ARU needs re­view: in­quiry

Otago Daily Times - - SPORT & RACING -

Rugby: A se­nate in­quiry into the ax­ing of the West­ern Force has called for the Aus­tralian Se­cu­ri­ties and In­vest­ments Com­mis­sion to re­view Rugby Aus­tralia’s busi­ness deal­ings with the Mel­bourne Rebels.

The in­quiry has also rec­om­mended ASIC re­views the fi­nan­cial cir­cum­stances re­ported in RA’s an­nual re­ports against the ev­i­dence pre­sented to the com­mit­tee.

The in­quiry con­cluded that the de­ci­sion to axe the Force was a ‘‘fore­gone con­clu­sion’’ that was prob­a­bly made on April 9, 2017 — four months be­fore the fran­chise was of­fi­cially culled. — AAP
