The Used Car Lot that is Australian Rugby
|The state of Australian Rugby |
Has it got a deal for you?
Unfortunately the Australian Rugby motor vehicle was out of tune, spluttering and shuddering, belching clouds of smoke and screeching its wheels followed by that unmistakeable crunching noise that happens when reality collides with a brick wall. Welcome to Australian Rugby. At worst a car crash waiting to happen, at best a Kia pretending to be a V8 supercar.
The potential is there - somewhere
|The Rebels vs the Brumbies|
|The Queensland Reds - |
thems were the days
|The Brumbies - A Nissan 350Z 2003 model |
that's seen better days
|The Force - Mack truck subtlety|
The Force are the semi-trailer of Australian Rugby. Slow to get moving and not very pretty. You wouldn't want one in the garage but fun to hop aboard every now and then. Whether it's worth the cost is debatable given the dead weight that needs to be carried but in a head-on it's probably a pretty safe bet to survive with minimal damage. But like the semi-trailer the Force can be difficult to pass adn make a lot of noise, but once you do get in front of them they quickly disappear.
So take your pick. This could be a once-in-a-lifetime bargain opportunity. These prices may not last but neither may the vehicles.
