The world of fifteen XV DE FRANCE: calendar 2021/2022
The situation is becoming increasingly tense between the Australian and New Zealand federations. The New Zealand federation NZR announced on Friday its withdrawal from the Rugby Championships. A decision that Australians didn’t learn before that caused it Dave Rainey’s black anger. Now, FFA president Andy Marinos wants written proof.
Initially scheduled for August 21, then postponed to 28 at the request of the men in black, the third match between the All Blacks and Vulabi in Australia is supposed to take place on September 4. Either in Perth, as planned, or in another part of the country. Andy Marinos requests written proof of association from NZR and wants $5 million refund if New Zealand cancels the match again.
« I want it to write. We have a letter, but we also need a letter to the government, Andy Marinos explained in the Sydney Morning Herald. It should happen very soon. I made it clear to New Zealand that we had a contract and they did. »
