Re: Saracens are relegated!

I have a lot of respect for McCall, he has done a stunningly good job to produce the quality teams at Saracens over the past 8 or 9 years and he is a pretty intelligent guy but no one will ever convince me that, as he looked around the training ground at his squad, he didn’t question how the managem...

Re: Saracens are relegated!

Is it correct that there is a ‘parachute’ payment for the relegated team? In the circumstances that would be rather ironic wouldn’t it?

Re: Joe Batley signed on loan today

This says it all about our chronic tightfisted management. GO AND PURCHASE A BLINKING GREAT HULKING SOUTH SEA ISLANDER WHO MIGHT MAKE A DENT IN THE OPPOSITION. Not a second rater from Bristol who will report all our non-moves. That is really a quite appalling response to a young player temporarily ...

From L'Equipe-
Quote:Three-quarters English center Manu Tuilagi, who is looking for a club for next season, Monday visited the facilities of Racing 92.

On the L'Equipe website today, but no link to any further details.
Perhaps just part of on going negotiations........

Re: Mascots at Welford Road

Thank you Tigerbeat. Seems despite criticism of the club at this rather difficult time we haven’t yet sunk to the level of revenue chasing that some Football Clubs have managed. Quite surprised to see LCFC as one of the highest chargers for Mascots, slightly dents their reputation I would think. How...

Mascots at Welford Road

Read this very disappointing article about charging for children to be a Mascot at their club (wendyball).
