The letter was signed with 9 votes worth. NSW (3 votes), VIC (2 votes), Force (1 vote) appear to be pro McLennan = 6 votes. RUPA is an unknown, saw some reports they are pro McLennan if that's the case the vote split would be 9-7. They will not have total confidence that at least one of those votes can't be flipped before the EGM, if it was McLennan would remain as chair. There are plenty of deals that could be reached in the interim, as I said Twiggy who provides private funding to Rugby WA is pro McLennan.How do you know they don't have total confidence they can win the vote?
The spanner in the works is that on 1 January, NSW lose a vote which makes it much harder for McLennan to turn it around. However, I don't think anybody could argue it is in the games best interest to let this hang over everybody's head till then. It needs to be resolved ASAP, especially at a time we are trying to hire critical figures for the future of the sport.
