    Can anybody tell me what is available in the reds membership store, especially for kids? You have to become a member before you can even see what’s available. Cheers

    Broadcast options for Australian Rugby

    So. SMH is reposting that Optus have the rights for 30mil per annum.

    Waratahs 2020

    Tepai Moeroa is saying all the right things about coming back to rugby. Really great to hear a young man speaking so passionately about Aussie rugby. Hopefully he picks up the running lines and defensive patterns fairly quickly- he’ll add some real starch to the Waratahs’ midfield.

    Can definitely see why Thorn thinks Cooper is bad for club culture

    Reds 2018

    I’m not as down on Thorn as others here. I think that there has been an improvement in the team, but that he really needs better assistants to get to the next level. The other thing none of us have mentioned is that the Brisbane City A-League bid has made it to the next round.if they get it...

    I’m not saying it can’t have an impact, I’m saying that it will not solve the issues. The only impact this can have is negative.

    Reds 2018

    Frankly, I think this is absurd. No amount of ‘debate’ on the internet will ‘fix the issue’. It’s completely perverse to think that strangers talking on the internet about mental illness in response to tragedy will have any meaningful outcome.

    That’s a disgusting response. People like you are partly responsible for our consistent failure to adequately deal with mental health issues in this country. Take a good hard look at yourself, and think about maybe taking some time away from this forum.

    Gotta say, I like that Force jersey much better than the blue.

    Speaking of rugby in Western Sydney, when is the Granville Park redevelopment supposed to start?

    It’s incredible stuff- I’m really struggling coming to terms with a professional extracting as much compensation as possible for their labour. Really searing insight from Spiro.

    I reckon you're pretty well right, thoughI reckon we might see Scott-Young instead of Douglas. I just don't see Douglas having the speed around the park.

    It’s almost as if circumstances have changed dramatically since those earlier decisions.

    Reds 2018

    Isn't it both? As in, he has a contract with the QRU that covers his Reds pay, and one from the ARU that covers his top-up. I'm not sure if they're all rolled up into a single contract at some point, but he was signed with the ARU and not a Super team for a while before this most recent contract.

    Reds 2018

    Yeah, exactly. Unless there's a specific mention of playing club rugby when available in ARU/QRU contracts (and there might be).

    Australian Rugby Development Centre

    Is there any cross-over between the boards of UTS and the ARU?

    What is the biggest mistake made with Australian Rugby?

    Schif was great. He wasn't paid stupid money, and was great for the Reds at the time (after the devastation of the Force). Not sure why anybody would put him in a list of bad converts.

    IMO, CFS was ruined partly by being forced onto the wing in his youth. Should always have been a 13.
