RugbyWA board in legal action against ARU

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 10/04/2017

RugbyWA says it has issued legal proceedings against the Australian Rugby Union as the axe hovers over the embattled Western Force Super franchise.

After what it described as an "unsatisfactory meeting" with the ARU on Monday, the RugbyWA board issued a statement saying the peak body had "failed to address the responsibilities that exist in the Alliance Agreement between RugbyWA and the ARU".

"... We felt in order to protect our position it was necessary to issue legal proceedings to protect our rights under the Alliance Agreement," the statement explained.
