Cockers? Can we keep him?

Post by cornish tigress » Tue Dec 03, 2013 6:23 pm

Not sure if this has been covered recently as haven't been on the forum in an age, but I know Mr Scully's contract is coming up at the end of December and I think he has been a great find. Are we keeping him do you know?

I'd imagine we'll be attempting to shoe horn him in to the cap any which way - for a bloke at his first professional club he's been getting an awful lot of game time for someone supposedly dispensable.

According to Simon Cohen on tonight's Rugby Hour they're trying to find the money to keep him until the end of the season if possible. There's no money left in the injury dispensation pot as we've used it all (all £400,000 of it) so it's a case of trying to find some but still keep under the salary cap.
Blimey...

Which gives the lie to the constant assertion (by other than Saffacens) that we break the cap.....

Hopefully our accountants can think of something maybe, because he would be a great replacement for Hamilton.

Could it be a case of bonuses in other contracts(IIRC bonuses come under the cap)If Tigers do well more is paid out so no room in cap, do less well more room in cap.

Please can someone remind me which players have we signed as injury dispensation that has cost us £400,000? I can only think of Hepetema?

Matera is a dispensation and i think Comacho could have been a dispensation for Benjamin too

To be fair Matera has only been available for 2 games so far due to international commitments and HC games and he played in 1 of them

OK but I hope we do see him in action again soon and not for him to disappear for months into the Tigers manufacturing plant given the fact that we have so many injuries and we signed him as an injury replacement. :smt023

Well you won't see him in the next 2 games as he can't play in the pool stages. Can we really throw him in against Sarries away in the third game, especially if like Mele he can't understand a word our Kiwi contingent like Waldrom and Salvi say to him!
