    ok, it's just that you're probably in breach of GAGR Rule 6:

    Consider this a warning.

    Miller has been in the job since the end of March but you're blaming him for everything that is wrong with QLD Rugby.

    Have you actually read what his role and backround is in the BoQ?

    There is no way in hell he is qualified to act in any way or form anything coming even remotely close to being anything approaching the merest vicinity of "quasi administrator".

    That is quite clearly NOT his role and experience within the bank.

    There are many people and roles that make up a bank.

    Hi Gel. Certainly not insinuating that was the kind of role he has at BoQ. I know enough about the trade to know that certainly isn’t his gig there.
    What I mean is, it looks like he has stepped in to “shepherd” the organisation through a financial crisis - he has a banking background plus excellent experience of the QRU due to being a former CEO himself.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if there wasn’t a new CEO recruited until a clearer financial footing or direction is gained. Whatever shape that might take

    would prefer Gina Rinehardt. Could be a battle with other mining magnates who follow rugby.

    Gina has been a good supporter of swimming and Rugby would get a big profile for her..

    he is not to blame but in 4 months what has he announced to make changes, is he aware that changes are required?

    He needs a chance but has been there long enough to have given the fans faith in the systems that are in place

    Anthony Seibold is a great role model for any young coach starting out on how you develop experience and build your credentials before taking on a head coach role.

    Very nice bloke too.

    yep, he made a statement and extrapolated on it.

    You just made statements.

    He's the Chairman not the CEO. Given he doesn't have a CEO he's covering a fair bit of the gap it would seem

    He has started recruiting a new CEO given the one he had resigned.
    He has commences a series of information gathering for the Board (presentations from David Nucifora, Scott Johnson)
    He has set the intent on creating a high performance focus for the Footy department
    Discussions with RA around closer partnerships

    and that's just the stuff that's been written about.

    And to make it clear, I have not association with Miller. He wouldn't know me from a bar of soap.

    Let me TELL you
    Barker was shunted by Mr Miller

    When given the opportunity to be sacked or resign "voluntarily" which one would you take.
    Barker took the obviously least painful route !

    looking forward, the NRC will be vitally important for the Reds lads. the more we can start to get some connections between our youngsters at a higher level the better.

    If I'm talking honestly, I'd love the 2 NRC sides to pick the best 10's available and really make Hamish Stewart earn his stripes.
    I'm not trying to knock the bloke but there are a few 10's in 1st grade who would have a much more complete game. Would love him to continue his learning on the bench of an NRC side and for us to bring in a home grown 10 as there isn't much available that is better than what we have in the player market.

    Some goes with a backup fullback (provided we get Folau)

    Very interesting to see the make up of the sides.

    QC will lose a few players from last season including Slipper, Faagase, Mafi, Thor, Rodda, Nabuli and possibly Timu. CFS will be sidelined for a while through injury and possibly Parese too (?).

    Brisbane City could be anything if QC & Hunt are included. Kerevi’s injury could take some time but is a slim chance very late in the competition. Lots of players to replace including Vanzati, Ready, Douglas, Tui, Frisby, Alatimu, Kuridrani and that’s if QC, Hunt & Kerevi are named.

    And from what I hear it was the right decision.

    Agreed but who are the 2 flyhalves? Stewart and who?

    Same for fullback.

    If you take Gwm literally what club 10 would be rated above Quade?

    Let's say they pick Quade (and I hope they do), then that team needs to ensure that any other 10's in the squad not only learn a lot from him (and explicitly ask him to help develop them as part of his role) but also give them some decent game time so that they can put into practice what they are learning, make mistakes, and learn from that.

    Pretty sure the QRU has said that Cooper will not be considered for NRC
