Re: Proof if proof were needed

Quins have some quality players in their squad but when you consider that they (marginally and accidentally) breached the cap last season, it makes you wonder how, or if, some other teams, no matter what their attractions, manage to stay anywhere close to the limits.

Re: Manu to Racing 92?

He could get a job? Assuming he's not putting 80%+ away for retirement, what do you suggest that would maintain his accustomed lifestyle? There probably isn't a job that he could do that will pay as generously as he is currently paid. I didn't realise that once one career is over, the next one must...

Correct me if I'm wrong too but weren't we one of the clubs that voted AGAINST an investigation?
I believe Tigers voted to suspend the investigation, along with everybody else with the honourable exceptions of Wasps and Harlequins.

Re: Proof if proof were needed

That is from 5 years ago. Nearer three. What do you think has changed? The report is dated September 8, 2015 and follows a "nine-month investigation" and the investigation will be into historical breaches - so takes you way back into 2014. What has changed? Well for a start, I suspect part of the c...

Re: Proof if proof were needed

We used to have a starting XV and bench packed full of internationals. I very much doubt that Sarries are breaching the cap. Playing for a winning team, with a great work ethic and off-field atmosphere means they can offer less than we could for the same players. Where have you been? https://www.th...

Re: Manu to Racing 92?

A few hundred grand a year doesn't pay the bills? Yes. It really does. At the moment it does but that isn’t going to last forever. My point is he needs to make his money now as not sure what he’s going to do after He could get a job? Assuming he's not putting 80%+ away for retirement, what do you s...

Being more than a little old fashioned This "run away to the highest bidder" disappoints me. It is not unexpected however.
What price loyalty? Just another old fashioned value killed in a modern game.

Re: Proof if proof were needed

, There are things other than salary caps. They are the old fashioned non cash items. I've said it elsewhere. New cars, free holidays, etc. etc. Need I say more? You needn't say more. You should try at least a cursory scan of the cap regulations. And all of us with any acumen are aware that the RFU...

Re: The Six Nations 2019

Agree totally that it wasn’t a yellow card, but wasn’t there a directive bought in a few seasons ago about pulling other players head guards. That was what kicked it all off between Haskell and Marler a couple of seasons back and going back even further Ayerza and Marler I thought that also, the hi...

Re: The Six Nations 2019

A truly great showing from England yesterday, especially in the first half. A brilliant performance from J.M., who ran riot around the French defenders throughout the match. :smt023 Yes, for those who like the technical side, here's Jonny May's heat map for the first half: https://www.reddit.com/r/...

Re: The Derby Round v Northampton - Premiership Rugby Cup

47 - 20 :smt009 Saints did score 3 tries in the last 5 mins, from what I've read it sounds like it was a lot closer than the scoreline suggests So Tigers just gave up at the end? Try count before the end rush was 6-2 I think. Not close in my book. Outmatched and outgunned, played their guts out for...

Re: Only 4 points away from 3rd.

[quote=Scuttle post_id=706125 time=<a href="tel:1546770674">1546770674</a> user_id=12205] I always thought our inability to secure bonus points last season was a material part of not making the top 4. We seemed to win small and lose big compared to other teams. So it is interesting to note that, at...

Re: Back to Europe

I don't think that's far off. Possibly a time to rest Youngs, G Ford and May (maybe Tuilagi too) and bring Shazam back into the squad. A chance to bring in Aspland-Robinson on to the bench with Holmes and Olowofela on the wings (as I'm not sure if we have the permitted number of changes left in the...
