Oh nonsense. NZR are a bull in a china shop. Time for them to become a touch more circumspect and engage with Rugby Australia as a legitimate stakeholder. This unilateral action, and in the case of Kanaloa Hawaii poorly executed, is doing nothing to strengthen ties.
NZR never and I mean never even to my knowledge spoke to Kanaloa Hawaii, I heard a spokesman from KH say they had asked for and received an EOI, but apart from that the only thing I heard from them was them being talked about on TV regarding MLR, I have not heard any PI team actually being mentioned by NZR, apart from last month or so about MP (Moana Pasifika). Can you enlighten me a bit, I genuinely want to know, as I haven't seen anything. And I genuinely asking you to let me know where you got the info on NZR and KH from so I can read about it.
