Re: Trans Tasman Comp will be best comp

I think both countries need to go their own way for a season or two just to let things calm down. I'm happy with the SRAU...bring the Drua in as well. SRNZ can do whatever they do and we'll rehash in a few years. While we're at it...bring back rugby tours. I want to see international teams touring t...

Re: Trans Tasman Comp will be best comp

So we’re back to where we were last year - both unions are attempting to make decisions that are best for their country. Makes sense. I have strong doubts about the quality of pasific or Fiji team- but to be fair the Force were good value as third best Aus team. The Drua would be good value if they...
