    Three years for a 32 year old is a bit long, isn't it?

    Possibly a bit long yes, but the Rebels know full well that they're going to be cack for at least the first seasons. He'll add a bit of experiance and help the younger lads around him.

    Must admit I know full believe that Cipriani will benefit from his time with the Rebels. He will be playing with one of the greatest centres in the world.

    Apparently he has a clause in his contract the enables him to take another role in the team other then as a player if he or his club feels he is not performing at the right level.

    The melbourne rebels are really loading up. I think they might be quite competitive from the beginning unlike the Western Force was . However Mortlock , despite being a great player is past his prime and do not think he will be part of the Australian team next year in the world cup. I wish him well and hope, he does prove me wrong and enjoys few more good campaigns with the Rebels in that stunning new stadium in Melbourne.
