Re: Price Waterhouse hired for restart.

It gives a clear indication that the powers that run PRL and custodians of elite professional game finally appreciate that they have made a complete mess of it. Or does it? In my career when things go awry the best cop out is “it is not my/our fault it was those consultants.”

Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

I am reminded of a comment from a skilled auctioneer when the business I worked for went bust. He was cataloguing assets for sale and I was appalled at some of the values. He said “it is much more economic to have a smaller piece of the cake than a large piece of nothing.” The latter will apply when...

Re: Glynn and Mele leaving the club

Will they be the last? It seems to be logically economic, my sympathy to both men but will it be the end or will there be more before the AGM.

Re: Review recommends change in attitude to restore trust in Premiership clubs

The report is excellent , exposes most if not all the malpractice within the premiership and is correct that it is “all or nothing”. I am however a little uneasy about the reaction of PRL, I read yesterday but cannot find it now comments that they would cherry pick the changes. It may have been genu...

Re: Simon Cohen leaves with immediate effect

Not surprised at all. The abysmal performance of the last few years must stop. Necessary changes to the coaching structure have been made but the coaches did not make all the decisions so it is only right that there must be changes at the top whether this is the only change time will tell but the ab...

Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

Worthless prima donnas - they will still have an income, I know people with much lower salaries who now have nothing they have been sacked. I used to be proud of tigers -member, season ticket holder avid fan but now the only thing I feel is ashamed - poor performances, friction against management an...

Re: SARRIES FUTURE

As there has been no reduction in staff or no apparent reduction in the salary bill I expect that while they are winning the championship a movement will be started to increase the salary cap and then ring fence after they are promoted.

Re: SARRIES FUTURE

I am with you Noggs, their continued actions over the past years indicate there is no contrition but a continued cynical effort to keep going on in the same fashion,
. They give the game very bad stink.

Re: Sale vs Leicester - 21st February 2020

My opinion is that the BOD are only looking at the finances and some senior players their international careers, no one is concerned about the abysmal way we play. The Board console themselves that a) I am selling up so why bother and b) at least we will have a hotel and car park, which they think i...

Re: RFU halves Championship funding.

I said it before rugby union suffers from appalling bad management. Another decision where money damages the game, the premiership will be ring fenced and several championship clubs will go bust. Worse of all the incentive for a lot of aspiring English players is damaged and the premiership clubs wi...

If they broke the rules yes and I am English. Being partisan does not mean disregarding the rules.

Re: It just gets worse for Saracens

It is not about gaining advantage or not. It is about fairness and keeping a level playing field. If you cannot abide by the rules throw them out!
