Re: Exeter Chiefs

I’ll never forget when shortly after moving down Devon for work my new boss’s secretary asked ‘Alright m’lover?’ as a greeting. So my vote would be firmly for the club to be renamed ‘M’Exeter Luvverrrz’

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

We're already over the quota. There were five Academy lads, five on Monday and four yesterday plus the two so far today, which is 16.
Unless the academy lads don’t count, in which case there are four more still to go. Or the 15 is just a smokescreen...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

Didn’t get to watch the live stream so a quick question: were the rumours of an extension to the Tuesday deadline just that, rumours, so without foundation?

I'm guessing 'early next week' actually means 'before the end of play on Wednesday'.
His working week will usually include a Saturday or a Sunday, so anytime before Wednesday COP will seem ‘early’...

Re: More changes to the board

With these two departures following that of SC, it’s clear who is pulling the strings! If I were the new CEO I’d want to be appointing my new FD and not letting anyone else do it. But I’m guessing that’s not what you meant Fleabane? With SC’s departure we are going to see whether he was as much to ...

Re: season has ended below the prem

It can't, it mustn't, mean that. There would be an outcry from the rest of the Premiership Clubs and from 99% of fans.

Re: England v Wales

The concussion against us was in December 2016, so just over 3 years ago, not the 4 years the Welsh (journalists?) have said. North claimed at the time it was a neck injury not a head injury.
