Allegedly 500k over salary cap
If we are £500k over the cap then Ged Glynn and Simon Cohen need to be sacked for incompetence, there's no way our squad is worth that much

£500k over the cap?

IF true, that really would be the icing on the cake. This season has been an absolute disaster.

If True wasn't that the same guy who started the whole MOC will be kicked out in feb and Tigers where getting rid of Deacon, Murphy and Stanko?

If we are I bet Wasps and Sarries are as well.

Putting this out there but Sale fan stirring up something before a big game v Sale that could secure Sale a Champions cup spot. (Just saying)

Good point RB. I hope you're right.

I mean I don't know at all it could be a possibility, I haven't heard anything but then again I wouldn't as I can't see the club advertising that.
If it's true than an actual Journo will pick it up and run with it like with the Bath and Sarries thing simple as that, Until then i'm going to be sceptical about it.

But wouldn't be surprised either way really seems like something the people in charge would do TBH.

500K thought is alot of cap and not sure where it would be spent extra wise, Toomua and Manu will be off the books outside that we don't have the biggest squad or the biggest of names? Unless we need to chop 500K due to the new signings coming in and he's got it mixed up maybe? Again all speculation.

Cohen seemingly denying the 500k overspend on Twitter. Now he’s obviously not going to admit or detail any spend issues on social media, but you’d think, if it was true, he’d just keep his mouth shut altogether...

With absolutely no evidence to back that tweet up at all.



End of.

Exactly, a Sale fan just trying to rub salt into the wound.

Fed up with all this speculation. Can’t Tigers just come out and give us some good news regarding recruitment. Then we can start looking forwards to next season as this one has been a bust.

Simon Cohen has already dismissed the claims and has tweeted:

"We may be short in a couple areas of what we’d like in an ideal world but spend right up to cap and allowances so difficult to mange differently. Maybe have an open forum to explain options and thought processes when squad is finalised?"

Great article by Andy Goode on Falcons, Goneva and Tigers

https://www.rugbypass.com/news/tigers-l ... andy-goode

This is perhaps the most perceptive comment

Tigers invested a lot in George Ford but that’s meant some of their other signings for this season and the next campaign have been pretty underwhelming.
Without hope we are nothing, keep the faith, a Tiger for eternity
