So the Western Force have been booted from Super Rugby by the ARU.
After spending $150 Million of Western Australian tax payers money on upgrading the nib Stadium for the (has been) Western Force, the ARU intend on using this venue for its incumbent game against the Wallabies v Springbok on Sat 9 Sep 2017.
This is not acceptable! BOYCOTT PERTH - Wallabies v South Africa game Sat 9 Sep 2017.
We also encourage you to join the sea of blue at the front gates before the game to support our Wallabies.
For all the force fans here is a brilliant article by the Nedlands Rugby Club:
Well readers, unfortunately the bounce of the ball didn’t go RugbyWA’s way in the arbitration hearing with the AR.
But that’s not the end of the road for the Force, not by any measure. Rather, it’s the trigger for Plan B. Apart from an immediate Supreme Court appeal and/or injunction, your correspondent understands that RugbyWA will pursue two other legal avenues against the ARU to ensure the Force remains in Super Rugby.
The first is the smoking gun your columnist first revealed back on August 4. And that boils down to one very critical issue: Was anyone at the ARU aware of SANZAAR’s plans to axe an Australian Super Rugby team when the alliance agreement was signed with the Force in 2016? If so, surely the ARU couldn’t have signed that alliance agreement in good faith?
The other legal avenue being considered is even more explosive. Your correspondent understands that Andrew Forrest is in discussions with the WA Government to consider a circa $120 million claim against the ARU for the cost of refurbishing nib Stadium.
Things are hotting up. And you know what they say about people being in the kitchen when that happens.
As always, stay tuned…..
