Couple of points there half, I would absolutely bloody expect NZR is more concerned with NZ rugby than Australian rugby,and vise versa, the clue is in the name NZR and Rugby Australia.
And I genuinely think if media partners are want a NDC more than Super, the Rugby Australia is crazy even discussing super with NZR, obviously there would be more money going alone, and Rugby Australia's first and foremost job is to look after Australian rugby. If they not taking the options the bill payers want, you really need a new administration quite quickly, so you can get deal that media want, and hopefully get a better deal from them.
Lol, Stan/Nine have already endorsed RA in investigating options for going it alone if NZR aren't interested in an equitable deal.
Funnily SkyTVs Head of Commercial operations has encouraged NZR to investigste options to improve the competition and work with RA. Maybe NZR needs a new administration then, based on your comments above.
