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

One 'small' point in all these re-signings today, I don't know if any of the players were above the threshold for a 25% cut or not, in which, they would have to (re-) sign a new contract. However, on the Twitter feed, each photo of the re-signing player has the word 'Extended' on it. How long the e...

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

There is more than a passing resemblance to Warburton in the way Reffell plays, that is huge for us long term. how long term will long term be given his international future? Think Wales are going to have to alter their stance due to finances, it doesn't affect him till he actually has caps I belie...

Have to say I've read about footballers being forced to train with the kids when things have gone sour and I don't recall one of them ever commencing legal action. Maybe the clubs in a stronger position then we though.
they can't because they are still being allowed to train and use facilities

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

they have a playing contract, Tigers are not letting them train or play so no they can't Refusing to allow them to train or play puts at jeopardy future earning capacity and future international caps and ancillary earnings related to playing, which are all clearly anticipated when the contracts wer...

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

Nothing? I am sure Tigers could legally put them to work off the pitch. they have a playing contract, Tigers are not letting them train or play so no they can't So they are not contractually required to do anything at all apart from training and play? So they visit folks in hospital, visit schools ...

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

But that means means the player cant play for another club then until his contract is up? Yes. But if you're in your 30's, disillusioned with the game after being treated so "unfairly" by Tigers, or perhaps were even contemplating retirement in a year or two anyway, maybe you just take the money fo...

Re: Manu Tuilagi

If Manu does accept the club offer I hope and trust that it as exactly per the same conditions that have been accepted by players and all club employees. If not its potentially a recipe for resentment and bad feeling going forward. I'm sure its the same offer that was on the table until the origina...

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

The question may now be for Steve Borthwick - which of the 'Sidelined Six' would you wish to keep if it became possible? Taufua, Manu, Veianu for sure although it seems TV is off to SF. Bateman would be a bonus. Reid and Eastmond can go imho. Reid and Eastmond wouldn't be a great miss, Bateman is a...

This might focus Manu's mind a little.

Re: Manu Tuilagi

do we know when the players received the reduced contracts on offer? how much time they had to think and make a decision, if they were given it less than a week before the club imposed deadline then for me that would be poor form by the club to do that players need time to think talk to their famil...

Re: Manu Tuilagi

He’s had the same amount of time as all of the other players who have accepted wage cuts. Would urge the club to let him go and spend the money on someone who is here all season and wants to play for the shirt. special players get special treatment, he is a special player who will have a different ...
