RugbyWA to Emerge Fighting Fit Tomorrow

Well readers, one more sleep and the future of rugby in Western Australia will become a whole lot clearer.

If your columnist is on the money, there will be a series of announcements made tomorrow which will leave RugbyWA fighting fit and in rude financial health.

The first will be that RugbyWA has emerged from voluntary administration, having cut a series of debt forgiveness deals with its major creditors including the mob formerly known as the ARU, its lawyers and the WA Government.

What’s more, the new and improved RugbyWA will have the financial backing of billionaire Andrew Forrest, as will the Perth Spirit team in the NRC after the ARU stonewalled Twiggy’s efforts to create his Indo Pacific Rugby Championship.

And word from the changing sheds is that tomorrow’s announcement will be made by John Edwards, indicating he may be taking over as RugbyWA chairman from Tony Howarth, who will step down.

That’s enough from your columnist for now. Bring on tomorrow….
