Are you - and others - seriously suggesting that Australian should consider pulling out of its involvement in the IRB World Sevens circuit? Sevens Rugby can become a high point for Australian rugby supporters, just as it is, or is becoming, in other places around the world. Sevens is a version of the game that can appeal to people who are not died-in-the-wool rugby supporters, and that is very important. Add to that the opportunities for medals in both the Olympics and the Commonwealth Games (and the next Commonwealth Games will be at the Gold Coast, coincidentally the new spiritual home of Australian Sevens) and we would be stupid to count the dollars and cents, but ignore the golden opportunities, which money just cannot buy. We threw the ARC away because of money. We would be condemned by history if we were so short-sighted as to throw Sevens away.
