My friend, Joeys didn't pull out. The ARU didn't ask Joeys. They invited Barker after originally planning to invite Joeys, but changed their mind.You probably shouldn’t speculate on something you know nothing about .. and to insinuate joeys is somehow “scared to play” is hilarious. The college runs a tight ship, many teachers also have boarding duties… also to pull kids out of class at this time of year with many taking final exams is definitely something the college is historically against ..
Also Your ( however inaccurate) jab against GPS schools is just laughable, I can see that chip on your shoulder from here…
And yes. The GPS going back to home and away is bad for rugby. And the GPS' unwillingness to negotiate and work with the CAS and ISA in the name of 'tradition' is detrimental for the sport. A real shame.
