Re: Steve Borthwick

I suspect the board are fed up of the downturn and I would imagine the player's influence has slipped somewhat because of that. The England quintet of Dan Cole, Manu Tuilagi, Ben Youngs, George Ford & Ellis Genge have all been coached by him at England level and I thought those players held a lot o...

Great work RB, good to see it all laid out. Quick question what does a non-exec board member do ?

Re: Transfers and Rumours Non-Tigers 2019-20

Izack Rodda would fit the bill in terms of a lineout leader we are looking for. (Pretty sure off to Japan anyway) Yes - Rugby Australia and Queensland Rugby Union have released Izack Rodda, Harry Hockings and Isaac Lucas after they refused Covid-19-related pay cuts. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugb...
