    Broadcast options for Australian Rugby

    They launched their own streaming service $140 to buy the season. Big no from me to that. Even the NFL as a casual fan it annoys me that you have to get the league pass but they offer 16 games a week not that anyone has time to watch them all

    Looks like Stan has cut the pro 14

    Australian Rugby / RA

    But I want to see it happen because I want to see the new governance model implemented. If his money is a means to an end in that regard then take the money

    It’s better than staying in bed with the NZRU

    New board now but, we need to be independent and stand on our own two feet. Twiggy can help with that so we should definitely be looking into it

    Rebels 2022

    That’s why I was so annoyed when the news broke he was leaving as he finally started having a massive impact and had been one of my favourites all year. Was so happy to see him change his mind and stay in Melbourne

    The future of the Men's 7s program

    That’s why I wanted to start with an indigenous 7s side to complement the current 7s. As that would help us build an indigenous wallabies squad

    If you start at 8:45 they would be leaving at 10:30 not 12 so let’s stop with the mayo. Imagine how much all you kiwis would sook if we decide to start at 8pm in Perth as it’s best for the fans in the local market. It would be a ridiculous decision The reality of the situation is as an...

    You have to accommodate who you are playing as much as possible. It’s like when the black caps came out to play tests in Aus and we made them play day night in Perth 1-8pm in Perth is 6pm-1am over there. I am fine with Perth hosting day night tests but think you should host them against the Poms...

    The future of the Men's 7s program

    Yes and no, the kiwis have the ABs and Maori ABs. I think we should have the aim to increase indigenous participation in rugby Union and a good way of doing that could be by having two 7’s squads. When we are at major tournaments like the Olympics obviously you can only enter one side and it...

    Lol games in Perth start early to make sure it fits the time for the eastern seaboard. Both the Beijing and Tokyo Olympics had their schedules changed so it suited the TV market. It is the commercial reality of sports. Also the time difference is two hours there is no reason the game can’t start...

    The future of the Men's 7s program

    Activity trying to undermine Aus rugby like they do is not in their best interest either and yeah the potential loss in viewers in Aus with it being at such a poor time is worse than the potential loss in NZ

    Ballymore Redevelopment

    And there is no way we are moving to Dandenong it would isolate a lot of our fan base that would simply not travel and hour plus out of the city to watch them. I would cancel my membership
