Torygraph article in full: More clubs are exploiting a Premiership Rugby loophole which allows them to potentially circumnavigate the salary-cap threshold, The Daily Telegraph understands.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 2

So what are we looking at so far for 2020/21 season. Henry to replace McPhillips Alemanno to replace Spencer Lam or Nadalo to replace May Hughes to replace Thompstone Unless Lam or Nadalo are significantly cheaper than retaining May (and assuming the potential signings are indeed linked) I don't re...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

The obvious example I can think of is the NFL where they have a salary cap. I guess being franchises, powerful union and lots of money so all players earn a lot it's not that comparable to the Prem.

Re: Johnny May

Daily Mail had Williams on £230000 for Sarries. Can't imagine May would be able to attract much more than that, if anything Williams is the more complete player. May is the better winger and will finish more try scoring opportunities. He's a bit of a luxury player but one you'd want when competing ...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

This would seem to suggest that it was more than just the co investments that caused them to be over the cap.

Re: Mark Bakewell - gone? (Rumour)

Haven't the Villa won a couple of league matches this year? They have and no one is talking about how Villa shouldn’t be down near the bottom of the league. They’re expected to be there. A big thing is made from Tigers being near the bottom. This is why you cannot compare Aston Villa to Tigers. Bas...

Re: Mark Bakewell - gone? (Rumour)

Why is everyone getting in a state when we don’t know what has happened yet. People having been calling for changes, if rumours are to be believed something has happened. Borthwick is on his way, so there is no way that another coach is going to come in for a maximum of 3 months keeping his seat wa...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 2

Poor old Lendrid, always getting the blame. I don't think any of the other scrum halves would improve anything until the coaching improves. That should be the sole focus and where money should be directed.

Re: Wasps Financials

Wasps turnover seems to be about 15m more than Exeter so you do wonder how they seem to get it so badly wrong.
