    No hardcopy Rugby News
    No ABCTV (possibly)
    No money

    We will still survive -- somehow!

    Cheika coaching Randwick will help though.

    Works for me!
    Let's do away with the Super15 and NRC and Cheika can coach the Wicks and the Wallabies ;)

    SS round 1 is Sat March 21st - anyone seen the draw and know who plays who yet? Seems to be a lot of change and expect a dew clubs to surprise in 2015.

    By eliminating funding to clubs they are just widening the gap between club rugby and S15. Without funding clubs will still survive but won't be able to afford the training, coaching and management facilities needed to prepare players for the next level. The ARU board members are shooting themselves and Australian Rugby in the head. Who elects this unrepresentative swill? How do we get a vote?

    It is interesting hey, they ask clubs to contribute to the NRC, and then the following year pull the plugs on clubs.

    Maybe they should have said beginning of last year, instead of providing some club funding in 2015 we are going to direct it to the NRC so you will not need to foot as bigga expense with regards to NRC.

    Instead a wammy.

    I had rugby mates who new of the NRC, but had no idea it had already started - I.e. maybe the ARU could have made an effort with regards to public awareness.

    Any news on whether the ABC is going to televise next year?
    Without this it then makes it even more difficult to get sponsors involved.
    Even less money for clubs.

    It hasnt been finalized and i can see there being some major dramas.
    With cricket still in full swing the rugby grounds with cricket pitches will be unavailable so the fields without cricket pitches will be used.
    These clubs wont be too happy to have a stack of early home games when patrons will be at cricket the beach or too hot for rugby and also miss out on bigger crowds at the back end of the season when final positions are on the line.
    Home crowds are even more important with no ARU money so i think some clubs will be lodging complaints when the draw is released.

    Gordon’s Annual Report is out and again they have posted a profit – this year of $400k on a revenue of circa $900k.
    There is no doubt, the club is heading in the right direction after serious issues a few years back. A $900k rev puts them in the same company as Sydney Uni, West Harbour and Manly. ( not sure about how much the other clubs have made this year).
    Great to see.

    What ever it is it is reducing the red which is good for the club.

    I have a feeling its made up of pledges from ex-players and the Gordon RUFC committee, funds from Mingara and Friends of Gordon. I could be completely wrong but in this era of no money in rugby, I wouldn’t be complaining. Would be great to see a very strong Gordon again.

    Sydney Grade cricket will be at the qualifying finals stage on 21/3, so only 3 1st grade games on that weekend. Semis the next weekend (2 games) and final 4-6 April. I think only Randwick, Norths, Gordon, Manly and Uni share grounds with cricket these days so may not be too much of an issue.
    Last scheduled grade cricket round on each ground:
    Coogee 14/3
    North Sydney 28/2
    Chatswood 14/3
    Manly 14/3
    Uni 14/3

    According to Note 9 it is de-recognising the $300,000 bequeathed to the club by Pat Serisier. In 2013, from memory, it was a debt that was accrued in prior years but was agreed was no longer payable.
    Basically conservative accounting in prior years which has now been written back.

    Gday Guys - I took the liberty of dropping Gus Hearl GRFC president) a note about the 'other income'. He has kindly sent through this prompt response. (which even to this financial luddite makes sense).
    Cheers
    FYI the AGM is coming up.
