    Where to for Super Rugby?

    And we didn't even bid for the 2023 WC which could reinvigorate the code - likely to go to SA. And a possibility that 2027 gets awarded at the same time.

    If you want the media $$s you get say 3 Japanese corporate teams, pinch a few East coast NRC teams then a few of the above

    Average crowd at first round was pretty poor. Average of 7k with all but Ulster under 10k https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017–18_Pro14

    Worse than ANZ Stadium for rectangular games, but of course it is WA

    Do we know what agreement the ARU has with SANZAAR and what penalties they ARU may be up for if they fail to cut a team??

    The injunctuon only seems to name the ARU, why not SANZAAR particularly if it's a Sydney based entity

    I assume there is also a question as to whether they would have an action against SANZAAR who ultimately bcontrolbthe comp, via a vis the ARU

    A 1p kickoff in Jo'burg/Cape Town would be 9pm in Syd/Bne/Cbr/Mel. Yet almost all the Aussie games played. With a 7/8pm kickoff - so 3/4am... Stupid stupid stupid 8pm Jo'burg kickoff sort of works for NZ - 7am Auckland time - so it is at least wathable for most people -- In the same manner...

    No doubt that Vic connections to the old boys network stronger. But this has been some time coming. Long term issues with RU. - chasing the short-term Foxtel money rather than ensuring some games on FTA - not supporting juniors and subbies to the extent of other codes eg. AFL - not requiring...

    Despite a few derby crowds, the rest are pretty dire, even in a year where SydneyFC dominated. ALeague will always be second fiddle to Euro leagues, and in coming years even Asian leagues.

    7-0 to Waverley after 15. Have had bulk of possession, and missed penalty. W forwards dominant and K have lost a couple of line outs and seem to be kicking for field possession W 14-0 after 20 W 21-5 approaching HT W 26-5 at HT

    Question is whether Knox can replicate Barker's shutdown game plan with maybe some runs from the back. Certainly seems that Waverley needs to improve line outs, which won't be easy with frost in the line. But I'm still tipping a W win by 15
