Hearing a lot of problems with Rugby in Australia at the moment throughout the media.

From no future tv deal locked in place.
To talk of teams being cut.
To lots of debt.

If Rugby did go under, is there going to be a stack of players switching codes to the NRL?

Is there a rugby union ladies comp?

If rugby league could raid that league as well maybe they will be able to have enough players to field a 5th onwards

That’s if the league ever gets to that point as it was financially unviable to field a 3rd and 4th team :lol:


Australian sporting sponsorship
AFL excess of $50m
A league $30 million plus
ARU $27 million
NRLOL $25 million

Of course there is a women's union comp.

Well actually there are more first grade womens Rugby League teams than AFL.

There are 10 in the UK alone then adding the ones in Australia too.

How's that though, even women's Rugby League is more international than AFL. :cool:

Why not. Unfortunately this can never happen in women's AFL because women overseas have no care for AFL. :mrgreen: =D

The SuperW in Australia and the Premier 15s in the UK.

Well actually there arent. The numbers are the same - 14 a piece. There are actually more top tier womens rugby union teams than both the AFLW and NRLW - 15.
There are 10 in the UK alone then adding the ones in Australia too.
How many NRLW clubs do you think there are exactly? Last time I counted there were 4.
How's that though, even women's Rugby League is more international than AFL. :cool:
And yet witness the sound of absolutely no one in AFL circles giving a shit.

14 AFLW teams this year
4 NRLW teams (+10 Superleague womens teams)
5 SuperW teams. (+10 teams in the womens premier 15s)

They've been going south for years and right now they're in massive trouble. The timing couldn't be worse. Follows low revenue from World Cup year. Folau payout and fiasco. Crowds tanking. Ratings tanking. They've apparently only got $11M in the bank. Probably technically insolvent already. And no broadcast deal for next season.

Yep, no positives anywhere you look. Their only hope is to beg for cash from World Rugby. I suspect they'll give 'em enough to just survive in some form. The only good news is that this crisis will probably blow up the Sanzar comp. Australia now need to start a domestic comp with NZ. Ten teams. All games played at normal times. Home & away. That's their only way for the future.

Heard the Union CEO was on 800k a year. There is part of the problem.
Plus plenty of others would be on huge money.
Administration seems to be full of fat cats. Not just in union, league too.

As I predicted World Rugby are set to bail out RA to the tune of up to $200M over 4 years. That should be enough to see 'em through. Hopefully they'll go to a trans Tasman comp and dump the saffies. The next broadcast deal is still a problem though.

They must have very deep pockets World Rugby.
I bet the Melbourne Rebels are relieved to hear that. Was talk of them getting the axe.

Yeah an Australian NZ comp seems the only way.

AFL has been in too. Plenty of pay cuts and layoffs in all codes.
No sport in immune.
