Such an upstart display against the spiritual guardians of the Australian game should see the Rebels axed immediately, and their poaches sent back to the ACT along with say Reece Hodge and maybe Naivalu too... :thumbup:

Even if this were plausible, the whole root of this issue is economic hardship: sides with no certain future would be even more pressed to find sponsors, audience etc.


The Force are still signing sponsors and fans are putting their money where their mouth is. The WA Government is backing their side. The Road Safety and the metal company sponsorship deals were signed recently. Neither are similar to the Firepower deal. The Brumbies also signed a big deal while under the pump and there is another sponsor to be announced next week which would have been under negotiation for a while now. University of Canberra are also back on board as there had been rifts under the previous management of the side. is

The Rebels can pull out the private ownership card all they want but the ARU under both ownership regimes (Mitchell and Cox) have still pumped serious money in to the side. They also haven't had a major sponsor for some time.

This disagreement is brought to you by Land Rover, Fuso and Massey Ferguson.

How many of those companies are individually pumping $1.2 million plus a year in to the side?

In response to the OP, can I state neither and instead propose the Waratahs?
