I know of one million-dollar player who gets about half his money from a commercial arrangement and no one over there (east coast) has kicked up about it. What we're doing isn't new. Commercial payments have been around rugby for some time.
The first guy who ran at him the other night was cut in half.
He flew here last week to look around and check our operation. We didn't make him an offer then and still haven't.
We've delivered on the challenge to grow the player base in Western Australia but it will take time to develop some of these youngsters into potential Wallabies.
And we haven't started our advertising campaign yet.
