Re: Steve Borthwick

I think the mood has lifted and there is even a bit of optimism in some quarters regarding the coaching set up. I remember when Mark Bakewell was appointed as the forwards coach a certain Steve Borthwick was quoted as saying "He is the best forwards coach i have ever worked with". Given that, its p...

Re: Review recommends change in attitude to restore trust in Premiership clubs

I guess a question might be if there are only good owners in rugby why do need this but presumably that is not the case - so why would they agree to it. Or perhaps more sympathetically.... the owners have felt compelled to act in a certain way. And taking stock, everyone can realise we've ended up i...

Re: Adam Thompstone

One of my favourite players of recent years.

Reliable never seems the greatest of compliments but it's golden.

Re: Peter Tom YouTube

Reference the sale of the club. I understood him to say that if any potential purchasers needed to show a long term commitment to the future and look to still be around in 25 to 30 years time. None of the prospective buyers, if there were any, showed that commitment, so The Board decided the club w...

Re: Peter Tom YouTube

Listened to it in my lunch hour. Some green shoots maybe. He acknowledges the board were poor at communicating to the fans about the clubs commerical development not overshadowing the development of the playing squad.

Who cares who said what when and why, I'll start listening when Leicester are on the up and no longer in 11th place!

Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

I don't blame Murphy and Youngs for playing a straight bat in some ways but I saw them as glossing over the realities - almost being untruthful. Most of that Daily Mail article seems to founded in reality. Genge continues to surprise - and in a good way. What realities did they gloss over and be un...

Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

Every players worth is only dependant on what any employer is prepared to pay them. If that means that said employers will no longer be able or willing to pay them more than -25 % of their current wages then they can sue for the difference till contract expiration and then take a 25 % pay cut or ??...
