Re: Manu Tuilagi

Thank god that's over. I note Steevie quoted his commercial value above his playing value in terms of priorities. I guess he can go round and say hello to the 250 people in the hospitality suite and then the rest of the home crowd before half time :smt002 And we'll get less walk up fans without the...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Episode 3 The revenge of the Contracts.

Someone asked on a forum if we were picking up the 300k deficit owed to Manu. This was the response "You really couldn't make it up. From what I understand, the six players will go not just for the breach of contract which is almost absurdly easy to prove and document, but also for breach of confid...

Re: Manu Tuilagi

Can you just imagine the fall out. Sale players, we need you to take X pay cut over the next X period in order to save the club. Players sign, with much encouragement. Less than two weeks later you sign one of the most expensive players in the league. If I was one of those who compromised my earning...

V is going to be badly missed. Have to wonder now - his wording is pretty conclusive that someone other than him made the decision.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Episode 3 The revenge of the Contracts.

Of course... Tigers might be HAVING to cut beyond the need to pay off those contracts. But the long term club interests require it to do so. A Salary is only part of the player cost. Despite some of them being huge the overall cost considerations mean it’s in the clubs best interests to cancel/breec...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Episode 3 The revenge of the Contracts.

Looking at who has stayed, extended and confirmed gone there is an argument that the club has used covid as an opportunity to accelerate the departure of these five players and I strongly suspect that is why there has been reported discontent - rather than the cuts to salary itself. Using Covid as ...

Re: Manu Tuilagi

If it’s sale you’ve got to wonder what happens when the rfu contribution drops off a cliff. They have a small fan base, they already spent all the cvc sweetie jar contents and they have been importing skills at quite the expense lately. There is to be a major risk to any UK club taking on the costs ...

Ellis has done that himself, or at least somebody has, it’s a photoshop. https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=England%20trio%20Ben%20Youngs%2C%20George%20Ford%20and%20Ellis%20Genge%20agree%20new%20Leicester%20deals&url=https://www.bt.com/sport/news/england-trio-ben-youngs-george-ford-and-ellis-gen...
