Re: Tigers' Players in the Media

In my line of work, during the lockdown, I worked 6 days a week and 12+ hours a day to help my boss and his business survive along with a small band of colleagues who could. I didn't do this to be a hero or a martyr I did it to help the business survive and continue to trade. I feel for rugby playe...

Already mentioned on the non Tigers thread.
People seem to be giving it as much credence as the Itoje to Tigers rumour, but I for one wouldn’t be surprised.
Does that mean we are getting Itoje then? :smt003

Re: LFC Plc Announcement - Off the market!

Gutted - I'd saved £60 to make an offer as well. Given the uncertainty in the world, rugby and the markets (understatement in all three) it is a sensible decision. Doesn't mean the club won't be put back up for sale in a year or so's time. Let's hope we are a much more attractive proposition by then...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

Are rugby and football contracts fixed term contracts? Is this why contracts are often for 4 years or less, as they do not attract redundancy payments as per the attached? https://archive.acas.org.uk/index.aspx?articleid=4587 I would think that any early termination, would attract notice pay, but o...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

Surely if a players contract is terminated early and paid up then they have effectively been paid a for the duration of that contract and hence there would be no saving. I'm not sure, there's nothing in the rules that says compensation for early termination of contract would be counted. Usually, co...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 2

with Harrison leaving after tomorrow, is his cap spent for the season or do we get the remainder back? He must be on a decent wage so that would free us to make another signing Salary caps work on the total amount actually spent in the season - not the projected amount. So we "get back" the salary ...

Re: Nigel Wray Gawn

What would happen if we were caught manipulating the cap, would that be ok? Definitely not OK - as that would show the incompetency of the club is even greater than we all think. After all, Saracens manipulated the cap and then won stuff; if we have manipulated the cap and ended up second bottom of...

Re: Scrums of comfort

Still think having a solid scrum is essential - England's failings in the World Cup final really started with the scrum. We beat Harlequins thanks to our scrum (and having one of their players yellow-carded for it). Doesn't mean you need a dominant scrum, but being able to not go backwards (on all p...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

Notwithstanding press speculation, I would have thought the investments involving Itoje and Farrell would not contravene the SCR as they are (presumably) the marquee players and their remuneration is exempt from the cap calculation. Quite possible - in which case the other three players are getting...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

Hmmm so does that mean that Wray only invested in year one..... but since that the players involved continue to reap whatever profits accrue from their companies? As per my post above, I expect that’s exactly what’s happened. There has probably been multiple investments over the years, but they kne...
