why can't we have 1 decent Super Rugby team out of 5? Unfortunately, we can't even cobble together a decent Wallabies team out of these 5.

I was in Brisbane for Saturday's game. You be right nath. No joy for the wallabies there. I don't think the bledisoe is going to anywhere near close this year.

To emphasise how ridiculous this competition has become, the top Aussie team is now 19 points behind the bottom NZ team but still qualifies for the play offs.

After a ridiculous season of matches the mighty Lions play the Saders today. The level of whining from NZ has already reached all time highs.

The really good news is that the two culled SA teams have already joined a NH competition. Hopefully we can scrap this and put a decent tournament in place.

Pulver resigns too.

I actually saw him in our local coffee shop on the weekend - he looked quite relaxed actually.

Meh, I think he's done a pretty good job. The NRL has had many more controversies since Gallop moved on (his biggest challenge was the Storm salary cap rort and he handled it well). He's done nothing wrong at the A-League (they've had a great run since he took over).

Very easy to say "he is shit" without backing it up.

The crash would have to also take out their 2nd and 3rd teams for the Wallies to have a chance.

18 August 2017
Mr Cameron Clyne
Chairman
Australian Rugby Union
Ground Floor,29-57 Christie Street
St Leonards, NSW, 2065
Dear Chairman and ARU Board of Directors,
I am a major supporter of rugby and our national team, the Wallabies. I am also a philanthropist and
business leader who has become deeply concerned by your disrespectful behaviour to rugby, its
national support base and blatant disregard for good governance.
You fabricated deception by stating you would meet me after the arbitration but instead chose to
attempt to eliminate the Western Force the instant the arbitration concluded.
This cynical behaviour was met with an injunction to offer a final opportunity for a collaborative
discussion. This was also met with rejection by you. You have consistently refused to release the
“big spreadsheet” that purportedly supports your decision to eliminate the second best performing
Australian Super Rugby side, with the fastest growing grass roots support base. It is already the third
largest in Australia.
I have made it abundantly clear to the ARU, that my support extends nationally but is predicated on
the national union conforming to the basic values of the game which seeks to nurture, support, and
grow rugby on a national footprint.
This is not leadership. It is shockingly poor governance. The current crisis you have created is a
neglect of your duties as Directors and a fundamental breach of your duties to the game.
As an Australian philanthropist and businessman, who is offering my full support to the Western
Force, to RugbyWA and rugby generally in Australia, your approach to hiding behind litigation,
instead of leadership, is personally and deeply upsetting to me. I do expect to be treated respectfully
and I do not expect to be lied to, then repeatedly, denied an audience with you.
The continual refusal to consider alternative solutions to the short-sighted and morally corrupt
process you have, secretly, undertaken to exterminate the Western Force, is a terrible indictment
of your stewardship.
Next week, RugbyWA will contest in the New South Wales Supreme Court, the Arbitrator’s
interpretation of the “Alliance Agreement” which you have used to attempt to terminate the
Western Force and to avoid meeting with me. Rugby in Australia and Western Australia deserves a
future unstained by your falsehoods and incompetence.
Win or lose the appeal, my support for the Western Force will not waiver and action to overturn
your irresponsible decision will continue.
I remain willing to meet with you to confirm the future financial viability of the Western Force, and
to assist you in making a decision that has the support of your members and the broader Australian
public.
Chairman, if you continue to refuse to meet with me, and if the ARU Board are unwilling to compel
you, then I call on the Board to immediately resign and be replaced with leaders who are willing to
act in the best interest of Australian rugby.
Yours sincerely,
Andrew Forrest AO
