Can I also take an egregious double post to point out that some league fans are getting itchy. It feels like years since we’ve heard the constant agitated talk of rah rah and leather patches and rugby yawnion. They’ve come out of their lairs and I think it’s because we’ve actually beaten them a.
Game rated 691,000 when you include the regionals. That is easily the best TV ratings for a wallabies game since the 2011 World Cup based off my odd knowledge of ratings. It goes to show the key is exposing the game to casual viewers on either 7 or 9 - 10’s market share is toilet tier.
I can elaborate later, but it is absolutely in Australia’s National interest to be funding pacific island countries right now given China is trying to push them into its sphere of influence. We spend 1.4B alone in the pacific, a few mill for their footy team is literally the salt and pepper of.
Not sure if this is the thread for it, but has to be a huge congrats to Nic Berry on being appointed to the first test match of BIL v South Africa. Nic is a great ref despite some of the nonsense randomly thrown aroundd, he makes good decisions, polices the offside line well and is a deserved.

Would love to see some great Cadbury cross promotion.
Something like the old bundagberg rum ads which were fantastic would be great. I'm told they got pitched to do them again a couple of years ago but refused because they were worried about backlash. sad really. My brother is in Ad land and.
NewsCorp is also the king of misinformation on stuff like this, they continually put out info about their tabloid papers surging ahead at the same time as they were having double digit declines in circulation and nowhere near replacing them with online subs.
Also, would love to know how many.
He does have a point about Stan though. Nine only releases viewer numbers to its aligned papers, we have no way of confirming them. About 100,000 watched the final on Stan. If I was an executive and it was 89,000 I’d say our rounding policy is the nearest 100,000. Stan and Kayo are opaque
I think all 5 Australian teams are massively undervalued for what they should be this weekend.
Reds Highlanders - Reds bench looks very strong, highlanders without frizzel, no skudder - should be even money but Reds somehow at 4.05??? brain dead odds
Tahs Hurricanes - $13.50 - clearly the.
