National Rugby comp gets green light – Canberra gets team

By johnboy - 1 June 2006 0

RugbyHeaven have a story on plans for a national rugby competition getting the green light.

NSW will field three sides, Queensland two, and there will be one each from Canberra, Perth and Victoria. Each squad will have 28 players.

The powerful Sydney clubs however are vowing dark vengeance about all who would push them down the pecking order.

“David Mortimer, president of the Sydney University club, said the funds would have been better spent on grassroots rugby. “The program as proposed will surely result in a significant loss and that’s money that would be better spent on the grassroots,” Mortimer said. “The fix was in. It was exactly as foreshadowed, and if they think they won’t be held accountable for their decision they’ve got another thing coming.

These things have been promised before though, so don’t hold your breathe.
