OPEN SUGGESTION / RECOMMENDATION TO, Mr Hamish McLenan, your personal and professional advisers, and the Board of Directors of Rugby Australia; you all are fully responsible before ASIC.
GET STUCK INTO FIXING THE GRASSROOTS. – It will cost you 25% of what you are spending today, juggling short mid-term needs and not a long-term whim, the 2027 RWC bid. A 10 years (2021-2031) strategic plan will do. Let’s start with GWS Rugby!!!
A ‘COMPETENT’ R&D Team (something we have not had one of these since 1995) can do this, I can personally entice KPMG to do it for RA!
ACTION PLAN: Get stuck into some HARD YAKKA, and also demand AUSTERITY from all rank and file = You first, and then the whole Board. LEAD by example and WE WILL ALL FOLLOW YOU! (I promise), “I want to beat the Kiwis again and as often as possible”. Just take a leaf off the 1984 Grand Slam and 1986 Bledisloe Cup winning teams manual book!
PS: You know very well, here your reputation and of Church of England (Shore School) is at stake here! ALL OR NOTHING Hamish!
