Joker - what do you think would be better for the long term future of the game.
It all has to come from the clubs. When you have strong grass root rugby you win. If the smaller clubs can attract and keep players the the game will thrive. AFL has made major inroads into schools and this only weakens our codes as "helicopter" mums want little Johnny and Hanna playing AFL because it is "safe". Strong local clubs with a pathway to the senior grades. Drummoyne are doing this well I am told
