Lions tour just a side show to State Of Origin from the Telegraph.
Rugby Union gets good crowds through their Corporate connections.
The reality is their Junior development at local Schools and Clubs is withering on the Vine.
They are in big trouble now and they will be in a lot more trouble in the next few years as their system collapses.
They are a spent force in Australia, I used to keep an eye on their code as many Aussies did as both codes had plenty of dual followers to a certain extent, that appears to be nearly non existent now where very few league fans care two hoots about Union in any form.
