Re: Simon Cohen takes a different view.......as do Glaws

I would still like to the see them bring in 1. A minimum senior squad size (45) 2. A minimum contract (100k) 3. A maximum non English qualified limit (15 per squad). Some good simple ideas in that IMO. Another would be ways of dealing with agents, some solid rules need enforcing IMO whereby situati...

Re: An evening with Cockers

I would suggest that some are misunderstanding this event due to the low cost, at only £10 it could suggest that the event is so low key that it could be free, that is wrong IMO. This event has not been arranged as some previous open information forums for the club to put forward it's point of view ...

Re: Simon Cohen takes a different view.......as do Glaws

The salary cap shows little signs of slowing down. £500,000 pa is a bit different to beer tokens! No idea what the top salary was ten years back but it seems to have spiralled significantly and I believe it will continue. How long before we see the first £1,000,000 pa wage, can it seriously be affo...

Re: Simon Cohen takes a different view.......as do Glaws

From posts on this and other threads it seems that quite a few on here think the salary cap is already too high. Presumably this means that those who say this must believe PRL teams should either pay players less and/or have smaller squads from which I can only deduce that they are asserting that t...

The Robin Hood Stand! Finally a new song to sing! :smt005 Who dares warm up tights now! Although I have major reservations about the new name, it does hand us a song that everyone can sing.

Re: Jones names provisional elite player squad

It does make me wonder, given that Tom Youngs spent most of last season out with a serious back injury how much work did he do on the aspects of his game that saw him left out last year... Maybe it's as simple as the EPS being increased from 32 to 45. Youngs gets in as fourth hooker, and that may h...

Re: Simon Cohen takes a different view.......as do Glaws

The marquee player salaries outside of the cap were a very bad idea IMO!
To elaborate on this the marquee salaries have driven up wages and pressure within the cap in just one season.

Re: Money where your mouth is time

Only problem with predicting 1-12 is that it isn't like the Premier League where 1st = champions. I'd love to be wrong but Saracens looked nailed on champions to me. Agree in the play offs Sarries will be difficult to stop. Saints and Quins have often shown the type of strike play that can threaten...

Re: Money where your mouth is time

Just can't separate them with the head this year, as difficult as I can remember and could be a lower points tally with how competitive it is! Must be Tigers on top if put some heart into it, got a fantastic squad of players that picks itself and if used well around that. Sarries just had a blinding...
