    The Farce are taking the result, to the Supreme Court so it ain't over yet.The fat lady hasn't sung and Rothfield hasn't burped.

    As mentioned back in the early days of this thread, expansion by itself in non heartland areas is no measure of success, and can ultimately create bigger problems...

    Need to proceed carefully...

    I wonder if South Sydney can be used by the Force lawyers as a legal precedent

    South Sydney wasn't owned by the NRL,the Farce apparently owned by the ARU.I guess that makes a hell of a difference.
    I hope they don't go through with legal efforts,leave it.Leave it open for rugby league, you know it makes sense.

    The Melbourne club will be gone in 3 seasons, they've cut their own throat with this silly decision, and I thought people running Rugby League were bad. The game might've had a hope cutting the Vic team but not now, they'll end up dragging the whole lot down with them.

    Ouch Red.... These were the days hey?

    How the mighty Force and Union in WA has fallen...

    What can we learn from Super Rugby?

    Be careful when expanding to WA...

    Im not against it by any means, but as I have said repeatedly, a team by itself is no guarantee for success for any code...

    yeh Im amazed, I thought League had an innate ability to shoot itself in the foot but Union has blown off both legs below the knees here! If only we had an NRL that could capitalise on their demise.

    There are 23 Jnr Union clubs and 19 mens snr clubs. I'd be on the phone offering them a place in the NRLWA competition! Then Id be on the phone to the WA Govt about taking over the elase on RUgby WA's CofE!
