    Yes they are an elite amateur club. I want to stress this isn’t a bad thing, infact they are an important cog in Aus rugby but equally they need to understand they live in a different world to other amateur clubs.

    I am a believer they are a product of the game more than the club. There is some brilliant clubs out there, I’m sure Eastwood is in the category. However if they never existed another club would of thrived, be in the highest level competition in the state, therefore attract talent, sponsors, supporters etc. the game provided this opportunity, not a collection of clubs.

    Of course it would be missed, no one is saying it wouldn’t. But there is a real sense that they are the lifeblood of the game and above the rest which just grates on so many outside the bubble.

    I have nothing against the clubs, I think they are great they just need to understand they aren’t the little guy in the fight for improvement. How it’s perceived is like people on $150k a year crying foul to the millionaires on behalf of people on $50k or less

    Did I mention earlier the low estimation in which RA held Kearns' application for CEO? There was a reason.

    My kids are about to fall asleep and my wife will come downstairs and start watching last night's MasterChef replay, a show with a bunch of people who want to be a chef, but lot slug it out in the industry and earn their stripes to get there.

    Phil Kearns is the masterchef contestant of sports administration.

    Dunno, at least what they produce on Masterchef seems to be palatable.

    Just to be pedantic, this season is former contestants who have been slugging it out since they were last on the show....

    And to be fair, most of the contestants on that show do go on to work in the industry, some of whom have worked in the top restaurants in the world.

    This is a sorry episode in Australian Rugby. Utterly pathetic white-anting by some people who should hang their heads.

    This is Link and Di Patston all over again. The damage of this will takes years to recover, if ever.

    When I visit my parents I sometimes share the ferry with Phil Kearns.

    Next time I see him I'm gonna kick him flush in the nuts.

    If he becomes CEO, I'm pushing him in the water.

    Fuck that bobble-headed poster-child for pointless existence.
