    What about other "wandering Woodies" like Kieran Longbottom (Force), Matt Hodgson (Force), Sam Wykes (Force) and Parra's Tatafu Polota-Nau (Waratahs)?

    Asking the board for a couple of things (including for them to start paying me)

    Colours are Orange and Blue, Major is orange, secondary blue.

    Playing strip: asking and promoting to ask the fans what jersey design thy want, not sure if the club will agree to this or not. Asics are supplying the on field strip for every team in the NRC as part of the ARU's licence deal.

    Logo: will be trying to release this with board approval ASAP.

    Other details you'll have to look at the makeup of the original Rams and the associated clubs too.

    Theres a couple of hints on our twitter feed too.

    Are you part of the "machine" @RugbyFuture? Good to see.

    Awesome to have an experienced Gaggerlander "on the inside" as it were.

    Keep us posted on the developments.

    Hooped orange and blue jersey with a real collar would be great. No Asics Wallabies jersey released at the moment, but if they come up with a collar like the Australian 7s teams are wearing, they will be helping me save money by not buying one.

    Being called the Rams lends itself to having a mascot like the NFL St Louis Rams.

    It could be quite popular amongst the younger fans and help Rams Rugby promote themselves in the community. Who wouldn't take notice of a six foot tall mascot out and about in Greater Sydney? Great for photo ops. Could be as popular as Tah Man or Brumby Jack one day!

    Also, Greater Sydney Rams is a mouthful. Rams Rugby rolls off the tongue much easier.

    @RugbyFuture - Feel free to share the above with the Board. If they like any of the ideas, LMK.

    I'm ready to join the Rams Rugby back office anytime!

    Not necessarily, each franchise will get roughly 16 players. Those single teamed states will pick their best 16 and the other players will be required to play elsewhere.

    Perth side will look the same without maybe Cummins, McCalman & Godwin. Melbourne will probably be without Higginbotham and maybe Pyle.

    He knocked back another EPS contract with the Force to return to Eastwood via a stint for Waikato in the ITM cup. Saw him at the trial on the weekend and hes in great shape (would have to be the biggest half back in the Shute Shield) and has brought some great skills back to the Woods. He looks to be one of the key players for the club this year, particulalry when he and Pierre Hola fire together.
