Quietly pumped about 2016 at the MTB.
Any inside information on Mike Doyle's project to "re-invogorate the West"?
Hopefully the previously reported thought bubbles have died the death that they deserved (Merge the Mighty Parramatta 2 Blues with the Emus and move them somewhere, and Move the Woodies away from TG Millner being a couple of the more silly ones)
Greetings all from Cardiff.
got a bit of down time this afternoon, thought I'd check in and see what's happening here.
The snouts are telling me that Emu's are paying their newly appointed coach $50K to coach out there. Reports also that they re-signed the kiwi flyhalf who played the last few rounds this year to a $500 a week, win/lose or draw contract.
Word is the money is coming from NSWRU. The Union will deny it til they're hoarse of course but you know what say, no one can talk to a horse of course, unless that horse is the famous Mr Ed!
Rumours also that M Doyle will be once again appointed State Development Manager for NSWRU but the interesting bit is that they want to appoint a GM of Western Sydney. And the preference is that person hail from the west and has an intimate knowledge of the region and it's struggles.
It'll be interesting.
Anyway lads, that's me for a few days. I'm off to watch some atrocities in public bars occur that only Cardiff is known for.
Didn't they say that for this year?
Classic bit of schoolyard self promotion from parra..

Love this sort of news, when it jumps out of facebook.
Sorry if I've missed it somewhere else but does anyone know where's Matt Lucas going? (mentioned in that article) I was a fan of his from the few opportunities he got with the Tahs and he always seemed a good leader in that Manly side.
