NEW COMPETITION: In Sydney, Bret Harris reported Pulver "wants to create a western Sydney team to play in a national club competition to provide rugby union with a foothold in the greatest battleground in Australian sport." Pulver "believes a western Sydney team competing in a national competition would help to develop more players and attract more supporters to the game." The ARU "is seeking television and sponsorship partners to fund the national club competition, which would run in September and October." It "is also looking at a Super Rugby development competition," which could be incorporated into the Int'l Rugby Board-funded Pacific Nations Cup (THE AUSTRALIAN, 10/24).
