Did read he was waiting for his work permit.

The Australian Pavlova is more meringuey than custardy!

Wormus why should he be in custody at Heathrow? He has a full valid work permit
and although Australian I believe that either is grandfather or great grandfather came from Northern Ireland so if he sought dual nationality he'd probably get it.
Please give the man space and time to work, then if he is not performing next season that would be time enough for your barbed comments, of which I'm sure you have many!

There was a bloke sitting alone in the Brickies yesterday evening who was completely legless!
Could be he's already in town getting himself psyched up for the task ahead!

Apparently it has been delayed and he probably won't get a visa until June now so Murphy has been asked to run the team until the end of the season.*

You may have 30+ years in the travel industry and hibernate in the Try line club but I can only repeat what the club advised on the appointment of Matt O'Connor "He will begin his new role at Leicester in early April, subject to VISA" My single line comment above is not "barbed" in any way & I do not have any let alone "many".In fact Custardy is smooth! It is you that gets more like Hans Christian Anderson the more you post.He does not have a full valid work permit as explained by the Club "Subject to Visa" see report - http://www.leicestertigers.com/news/264 ...

Wormus I'm not accusing you of any bias, in fact I agree with most of your posts except the odd one or two, I'm just pointing out that when he does arrive we must give him a chance as at best there is only 2 months of the season left if we make the Twickenham final at the end of May. Far too short a period to judge anyone.
By the way I've never hibernated anywhere certainly not in the Try line club which if you pop into when we play the Sale match on the 29th of April I would be delighted to buy you a drink. Unfortunately on the 15th of April when we play the Falcons it's members only as we are having our annual Try Line club dinner on that day before the match kicks off.

I thought this post was 100% tongue in cheek, with a 75% probability of a deliberate spelling mistake. However, not to be taken seriously.
I could agree with you...but then we'd both be wrong.

Seems Mauger got judged, as to whether he could do the Head Coaches job, within that time frame.

I know I joked about his visa being delayed the other day but genuinely I have heard it has actually been delayed so he won't be here until the season has finished.
