or 6.

I heard French Rugby will rapidly reduce overseas players is on the cards, even before Wuhan
