Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

Pay cuts are a thing that some companies may have to look at to survive. Not everyone can deal with a cut but if it means stilling a job, the short term sacrifice would be worth it.

Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

With greatest respect to the players, staff and fans, the club need to make some tough decisions to protect it from going out of business. Games not being played is revenue that they are not getting which would normally support the costs. Those costs still remain in part and this is draining finance...

Re: Jonah Holmes

There is a piece in Wales online linking Jonah with a potential move to the Dragons so that he can further his international career. I hope this is just a case of lazy journalist speculation rather than fact. Sorry i did try and copy the link but it wouldn't take. https://www.walesonline.co.uk/spor...

Re: The Future of the Prem

BT Sport have invested a lot of money in the game and if no further games are played / televised this may well impact on Premiership Rugby as they may be asked to reimburse some of the finance. Not a very easy situation but the safety of all must be a priority over rugby at this time.

Re: Still stuck in the mud! - Development updates

Can confirm that the area has been cordoned off and there were a few workmen on the site and some digging was taking place.
Had to visit LRI so saw this on way out.

We won't know the effect of distancing for another two weeks and then need several weeks if the exponential curve flattens to check it is working (despite the political :censored: this is wha...

Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

Some of the players are being selfish to sue, the ones on peanuts maybe not but I think certain players need to look at the bigger picture. Everyone has their own circumstances............there may be a high earner on £200000 a year and has a Mortgag with say a large payment and other expenses........

Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

Supermarkets need to buy the goods in and then need to pay the staff. They have taken on more staff to try and make it easier for the rest of us. I doubt their profits are excessive but without them we would struggle to survive. They are not increasing prices as some of the small stores are.
