Kearns joined the likes of George Gregan and Nick FarrJones in signing a letter on Monday calling for a leadership overhaul in RA head office. A Fox Sports commentator, Kearns was beaten to the chief executive position by current RA boss Raelene Castle in 2017. Kearns promises cash will follow RA purge Kearns conceded his ties to rugbys long-term broadcaster and 2017 battle with Castle left him open to critics, but the push was for the good of the game. He avoided the question when asked if he was gunning for her job, but said the consortium of captains were frustrated and shared the sentiment the game needs to change and change quickly before its gone. Weve seen our ratings fall, our crowds fall, we dont have a broadcast sponsor for next year, weve seen a $9.4 million loss and the Wallabies are seventh in the world now, he told Fox Sports on Tuesday. Theres a lot of stuff there that can show the demise of our game and theres no self-interest at all. (Ive heard) comments from sponsors, comments from broadcasters, comments from people in the game, comments from the players. Thats pretty much every stakeholder there saying the game needs to change. Kearns is asking for access to complete 2019 financial records and a special general meeting with RA, arguing that lack of transparency is stifling any rescue efforts.
