“I'm a pleb. I'm a nobody. My opinion on rugby counts for the square root of f-all in the grand scheme of things,” Quigley wrote.

“But I've got one thing. Passion. Passion for the game of rugby. And for the Wallabies. And you can't deny me that. Despite your best efforts.

“I love you, but I'll be blunt. The Wallabies are a disgrace. You got lucky in the Quarter Finals of the World Cup in 2015 thanks to Craig Joubert losing the plot in the last minute (against Scotland, funnily enough) for some reason and you've lived off it ever since.”

You can check out Quigley’s full statement here. It’s worth a read.

Australian rugby is in dire straits, with one Super Rugby franchise set for the chopping block and the game struggling at the grassroots level.

The ARU faces a legal battle with whichever side it chooses to axe, but even if it didn’t, the organisation would be in a shambles.

Crowd numbers at Super Rugby games are dwindling and support for the national team is shrinking at an alarming rate.

At schools once considered rugby union strongholds, AFL and football are taking over.

It’s a wonder that Quigley and others like him haven’t jumped ship already. Only the real passionate rugby people remain. And their faith isn't being repaid.

How much longer will the diehards stick around?
