Billionaire plans to hold rival Super Rugby event

In a statement, RugbyWA said: "This now means the ARU have the ability to remove the Western Force from the Super Rugby competition".

Hong Kong Rugby Union chief rugby operations officer Dai Rees said his organisation would be "crazy not to look at" the proposal.

Force great Matt Hodgson broke down in tears when he fronted the media on Tuesday.

The Western Force, along with the Southern Kings and the Cheetahs were the three teams culled from Super Rugby, in an effort to reduce the number of teams competing in the annual showpiece from eighteen to fifteen.

The ARU contended that, with the competition contracting, a new broadcast agreement would be in place for 2018.

"It is obviously a potentially very exciting time for us all".

"I think fans will be angry".

"We will be including in this an global game - and I hope to announce details of that in the next several days - with the Western Force versus a team that will surprise us all. It's a pity that the ARU didn't fight for us", he said, and threw his support behind Forrest's vision.

Wallabies coach Michael Cheika says the only thing his team can do this week is deliver a performance that Perth fans can be proud of, after news that the Force is set for the axe.

Forrest wanted to make the competition so strong, that other Super Rugby franchises would eventually want to join.

He gave a penalty for a non-existent handball against Senegal defender Kalidou Koulibaly in the game in Polokwane, South Africa . Cape Verde, who beat South Africa 2-1 last Friday, are aiming to become the smallest nation to make the World Cup finals.

"The ARU will regret it", the nine-Test Wallaby told Fox Sports.

Referees will be able to show players the new card if they display signs of concussion, forcing them to leave the field to pass a head injury assessment before returning. Out of disappointment can come.opportunity.

Senator Reynolds was critical of the decision-making process used by the ARU, and also the governing body's lack of transparency, and plans to launch the motion on Wednesday.

"The reasoning behind this decision must be explained and made public".

Forrest has not revealed many details yet, but said the competition would feature six teams, with the Force one of them.

Senator Reynolds wants the matter referred to the Community Affairs References Committee for inquiry, with a report returned by November 13.

Australian Rugby had pushed hard to retain five teams for several years, but it had simply become too great of a burden on its resources.

The billionaire also criticised the ARU for rejecting his $50 million offer to fund rugby union on the condition the Force was saved.

The State will be $1.5 million a year worse off until at least 2020, when the Force's major contracts were due to be renewed, on top of the costs associated with revamping nib Stadium.

Teams from Fiji, Samoa, New Zealand, and Tonga could be part of the competition.
