Re: Well done George Ford and Ellis Genge

Do you think they had heard the rumours about doing away with relegation?

Jonny May

Latest rumours suggest that Sarries will approach JM as soon as they can legally do so in the new year. Sources: The Rugby Paper, and Gloucestershire LIve.

Re: Trouble at mill - May to go?

"I think your massively over reading this, i'm pretty sure it means there's too much cap tied up in the wrong areas due to some shortsightedness particularly during the MOC period" Thanks for that. Assuming, God forbid!, that the cap has not been exceeded, I'd still like to understand what "rebuildi...

Trouble at mill - May to go?

"The club needs to rebuild, and pay cuts are on the way." Could someone please explain what "rebuilding" means in this context? And why, on-field performance aside, has it suddenly become necessary? Attendances have been dropping off, unsurprisingly; is this connected to a fall in season-ticket sale...

Re: Murphy coaches and relegation

Never believed GM was up to the job. The management does not seem motivated to take the necessary action, to bring in someone of class. My deepest concern is, that when some of our top player's contracts are up for renewal, they'll walk!

Saints derby

Half-time, and I'm dreading the second half! They are running through us as if we are not there. A squad of good players, poorly coached.

Re: European Challenge Cup - Cardiff vs Tigers

Looks as if, with the exception of Gengey, GM is, quite rightly, taking the league more seriously than the Challenge Cup. We'll never need our top players more than for this coming season.

Re: Good Players Made To Look (Less Than) Ordinary

Comments about individual players are all well and good; is there anyone out there who still believes that GM is right for the job?

Re: Elitism in Rugby

Hardly missing the point! The fact that the pathways are better mapped out is firmly embedded in history. Public schools are where the game originated, and it's still a minority sport in most of Britain. Who do you expect to do the "re-mapping"? There are comments on here about corruption, which is ...

Re: Elitism in Rugby

The word "elitism" is a complete red-herring! Fleabane is the only one who has made a pertinent comment. If it were not for the fact that grammar/public schools play rugby, the game wouldn't exist! Coaches/clubs/etc would happily take any good players, whatever their backgrounds. Successive socialis...

Re: Guinness threat to London Irish

"...............choose to withdraw sponsorship. That is their right." Of course it is their right, but this is symptomatic of modern society; all that is needed nowadays to ruin someone's reputation is a media indictment. Being tested in a court of law no longer means anything. You have said it your...

Re: Rugby Paper article

"Given that we know the players leaving, we do not know the final signings so this could indicate that it has been put right."

Sincerely hope you're right Tigerbeat.
