What a shame RFC doesn't sink low enough to deliberately loose matches.
Get in bed with Gupta over there and we could pay of our debt in one foul swoop.  :outtahere

Nor are your ways my ways,” says the Lord.
 
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are my ways higher than your ways,
And my thoughts than your thoughts."

LOL al.

The Comm Games' mascot was a tiger.


An exhibition game would be played in the cooler months between December to February.

DLF is the sponsor of the IPL. You'd chase Indian companies who would be keen to expand into the Australian marketplace.

Funny as it is MT, I'm loving the thinking behind it all. Some clubs are wanting to make inroads into China & South Africa. Why not India?

If the pies can have pre-season in America, why can't we have a pre-season on the sub-continent - you better believe they have altitude training there (not sure how many AFL grounds are half-way up the Himalayas but I'm sure we can do hill sprints ;D, plus give your rookies and 1st/2nd year players some match experience.

They love Tigers over there & they're addicted to sport so it's a perfect fit. 10-15 years time it might pay dividends - stroke of, well... good common sense really.


Oh, and by the way Jack it's "werry, werry good"  ;)

Located at an altitude of 7,500 feet above sea-level, the Chail cricket ground in Himachal Pradesh is described to be the highest cricket ground in the world.

Lucky Travis Cloke isn't playing there or it'd be a bugger fetching the footy after it was kicked out on the full lol.

Looks like the ground has its own helipad for Full-forwards to land at just in time for the first bounce.

Perfect!

Looks like it'll build character too. The modern AFL player is just a smidge too soft for my liking.
