I know this isn't related to Union, but this is awesome. Seeing this from anyone is amazing. Made me smile. Needed an up today!

Another financial hit for NZ Rugby. The upcoming Sky rights issue means that NZR either stump up ~$7.5 million or see their stake diluted to ~1.5%

This has been quite an interesting situation to watch unfold. I don't profess to any knowledge on how these contracts are formed or what clauses might be in them, but it seems a meatheaded position for them to take. Presumably, they have offers elsewhere to make a decision like this, but I am curious on what terms they departed... Did they get a portion of payout or what recourse would RA have against them for early termination? Perhaps it was just decided everyone walk away immediately without penalty, probably the best case scenario and RA and Reds don't have to pay their entire salaries.

 

Given they are said to have played a signficant part of RA's Wallabies plans, it does seem a shame to have ended like this.

A fair bit of the Rodda stuff seems to have come from a relationship breakdown with Brad Thorn. Thorn seems to have gone to the Mark Hammett school of player management and is getting similar mediocre results on the field.
