Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

Some of the players are being selfish to sue, the ones on peanuts maybe not but I think certain players need to look at the bigger picture. Everyone has their own circumstances............there may be a high earner on £200000 a year and has a Mortgag with say a large payment and other expenses........

Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

Supermarkets need to buy the goods in and then need to pay the staff. They have taken on more staff to try and make it easier for the rest of us. I doubt their profits are excessive but without them we would struggle to survive. They are not increasing prices as some of the small stores are.

Re: Could this be the end for some clubs?

If any rugby is to be played, it should be the domestic leagues.....scrap the European games which reduce the risk of spreading......this would free up 3 weekends to make up for lost domestic games.....that is if it is at all possible.

Re: May, Kalamafoni and McPhillps extended injuries

Money, in a word. I don't think rugby matches played in empty stadia would generate enough money to justify the risk. Risk being the risk of 46 players plus officials coming into close bodily contact. The risk would be far less without 18000 others in the Stadium but agree that the monetary loss wo...
