*Potentially £4.5m per club assuming 13 clubs (ie incl Sarries)
or virtually covering the 21/22 salary cap level if only split across the 12 clubs actually in the premiership

Re: Coaching Staff vs International Players

The problem with "stuff it up the jumper and meander downfield" is that whereas we used to be the masters of it, the powers that be decided that you should get an advantage for stopping a maul rather than for gaining ground, I remember a game several years ago where we claimed a lineout ball on our ...

Challenge cup 20/21

So we play 4 games against teams from a list of 6 French and 4 pro14 teams. I'm guessing that means 3 French and either a Welsh or Italian side. Does anyone know if there is any sort of seeding for the games or are we at the mercy of the organisers?

Re: Freddie Steward

there are a couple of things that definitely need policing at the maul and they are the transfer of the ball and the attacking players joining the maul. Recently i have noticed a number of tries scored where there was no way the ball was at the back of the maul especially as the ball carrier had bro...

Re: Toulon v Tigers - Challenge Cup Semi

I've not seen him play but as a 19 year old Irish U20's international he hopefully is ready for the step up, which in this case is a big one. :smt027 Really surprised Kelly has been picked - he’s a good prospect but surely Porter, Steward, Worth, and Williams are ahead of him? Anyone agree or am I ...

Re: Freddie Steward

Rugby (Union) is and should remain a sport that can be played and won in different ways. “Attacking” play does not necessarily make for an attractive game. If you don’t like mauling, scrummaging or goal kicks then there are other sports that might appeal to you more It's not goal kicks that I disli...

Re: Uncontested scrums

even if he had passed the defence was set and it would have been a gamble as to whether the outside player would have scored. we will never know now but hopefully if we are ever in a similar situation we will have a ref who applies the laws properly.

Re: Uncontested scrums

the worst example I can remember was tigers v bath at the then walkers stadium in a european game we were driving their pack back at a 5metre scrum and it collapsed 3 or 4 times , the french ref yellow carded a prop so they sent on a replacement prop who promptly collapsed the scrum and was yellow c...

Re: Annoyance over forward passes

what i found strange was that as Tom is trying to ground the ball an Irish player dives in from the side and goes off his feet obscuring the view. If he had done that at a breakdown it would have been a penalty so why was it not a penalty try and therefore a yellow card ?

Re: Annoyance over forward passes

the simple answer to the forward pass is to go back to the old way - if the ball doesn't go clearly backwards then its a forward pass

Re: Next week versus Bath then Irish!

By "showing " do they mean on actual tv channel or are they including streaming games on the bt sport website? I think the latter which is why you would have to register for the pass if you are not a BT sport subscriber
