Super Rugby Pacific 2023

Absolute dross of a schedule construction.
Only 6 Home games in 2023.
Single Home game in Perth over a two month period.
Family unfriendly game times.
How can a franchise re-build a fan base under these circumstances.
Now that Covid is over can we have GRR back please?
At least we still have Club Rugby.
PS I know the WA State Govt's activities at HBF in 2023 don't help.

To say "WA State Govt's activities at HBF in 2023 don't help" is an understatement; the construction delays and field preparation for the FIFA World Cup have also forced Perth Glory to play elsewhere also.

Need our own comp first, whatever the name, and controlled here. Any cross-tasman add-ons come second.

Reg, like your crystal ball. February is still so far away but it is a distraction from recent events at the national team level.

Re the Brumbies 2023 :

Jahrome Brown - I think will be the starting no 7;

Corey Toole - I hope you're right. I've been nervous about his defensive capabilities but he put on some good hits yesterday, especially on a certain unnamed No 15;

Hudson Creighton - maybe but Ollie Sapsford and CFS are also options at 12;

Jack Debreczini - I reckon will start at 15 next year. Declan Meredith also put in an impressive spell yesterday;

Tom Hooper - reckon he has to be on the bench, either as cover for the backrow or in a 6/2 split.

For the Tahs - no Will Harris?

Actually looking at a holiday to Brisbane early next year, and wondering if opening weekend when my Canes are playing Reds there is a good time.o_O
Wondering how Mrs will go along with that idea.

Well f*** me, well guess I will leave it until later then. Was actually originally thinking of going in winter, but bugger me I don't want to miss any club rugby here. (I know I'm a f***en tragic) Local club rugby and NPC really are my sports/rugby heaven!! :confused: :)

Didn't realise that Sef was still with Reds Reg,(haven't checked team lists yet) but good on him if he is. But I will try and guess who or what team Holland will put on field against Reds. Good to see guess work going on already.

For Force, I would think Campbell Parata might be pretty close, and would get bench spot al least?
