Former Prop wrote:Mercury today reports that Ian Humphreys and Jim Hamilton have been linked with moves to Ulster and Edinburgh respectively.

More worryingly, it also reports, that Luke Abraham is a target for Sale.
So what the mercury has REALLY done is copied directly, 2 days after, the Rugby Times rumours page... good journalism :smt002

Rugby Times also states (correctly) that Luke has another year to run on his contract...and he's english - why would he want to move to Sale? :smt002

Humphreys has always said that he one day wants to go and play for ulster.

What about EOS as the new backs coach as it looks like he's going ot get the boot.

To be honest I doubt the tigers would miss any of those players due to leave(bar perhaps Smith)
All the incoming players are of much higher quality

yh the incomers are probably better but we gotta get them first!!!

Also i cant see Evans and Hernandez coming unless we get rid of goodey which i dont think we should as he has performed very well this season(for the majority) and when hes playin well stands flat and passes people into the gap

Agreed. He's inept and we don't want him.

Just to give this nicely simmering pot another little stir. My son, currently on holiday in New Zealand (Auckland), says that the NZ press is strongly circulating the story that with the Guinness salary cap about to be increased, Dan Carter is being strongly tipped to join Tigers!

all very well salary cap going up and recruiting lots of foriegners BUT What about a)number of overseas players allowed (ie can't play Mauger, Ayerza, Carter etc in same team) and b) is the no reposibility left to produce domestic development players?
