So force now confirmed as 5th team - tick
Broadcast deal discussion with Foxtel still happening - time ticking away there.
And someone with better bargaining chip to get RA to listen as they certainly seem to have been tone deaf to the fans leaving super rugby in droves.
And why most of us on here don’t have a problem with any of twiggys demands! As most of us been asking for same things for a very long time.
Fully understand the dialogue but RA in dire position and to be frank nothing Forest proposing that challenging for me but yes for traditionalists.
So I read this is Forrest not closed to something with RA but on his terms and more aligned to what looking to achieve with global rapid rugby -.
My concern is we get to 1000 pages and we are still debating this super rugby thing whilst meanwhile we have the parties still committed to super.
So time ticking - are Foxtel playing ball - are Sunwolves in or out - is a mooted barbarian team a possibility - so many questions at this point and.
Yeh 5 oz sides with 5 nz sides - unless open borders policy - tell them their dreaming
Agree - I don’t think anybody in a position to sign new players without any broadcast deal
Reg not like lot of other options - would rather this if means get more games
At this point I would just be happy hearing there is definitely a domestic comp
After lot of reflection i must say I agree we should try to do something without nz but have a champions league style follow on. As only way trans.
Spot on OC we have to try things to reinvigorate our game and running say a 1-2 game SOO series in one season as a trial /proof of concept is.
Yep just need an ABN to qualify.
Poor bugger covid casualty and good coach
Anthony Picone ie their manager has history here and ugly history with Kerevi as we all know with Reds reaction to Kerevi signing to Japan..
Kiap we are talking about travel between oz and nz by September as part of the bubble travel nations so as far as time frames for trans tasman comp.
Comment was about 10 team comp with 5 oz sides - I will never support a trans Tasman comp with nz with closed borders as would mean less oz sides.
Unless there is open borders policy I can’t see a ten team trans competition working as don’t have depth to match nz with same number of sides.
So 3 reds players with Anthony piccone as their manager - player agent - same one reds had issue with after kerevi business.
Piccone proving reds.
