Typical, some lefty twat makes out something is good, then it ends up costing a fortune

What do you mean my idea cost Samoa $1.5 million?

Samoa will be wishing they’d never enlisted the aid of John Campbell to push for an All Black test match in Apia.

Samoa Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sa’ilele Malielegao says the country’s rugby union lost $1.5 million hosting the All Blacks.

The All Blacks played their long-awaited test in Apia on July 8, winning 25-16.

The fixture was hailed as a huge success in terms of the match and the hosting logistics with Samoa coming to a standstill for the All Blacks’ trip. But the massive costs of the historic visit to the island nation by the world’s No 1 rugby team have been revealed.  

Tuilaepa, who doubles as chairman of the Samoan Rugby Union, has claimed the total cost of the test – assembling the largely offshore-based Samoan squad and hosting the All Blacks – was $3.4m, offset by generated revenue of $1.9m.

That left the union staring at a loss of $1.5m.

“$3.4 million was spent to host the All Blacks. The money was spent on preparations, the cost of everything and allowances. The bulk of the money went towards the players’ allowances,” Tuilaepa told a news conference in a report by the Samoan Observer.

John Campbell and the left were waxing lyrical about this fantastic idea of Campbells’. And as is typical, whenever some lefty twat says something is a good idea, it usually turns into a massive cost that other people have to pay for.

Samoa should give John Campbell a call and ask for his contribution to the costs.
