Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

the names were in the public domain as soon as anyone leaked them. Once the talks had concluded the CEO had every right to name those who had decided not to take the revised contracts the same as the club will have to publish the names of all contracted players at some stage

Re: New Rugby Coronavirus Laws

I didn't think the scrum was an "option" when an attacker is held up in goal. eliminating reset scrums will be impossible unless all scrums become uncontested. currently if you have a dominant scrum and have the option on the 5 metre line you will always look to score a try, the removal of the optio...

Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

Another possible suggestion - the payments to international players should be made to the club rather than the player thus compensating the club for supplying the player ie if you wish to use my players you have to rent them from me.

Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

a radical suggestion - established international players should have their club salary reduced by the amount they could earn from international appearances, thus making player salaries relative to their availability

Re: Transfers and Rumours Non-Tigers 2019-20

I don't think anyone has said that the marquee player system should end immediately but surely it should be ended in 3 years time thus allowing for current contracts to run through.

Re: Another hotel for a rugby club

If Richardson can afford to build this then surely he should have to pay off Wasps existing debts first !!!!!!

Re: Umaga raps English obsessions

strange how he goes on about New Zealand way - who were the first international side to put a player built like a back row forward on the wing internationally!!! Jonah Lomu was a great player but would have been a brilliant back row forward if he had been played there.

Re: Provisional Premiership Return Date ?

would the club be able to accommodate all season ticket holders? If only seated supporters were allowed would terrace st holders be allocated seats? Would there have to be refunds for st holders who normally stand or were moved to cheaper areas of the stands to ensure social distancing? A lot to be ...

Re: “Now or Never for Game to Reboot”

a few thoughts: 1: learn from football - no club games on international weekends. 2: 6 nations to be treated as world cup practice - play the matches over 5 consecutive weekends, squad size and player replacement rules as per world cup. 3: Autumn Internationals - 3 only on fixed weekends, players re...

Re: 4 weeks for Manu 10 for Marler

All seems harsh to me, just play on. The punch from the French lad apart which as it was instigated by some scowling collar grabbing mischief-maker probably warrants two weeks. Ten weeks just for a bit of fun. I never thought I'd see Alun Whinge-Jones joining the Me-toos. He's been compared to John...

Re: Tigers vs Worcester

We had plenty last season too. Actually I thought the ref last week better than many we have had. He was right about the Worth knock on that cancelled Veainu's try and in the case of Olowofela's " second" he was correct to check and I can see why he gave an on field decision of no try, the pictures...

Re: Change of Tune

Benny hill theme tune seems more appropriate just now. :smt005 (not a serious post, for the pedants). I'm with the Benny Hill thing. It could also replace the warm up. They could also come out in Morris dancing kit and beat the bejesus out of opposition players with their sticks as they went past. ...

Re: It just gets worse for Saracens

i'm sure the process of renewing a work permit isn't a 5 minute job so just cant believe that it wasn't known well before the day that the work permit was going to expire, to call it an "administrative oversight" is really stretching it. If I was in charge at any of the clubs in Saracens pool and Gl...

Re: England in the 6N

I've long been an advocate of the 6 nations being played over 5 consecutive weekends. It would serve as good practice for the world cup. The squads should be fixed in the same way as a world cup squad is. Along side this there should be no premiership fixtures during this period. Premiership players...
